2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Raiders tight end Jared Cook saw 86 targets in 2017 (tied for ninth-most), which he converted for a career-high 54 receptions, and that was with Michael Crabtree still on the roster. With serious questions at wide receiver heading into the season, Cook could very well end up second on the roster in targets in 2018. Raiders coach Jon Gruden raved at OTAs about Cook's speed and the team has been experimenting moving him around the field to create mismatches. Utilizing Cook's speed and athleticism could be a way to stretch defenses, which is an important part of what the Raiders will need to do to improve as an offense this season.

Tight end as a whole is very weak this season and there aren't many players at the position who figure to see 80-plus targets. Many of the tight ends who did see 80 targets in 2017 are not likely to repeat that number, including Jason Witten, who is now retired; Jimmy Graham, who is on a new team; Evan Engram, who has to deal with the return of Odell Beckham Jr and the addition of Saquon Barkley in the passing game; as well as both Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle who are now battling one another for targets in the same offense. If he stays healthy, Cook figures to improve on the 86 targets he saw this past season, which could see him finish in the top five at the position in that ever-important opportunity-based statistic.

On the downside, at 6'5" and 250-plus pounds, Cook has not proven to be the red zone threat that one might expect. He's scored just 19 touchdowns in his nine-year NFL career, including just three total touchdowns over his past three seasons. Cook can be very streaky and difficult to predict from a fantasy standpoint, but that does make him an ideal candidate for best-ball formats where you can take the highs and not worry so much about the lows.

His current ADP sees him going extremely late or even undrafted in many leagues, so there's not much opportunity cost here. He's probably worth a shot to roster in deep leagues or teams with questions at the position given his high floor.
