Cook paced the Raiders in receptions, receiving yards and targets, putting together his second consecutive 100-yard effort. The 10-year pro continues to be a favorite target of Derek Carr all over the field, and the only blemish on his performance Sunday was that he saw his three-game touchdown streak come to an end. Cook will look to continue his stellar late-season production versus the Bengals in Week 15.
Cook caught seven of eight targets, collecting 100 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 40-33 loss to Oakland.
With another stellar showing Sunday, the 10-year veteran eclipsed 100 receiving yards for the third time this season but for just the first time in his past eight outings (averaged 34.1 YPG between Weeks 5 and 12). Cook has proven to be a lethal red-zone threat of late as well, with a touchdown reception in three straight appearances, as well as four scores over the past six games. Week 14 brings a matchup against a Steelers defense that's been below-average at defending tight ends this year, allowing 705 receiving yards and 63 receptions to the position entering Sunday Night Football (midrange in both categories).
Cook caught two of five targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.
Derek Carr threw way behind Cook on a pass up the sideline late in the third quarter. It was fine: The athletic tight end stuck out his paw, palmed the pass and hauled it in for a 16-yard touchdown, putting the game to within a score. The Raiders have mostly endured an ugly season, particularly as of late, but Cook is as valuable of any of the team's targets. The Raiders have just six passing touchdowns over the past five weeks, Cook has three of them. Expect him to be counted on next Sunday against a Chiefs team that forces opponents to play catch-up.
Cook corralled three of six targets, putting up 31 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-21 win against Arizona.
The veteran tight end clinched his second receiving score over Oakland's past four games -- and his fourth touchdown of the season -- with a 23-yard catch from Derek Carr on Oakland's third play from scrimmage. Cook has cooled off after a roaring first quarter to the regular season (370 yards and two touchdowns through Week 4), averaging 3.2 catches and fewer than 35 yards per game in six outings since. Week 12 brings a matchup against a Ravens defense that's been exposed in allowing 54 catches and 638 receiving yards to tight ends this season (among NFL's bottom eight teams in both categories).
Cook caught four of nine targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.
Cook has seen his production drop off immensely after what was a torrid start to the season by his standards. He entered the week with three games of 20 yards or fewer in his last four and seemed headed towards a similar fate in this one when he saw just two targets and recorded no catches in the first half. After hauling in four of his seven second-half targets to salvage his day, perhaps the Raiders will look to the 31-year-old more frequently starting Week 11 at Arizona.
