|Buoyed by an 8-touchdown season, the athletically challenged Rodgers finished as a top-10 tight end. With the loss of Nelson, Rodgers became the go-to target in the red zone, but was a basic non-factor everywhere else, topping 60 yards only once (Week 13), thanks to the game winning Hail Mary versus Detroit. Green Bay made upgrading on Rodgers a priority, but wound up with annual fantasy tease Jared Cook as the contender. Cook has been sidelined all off-season with foot surgery, so he’s had little opportunity to immerse himself in the offense. These two will probably find a way to split 8-10 touchdowns, and about 800 yards. Cook is by far the better receiver, and is finally playing with a good quarterback, so if I had to take a flyer on a TE2, he would be my bet.

|Ian Rapoport on Twitter: "#Packers TE Jared Cook suffered a high-ankle sprain in the team's win, source said. It's pretty swollen & could cause him to miss time." (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It looks as though Richard Rodgers will be the lone healthy Green Bay tight end, even after the team's Week 4 bye. Rodgers is a low-end TE2 with some matchup-specific upside.
