Cook came down with a 20-yard reception late in the fourth quarter for his longest gain of the day. He caught three of the six passes thrown his way for 49 yards in a 23-13 defeat.
Cook has eight receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown over his last three games played. He'll try to bounce back in Week 14 against the Cardinals in Arizona.
Cook has re-emerged as solid Fantasy play as of late, scoring twice over his last three games. He caught four of the five passes thrown his way for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Bears.
Cook will face a San Francisco defense that has allowed only two touchdowns to tight ends over the previous seven games. Opposing tight ends have scored only 5.00 Fantasy points per game in CBSSports.com standard leagues. Consider him a low-end option for Week 13.
The 80 yards were the most for Cook since his Week 1, 141-yard performance. The touchdown was his second in three games, and his fourth on the season.
The Rams face the 49ers next Sunday. Cook had four catches for 45 yards when the teams first met, in Week 4.
Over their last five games, Cook has one game of nine points and four with four points or fewer. Kendricks has one game with nine points, one with six, and three of two or fewer. While Cook is the better bet in a PPR league, Kendricks actually isn't that far behind -- over their last five games played, Kendricks has seen 20 targets, while Cook has 23.
This all adds up to two risky tight end plays. Kendricks is more of a touchdown-dependent asset, while Cook is the player who frustrates you to no end -- you drop him and he has a 100-yard game; you then pick Cook back up and start him, and he has two catches for 21 yards in each of his next four. Then you drop him again and the process repeats itself.
Neither tight end is a suggested start in standard-sized Fantasy formats. But in a desperate situation, it might be wise to go with Cook and his potential over Kendricks and the hope for a touchdown.
