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.
In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the Jets have agreed to a one-year deal with WR Randall Cobb. The Aaron Rodgers teddy bear averaged just 3.6 targets per game with Green Bay over the past two seasons, after returning from exile ... er, Houston. Cobb has reached 40 receptions just once in the past five seasons. He's not a fantasy factor heading into his age-33 campaign. We'll see, though, how much he disrupts the playing time of younger teammates. Even while missing four games last year, Cobb still ranked fourth among Packers WRs in snap share.
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.
