Cobb is pretty much the last man standing at this point, with both Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams out for the Packers' Week 17 game against Detroit. It's a decent matchup overall, as the Lions aren't particularly tough on opposing wide receivers, and Cobb is likely to see heavy targets in the game. That keeps him relevant in most leagues, though far from a reliable starter.

Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson are out, as is Aaron Jones. Jamaal Williams and Cobb should be busy.

Now that we know Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams are out for Week 17, Cobb is the only starting-caliber wide receiver who'll be on the field for the Packers against the Lions. He also plays the slot, which means he'll escape the coverage of Darius Slay the majority of the time. Knowing everything we do, Cobb should be locked into six-plus targets in a plus-matchup, making him a WR3.
