Randall Cobb caught 1-of-3 targets for 33 yards Week 3 against the Lions.
While Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson got on track, Cobb did not get his invitation to the party. He started on the right foot with a 33-yard grab on a broken play on the opening drive, but he only saw two targets the rest of the way. Cobb will certainly have bigger days moving forward, but he has not had more than 60 yards through the air since Week 13 of last year. He will be no better than a WR3 coming out of the Week 4 bye.

Randall Cobb secured 5-of-7 targets for 42 yards in the Packers’ Week 2 loss to the Vikings.

It’s the second straight game Cobb has been held out of the end-zone. There hasn't been much to like about Cobb's role to this point, but he's still the clear No. 2 option. Cobb is more of a WR3 for Sunday's Detroit matchup.
Sep 19 - 12:49 AM

Randall Cobb caught 6-of-8 targets for 58 yards in Green Bay's Week 1 win over the Jaguars, adding three rushes for 11 additional yards.

It's a line that would have looked familiar during Cobb's disappointing 2015. Cobb also had an injury scare, having to be helped off the field before quickly returning. The Packers' aerial scores were caught by Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. Cobb will be in the WR18-24 range for next week's trip to Minnesota.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Randall Cobb "played the whole season last year injured."

Cobb injured his shoulder in the third preseason game last year, and that issue apparently affected him all season. Cobb said the injury prevented him from lifting weights, which led to him losing a lot of strength. Now healthy, Cobb has put back on the weight and then some. He looks poised for a bounce-back season.

Randall Cobb caught 3-of-3 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' third preseason game.

Cobb looked like the player the Packers needed him to be last season -- but he wasn't -- knifing through the 49ers' defense before catching a quick screen from Aaron Rodgers and powering in for a short TD. Cobb tortured 49ers CB Chris Davis in the slot. Still only 26 years old, Cobb is headed for a bounce-back campaign. Recall he was a top-six fantasy receiver as recently as 2014.

Randall Cobb admitted he struggled in 2015.

"I didn't perform at the capacity that I know I can perform at," Cobb said. "I'm the only one who can change that." Without Jordy Nelson (ACL), Cobb struggled under the pressure of the No. 1 role. His counting stats were well below the career highs he set the year before, and his efficiency nosedived. The good news is Nelson should be fully healthy well before Week 1, and the offense looks poised to bounce back. Despite the terrible year, Cobb is a value in the fourth round.

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.

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.
