Packers' Randall Cobb cracks century mark, scores eighth TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb scored and cracked the century mark in a comfortable Week 8 victory over the Panthers.

Cobb came down with a 3-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers in the second quarter. He was thrown to seven times and finished with six grabs for 121 yards and a score, averaging 20.2 yards per reception in a 38-17 victory. He has two 100-yards games this season. He has compiled 452 receiving yards with eight touchdowns.

The Packers will face the Saints in Week 8.


Don't go crazy for Davante Adams


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) For a team's third wide receiver to have significant value in Fantasy, that team's passing attack has to be pretty explosive. Green Bay's typically has been with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is having a banner year with 15 touchdown passes to just one interception.

And yet in three of Rodgers' six games this season, he's thrown for less than 200 yards. As a team, the Packers rank only 20th in passing yards per game. That's not my idea of explosive.

Certainly things could change. Eddie Lacy has failed to give them much of a running game, which could cause them to go more pass-heavy in the weeks ahead. But more than anything, the reason third wide receiver Davante Adams performed so well Week 6 at Miami, catching six passes for 77 yards, was because co-No. 1 Randall Cobb didn't. Rodgers threw for a modest 264 yards. Unless he goes for a consistent 300, you can't expect Adams to make a regular contribution in Fantasy in his current role.

So in standard leagues of 12 teams or fewer, I'm leaving him on waivers. For the list of wide receivers Jamey Eisenberg is adding over him, check out his latest Playing the Waiver Wire.


Packers' Randall Cobb comes down with touchdown No. 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb came down with his seventh touchdown of the season Sunday afternoon against Miami in Week 6.

Aaron Rodgers rolled out of the pocket and found Cobb for a 5-yard strike in the end zone on a third-and-goal in the third quarter. Cobb was targeted seven times and finished with five grabs for 58 yards and a score in a 27-24 victory. He has 331 receiving yards through six games.

The Packers will host the Panthers in Week 7.


Packers' Randall Cobb scores league-leading sixth touchdown


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb came down with his league-leading sixth touchdown catch of the season in a Week 5 victory at home against the Vikings.

Cobb caught an 8-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers in the end zone for a touchdown in the first quarter. With the game well in hand, he and the rest of the starters were pulled early in the fourth quarter. As a result, he finished with only three catches for 34 yards, averaging 11.3 yards per grab. He was targeted four times in a 42-10 victory.

Cobb has eight touchdowns in his last five regular season games dating back to last season. Through five games, he has 24 catches for 273 yards and six scores. He'll look to add another touchdown in Week 6 at Miami.


Coaches praise Packers WR Randall Cobb for mindset


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) The work ethic and determination of Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb not only allowed him to bounce back Sunday from a poor performance in Week 3 against Detroit, but it earned him the praise of Mike McCarthy.

"Randall's a tireless worker. He's a true pro," McCarthy told the team website. "He was that way at a young age. His rookie year, he was clearly one of the most impressive rookies from a maturity standpoint that we've had come through the doors. He's the same guy every day. ... The performance of prior games, it might give you more motivation. I've never seen him need more urgency in his approach. He's a very consistent professional."

Cobb achieved season-highs with seven catches and 113 yards in the defeat of the Bears on Sunday and added two touchdowns to give him five on the season. Receivers coach Edgar Bennett was duly impressed, but not particularly surprised.

"He's one of the toughest - I say receiver - but football players I've been around," Bennett said. "Not only from a physical standpoint, but that's mentality as well. He's tough minded. He understands what goes into it, and what it's going to take to go from good to great. That's always the standard. 'Good is not good enough.' ... I think that's the mindset, certainly, that he has."


Randall Cobb proves he matters between the 20s


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) While Randall Cobb owners weren't exactly disappointed with their top wide receiver's performance through the first three weeks, there was some reason for concern heading into Week 4 at Chicago. He had already scored three touchdowns, sure, but he had also averaged just 42.0 receiving yards through three games.

Against the Bears, though, he finally got the yards to go along with the touchdowns, scoring twice more with a team-high 113 yards on seven catches. Five of those catches came between the 20s.

Helping Cobb's cause was the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers finally lived up to expectations, throwing for more than 200 yards for just the second time this season. Cobb had just 39 yards when Rodgers threw for a career-high 346 in Week 2.

But he did have two touchdowns in that game as well, so it's clear Rodgers has as much confidence in him as ever. You should, too.


Randall Cobb helps bury Bears with huge game in Week 4


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Packers wideout Randall Cobb had average overall numbers highlighted by three touchdowns heading into Week 4. But against the Bears on Sunday, he added season-highs in catches and yards.

Cobb caught seven passes for a game-high 113 yards and did as much to bury the Bears as anyone. He raced past a cornerback for a 22-yard score with a minute left in the first half, then added a 3-yard reception eight seconds into the fourth quarter to put the cherry on top of an easy victory.

