From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): Cobb actually took a step back in fantasy value in Week 2 despite a quick passing game that should have suited him well. He's a boom/bust WR3/Flex right now.

Week 3: at Washington Redskins

All WR vs WAS

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers suited up in Week 2, brace and all, after a bone bruise had him hobbling to close out their Week 1 victory. While Week 2 resulted in a tie, Rodgers played quite well against one of the top defenses in the league. His mobility was and still will be limited for a few weeks, but Rodgers still managed to complete over 70 percent of his passes for 281 yards and a touchdown. Despite taking four sacks, his offensive line played very well and offered Rodgers a solid pocket with plenty of time for most of the game. Davante Adams again led the team in targets with 12, hauling in eight of them for 64 yards and a touchdown despite combatting shadow coverage from Xavier Rhodes. Adams now has a touchdown in back to back outings with at least two red zone looks in each game. Randall Cobb fell back to earth with only 30 yards on four receptions after averaging nearly 16 yards per reception for 142 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. Jimmy Graham had a much-needed bounce-back from a disappointing Week 1 as he led the Packers receiving corps with 95 yards. Graham was much more involved last week and actually could have had a huge day if not for a touchdown called back due to a questionable penalty. The Redskins secondary has been quite effective in their first two games, holding opposing passing offenses to the fewest passing yards per game (161) and limiting opposing wide receivers to just 23.5 fantasy points per game in PPR scoring formats (fourth-fewest). Part of this success, of course, came against a dysfunctional Cardinals offense while the rest came last week against a Colts offense that can barely keep Andrew Luck upright for long enough to make a pass downfield. This week will offer a significant test to prove whether the Redskins secondary is for real. They undoubtedly have the talent with known commodity Josh Norman as their primary cornerback and talented safety D.J., Swearinger at strong safety. Swearinger, in particular, has made some solid plays this season, while it is actually Quinton Dunbar opposite from Norman who has stood out in the first two games of the season. With Norman playing exclusively on the left side, he may miss most snaps against Davante Adams--meaning Geronimo Allison gets the pleasure of lining up opposite Norman. Despite Dunbar's early-season success, Adams is too talented to be overwhelmed by him in this matchup. Randall Cobb should have a more favorable matchup here against Fabian Moreau out of the slot.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)

Randall Cobb caught four passes for 30 yards on six targets against the Vikings on Sunday. As opposed to week one where he was the primary target for Rodgers, Cobb had a very quiet day. He caught passes of 14 yards, three yards, four yards and nine yards. Cobb was targeted deep down the field on two of his other targets but failed to come up with the catches, including one that went for an interception that was luckily overturned due to other off-setting penalties. In addition, Cobb also muffed a punt that he was able to recover before the Vikings were right there on top of him. All in all, not a banner day for Cobb.

2018 Week 1 vs CHI (10 / 9 / 142 / 1 rec)

Randall Cobb caught nine passes for 142 yards and the game winning touchdown against the Bears on Sunday night. Cobb caught nine of 11 targets and did most of his work in the short passing game, although he did have a 29 yard catch prior to his 75 yard touchdown. Cobb only has one 1,000 yard season on his resume, in 2014, but it seems that fantasy managers have been talking about him breaking out every year since then. With Jordy Nelson now in Oakland, Cobb looks like he is poised for another big season. Cobb's 75 yard game winning touchdown came deep in the 4th quarter with the Packers down six points. Cobb ran a shallow in-route, and had the presence of mind to sit his route down in the middle of the field as Aaron Rodgers worked to escape pressure in the pocket. Rodgers hit Cobb 12 yards down the field, and Cobb turned around to find no Chicago defender within ten yards of him. Cobb took off up the middle of the field before breaking outside to the right sideline. He then cut it back to the middle of the field at the Bears 10 yard line to escape a Chicago defender and waltzed into the end zone without so much as a tap by a Bears defender until a last gasp effort at the one yard line. The play was a major blunder for the Bears, but Cobb deserves the credit for keeping himself in the play and allowing Rodgers to find him open in the middle of the field.
