Randall Cobb Week 1 Outlook - Texans at Chiefs

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Tue, Sep 8th 2020, 12:04pm EDT

There are many expecting Cobb to just continue the production he had last year while moving from Dak Prescott to Deshaun Watson. Unfortunately, Watson hasn't targeted his intermediate wide receivers nearly as much. Before Cobb, there was Cole Beasley with Prescott who racked up some big games. We haven't had many big slot performances with Watson, as he's continually buying time and looking down the field. Will that change now that DeAndre Hopkins is gone? The Chiefs did lose starting slot cornerback Kendall Fuller this offseason, though they likely allowed him to walk due to how well the combination of Tyrann Mathieu and Daniel Sorenson played during the playoff stretch. My guess is that Mathieu will be covering Cobb most of the day, though some things may depend on safety Juan Thornhill playing (recovering from a torn ACL). Mathieu allowed just 5.39 yards per target in coverage last season. Cobb is far from a can't-miss player, especially in this offense, so it's likely best to take the wait-and-see approach with him.
