Fantasy Slant: Jared Cook to the Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders made their second big splash in free agency this week. Just a few days after adding Pro Bowl wide receiver and special teams performer Cordarrelle Patterson, the Raiders have signed tight end Jared Cook

Green Bay made Cook expendable when the team signed Martellus Bennett away from the New England Patriots. 

Cook, 29, had a solid season with the Packers in 2016, recording 30 receptions for 377 yards and a touchdown. 

He should be a bit more involved in Oakland's offense than what we saw with the Packers. After all, the Raiders' tight ends struggled doing anything of substance a season ago. Look for a solid increase from the 51 targets Cook saw in 2016. This should make him a TE2 option in 12-team leagues.
