New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 37 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cook has caught a touchdown in each of the last two weeks but has posted at least 40 yards only once this season. He could be a bye week replacement in some leagues next week but is not a weekly starting option.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook posted four grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Cook had season highs in catches and yardage while finding his first way into the end zone for the first time. It still wasn't a huge line worthy of TE1 status, but it's a start. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 at Jacksonville.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes (on six targets) for 21 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Coming off a strong 2018 in Oakland, Cook has been a complete bust over the first month, managing just 90 yards receiving and no TDs in four games. If you can carry Cook on your reserve roster for a while longer, do so. If not, it might be time to move on.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Cook has not been a big factor in the passing game over the first three weeks and only caught one pass in his first game with Teddy Bridgewater as the starter. Fantasy players may want to keep Cook in the bench until he starts posting better numbers.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (not injury related) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Cook has caught just five passes for an unimpressive 69 yards and no touchdowns through his first three games with the Saints. He's a bottom-tier TE1 who has lost much of his appeal since QB Drew Brees went down to injury.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Cook has had a disappointing start to the season with only five receptions and 69 yards in three games. He will need to continue to build chemistry with Teddy Bridgewater and could be benched if better options are available.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook managed only one catch on two targets in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Cook has a mere five receptions on 12 targets through three games, hardly what anyone expected when he was signed to a two-year, $15.5 million contract this spring to be the best tight end in New Orleans since Jimmy Graham. While many of his fantasy owners may have no other choice but to continue starting him, he's quickly become a TE2 - something that probably will not change with the Saints likely to play conservatively with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook had two receptions for 25 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Cook was targeted seven times.
Huddle Up: After catching 68 passes last season with Oakland, Cook has done little in two games with the Saints. A pair of injuries (Drew Brees and Tre'Quan Smith) could increase his role, however, so don't be too hasty in moving away from Cook.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook posted just two receptions for 37 yards on three targets in the Week 1 win against the Houston Texans on Monday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Cook, still just 32 years old, is expected to be a nice fit in the high-octane New Orleans offense, but he got off to a rather poor start. Don't give up on him after just one mediocre game. He still has low-end TE1 ability. The Saints will travel to meet the Rams in Week 2.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has been seeing 'a lot of looks' from QB Drew Brees during training camp, according to Luke Johnson of USA Today Sports.
Huddle Up: Cook is coming off a career year in Oakland, and while there are a few more mouths to feed in New Orleans, he is still a safe bet to deliver midrange TE1 numbers.
