2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Los Angeles has long been a place to find fantasy production at the tight end position and the newly acquired Jared Cook could be the newest player to finish as a TE1. Cook joined the team this offseason when the Chargers moved on from Hunter Henry, a consistent yet unspectacular pass catcher who failed to produce a TE1 fantasy season in 2020 despite the Chargers' lack of other pass catching weapons. Henry saw a career high with 93 targets on the year, but he caught just 64.5 percent of them, a career low, and his yards per reception also fell to just 10.2 which was also a career low.

Cook, who spent 2019 and 2020 in New Orleans, saw his numbers tumble this past season as he suffered through some erratic quarterback play, particularly in the weeks when his Saints were without future Hall of Famer Drew Brees. Even Brees himself seemed to be missing something last year, so it's not particularly surprising that Cook caught just 37 passes. Still, Cook was able to finish just barely inside TE1 range for fantasy as his 13.6 yards per reception was third-best among all tight ends and he also added an impressive seven touchdowns, bringing his total to 16 over the two years he spent with the Saints.

Cook may not be quite as consistent of a short-to-intermediate pass catcher as Henry has been, but he brings the field stretching ability that few tight ends can replicate. He's a big play tight end in an offense with really only one proven, consistent down-field pass catcher on the roster. He'll have to fend off fellow big play specialists like Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton to some extent, but Cook could be in line to finish third on the team in targets, behind Allen and Austin Ekeler. With the Chargers likely to be one of the most pass-heavy teams in the league, look for Cook to have a pretty decent chance of pushing to be a low-end TE1 in 2021.
