Boom

Even with ace QB Aaron Rodgers missing significant time last season, Cobb managed to catch 66 balls. Since 2012, Cobb has averaged five receptions a game for the Packers, and hes had no fewer than 60 receptions in any of the last four seasons. Rodgers remains one of the best quarterbacks in the league, if not the best, and Cobb should be a prominent Rodgers target this season, particularly after the offseason release of Jordy Nelson.

Bust

In the three years since his monster 2014 season, in which he had 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, finishing sixth among wide receivers in fantasy scoring, Cobbs best finish in WR fantasy scoring has been 28th, and hes twice finished out of the top 40. Over his first four NFL seasons, Cobb averaged 13.4 yards per catch. Over his last three seasons, hes averaged just 10.2 yards per catch, bottoming out at a career-low 9.9 yards per catch last season.

Bottom Line

Cobb has been trending downward the last three years, but he still has a steady role in a prolific passing attack. Hes more valuable in PPR leagues than standard-scoring leagues.
