As has been custom throughout his career, Rams TE Jared Cook struggled to replicate or even approximate his dominating opening week performance in 2013 the rest of the season. After the eye-opening performance against the Cardinals, Cook became the focal point of opposing defenses with additional and more physical coverage thrown his way on a regular basis.
Cook didn't exceed 45 receiving yards in any of the next nine games and didn't score another touchdown until Week 9 against his former team. He finished with 51 catches for 671 yards and five touchdowns. But much of that production came in two games and Cook also struggled with drops, finishing with six for the season.
Cook wasn't consistent but it's something he's working on for this year. He was also hurt by the loss of QB Sam Bradford, so his return should help. Cook is more of a TE2 target in leagues where you need one. Other than that, he's a guy to target on bye weeks as a fill in until he starts to show that consistency.
