Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels much better about his level of play in recent weeks than he did at the start of the year. "You just kind of get in a zone," Cobb said. "It's like a runner's high, or writing an exam paper and you're on page 7, and the next thing you know you're on page 12. It's just one of those things where you continue to press on, and things happen."
Fantasy Tip: Cobb has found the end zone at least once in four straight games, and he should be in for another big performance in Week 8 against a New Orleans defense that is allowing more than 270 yards per game through the air. His $7,800 salary (15.6% of cap) at FantasyScore ranks third at the position, but Cobb has the matchup and the momentum to live up to the price tag.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson's 12.3 targets per game are the most in the NFL after three weeks, and WR Randall Cobb ranks second on the team with 7.0 targets per game.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb has padded his point total this season by catching three touchdowns, but Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon right now. Cobb will cost $7,4000 (14.8% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 and Nelson will cost $8,300 (16.6% of cap), but Nelson could be worth the extra cost because of the hefty amount of targets he has been seeing.
Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:26:11 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In his final meeting against the Bears in Week 15 of the 2012 season, he had six grabs for 115 yards. In his only meeting last season against the Bears, he managed two catches for 55 yards, and both grabs went for touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb is a solid value in FantasyScore at $7400 (or 14.8 percent of the salary cap), especially since he has three touchdown grabs in the first three games.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 06:24:32 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson had nine catches for 83 yards and was targeted 14 times in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Nelson posted a solid 17.3 points in Week 1 on FantasyScore. The Packers had him flanked out left with Randall Cobb in the slot a lot. Jarrett Boykin was not thrown to as he was split out right and drew Richard Sherman most of the night. They'll have easier assignments next week against the New York Jets.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 06:20:53 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb had six catches for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb put forth a solid performance with 17.8 points on FantasyScore in Week 1 in what was a quiet night for the offense.
Mon, 04 Aug 2014 17:49:09 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 4, after walking off the field slowly following a hard fall in the end zone during team drills.
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 09:51:26 -0700
Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb, Myles White and Jared Abbrederis were returning punts in practice Thursday, July 31. White struggled Wednesday, July 30, but looked better Thursday. White never returned punts or kickoffs in college, but he could be a valuable asset in the return game due to his speed, if he makes the team.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:37:15 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb doesn't think he's done enough yet in his career to deserve a contract extension from the team. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal, and Cobb had a breakout year in 2012 with 80 catches for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. "I got injured in a way that there was nothing I could do about it," Cobb said. "I think my job is just to come out here every day, do what I'm supposed to, continue to work hard, and hopefully my time will come."
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 11:52:47 -0800
The Green Bay Packers view an extension with WR Jordy Nelson as a priority over one for WR Randall Cobb, according to a person with knowledge of the team's plans. Nelson has a year and $2.5 million left on his deal. Cobb has expressed that he'd like to remain in Green Bay.
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 06:02:00 -0800
The Green Bay Packers haven't discussed a contract extension with WR Randall Cobb.
Thu, 09 Jan 2014 20:10:03 -0800
Green Bay Packers wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett said WR Randall Cobb could see time as an outside receiver in the future. "I think just going back and talking about a tough-minded individual, mentally as well as physically, I think he can go outside. That's something that we certainly talked about and worked on some during training camp. 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."
Fri, 03 Jan 2014 12:53:29 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb is expected to be used in the slot position this weekend.
Wed, 01 Jan 2014 11:25:45 -0800

Sun, 29 Dec 2013 10:07:07 -0800

Sun, 29 Dec 2013 06:32:06 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is expected to play in the team's Week 17 game.
Fantasy Tip: Use caution in starting Cobb. Even with him being back on the playing field, it may take some time for him to get back up to speed.
Sat, 28 Dec 2013 14:37:45 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) was activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Dec. 28, and was added to the injury report with a listing of questionable.
Fantasy Tip: This means he's not certain to play on Sunday, but anyone in a Week 17 Super Bowl has a new waiver-wire target if he's available. If Cobb suits up, he may not play the entire game, but his WR2 upside is enough on which to take a chance if you own someone like Dwayne Bowe. (concussion).
Thu, 26 Dec 2013 15:20:07 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (leg) did well during practice Thursday, Dec. 26, and is making good progress. Cobb will be reevaluated Friday, Dec. 27.
Thu, 26 Dec 2013 10:12:46 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) was very close to playing in Week 16, meaning he has a real chance to return in Week 17 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Tip: This is positive news for the Packers, especially if they make the playoffs, but it's too risky to bank on a Cobb return if you're playing for your league's championship.
Mon, 23 Dec 2013 12:24:05 -0800

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 14:13:44 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) worked out Monday, Dec. 9, but has not been cleared to return to game action.

