WR - HOU
Week 3 Outlook
Randall Cobb caught four of five targets for 95 yards and a touchdown on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Steelers by a 28-21 score in Week 3 action.
Cobb looks to have picked up an increased role in the offense and has seen 11 targets over the last two weeks. The veteran receiver is competing with Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller for passes which hurts his fantasy value and is only worth owning in 12-14 team leagues and deeper.
Randall Cobb caught 5-of-6 targets for 59 yards in Houston's Week 2 loss to the Ravens by a 33-16 score.
Cobbs got to see some more time on the field in Week 2 with Will Fuller dealing with a hamstring issue. Over two games now the veteran receiver has seven catches for 82 yards. If Fuller misses the game in Week 3 then Cobb is worth grabbing in deeper fantasy leagues.
Randall Cobb brought in two of three targets for 23 yards in the Texans' 34-20 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday.
Cobb did not get targeted until the meaningless fourth quarter with the Texans playing in garbage time after falling behind the Chiefs. The veteran receiver does not look like a big part of the offense and should only be owned in deeper fantasy formats.
The Texans have agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with Randall Cobb, which contains $18.75 million guaranteed.
Cobb is hardly a replacement for the departed DeAndre Hopkins, but there are certainly worse situations he could have found himself in. With Will Fuller's injury history, there is room for another wide receiver to establish himself alongside Kenny Stills in the Texans offense, particularly in the slot. Cobb hasn't topped 828 yards receiving or four touchdowns since 2015, so he's still not exactly a fantasy target. But with the money the Texans will be paying him, he'll likely be worth a late-round dart throw.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that he hopes to have both Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb back with the team in 2020.
Cobb had his best season since 2015 last year with the Cowboys. Still, given the potential presence of Cooper and Michael Gallup, he's more of a fringe fantasy player in deep PPR leagues. He's currently the WR67 in our early expert consensus.
