Cook is the latest athletic tight end who will attempt to replicate Jimmy Graham’s fantasy goodness in New Orleans. And hopefully his time with Drew Brees will go a bit better than Coby Fleener’s.

Brees’ top fantasy football tight end has been a bit of a mixed bag over the years.

Drew Brees’ Tight End Fantasy Ranks (PPR)

  • 2009: Jeremy Shockey TE17
  • 2010: Shockey TE25
  • 2011: Jimmy Graham TE2
  • 2012: Graham TE1
  • 2013: Graham TE1
  • 2014: Graham TE2
  • 2015: Ben Watson TE7
  • 2016: Coby Fleener TE15
  • 2017: Fleener TE34
  • 2018: Watson TE21

Cook is probably capable of providing a lower-tier TE1 finish, but it’ll have to come on significantly less volume. He was one of 10 players with double-digit targets inside the 10-yard line last season, and his 68 catches were tied with Jalen Richard for the Raiders’ team lead. — Ian Hartitz
