Rapaport: Raiders will sign TE Jared Cook

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The Raiders are going to sign FA TE Jared Cook. A huge addition for QB Derek Carr and their offense.

Fantasy Impact:

Once Cook returned from his high-ankle sprain in Week 10, the Packers made a concerted effort to involve him in the offense. Over the final 10 games (including the playoffs) he averaged 4.2 catches for 55 yards and 0.30 touchdowns per game. That equates to 11.5 PPG, or low-end TE1 numbers. It's a nice signing for the Raiders, who seemingly want to involve the position more in their passing attack. Derek Carr gets a bump and Cook is in the mix as a late-round tight end.

Packers sign TE Martellus Bennett

ESPN - [Full Article]

Former New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is signing with the Green Bay Packers.

Tight end Jared Cook, meanwhile, will sign elsewhere as a free agent, a source told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Fantasy Impact:

When the Packers broke off negotiations with Jared Cook earlier today, it looked like Green Bay would be without a dynamic presence at tight end. Not so fast. Bennett finished the season as the #10 fantasy tight end, but he was pretty nicked up for most the season, which possibly limited his production. He still needs to undergo surgery to clean up his ankle, but provided he makes a full recovery, this is a great pickup for the Packers. Bennett should be a solid TE1 in 2017.

Packer moves could signify return of TE Jared Cook

Saturday, November 19, 2016, 9:43pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Carl Bradford from their practice squad and released tight end Justin Perillo, a move that signals the likely return of starting tight end Jared Cook.

The 6-foot-4 Cook has been out since Week 3 with an ankle injury.

Cook could give quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big target sorely needed over the middle help open up the field for receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Without Perillo, Richard Rodgers is the only other tight end on the Packers' active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Cook (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Cook may be able to return this week as the story indicated. Richard Rodgers has not played well in his absence, so Cook will be given every opportunity to win the job outright.
