Dan Harris

Watkins really enjoyed Robert Woods' absence, and he's now scored in five of his last six games. But Woods should return this weekend against the Seahawks, which puts a damper on Watkins' outlook. The Seahawks' passing defense hasn't been quite as good without Richard Sherman, but it's still been decent, and without guaranteed targets, Watkins returns to being more of a high-end WR4 this weekend.Cobb's production waned a bit with Brett Hundley, but he wasn't doing all that much with Aaron Rodgers anyway. Cobb becomes somewhat more attractive with Rodgers' return this week, but he's still not a great play against the Panthers. It's true that Carolina has struggled against the pass, especially lately, but they're decent against slot receivers, as Captain Munnerlyn has been passable. Cobb is just a WR4 here.

 We have three Packers wide receivers to consider for fantasy again, though Cobb is the least attractive. Even with Rodgers through the first five games, Cobb failed to finish better than the WR18 in any given week. Still, he did finish as a top-36 option in three of the games, so he was usable. The Panthers have Captain Munnerlyn running out of the slot, who might be playing the best out of their trio, though that's not sayin much. He's still allowed a 79 percent catch rate in coverage, so if the gameplan is to go to Cobb, he can post solid numbers, especially in PPR formats. There is risk involved, but Cobb has the looks of an upside WR4 and one that I'd take a few shots on in tournaments.
