Cobb doubtful for Week 16 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 16. He didn’t practice all week and won’t play against the Jets on Sunday. That’ll leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs. The rookies are both just fantasy fliers.

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.
