Cook’s first season with the Saints didn’t get off to a great start. Through the first four games, he caught 8-of-18 targets for 90 yards and was the No. 33 tight end at that point in the season. But then the proverbial worm turned. Even though he missed three games midseason with an ankle injury, he proceeded to gain at least 50 yards and/or score a touchdown in his final 11 games, including the team’s lone playoff game against the Vikings. From Week 10 on (when both Cook and Drew Brees were healthy), Cook was the No. 1 tight end in the final eight games. He should pick up where he left off in 2020, though free agent acquisition Emmanuel Sanders may pinch his targets.
