Randall Cobb caught three passes for 34 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.
Cobb reeled in all three of his targets and capped off the Packers' opening drive with a three-yard touchdown catch. He was wide open running across the back of the end zone. Reports haven't been glowing on Cobb in practice, but he looked like the same old Cobb on Saturday. He's comfortably on the back end of the WR1 map in both standard and PPR scoring formats.

Randall Cobb has "looked rather common" at Packers camp so far.

It's only been 10 practices, but ace reporter Bob McGinn says Cobb has made "almost no eye-catching plays." That's in stark comparison to newly minted Jordy Nelson, who has shown "superlative" play daily. Still, we're not panicking over two weeks of camp when Cobb is locked in as an every-down slot receiver, is in a contract year and has gained the trust of Aaron Rodgers in regular season battles. Over the last two seasons, Cobb is averaging 5.2 catches for 66.0 yards and 0.57 touchdowns on 7.1 targets per game.
Aug 7 - 8:38 AM

Vic Ketchman of the Packers' official website believes Randall Cobb could lead the league in receptions this season.

Pierre Garcon led the league with his 113 grabs last season, and five players had 100-plus catches. Cobb's career-high to this point is 80 catches in 2012. Cobb reeled in 25 passes on 34 targets in his first four games before breaking his leg last season, which extrapolates to 100 catches on 136 targets across a 16-game schedule. 13 receivers saw more than 136 targets in 2013. Cobb is certainly capable of leading the league in grabs, as he's going to be used even more with James Jones out of the picture. Cobb is a lower-end WR1.

Randall Cobb sidestepped questions about his contract after Tuesday's OTAs session.

Cobb is going into the final year of his rookie contract. "I’m not a businessman, so I don’t really know that side of that, that’s what I have an agent for," Cobb said. "That’s for the Packers to decide and to figure out." Cobb's injury history could work one of two ways in talks. Either he decides to bet on himself and play out his deal, or makes the safe decision and re-ups before Week 1.
Jun 3 - 5:09 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes "it would be a surprise" if the team chose not to sign at least one of Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson to an extension before the season.

Both Cobb and Nelson are out of contract next March. Demovsky sees Cobb as a "must re-sign" because of his youth, but believes it is not as cut and dry with Nelson, who will be 29 when this season begins. Both are exceptional wideouts. It would be in the Packers' best interest to lock each up with a long-term deal.
May 24 - 12:02 PM

The Packers want to take Randall Cobb out of the return job.

It's excellent news for Cobb's fantasy prospects. His attention will be fully devoted to the passing game, where the slot man is a very legit threat for 100 catches. He also won't be risking injury during high-impact returns. Cobb has been one of the game's best return men over the last three season, averaging 26.2 yards per kickoff return and 10.2 per punt.
Mar 19 - 12:42 PM

Randall Cobb said the Packers haven't discussed a contract extension with him yet.

Just like Jordy Nelson, Cobb is entering the final year of his deal. But both situations will likely be placed on the back burner as the Packers turn their attention to the draft and free agency. An extension for Cobb closer to training camp would make sense as he'd absolutely break the bank if he ever hit the open market. Cobb is just 23 years old and already on his way to establishing himself as one of the best slot receivers in the league. He was on pace for a 82/1154/11 line before breaking his leg in Week 9.
Feb 19 - 8:54 AM

Packers WRs coach Edgar Bennett expects Randall Cobb to see more time outside in 2014.

According to Pro Football Focus, 94.7 percent of Cobb's 2013 routes were run out of the slot. "(Cobb is a) tough-minded individual, mentally as well as physically, I think he can go outside," Bennett said. "But obviously, he’s a difference-maker in slot. Wherever you put him, he can be a difference. He can continue to be an impact player." Wherever Cobb is running in 2014, he'll be a WR2 with WR1 upside.
Jan 9 - 10:12 PM

Randall Cobb said he wants to focus on improving his tackle-breaking ability this offseason.

Cobb is hungry, just 23 years old and entering a contract year in 2014. "I've got to get better at breaking tackles," he said. "If I want to be a great player -- and not just a good player -- I have to do more. I have to be more. I'm going to take that upon myself this offseason." In the four games prior to his broken leg this season, Cobb posted 25 catches for 325 yards with two touchdowns. Projected over a full season, that's 100 catches, 1,300 yards and eight scores.
Jan 6 - 10:14 AM

Randall Cobb's two receptions went for 51 yards in the Packers' Wild Card loss to San Francisco.

The Packers used Cobb on returns, but he was mixed in sparingly on offense as Green Bay's primary three-wide package had Jarrett Boykin and James Jones lined up outside with Jordy Nelson at slot receiver. Still just two games removed from returning from a broken leg, Cobb was ostensibly deemed not ready for full-time duties by club Dr. Pat McKenzie. Cobb still made his presence felt on a broken fourth-down play where Aaron Rodgers busted out of a sack and found Cobb down the right sideline for 26. Cobb gained 25 more yards on a fourth-quarter catch down the left side, beating 49ers FS Eric Reid. Only 23 years old, Cobb has a chance to be a value pick in 2014 fantasy drafts after an injury-decimated 2013 campaign. He'll be in the hunt for 100 catches next season.
Jan 5 - 7:56 PM

Randall Cobb is absent from the Wild Card round injury report.

It's a sign the Packers are ready to unleash Cobb after he caught two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Bears. He'll be a fine option in daily leagues.
Jan 2 - 1:50 PM

Randall Cobb (leg) played on 37-of-78 snaps (47.4 percent) in the Week 17 win over the Bears.

Coming off an 11-week absence, Cobb operated mostly out of the slot and turned two targets into a 2/55/2 line. Expect a bigger role against the 49ers Sunday. During the first four games of the season, Cobb played on 92.0 percent of the snaps and averaged 10.0 targets per day. He's not even listed on this week's injury report.
Jan 2 - 8:27 AM

Randall Cobb caught two passes for 55 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Bears.

That's one way to announce your return from an 11-week absence. Cobb was nowhere to be found on the Packers' first two drives, but surfaced on the third. He mostly acted as a decoy, with his catches serving as his lone targets. Of course, both those targets went for scores, the second of which gave the Packers a 33-28 lead with 0:38 remaining that they would not relinquish. Cobb got behind the entire defense as the Bears sent the house on fourth down. Cobb should have a much bigger role against the 49ers in the Wild Card round.

Randall Cobb (leg) is active for Week 17 against the Bears.

As are Eddie Lacy (ankle) and Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). Cobb will almost certainly be on a snap count, but figures to be unleashed in the playoffs if the Pack can win today's NFC North championship game. Inactive for the Packers are WR Chris Harper, CB Jumal Rolle, LB Clay Matthews, LB Brad Jones, OG Lane Taylor, G/C JC Tretter and DE C.J. Wilson.

FOX's Jay Glazer confirms Randall Cobb (leg) will be active for Sunday's Week 17 game at Chicago.

The Packers didn't take Cobb off short-term IR for fun. Their explosive slot receiver and return man is going to suit up for this NFC North title game and contribute in any way he can. We're expecting limited offensive snaps, leading to a No. 56 fantasy ranking among wideouts.
