Cobb out for Week 11 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Seahawks. That again leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the clear #2 WR and an upside WR3 in fantasy lineups. Fellow rookie Equanimeous St. Brown will serve as the #3 WR.

On the same day they traded away WR DeAndre Hopkins, the Texans also agreed to a 3-year deal with WR Randall Cobb. NFL Network's James Jones reports it's a $27 million pact, including $18.75 million guaranteed. That comes a year after Cobb managed only a 1-year, $5 million contract with the Cowboys. Cobb did rebound with Dallas last season. He averaged 15.1 yards per catch after 4 straight seasons of 10.5 or less, and Pro Football Focus graded him a solid 57th among all WRs, up from 115th in 2018. But Cobb also averaged just 3.7 receptions per game as the #3 wideout and hasn't reached 56 yards per game since 2014. Cobb joins Kenny Stills and Will Fuller in a Houston WR corps with no clear leader. But they do, at least, have a dynamic young QB. Cobb will turn 30 in August.

Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence opens up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.

Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. After putting in a full workout on Wednesday, he didn’t practice at all on Thursday or Friday. Cobb is averaging 5.4 targets per game, so his absence would open up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.

The Cowboys have signed WR Randall Cobb to a 1-year, $5 million deal. Since his 1,287-yard 2014 campaign, Cobb has averaged just 46.7 yards per game and missed 11 contests over the past 4 seasons. Turning 29 in August, his best days are clearly behind him. Cobb figures to step into Cole Beasley's slot role in Dallas. Beasley averaged 80.8 targets across the last 4 years -- a fair projection for Cobb in 2019. He figures to struggle for more than WR4 value.

Packers WR Randall Cobb has cleared the concussion protocol, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Barring a setback, Cobb will return for Sunday's finale. He figures to step back in as the primary slot receiver vs. a Lions defense that's allowed the 7th most PPR points to slot guys.
