Randall Cobb says his Divisional Round injury was a punctured lung.
It was previously billed a "bruised" lung. A puncture is much more serious. Cobb said he was coughing up blood on the sideline after getting injured against the Cardinals. Thankfully, the ordeal resolved itself quickly. It's not an issue heading into the offseason program. After a sluggish 2015, Cobb is an intriguing buy-low Dynasty target. He's still only 25 years old. Feb 4 - 4:19 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Randall Cobb suffered a bruised lung against the Cardinals.

Cobb made a spectacular diving catch at the end of the first quarter which appeared to put the Packers inside the five, but the play was called back because of a penalty. To add injury to insult, Cobb bruised his lung when a defender came down on his chest at the end of the play. He was taken to the locker room for X-rays before being ruled out. Cobb will be kept overnight for observation of the scary injury, but he should be able to recover before the offseason program begins. Cobb posted a 79/820/6 regular season line in what was a disappointing campaign for the entire Packers offense.

Randall Cobb exited the Divisional Round game against the Cardinals with a chest injury.

Cobb made a spectacular diving catch which was negated by a penalty in the first quarter, but a defender landed on his chest at the end of the play. Cobb was ruled out after getting X-rays in the locker room. Jeff Janis has taken his spot in the lineup.
Jan 16 - 8:59 PM

Randall Cobb caught 3-of-8 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown and rushed five times for 24 yards in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Redskins.

Cobb made his presence felt on a second-quarter improvised play where Aaron Rodgers found him with a bullet over the middle for a 12-yard score. Cobb was missed by Rodgers for two potential long gains, the first an open 30-plus yarder and the second a would-be touchdown late in the first half. The Packers still aggressively involved Cobb, frequently lining him up as an I-formation tailback and feeding Cobb carries. Green Bay will need a bigger game from Cobb against Patrick Peterson's Cardinals in the Divisional Round. If it's anything like those teams' Week 16 meeting, Peterson figures to spend most of that game covering James Jones.
Jan 10 - 8:19 PM

Randall Cobb caught 6-of-8 targets for 37 yards in the Packers' Sunday night Week 17 loss to the Vikings.

Cobb entered the year as the favorite for Jordy Nelson's targets, but finished behind James Jones as the Packers' No. 1 option. His regular season ends with a 79/829/6 line. Cobb has a plus Wild Card matchup against a Washington secondary that ranks in the bottom-half of the league.
Jan 4 - 12:47 AM

Randall Cobb caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Packers' Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

The Packers were flat-out destroyed in this one 38-8, and Cobb wasn't a factor at any point. His longest catch went for eight yards, and James Jones continues to be the preferred pass-game option for Aaron Rodgers. Cobb won't be a recommended start Week 17 against the Vikings.

Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 in Arizona believes Patrick Peterson will shadow Randall Cobb on Sunday.

Finally living up to his reputation -- he's been severely overrated in recent years -- Peterson has been a true shutdown corner in his age-25 campaign, routinely matching up with No. 1 wideouts and taking them away. Peterson has rarely covered the slot, but he has shadowed smaller receivers who move around a lot like Brandin Cooks, Antonio Brown, and Travis Benjamin. The Cardinals now need Peterson to be more versatile after losing slot CB Tyrann Mathieu. James Jones' matchup would be upgraded significantly if Peterson travels with Cobb.

Randall Cobb caught 5-of-7 targets for 40 yards in the Packers' Week 15 win over the Raiders.

Cobb couldn't get loose for any substantial gains, and that's been the case for much of the season without Jordy Nelson stretching the field for him. His biggest contribution was probably a long DPI penalty drawn against him. Cobb will have a tough date with Tyrann Mathieu next week at home.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:55:00 PM

Randall Cobb caught 8-of-12 targets for 81 yards in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Cowboys, adding three carries for nine yards.

With coach Mike McCarthy calling the plays for the first time since last season's NFC Championship Game, Cobb had his best performance since Week 9, and his most catches since Week 2. He frequently lined up in the backfield. Although it still wasn't a banner day for the Packers' passing attack, everything just seemed more in sync. There was occasionally actually space for Aaron Rodgers' receivers. Cobb will be back to WR2 status against the Raiders' burnable pass defense in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 07:58:00 PM

Randall Cobb caught 4-of-5 targets for 29 yards in Green Bay's Week 13 win over the Lions, adding a fumble recovery touchdown in the end zone.

Cobb made one of the most important plays of the night when he fell on James Starks' cough up in the painted area, but otherwise got totally dominated, failing time and again to separate. With 75 percent of the season now in the books, Cobb is on pace for a thoroughly underwhelming 76/875/8. He's averaging just 11.5 yards per catch after posting a 14.1 mark in 2014. Cobb is not earning his four-year, $40 million contract. He'll be a low-end WR2 against the Cowboys in Week 14.

Randall Cobb hauled in six of seven targets for 74 yards in the Packers' Week 12 loss to the Bears.

It was a quiet night for Cobb. He did have a few highlights though. At the end of the first half, Cobb did a nice job to elude rookie Bryce Callahan on a 23-yard catch-and-run. He moved the chains again with a 32-yard pickup on Green Bay’s final possession. Cobb’s high touchdown rate has been his saving grace in fantasy though he couldn’t deliver an end zone visit in Week 12. He’ll look to get back on track against the Lions next Thursday.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 12:13:00 AM

Randall Cobb caught 2-of-9 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown Week 11 against the Vikings.

Cobb found the end zone, but overall it was another poor game. He dropped what would have been two third-down conversions in the second half including one which would have allowed the Packers to bleed even more clock late in the fourth quarter. The miscue did not come back to haunt Green Bay this time, but drops in important situations have become all too common for Cobb this season. He remains a weekly must-start as the primary target of Aaron Rodgers, but Cobb needs to cut down on the mistakes.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 07:51:00 PM

Randall Cobb caught 5-of-10 targets for 53 yards Week 10 against the Lions.

Cobb, like all the receivers, was hurt by Aaron Rodgers' uncharacteristic inaccuracy, but he appeared out of sync with his quarterback on several routes and dropped what would have been a huge gain on third down early in the game. To his credit, Cobb came up with a big third-down conversion on the Packers first touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. Cobb now has 55 yards or less in five of his last six games, and if not for a big play against the Panthers it would be six-for-six. He has caught just 50 percent of his targets over that span. There is something seriously broken in the Packers' offense, and until it is fixed Cobb cannot be considered anything more than a WR2.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 05:53:00 PM

Randall Cobb caught 4-of-12 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Cobb's touchdown was a 53-yarder where he destroyed Panthers CB Bene Benwikere on a wheel route. Cobb had another opportunity for a long touchdown in the first half, but Aaron Rodgers overthrew him after he whipped Josh Norman down the right sideline. The score was Cobb's first since Week 3, while the yards were his second most of the season. Cobb is on pace for only 80/952/10 at the season's midway point, but with the schedule easing up, he should blow by the first two totals. Cobb will be in the WR1 conversation against the Lions in Week 10.

Randall Cobb isn’t expected to be shadowed by Josh Norman.

Cobb plays the slot in three-wide sets and should only see Norman on the 13 percent of snaps he lines up outside. He’s a low-end WR2. Cobb has been held under 50 yards in four straight games.
