2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


I have to say Cobb was one of the most frustrating wide receivers to own in 2015. His season started off well after three games (20 catches for 245 yards and four TDs on 28 targets including two double-digit target games. The loss Nelson pointed to more chances, but Randall just could break free in the secondary. Over his 13 games, Cobb had fewer than 60 yards receiving in 11 games with only three double-digit target games. Realistically, Randall only had one game of value over his last 13 games (4/99/10. In the end, he has almost the same opportunity as 2014 (129 targets in 2015 and 127 in 2014), but his catch rate (61.2) and yards per catch (10.5) were much weaker. His success in 2014 (91/1297/12) still shines brightly, but Cobb proved last year that he wasn't worthy of being a WR1 in the NFL. With Nelson back in the lineup, he should see weaker coverage plus he has to be motivated to right the ship. I'd prefer him as WR3 than a WR2 in PPR leagues. Let's middle the last two years, which is about 85 catches for 1000+ yards and nine TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
3.04 Doug Moore - Randall Cobb is a strong candidate to bounce back. In 2014 (when Nelson last played), Cobb had a terrific season with 91 receptions, 1287 yards and 12 touchdowns. It?s not out of the question to see Cobb finish with 80 receptions, 1150 yards and eight touchdowns. It would be a big improvement over 79 receptions, 829 yards and six touchdowns. This could be a steal in the third round.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
3.09 Gridiron Experts - Jody Smith - The return of Jordy Nelson will help Cobb return to WR1/2 status. The last full season (2014) these two were healthy together, Cobb was the WR8, and if you take Cobb's 2013 numbers and project them out to a 16-game pace, his 93/1210/13 line would have also been WR8. 
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
2.12 Rotocurve - Michael Rathburn - Tough season for Cobb last year. He was not 100% and missed Jordy Nelson on the other side. The Packers schedule is one of the easiest in the league, and I think they will get back to the old Packers aerial attack that we all know and love.