He wasn't done, however. He added a 46-yard in the middle of the final quarter and finished with seven catches for 113 yards. Cobb will seek to take his momentum and run with it Thursday night against the visiting Vikings.


Randall Cobb frustrated with play after three weeks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was not happy following his team's 19-7 loss Sunday against the Lions. Cobb totaled only three catches for 29 yards, and the entire offense struggled against a Lions defense that was decimated by injury.

"Our defense played their butts off tonight," Cobb said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We did nothing for them. It was kind of embarrassing as an offense, embarrassing myself the way I played."

Although Cobb had two touchdowns Week 2 and three on the season, he has just 14 catches for 126 yards through three games. He also has just one catch of 20-plus yards.

"I have to do more, I have to give this team more," he said. "I have to look in the mirror first and see where it is that I can do more to help this team out."


Randall Cobb can't get open Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb couldn't get open Week 3 against the Lions.

Cobb caught just three passes for 29 yards during the contest. He was targeted six times, which ranked second on the team. The Packers offense was held in check throughout the game, and no player really broke out. Cobb will look for more Week 4 against Chicago. 


Randall Cobb scores twice in Week 2 win vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb caught five of his six targets for 39 yards and two touchdowns while gaining six yards on two carries in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Cobb hauled in a touchdown with only eight seconds left in the first half to bring his team within one score going into halftime. He scored again from one yard out on a relatively easy play in the third quarter, but he wasn't able to break any long gains over the course of the game to boost his yardage total. Nonetheless, Cobb has scored three touchdowns in the first two weeks. His next test comes next Sunday against the Lions in Detroit.


Randall Cobb finds the end zone Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb found the end zone Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Cobb turned in a solid game, catching six balls on nine targets. He gained 58 yards and scored the team’s only touchdown. That touchdown didn’t come until the Packers trailed by 19 points. The team turned in a 10-play drive, capping it off with a 3 yard strike to Cobb. 

Cobb was also involved in one of the Packers few big offensive plays. Early in the second quarter, Cobb drew an offensive pass interference call that gained 44 yards. The Packers would go on to kick a field goal at the end of the drive. 

Cobb will take on the Jets Week 2. 


Randall Cobb to be tested Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb should be in for a tough test Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Cobb caught just three passes during the preseason, picking up 34 yards and a score. His lack of work shouldn’t be a huge concern, as the Packers offense doesn’t need any fine-tuning. The main thing here is that Cobb is 100 percent healthy after playing in just six games last season due to a leg injury.

His Week 1 production could be dampened by a strong Seahawks DST. Seattle was exceptional against the pass last season, holding opposing wide receivers to just 14.79 Fantasy points per game. That figure was the second-lowest rate in the league. On top of that, Cobb may have to deal with Richard Sherman, who is considered one of the best cornerbacks in the league. Sherman may spend the majority of the game stopping Jordy Nelson, but he could find his way over to Cobb on a few occasions.

Cobb’s versatility makes him a strong candidate to be moved around the Packers’ offense. If Green Bay can create some nice matchups, and Sherman is preoccupied with Nelson, Cobb could be in for a better game than people might expect. 

Despite that, expectations should be tempered. Seattle’s DST was strong last season, and while Green Bay boasts a strong offense, things should be muted Week 1. Cobb is a fine start, considering his upside, but he carries more risk this week due to the matchup.

Randall Cobb finds the end zone vs. Rams


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb found the end zone during Saturday’s preseason matinee against the Rams.

McGinn: Randall Cobb 'hasn't stood out'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2014) Long-time Packers reporter and analyst Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that since the start of training camp, Jordy Nelson has out-shined Randall Cobb in every way -- and Cobb knows it

"I don't believe I've done enough," Cobb said. "I think my job is to come out here every day, do what I'm supposed to do, work hard and hopefully my time will come. I feel I have a lot to prove."

Per McGinn, Cobb "hasn't stood out" and "has made almost no eye-catching plays." McGinn has also noted that Cobb hasn't played more that 647 snaps in any season so far in his career. 


Jordy Nelson, not Randall Cobb, is Packers' No. 1 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Packers' official website considers Jordy Nelson the team's No. 1 receiver and Randall Cobb the No. 2 receiver. Nelson, who plays the "X" receiver spot, is the guy who "lines up on the line of scrimmage. He’s the guy who’s big enough and strong enough to get off the jam, and fast enough to defeat the jam and still get deep," the website said.

Cobb plays the flanker or the slot. "He’s a guy who plays off the line of scrimmage and is used in a lot of strategic ways," the report said.


Randall Cobb to lead league in receptions?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Packers receiver Randall Cobb was headed for a big 2013 season when he broke his leg. The team's website says if he stays healthy, Cobb "could lead the league in receptions" because "he plays in an offense that is going to use him in multiple ways."

