|Cook to be key weapon for Rams -- Mon Jul 1 3:50 pm --|
STL plan includes some plays in backfield
|Rams HC Jeff Fisher was hesitant to use Jared Cook in his early days, as Cook struggled at times in learning the passing game and with his blocking. But Fisher sounded as if he has much more confidence in Cook now that he’s played four years.
“He’s going to play all over the place,” Fisher said. “We’ve even got him in the backfield, so we’ve got some good things for him.”
Fisher’s hope is that Cook will prove to be an important weapon for quarterback Sam Bradford and the Rams, who ranked 23rd in the league in offense and 25th in points last year. (Nashville Tennessean)|
FF Today's Take: Cook's hype train is starting to build some buzz, but it is for good reason. Utilized poorly in Tennessee, Cook is a highly-athletic tight end that will make plays downfield, making him more of a big-play threat than a possession receiver. Although he figures to have more value to non-PPR owners, expect career highs across the board for Cook, who should not struggle to be a TE1 in 2013.
