Jared Cook cooks up some fantasy production against the Bears

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams tight end was a welcomed top producer against the Bears in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams tight end Jared Cook caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the team's 42-21 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 12. Cook was targeted five times in the game.

Fantasy impact: Cook has now found the end zone in two of the last three weeks after not having scored since the opening game of the season prior to that.

Since he was so huge in Week 1, the fantasy community was sky-high on the idea that Cook was about to prove himself as an elite fantasy tight end. That simply hasn't materialized.

Part of the reason for that can be attributed to the Rams' instability at the quarterback position. Cook isn't going to make huge plays down the field with the likes of Kellen Clemens under center.

That said, he does maintain fantasy value in deeper leagues and there's definitely room for the second half to be different for all of the Rams' fantasy relevant players. The team has changed drastically since the start of the season at both the quarterback and running back position. Those changes can't help but trickle down to players like Cook.
