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.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is officially active for tonight's game vs. the Titans. We're expecting him to step back in as Green Bay's primary slot receiver, but Cobb would be a weak fantasy play. He topped 3 catches in just 1 of 5 games to open the season.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is expected to be activated and play vs. the Titans tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cobb has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 6. He operated as Green Bay's primary slot receiver over the first 5 games of the season but had just 1 useful fantasy outing. Cobb can be left on waiver wires.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) has been designated to return from IR. He's now eligible to practice and be activated for Thursday night's game vs. the Titans. We'll see if Cobb is ready for that one. When healthy, he figures to step back in as Green Bay's primary slot receiver. Cobb averaged 5.0 targets, 3.4 catches and 50 yards over the first 5 games of the season.
Packers WR Randall Cobb is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with his sprained ankle, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's good news after it was originally feared to be a potentially season-ending injury. Still, Cobb isn't worth stashing on fantasy rosters while he's out. WRs Amari Rodgers and Juwann Winfree split slot duties in Cobb's place this past week.
Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Monday that WR Randall Cobb's ankle injury is not season-ending but that he'll likely be out multiple weeks. His absence will leave WR Amari Rodgers as Green Bay's primary slot receiver. LaFleur did say that WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) might be ready to come off IR this week. But Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs are the only Packers WRs worth rostering in fantasy.
