Draft note
by John Paulsen
Given his 15th-round ADP and a favorable quarterback situation, he’s likely to outproduce the draft capital required to get him. He’s still athletic and posted low-end TE1 numbers in the 11 games that Drew Brees was healthy last season. Outside of maybe Austin Ekeler, the Chargers don’t have a clear No. 2 option in the passing offense (Mike Williams?) and Hunter Henry garnered 93 targets in 14 games last season. Most of that work could go straight to Cook.

LAC TE Jared Cook - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Ravens

Only five tight ends have run more routes than Jared Cook in 2021, who has 155 so far. He is 10th with 26 targets and tied for 13th with 17 receptions. He also sits 13th in receiving yards 210. But he has just one touchdown catch in 2021, and Week 5 saw him catch a single ball for 29 yards. It was his third game with less than 30 yards in five this year. Cook currently sits as the TE15, with just one top 12 showing on the year.

He may find things more to his liking in Week 6. The Ravens are currently 26th in aFPA to tight ends. The Ravens and Buccaneers are tied for the most receptions allowed to the position with 36 each, while only the Chiefs have given up more receiving yards than the 420 allowed by the Ravens. Cook is projected to be a low-end TE1 in Week 6, although he may be in line for an increased workload if Mike Williams misses the game or plays at less than full health.
