2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Nov-18-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/18): When Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL, Cobb was propelled into the ranks of the elite WR1s. Many had him as high as the WR5. He has been a massive disappointment since Week 3. His preseason shoulder injury has apparently caused him issues making separation. Since Week 3, he has only topped five receptions once, has one touchdown and has only surpassed 53 yards once. If not for one 53-yard touchdown reception, he's been pretty much useless since September.
Updated: 8/24 - As if his fantasy upside couldn't be much higher, Cobb is now elevated to a 1st round selection in your fantasy draft. Cobb should be a lock for 100 receptions this season and you can make a case for him to be drafted before names like Calvin Johnson and AJ Green.
There was a small window in March when Packers fans had to be concerned about Cobb possibly leaving town as a free agent. I'm glad he re-signed, and I expect him to have a long, successful career in Green Bay. Entering just his age-25 season, there is a very good chance Randall ends up as the best wide receiver in the Packers' illustrious history. Just like Nelson, Cobb set career highs in 2014 with 91 catches, 127 targets, 1,287 yards and 12 scores. His yards-per-catch average (14.1) also made a nice step forward. Over the first nine games of the year, Randall scored 10 times. He had five 100-yard performances and seven weeks in which he caught at least six passes. However, Cobb saw seven targets or fewer in 10 games. Randall will probably catch more passes than Nelson because he can work the short areas of the field close to the line of scrimmage. I consider him a 100-catch player with value at the goal line. His growth last year should lead to even more success this year. Pencil him in for 100 receptions, 1,400 yards and double-digit touchdowns. Nelson has the edge in big-play ability while Cobb is the better open-field runner. The teammates' Fantasy values are very close, but Cobb is being drafted seven picks later on average. If you can't get Nelson, Cobb is a great consolation prize.
