Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Cobb is a short-yardage slot receiver, so he'll depend on volume to return fantasy value. He looked better in Week 2 than he did in Week 1, but that was due to WIll Fuller's absence, and we're yet to see him be fantasy-relevant with both Cooks and Fuller on the field. Leave Cobb on your bench (or on waivers) until he earns a larger target share from Deshaun Watson. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We saw Cobb a lot more involved in the offense in Week 2, though it took a zero-target game from Will Fuller to get there. He caught 5-of-6 targets for 59 yards, though he did have the best matchup on the field. He actually does once again this week against Mike Hilton, though it's not a smash spot or anything. In his four years with the Steelers, Hilton has allowed a pedestrian 66.1 percent catch-rate (this is decent for a slot cornerback) and 10.4 yards per reception with a touchdown every 31 targets. The Steelers biggest weakness is over the middle of the field, but the only receivers who've truly capitalized on that saw seven-plus targets and had a big role in their offense (Tyler Boyd, Tyler Lockett, Christian Kirk, Julian Edelman, and Jarvis Landry). Those are the slot receivers who finished top-36 against the Steelers. If Fuller is inactive, there's a chance, but I don't think Cobb should be considered anything more than a WR5 in fantasy right now.
