Whether or not you made some money this past week with your involvement in daily fantasy football formats; the beauty of it is that this is a new week, and you have a clean slate.
While Green Bay’s offense has been up and down throughout the season, with more downs than ups as of late, it remains a fantasy goldmine behind their high volume passing attack. With the running game almost non-existent for the Packers, you know they’ll continue to push the ball downfield via the air.
Of the three main cogs in Green Bay’s WR corps, Randall Cobb comes at the cheapest price at DraftKings in week 11 at only $5,900. After dealing with a hamstring injury the past couple weeks, Cobb should be at full health this Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Since dealing with the nagging hamstring injury, Cobb has been contained pretty well by opposing defenses, but he’s due to turn it around this week.
From weeks 5-7, Cobb put together a tremendous stretch of 27 catches, 256 receiving yards with 2 scores – averaging over 12 fantasy points during that span. Two of those three matchups came against NFC East opponents – he’s up against another this week.
Cobb is a big play threat, and in a game that has all the makings of a shootout, he should cash in this week. With a guy like Josh Norman patrolling the outside, working out of the slot will benefit Cobb as Jordy Nelson should be kept in check most of the game. Working out of the slot, Cobb will see a lot of targets.
Even though he hasn’t lit up the stat sheet in recent weeks, a guy like Cobb is too good to keep silent for too long. His prominent role on the offense remains. Value wise, Cobb’s $5,900 price tag is well worth the price as he comes up cheaper than a guy like Steve Smith.
