Fantasy Football: 2 New Orleans Saints sleepers for week 11
Jared Cook, tight end
Jared Cook has been bothered by an injury for the majority of this year. After missing weeks 7, 8, and 9, Cook came back in week 10 and scored 13.40 points on six receptions for 74 yards.
He ended up scoring the eighth-most points among tight ends last week. Fantasy-wise, Cook has been a massive letdown this season and he’s been used little in the offense that’s been primarily led by Teddy Bridgewater.
Set to matchup up against the Tampa Bay defense, Cook should prove to be electric. The Buccaneers give up the second-most points to tight ends this season among the entire NFL.
Brees should be back to normal and hopefully, Sean Payton runs the ball a little more opening up the passing lanes. With Michael Thomas receiving most of the targets and no other wide receiver in the picture, Cook will surely be No. 2 on the Saints roster in targets.
Expect Jared Cook to see about ten targets again and catch six or more balls for over 80 yards and a touchdown this week against the Buccaneers. Estimation of fantasy points: 20.20.
