There have been a litany of disasters at tight end in fantasy football this season. Big names like Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham haven't been able to do much or find the end zone, and the list of disappointments goes on and on.


You really don't want to have to stream a tight end week after week, as you'd rather have a stud tight end to lean on. After a hot start by Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook, unfortunately, that's exactly what you might have to do if you own him in fantasy. Cook has been fantastic at home, but absolutely terrible on the road. 

During his four games at home, Cook has 23 catches for 374 yards and three touchdowns. On the road, he's played four games and tallied 15 catches for 120 yards, but has yet to find the end zone. In a full PPR league, that's the difference between averaging 19.6 points per game to 6.75. 


His two-target performance on Thursday night against a terrible 49ers defense, that didn't even feature Reuben Foster, just goes to show how bad he is away from home. 

It's hard trusting a fantasy weapon who can't score on the road, but there's good news for Cook owners. From Weeks 13 to 16, he'll only be away from Oakland once.
