Keep tweeting at me, folks! I'll answer.
How legit is Cobb ROS?
Randall Cobb is the No. 1 wide receiver in terms of point-per-reception fantasy points (79.0) over the last month. His five touchdowns in his last three games have spiked his value, but he hasn't been utilized fewer than seven times in any of his last four contests. In the Green Bay Packers' offense, that's all you need to sustain WR3 value for most leagues, especially when you've caught a whopping 76.3 percent of your targets.
This makes Cobb Green Bay's best running back, too. Get the ball in his hands, and he goes. Targets won't be a problem; he'll continue serving as an explosive extension of this ground game.
He's Percy Harvin in a cheddar hat.
The only problem I see with his schedule following their Week 10 bye is the Chicago Bears clash in Week 15; they've at least contained this aerial game in recent seasons. Last time Green Bay faced the Bears (Week 2), Cobb didn't have a big role yet, so a comparison in output wouldn't be appropriate.
Still, the rest of that schedule is tasty, and he should aid your postseason push.
Don't worry about the statistically daunting Minnesota Vikings matchup; the numbers are a tad skewed. They've faced John Skelton. Running slingers Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson don't have amazing receivers and got the better of the Norse in their own styles. Josh Freeman and Wilson each threw for three scores, and RGIII totaled a trio, as well (two rushing). Green Bay's versatility will have a similarly detrimental effect on Minny.
With this in mind, expect Cobb to hover around top-20 PPR wideout numbers, with the upside for more.
I'll throw in some quickie Week 10 predictions:
