Cook brought in all five of his targets for 54 yards in the Saints' 26-20 overtime wild-card loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
As expected, Cook was one of Drew Brees' primary targets in Sunday's loss, though he failed to find the end zone or break off any long gainers.

Cook brought in both of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 42-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Cook (concussion) is expected to play Monday against the Colts, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
While the Saints have yet to release their final injury report, it seems likely Cook will either earn a questionable tag or be cleared outright, as head coach Sean Payton seemed nearly certain his tight end would be available.

Cook took a step forward from Thursday's limited practice, upgrading to full participation just five days after he suffered a concussion in Sunday's 48-46 loss to the 49ers. The tight end will have an extra day to exit the concussion protocol before his Week 15 matchup, with the Saints hosting the Colts on Monday. Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Cook wasn't wearing a non-contact jersey during Friday's practice, a development that bodes well for his chances of receiving clearance from an independent neurologist.
Cook (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
It's the best the Saints could have hoped for after the tight end suffered a head injury during last week's 48-46 loss to the 49ers. Cook has already taken a big step toward getting back on the field, and he'll have an extra day to recover as the Saints prepare for a Monday matchup with the Colts. That said, there's never any guarantee when it comes to the timeline for recovering from a concussion.
Cook suffered a concussion during Sunday's contest against the 49ers, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.
On his second touchdown catch of the first quarter, Cook took a hit to the head from San Francisco cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon. Cook made a brief visit to the sideline tent and then went to the locker room, after which the concussion was confirmed.

Cook recorded touchdown grabs on both of the Saints' first two drives, but on the second occasion, he took a hit to the head from 49ers cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon.

Cook caught three of six targets for 85 yards in the Saints' 26-18 win over the Falcons on Thursday.
The day could have been even bigger had he not dropped a would-be touchdown in the end zone. Despite the miscue, Cook paced the team in receiving yards and had another solid game. His late-season surge continues, as Cook has now averaged 73 yards over his past four contests, including two touchdowns in that span. Even against a tough 49ers defense, Cook looks like a solid fantasy option in Week 14.
Cook caught six of eight targets for 99 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-31 win against the Panthers.
The 32-year-old tight end finds himself amid a midseason renaissance, having accounted for 70-plus receiving yards or a touchdown in five consecutive games. Cook got off to an ice-cold start to the season with eight combined catches for 90 yards and zero touchdowns Weeks 1 through 4, but as the campaign has progressed, he's seen a higher percentage of offensive opportunities -- as exhibited by his per-game target share enhancing to 5.8 over his past six games, compared to just four targets per game Weeks 1 through 3. Cook's upcoming matchup against Atlanta does not provide optimal circumstances for a breakout performance, however, as the Falcons contained Tampa Bay tight ends to one combined catch for 10 yards Sunday, though Tampa Bay's offense under Bruce Arians hasn't featured much of the tight end in 2019.
Cook secured both of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 34-17 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Cook came down with a hard-fought three-yard touchdown reception just past the midway point of the second quarter, his third score of the season. The veteran tight end has notched all of them in the last four games, so he's seemingly carving out more of a niche in the offense as the season unfolds. Cook remains a solid complementary target in the Saints' passing attack heading into a Week 12 divisional battle against the Panthers.
Cook recorded six catches for 74 receiving yards on 10 targets during Sunday's 26-9 loss to the Falcons.
Returning from an ankle injury that withheld him from New Orleans' games against Chicago and Arizona prior to the Week 9 bye, Cook resumed his recent streak of fantasy utility. Since averaging a meager two catches and 22.5 receiving yards per game between Weeks 1 and 4, Cook has logged more than four receptions and 50 receiving yards per game over his past three games, with both of his touchdown scores on the year coming during that span. Upcoming next, the veteran Cook will be facing off against a Buccaneers defense that entered the weekend ranking as a bottom-five unit in receptions (56), receiving yards (675) and touchdowns (six) allowed to opposing tight ends.
Cook (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Cook missed New Orleans' last two contests, but he appears to have managed a full recovery during the team's bye. The veteran tight end stands to reclaim his starting role Sunday versus the Falcons.

Cook (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Unable to practice throughout the week, Cook will now miss a second straight game. Josh Hill played 68 percent of snaps on offense in last week's 36-25 win over Chicago, with Dan Arnold chipping in 24 percent and fullback Zach Line (36 percent) handling his largest share of the season.
