Randall Cobb has started his 2016 season off rather slow.  He hasn't had a game over 60 receiving yards yet.  He also has yet to find himself in the back of the end zone.  Everyone is freaking out and doesn't know what to do with the Packers wide out.

Well, here is what you need to do!  If you have drafted Cobb with the hopes that he is going to be a useful WR 2, then you are most likely disappointed with his lack of production.    Cobb started last season off just as bad.  The only difference was that he was able to get into the end zone.  Owners didn't really notice his lack of receiving yards early because they were just looking at his point production.  Randall Cobb got out of his yardage slump last year by having back to back 100+ yard games.  Expect his break out week to be week 5.  

The Green Bay Packers face off against the New York Giants in week 5.  That means Aaron Rodgers is going up against a very weak secondary.  The Giants have yet to get one interception and have allowed 300+ passing yards per game.  Just imagine a great quarterback like Rodgers having a lot of time to drop back and throw the ball up.  This is going to be the week of Randall Cobb.  Expect him to not only find the end zone but to also rack up over 100 receiving yards.  No matter what, if you drafted Cobb than you need to keep playing him.  He is to good to not have in your lineup.
