Week Six Analysis:
Randall Cobb has seen the most targets for Green Bay in their last three games, and last week he showcased his game-changing versatility with over 100 combo yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Cobb runs 94% of his routes from the slot and last week, Miami's mild-mannered slot receiver, Brandon Gibson, went for 74 yards against this week's opponent, the Ravens. As a whole, Dolphins wideouts went for over 200 total receiving yards, but the Packers pose a much more serious threat and are capable of more carnage behind Aaron Rodgers, who is passing for more than 330 yards per game.
Week Five Analysis:
The Lions rank fifth in pass coverage this season but they've allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw for 300-plus yards in back-to-back games. That streak could certainly stay alive with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on tap for this Sunday. Randall Cobb has been targeted 14 times in the red zone in three games this year, after getting just eight looks all of last year. Detroit is dinged at cornerback with starter Chris Houston and backup Rashean Mathis both questionable to play, and in two games against the Lions last season, Cobb totaled 16 catches, 176 yards, and a touchdown. Plus, he's now scored and/or gone over 100 yards in five of his last six home games.
Week Three Analysis:
The wealth was spread a little more thinly last week in Green Bay, but Randall Cobb still garnered double-digit targets and filled it up for fantasy owners against the feeble Redskins. The Cincinnati Bengals will be a much tougher test on their own turf, but as Aaron Rodgers' most-targeted receiver in a prolific pass attack, Randall should ride the pine for no one. He has gone over 100 receiving yards and/or scored a touchdown in six of his last seven road games. Cobb also tacked-on three more targets in the red zone last week and is now tied for the league-lead not only in looks inside the twenty, but the ten as well.
Week Two Analysis:
Washington was awful against the pass last season and didn't look any better on Monday night. They knew the ball would be going to DeSean Jackson yet he ripped them for seven catches, 104 yards, and a touchdown. Last week on the road against a superior 49er defense, Randall Cobb produced the exact same stat line, but four yards better. Cobb also led the Packers with 12 targets. And four of them were inside the red zone. That was the most red zone action for any receiver in Week 1 and a huge uptick from last year considering he had a season total of eight!
Week One Analysis:
When these two teams met at Lambeau last year in Week 1, Randall Cobb was all over the place. He hauled-in a season-high nine catches for 77 yards and took an electrifying 75-yard punt return to the house. In the playoff rematch, though, the Niners figured him out, holding him to a paltry 24 receiving yards. Still, there are several reasons for optimism. With Greg Jennings now adorned in enemy purple and Jordy Nelson clouded by knee concerns, Cobb could emerge as Aaron Rodger's clear-cut favorite. He possesses soft hands and the crazy ability to create space and be gone in an instant. Last year, Randall had the highest percentage of passes caught amongst all receivers, the fifth-most missed tackles, and the eighth-most yards after the catch. And in PPR leagues, he ranked sixth in points per opportunity and second in points per snap. 49ers safeties allowed 14 scores last season, the most in the NFL. And the loss of Dashon Goldson drops them a notch. They still have a very vaunted defense, but you should count on Cobb to contribute nicely.
