Cook was targeted twice, recording a five-yard reception in Sunday's win over Seattle. Sunday was the second time in two weeks that Cook has been limited to a single catch and third time in four weeks he has been held under 25 yards receiving. The Rams close the season against a weak 49ers pass defense, but it would be a shock if the team opts to air in out. In Case Keenum's last three starts, the Rams have run the ball 58.6 percent of the time.
Cook caught a four passes for 64 yards on a team-high six targets in Thursday's 31-23 win over the Buccaneers. With Case Keenum attempting just 17 passes, Cook was the only Ram to record more than three targets. Despite being a focal point of the offense and turning in an efficient outing, he was still unable to find the end zone, thus drawing one week closer to a touchdown-free season. Cook's Week 16 prospects in that department aren't promising, as the Rams have to face the Seahawks on the road.
Cook caught just three of his nine targets for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The big tight end led the Rams in targets during the blowout loss, but the ineptitude of Nick Foles against the ferocious Cardinals defense led to lean offensive output. Cook has seen his share of targets this season, but he has yet to score a touchdown and is now averaging just over 33 receiving yards per game. Cook remains nothing more than a weekly dart throw, and he will continue as such in next week's matchup with the Lions.
Cook caught four passes off of six targets for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The 58 yards were Cook's most since Week 1. He ranks second on the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. Among fellow tight ends, Cook ranks 20th in the league in catches and 16th in receiving yardage, making him a solid-but-not-great backup tight end. The fact that he remains scoreless through this point of the season prevents him from being a legitimate fantasy starter.
Cook caught four of the six passes thrown his way for 31 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to Baltimore. Cook's six targets led the team, but he failed to turn that attention into much significant production. He and fellow tight end Lance Kendricks finished as St. Louis' top two receivers on the afternoon, and the two continue to siphon value away from each other.
