Jared Cook caught his first target of the preseason on Saturday night for a big gain. As a result, Rams fans and fantasy football owners have reason to be excited.
In the second quarter, Sam Bradford found his tight end over the middle on a short crossing route that Cook turned into a 37-yard catch and run. It's a play that highlighted the type of athleticism and playmaking ability that has the fantasy world buzzing about Cook.
Fantasy Spin: Cook may struggle to see the chain-moving, shorter completions that other tight ends around the league benefit from with Tavon Austin and Chris Givens on the offense. However, he has ability to create yards after the catch and could still put up numbers despite a diminished number of targets. It's also worth mentioning that with new weapons in the passing attack, the Rams are still establishing an identity, and Cook could establish himself as a cornerstone and put up top 10 numbers at his position.
