While both Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee are both better slot receivers than they are on the perimeter, the signing of Cobb indicated he'll be taking over in the slot. He's going to be starting on a team that just lost Deandre Hopkins, which creates a lot of uncertainty. The reason I'm not big on Cobb is due to the fact that Deshaun Watson hasn't checked down very much throughout his career.

As you move into the later parts of your draft, it's difficult to find players who are going to receive the amount of targets that Cobb will in Houston. Keke Coutee has seen significant targets when he's been healthy and the Texans brought in Cobb early on in free agency too. They clearly have a plan for him and Cobb still has plenty left in the tank after averaging over 15 YPR last season in Dallas. It's not the sexiest pick in the final round of your draft, but Cobb should produce for your fantasy roster this season.

Entering his 10th season, you'd be forgiven for dismissing Randall Cobb as a has-been. News Flash: He's still in his 20s! While it's been a long time since Cobb put together a really good fantasy season, he does have a good opportunity heading into a wide open Texans offence. Bill O'Brien clearly likes him as he's going to cost Houston at least $18 million over the next three years. That's not chump change! Cobb will have an important slot role and is an intriguing late round gamble, especially in PPR. After all, Deshaun Watson is a stud and he needs to throw the ball short sometimes!

Could be in a great spot for 100+ targets, especially if Cooks and/or Fuller miss time (which as we all know, is likely).
