Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he "would anticipate" WR Randall Cobb playing in Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the 49ers. Cobb has been sidelined since undergoing core-muscle surgery after Week 12. His return would be especially important if WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is out.

Packers WR Randall Cobb had core-muscle surgery last week, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Cobb is expected to miss "several games," per Demovsky, "putting the rest of his season in jeopardy." It sounds like Cobb is hoping to be back for the playoffs. He can be dropped in all redraft leagues.

Packers WR Randall Cobb will be "out a while" with a "pretty significant" core injury, HC Matt LaFleur said Thursday. Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard will be locked in as Green Bay's top 3 WRs with Cobb out.

Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered a groin injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and won't return. He was having a big one before exiting, catching 4 balls for 95 yards and a score. Cobb's absence leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard as Green Bay's 2nd and 3rd WRs.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb as Green Bay’s clear #2 and #3 WRs.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. His absence should make WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb close to full-time players. Both guys are still just fantasy fliers, though.

Packers WRs Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were not activated from the COVID list ahead of the 4 pm ET deadline and are out for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) was not activated from IR and is also out. Green Bay did activate WR Malik Taylor from the COVID list and elevated WR Juwann Winfree from the practice squad. So the Packers' WRs tonight are Randall Cobb, Equaniemous St. Brown, Amari Rodgers, Taylor and Winfree.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has joined WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. Both guys are virtual locks to miss Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if Green Bay loses anyone else for that one. The Packers are currently down to WRs Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and Amari Rodgers on the active roster. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is eligible to come off IR. WRs Juwann Winfree and Chris Blair are on the practice squad. RB Aaron Jones and TE Robert Tonyan figure to play big roles in the passing game on Thursday night.

The Packers have placed WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. With their Week 8 game coming Thursday night in Arizona, that almost certainly means Adams will miss the game, regardless of his particular situation. That leaves Green Bay without the guy who has drawn 33% of Aaron Rodgers' pass attempts to date. It also leaves Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard as the top wideouts, with Equanimeous St. Brown likely factoring in as well. We'll see whether WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is ready to come off IR.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is expected to land on IR, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. MVS has already been ruled out for Week 4 and will also miss Weeks 5 and 6. He's droppable in most fantasy leagues. We'll see exactly how snaps are divvied behind WR Davante Adams in Sunday's game vs. the Steelers.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Allen Lazard should step into the #2 WR role, with Randall Cobb also picking up some extra snaps in the slot.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Look for Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb to operate as Green Bay's #2 and #3 WRs in that one, but they're really only in play in DFS.

ESPN's Kevin Seifert expects Randall Cobb to beat out Amari Rodgers for the Packers' starting slot receiver job this season. "Aaron Rodgers' long and clear history of favoring veteran receivers should be the guiding light of this discussion," Seifert writes, noting that no Packers rookie WR has topped 68 targets in a season with Rodgers. Cobb, of course, spent his first 8 NFL seasons with Rodgers. And he remained reasonably effective with the Texans last year. He has a real shot to finish 2nd on the 2021 Packers in targets and is worth considering late in PPR drafts.

WR Randall Cobb tweeted that he's been traded to the Packers, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that the deal will be done once Green Bay gains cap space to make room. Cobb spent his first 8 seasons with QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, finishing as a top 30 fantasy WR 3 times (2012, 2014 and 2015). He posted a 55-828-3 line and WR42 PPR finish with the Cowboys in 2019. Then in Houston last year, Cobb tallied 38 catches, 441 yards and 3 scores in 10 games. He finished 60th in PPR points per game. But Cobb ranked a respectable 26th in yards per target, 52nd in yards per route run and 50th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 99 WRs with 40+ targets. Rodgers clearly had a big say in this move -- and we'd expect him to make sure Cobb is the starting slot receiver this season. That'll leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard and rookie Amari Rodgers fighting for the last spot in 3-WR sets. In Houston, meanwhile, Cobb's departure frees up the starting slot job. Consider newly acquired WR Anthony Miller the favorite to win that.
