Randall Cobb, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Cobb had six receptions for 108 yards with fantastic touchdown catch against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10. After a back injury cost him a game and seemed to limit him otherwise, he has 12 catches on 16 targets over two games since Dallas’ bye.
A good matchup is coming in Week 11, as the Detroit Lions entered Week 10 in the bottom half of the league against wide receivers (PPR scoring) with a touchdown allowed the position in five straight games.
Week 12-14 look downright stifling, as the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears went into Week 10 (in order) as the top three fantasy defenses against wide receivers (Yahoo! PPR scoring). With the Los Angeles Rams on the slate in Week 15, Week 16 (Philadelphia Eagles) and Week 17 (Washington Redskins) are the next particularly good matchups coming for the Cowboys’ wide receivers.
But Dak Prescott seems likely to have to throw plenty as Ezekiel Elliott doesn’t look quite the same, with enough going around lately to sustain three fantasy viable wide receivers. So even with that set of tough matchups, Cobb is a solid add in 12-team leagues.
