Cobb suffered a shoulder injury in the third preseason game but at current it is only a sprain. Whether it could threaten his Week 1 status is unknown, but based on his pain tolerance and range of motion.

Summary

Update 8/29: Randall Cobb left Green Bay's preseason game with an apparent arm/shoulder injury. Green Bay has confirmed the injury, but we are still waiting to hear the severity of the it. *Update 8/23: Jordy Nelson left the preseason game with the Steelers after suffering a non-contact injury. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports the initial diagnosis is a torn ACL. We are waiting on confirmation after the MRI report comes in, but if you are drafting today, move Randall Cobb up on your cheatsheets. Our updated rankings reflect Nelson's injury, so you can defer to our rankings if you are unsure. After finishing out his rookie contract, Cobb wisely elected to stay in Green Bay, signing a 4 year, 40 million dollar contract this off season. The decision to stay in Green Bay means that he will have to compete with Jordy Nelson for targets, but last season showed there are more than enough balls to go around. Cobb recorded career highs in catches (91), yards (1287) and touchdowns (12), while finishing the season as a top ten fantasy receiver. Cobb is electric in the open field, and the Packers have designed plays that get him out in the flat and take advantage of his ability to make plays in space. He lines up frequently in the slot, however, his routes are not limited to those of traditional slot receivers. In addition to excelling in the short passing game, Cobb has developed into a dangerous receiver down the field and along the sidelines. Depending on Jordy Nelson's health, Cobb could see more targets earlier in the year, making him a low end #1 wide receiver with the upside to exceed his totals of last year. (August 29)

Packers | Randall Cobb has AC joint sprain (Sun Aug 30, 04:36 PM) - Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, after undergoing further tests Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source. He suffered the injury in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29.

Our View: It's unclear whether Cobb will miss Week 1. Our Dr. Jene Bramel says "Excellent news. Good chance to play W1. Pain tolerance and range of motion will be keys."

Packers | Randall Cobb injures shoulder (Sat Aug 29, 09:50 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) exited a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29, and was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury.

Our View: Ouch. The Packers don't need anything serious to happen to Cobb after losing Jordy Nelson for the year in the last preseason game. We'll know more about the severity when testing results are revealed.

Packers | Randall Cobb's role unlikely to change (Tue Aug 25, 07:02 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels no pressure to replace WR Jordy Nelson (knee) as the team's No. 1 receiver this year now that Nelson is lost for the season. 'I don't think that is an issue,' Cobb said. 'I pressed last year in the beginning of the season, and I'm not going to do that again. There's no need for that. Aaron's going to do his job, he's going to get us the ball. It's my job when I get those opportunities to make things happen.' Cobb had 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and his role might not change drastically with Nelson out. Cobb has typically been a slot receiver for Green Bay, while Nelson has played on the outside.

Our View: Cobbs isn't quite the No. 1 receiver type that the Packers like, which isn't a knock on him—it's just an admission that it's not quite the right role for him. He is a WR1 for fantasy purposes, but would have been in the ballpark for that anyway. Davante Adams will get Nelson's outside job and we see him as a WR2 in most fantasy leagues. Remember though, that part of Nelson's charm is his ability to make ridiculous and acrobatic catches, something which isn't quite as much in Adams' wheelhouse.
