Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he wants to get Randall Cobb more touches.
Cobb averaged fewer catches per game last season than in any since his rookie year and 1.1 fewer catches than his breakout in 2014. "It’s important to make sure you create opportunities for all these guys," McCarthy said. "And how can you get Randall the ball a couple more times a game? Those are the things I think about at night." Health played some role in Cobb's disappointing 2016, but volume was a bigger concern with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams emerging as the top two threats in the passing game. With Martellus Bennett also in the fold this year, finding targets for Cobb will not get any easier. He is a prime candidate to be overvalued this summer. Jun 8 - 12:31 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes 2017 could be a "make or break" season for Randall Cobb.

Cobb had a monster 2014 campaign, catching 91 balls for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, but his numbers have dipped in consecutive years since signing a four-year, $40 million pact. Including the playoffs, Cobb had just two 100-yard games in 2016 and was passed on the totem pole by Davante Adams behind Jordy Nelson. Due an $8.6 million salary, there are whispers Cobb may be asked to take a pay cut. Cobb turns 27 in August and has become a low-end WR3 in fantasy.
Feb 10 - 9:52 AM

Randall Cobb caught 6-of-9 targets for 82 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Cobb was the Packers’ No. 3 receiver this season, watching his down 2015 become a trend. Frequently banged up, Cobb was soundly out-produced by Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, and struggled to differentiate himself from even Geronimo Allison down the stretch. The one-time electric playmaker has busted extremely few big plays over the past two years, averaging 10.4 yards per catch. Amazingly still only 26, Cobb’s career is far from forked, but it’s fair to declare his 2014 an outlier. Cobb should be regarded as a lower-end WR3 in Dynasty leagues.
Jan 22 - 6:39 PM

Randall Cobb pulled in seven-of-eight targets for 62 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Cobb was the hero in last week’s win over the Giants but took on more of a supporting role Sunday as the Packers survived a nail-biter in Dallas. He was still a big part of the Packers’ passing game but was out-targeted by both Jared Cook and Davante Adams. Cobb has a favorable matchup against the Falcons’ secondary next week but could take a backseat to Jordy Nelson, who is tentatively expected to return after missing Sunday’s game with broken ribs.
Jan 15 - 9:33 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is practicing fully for the Divisional Round.

Cobb looked fully healthy after blowing up for three touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win. He's in line for increased targets with Jordy Nelson's status in doubt.
Jan 11 - 6:45 PM

Randall Cobb caught 5-of-7 targets for 116 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

As Giants slot CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) bowed out early, Aaron Rodgers attacked New York with his slot receiver. Cobb got the start over Geronimo Allison and came through with one of the most incredible plays of the season, securing a 42-yard Hail Mary on the final play of the first half. Cobb’s second score all but iced the game in the third quarter, dusting fill-in slot CB Trevin Wade off the line of scrimmage for a 30-yard strike. Finally, Cobb put the Giants out of their misery with a 16-yard touchdown on a laser from Rodgers in the fourth frame. Cobb's monster game came almost out of thin air. His role lessened in the second half of the season due to ankle and hamstring injuries, and Cobb didn't play in Week 16 or 17. He went catch-less in his last appearance (Week 15).
Jan 8 - 8:22 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is active for the Packers' Wild Card game against the Giants.

Cobb missed the final two games of the season, but will be out there in the slot. He's not an overly appealing DFS option. Geronimo Allison is the No. 4 receiver. Inactive for the Packers are QB Joe Callahan, WR Trevor Davis, CB Quinten Rollins, RB James Starks, OT Kyle Murphy, LB Jayrone Elliott and DT Christian Ringo. Daily Slant: Cobb will have a very tough matchup against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who has a 90.9 Pro Football Focus grade this season. It won’t get much easier for Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, who will have to deal with Janoris Jenkins (88.1) and Eli Apple (71.1). The Giants biggest weakness may be against tight ends, Football Outsiders ranks them 26th in DVOA against the position. If New York's corners can shut down the receivers, Aaron Rodgers may need to rely on Jared Cook quite a bit today. Cook averaged seven targets and 59.3 yards across his last three games.
Jan 8 - 3:20 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Giants.

Cobb was limited at practice this week and seems to be trending in the right direction. If healthy, Cobb will occupy his usual role as Green Bay's slot receiver. Geronimo Allison has done a nice job in his place, corralling eight catches for 157 yards over the last two weeks.
Jan 6 - 3:24 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Randall Cobb (ankle) "had a good day's work" Wednesday and will practice again on Thursday.

It felt like the Packers were trying to see where Cobb was on Wednesday, so the fact McCarthy came away pleased is a good sign for his availability this weekend. Geronimo Allison has been shockingly effective the last two weeks, but the Packers would certainly love to have back a healthy Cobb.
Jan 5 - 11:53 AM

Randall Cobb (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

It sounds like it's more of a day to see where Cobb is at with his ankle. He's missed the past two games, but Green Bay is "hopeful" Cobb will play Sunday against the Giants. Geronimo Allison has filled in well in Cobb's absence.
Jan 4 - 2:57 PM

The Packers are "hopeful" about Randall Cobb's (ankle) status for the Wild Card round.

Cobb sat out the final two games of the regular season. Truth be told, Cobb has not been missed much as Geronimo Allison steps up in his absence, but the Pack will surely want all hands on deck against the Giants.
Jan 2 - 4:01 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is inactive for Week 17 against the Lions.

Cobb was on the doubtful side after not practicing all week, but came down to a game-time decision. He wouldn't have played more than a few snaps if active. Jordy Nelson will see time in the slot with Cobb out. The rest of the Packers inactives are QB Joe Callahan, RB James Starks, CB Josh Hawkins, OT Kyle Murphy, OL JC Tretter, ND LB Jayrone Elliott.
Jan 1 - 7:02 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers aren't counting on Randall Cobb (ankle) for much even if he play against the Lions in Week 17.

Cobb is considered a game-time decision but is much closer to doubtful than probable after missing practice all week. Rapsheet said his ankle "needs another week," but in a must-win game against Detroit, he might tough it out for a few snaps. Jordy Nelson could see more action in the slot if Cobb is unable to play.
Jan 1 - 9:16 AM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is questionable for Week 17 against the Lions.

Cobb didn't practice all week but is hoping to play at least some in Sunday night's must-win game against the Lions. He'll be a game-time decision. Jordy Nelson could see more work in the slot if Cobb can't go.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 04:12:00 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) has yet to rule himself out for Week 17.

Cobb sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but he said it's an effort to be fresher than he was last week. Cobb practiced before ultimately sitting out against the Vikings. If Cobb does play, he'll likely be on a snap count behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.