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has described Cobb as a "100-catch guy." Cobb caught 80 passes for 954 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games in 2012.


Packers have to decide on future of Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) The Packers enter this season knowing receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson will be free agents after this year, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

And both receivers are hoping to get paid.

"I'm not a businessman, so I don't really know that side of that, that's what I have an agent for," said Cobb. "That's for the Packers to decide and to figure out."

Nelson was asked if he talked to his agent and gave any kind of deadline discussing, or not discussing, a possible extension as he prepares for the upcoming season.

"Obviously, you want to get it done as soon as possible," said Nelson. "But there are a lot of other people that are involved in that. It's a process and we'll just have to wait and see how it goes. I guess I'm more focused on hoping it gets done before we get to that."


Packers want to take Randall Cobb off returns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Packers want Randall Cobb to play strictly as a receiver this season, reports ESPN.com. Cobb returned three punts and a kickoff last year and has three career return touchdowns.

With James Jones' departure, Green Bay does not want to expose Cobb to additional injury risk.


Randall Cobb, Packers not talking extension yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/19/2014) Packers receiver Randall Cobb said Tuesday he has not heard from the team in regards to a contract extensions, reports NFL.com. Cobb is entering a contract year in 2014.

"Not that I know of," Cobb said of any contact with the Packers over a new deal. "My agent hasn't mentioned it to me, so I don't know if there's been any talks."

Cobb said his preference is to sign a long-term deal with the Packers.

"I would definitely love that," he said. "But unfortunately that won't be my decision. That will be on the team to come to me with that decision. I would love to get it out the way and not to have to worry about any of the conversations or answering any questions during the season that would take away from what we're trying to do as a football team."


Randall Cobb determined to break more tackles in '14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Packers receiver Randall Cobb caught a deep pass in the fourth quarter of Sunday's playoff loss and had one man to beat for a touchdown. 49ers safety Eric Reid tripped up Cobb at the 9-yard line, and Green Bay settled for a field goal.

“I’ve got to get better at breaking tackles,” Cobb said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “If I want to be a great player – and not just a good player – I have to do more. I have to be more. I’m going to take that upon myself this offseason. I’m going to let this pain that I feel right now fuel me to come back stronger and better next season.”

Cobb broke or avoided six tackles in six regular-season games, according to Pro Football Focus. Seattle's Golden Tate led receivers in that category, causing 21 missed tackles.


Randall Cobb does not play full complement of snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers receiver Randall Cobb, in his second game back from a broken leg, did not play a full complement of snaps in the playoff loss to the 49ers. He caught both his targets for 51 yards, including a 26-yard gain to convert 4th-and-2 in the fourth quarter.

Cobb also returned four kickoffs for 87 yards. He'll get the offseason to heal up completely as he enters the last year of his four-year deal.


Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb not on injury report


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Randall Cobb are not on this week's injury report. "They look great, feel great," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have no worries about those two."

Rodgers returned from a broken collarbone and Cobb from a broken leg to play Week 17 at Chicago. They'll face the 49ers in a playoff game Sunday.


Randall Cobb played way more snaps than expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2013) Packers receiver Randall Cobb was only supposed to play about 15 snaps in his Week 17 return from a broken leg. He ended up playing 37, catching two second-half touchdowns to knock off the Bears and send Green Bay to the playoffs.

"Going in we said if we can get him 15 or so snaps, that would be great,” offensive coordinator Tom Clements told the team's websiet. “He played more and he felt fine, so I’m sure that’s good for his confidence. He didn’t have a problem playing the extended number of plays, so that’s good.”

Cobb, who ran 23 pass routes, could get an even bigger workload Sunday as a nearly full-time slot receiver, enabling Jordy Nelson to stay outside. In Week 1, Cobb caught seven passes for 108 yards and a touchdown against San Francisco.

“He’s dangerous with the ball in his hands,” Clements said. “If you can get him the ball, he has a chance to make big plays out of short gains. Not that Jordy can’t, but obviously Randall is a little smaller. He’s used to being a punt returner and a kick returner, running in traffic and making guys miss. That’s where he excels.”


Randall Cobb strikes twice in Week 17 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb made his presence felt with a pair of late-game touchdowns in his first game back from a broken leg Sunday against the Bears in Week 17.

In his first game back since Week 6, Cobb came down with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter. With the season on the line, Rodgers then found Cobb on a 4th-and-8 play for a 48-yard touchdown with 38 seconds remaining in the game. He caught all two of his targets for 55 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-28 victory.

Cobb had just two touchdown grabs before Sunday's game. He finished the regular season with 31 catches for 433 yards and four touchdowns. He'll look to keep rolling at home against the 49ers in the opening round of the playoffs.
