Tallies 29 yards in win
Cook caught three of four targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.
Cook was limited to his fourth straight game with under 30 receiving yards and has managed only three above that threshold all season. The Chargers have relied on Austin Ekeler and other options to cover goal-line opportunities instead of forcing the ball to Cook which has hampered his fantasy value significantly. Drops have also been an issue for Cook all season (61 percent catch rate), and as a result, the younger backup Donald Parham has seen additional usage. With a low receiving floor, and a decreasing share of red-zone targets, Cook remains a touchdown-dependent, low-upside option at tight end.