Sat, 07 Dec 2013 07:38:16 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) said he is frustrated by not being cleared, something he hoped would have happened by now. "I thought I was going to be cleared to run two weeks ago, and I still haven't been," Cobb said.
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 15:26:00 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) has yet to be cleared to return to action.
Fantasy Tip: Don't hold out hope for Cobb to make it back this season. If he does return, it probably won't do you any good in your fantasy playoffs.
Wed, 20 Nov 2013 19:06:49 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is off crutches and he is no longer using a Segway to get around. Cobb spoke with reporters Wednesday, Nov. 20, but he did not offer a timetable for when he will be able to return to practice. Cobb is on the Injured Reserve/designated to return list, and he will be eligible to play Dec. 15. He is eligible to practice two weeks before that. "I can't make that call right now," Cobb said. "Right now, today, I cannot play. I'm doing everything I can. I'm working my butt off in the rehab process, but this is something that needs time. It's getting better. There's still no timeline on when I can come back."
Fantasy Tip: In the next week or two, it might be a good idea to stash Cobb on your fantasy bench if you have some roster flexibility, and now if you have a vacant injured spot. There is no guarantee he will be able to return at all, or be effective when he does come back. However, he is a dynamic player who is worth the risk.
Sun, 20 Oct 2013 16:41:06 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin posted 103 receiving yards in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns. He entered the game with just 70 career receiving yards, but saw plenty of action with injuries to WRs Randall Cobb (leg) and James Jones (knee) inactive.
Fantasy Tip: Boykin should continue to be in the mix for targets in the Green Bay offense, especially with TE Jermichael Finley (head) also leaving the game Sunday due to a head injury. Boykin is worth a look as a WR4 or flex play in most fantasy formats.
Tue, 15 Oct 2013 14:19:41 -0700
The Green Bay Packers placed WR Randall Cobb (leg) on the Injured Reserve-Designated to Return list Tuesday, Oct. 15.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 15:00:59 -0700
Updating previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is expected to miss six to eight weeks because of a fractured fibula he suffered Week 6.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb owners can consider dropping him in their leagues because he may not be back until the last month of the season. Owners in deeper leagues should look to add Jarrett Boykin because his role in the passing game probably will increase substantially with Cobb out with a long-term injury.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:27:09 -0700
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (knee) could miss around a month because of his knee injury, but will not miss the rest of the season.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:22:27 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (knee) will miss several weeks because of the knee injury he suffered Week 6.
Fantasy Tip: With Cobb missing time, Jarrett Boykin and Jermichael Finley likely will receive bigger roles in the passing game. Owners in deeper leagues could consider adding Boykin as a flex option. Finley was performing well before Cobb's injury, but now should be seen as a safe starting tight end option each week. James Jones could also see a bump in value depending on when he will be able to return from his injury.
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 16:24:15 -0700
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (knee) is scheduled for an MRI Monday, Oct. 14, according to sources. The early indications are that Cobb avoided a major injury to his knee after leaving the Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 15:58:23 -0700
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (knee) returned to the sidelines in the second half of the Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens wearing a full leg brace while on crutches.

"I'm hopeful for good information once we get him back."
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 11:32:28 -0700

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 11:08:53 -0700

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 16:44:26 -0700

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 11:55:15 -0700
Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he is not sure if Finley will be able to practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Fantasy Tip: It appears there is a chance that Finley may not be able to play Week 2 because of his toe injury. If he is not able to play, Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and James Jones could see a bump on their fantasy values because they would receive more targets in the passing game.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 21:12:11 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Jeremy Ross got the first crack at punt returns in practice Monday, Aug. 26, followed by WR Randall Cobb, CB Tramon Williams and CB Micah Hyde.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:48:51 -0700

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 16:00:28 -0700

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 11:20:41 -0700

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 18:59:18 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said it is unlikely that WR Randall Cobb (biceps) will be able to play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the St. Louis Rams.
Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:25:11 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Jeremy Ross might make the 53-man roster due to his play on special teams, and not necessarily his play in the passing game. He has been a good tackler on special teams, and also appears to be the frontrunner for both kickoffs and punt returns, at least while WR Randall Cobb (biceps) is not 100 percent.
Fantasy Tip: Ross has no fantasy appeal in re-draft leagues, but could be somewhat valuable in those specialty leagues which reward individual return yardage if he lands both kickoff and punt return duties.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 14:07:16 -0700
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (biceps) is practicing through the pain associated with a biceps injury. "I have some pain," Cobb said. "I'm dealing with that. The hardest part for me is that I'm a tough guy. I don't like missing practice. I'm trying to be smart and tough and that's a little bit difficult for me. I understand I have some limitations and have to be smart about it, but it's difficult."
Fantasy Tip: While it is a good sign that Cobb has been able to practice through the pain, it is still something to keep an eye on as we get closer to the regular season.
