Randall Cobb caught 6-of-7 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

The yards were a new season high, while Cobb has now scored in 6-of-7 games. His seven touchdown receptions led all wideouts entering Week 7. Cobb's touchdown rate is still likely to regress — he's not going to score 18 times — but 12-15 is shaping up as a real possibility. Cobb will be a huge threat to find the end zone in Week 8 against the Saints' terrible defense.

Randall Cobb caught five passes for 58 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.

Cobb doesn't want to hear about all your fancy regression stats. The 5-foot-10 slot man now has an incredible seven touchdowns in six games, many of them coming off scramble plays and back-shoulder throws from Aaron Rodgers. Note that Cobb got out-targeted by Davante Adams 8-7 in this one. He's still a borderline WR1 weekly heading into a nice home matchup against the Panthers, but the TD rate does have to come back to earth soon.
Oct 12 - 4:59 PM

Randall Cobb had three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's win over the Vikings.

Cobb didn't do much outside of his 11-yard touchdown. He played the entire game, and was targeted a team-high four times. Cobb has a 24/262/6 line through five weeks. He'll be on the WR1 borderline in Week 6 against Miami.
Oct 3 - 12:15 AM

Randall Cobb caught seven passes for 113 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win at Chicago.

Even though he dropped an easy touchdown on a slant, it was Cobb's best performance of the season by a mile. Getting open at will, he continues to be a surprisingly consistent red-zone target for Aaron Rodgers. Through four games, Cobb is on pace for 84 catches, 956 yards, 20 touchdowns and 120 targets. Davante Adams is no threat to his productive slot role and outside spot in two-wide sets.
Sep 28 - 4:42 PM

Randall Cobb caught 3-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions.

The sub-40 yard effort was Cobb's second straight, while he's failed to top 60 in any of Green Bay's first three games. The scores that propped his value in Weeks 1-2 were not there today. Cobb has drawn a rather modest 21 looks through the Packers' first three games, but we'd expect that average to climb. The Pack have to get the ball in their No. 2 playmaker's hands more often. Cobb remains a WR2 despite his and the Pack's slow start.
Sep 21 - 5:37 PM

Randall Cobb caught five passes for 39 yards with two touchdowns and added a two-point conversion in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

Jordy Nelson did all the big-play work on the outside, going off for a 9-209-1 line on 16 targets. But Cobb was very effective on quick-hitters over the middle, catching five of his six targets. This red-zone impact is becoming a trend as he now has three touchdowns on his 11 catches through two games. Cobb, still capable of big plays despite his underneath role, will be a borderline WR1 against the Lions in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 8:11 PM

Randall Cobb caught 6-of-9 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.

Cobb caught the Packers' lone passing score on a night where the Legion of Boom got the better of Aaron Rodgers. Cobb should have had 44 more receiving yards, but was interfered with by Bobby Wagner on the Seahawks' seven-yard line. Cobb appeared to be his normal self, putting his rough August out of sight, out of mind. He's an upside WR2 as Aaron Rodgers' No. 2 receiver.
Sep 5 - 12:17 AM

Randall Cobb was held without a catch on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Cobb played every snap for just about the entire first half, yet flat-out dropped two of his targets. Through three preseason games, he has just three catches for 34 yards with one touchdown. Cobb hasn't had a great camp and has been up-and-down in games, but he's still a volume slot receiver for Aaron Rodgers. We're confident he'll have 80+ catches when the dust settles.
Aug 22 - 10:38 PM

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.

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.
