Jared Cook and his Saints team face a solid and defensively sound Bears team. It’s a matchup that is pretty close. For the Saints can they score in Chicago’s house? How will Jared Cook fare fantasy wise?

Fantasy Football analysis: Saints TE Jared Cook

The veteran tight end, Cook has had a solid season for the Saints. The clear number one, he seems aet to have a nice work load Sunday as the receiver room for New Orleans has been decimated. Last time out, Cook caught three of four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown and should see an increased usage this time around. If Brees can get going early and get rid of the ball quick as he has, Cook has tremendous upside. His scoring the last two weeks has to be encouraging and with his size he will get some red zone looks. That bodes well for fantasy.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Cook.
