The staff members at Footballguys are full of opinions. In a Faceoff, we allow two members to voice their opinions on a specific player. One picked the high side, and the other took the low side.
High Side: Justin Howe
Randall Cobb’s death warrant has been all but signed by the drafting community. After a dynamic 2012-15 stretch, he limped through last season with a nagging hamstring injury and posted a very ho-hum PPR WR53 season. Now, he appears to be definitively passed on the totem pole by Davante Adams – and perhaps Martellus Bennett, too. But I don’t think he’s done producing for us yet – at the very least, he’s still a much stronger asset than WR40. After all, if we extrapolate that 2012-15 run to 16 games, we get a very solid line of 85 receptions, 1,058 yards, and 9.1 touchdowns. Add in Cobb’s occasional rushing production, and that line brings home easy WR1 production. And his path back to those heights might not be as arduous as you think.
