New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook has scored in two consecutive games and faces a Kansas City Chiefs team that has been lit up recently by the position. He also gets back his starting quarterback with Drew Brees expected to start.

Fantasy Football analysis: Saints TE Jared Cook

Cook has been a nice play the past two weeks, scoring 11.80 and 12.70 points. He’s been one of six tight ends to score more than 11.50 in the last two weeks as well, as his limited targets have been turned into touchdowns. Cook has scored five of his six total touchdowns this season in games in which he’s been targeted at least four times.

Kansas City is the 25th-ranked defense against opposing tight ends in fantasy this season and has been exposed the past three weeks, especially last. In Week 14’s win against Miami, they allowed Mike Gesicki to score twice, tallying 65 yards on five receptions for 23.50 fantasy points. In the last three weeks, they’ve allowed starting tight ends to average 16.60 points per-game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Jared Cook.
