Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) said he'd be comfortable starting in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears even if he doesn't practice next week. However, wide receivers coach Alex Van Pelt would like to see Cobb play before the season opener. Van Pelt said it's realistic for Cobb to return before Week 1, and he has no doubts that Cobb could play at a high level against the Bears even without practice.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb is clearly the Packers No. 1 target for Aaron Rodgers with Jordy Nelson out for the year, and he remains a high-end WR1 in fantasy drafts. However, depending on how much he practice next week, he might not be a slam dunk on FantasyScore in Week 1. Davante Adams will surely be a popular daily pick if Cobb is limited at all.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) thinks his sprained right shoulder will be good to go to play in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in 12 days. "I don't plan on missing a game," Cobb said. "I'm doing everything in my power to get back before then." However, there remains swelling in his shoulder, but he said he's doing much better than when he was injured in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29. Cobb did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 1, but watched from the sidelines.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Cobb doesn't suffer some sort of setback, he should be good to go for Week 1 against the Bears. Even with Jordy Nelson out for the year, Cobb should be a top-tier WR1 in all formats worth taking in the early second round. His targets should increase significantly with Nelson on the shelf.

Fantasy Tip: Randall Cobb and Davante Adams are now Aaron Rodgers' go-to wide receivers. Adams should be considered a WR2 with Cobb still in WR1 territory. If you're in a keeper league, feel free to put Nelson in your IR slot as well.

Fantasy Tip: Hamstring tightness doesn't take a lot of time to recover from. Montgomery is fighting for the Packers' No. 3 wide receiver job, so he's worth a stash on your fantasy roster.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, after undergoing further tests Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source. He suffered the injury in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb's status for the season opener against the Chicago Bears is in question, although the injury is considered to be minor. If he is not able to play in Week 1, Davante Adams would serve as the team's No. 1 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on Cobb's injury. If he is forced to miss any regular season games, Davante Adams would become Green Bay's de facto No. 1 receiver with Jordy Nelson already out for the year.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have already paid for playing their starters after losing Jordy Nelson last week. The backups will have a chance to get more repetitions in and prove they deserve a spot on the team. This has no impact on fantasy value for the starters.
