Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs DET (6 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Cobb was a jack of all trades on Sunday, running the ball once, completing a pass to Brett Hundley and scoring the Packers' lone touchdown of the day. It came on a drive where he recorded three catches for 33 yards and it was the lone spark on an otherwise virtually lifeless offense.
2017 Week 16 vs MIN (7 / 4 / 22 / 0 rec, 1 / -6 / 0 rush)
Out of the pure receivers, Cobb was the most "productive", second behind Lance Kendricks of all people in overall receiving options. As bad as Brett Hundley was under center, Cobb was just as hobbled by the Vikings defense which blanketed him on most routes.
2017 Week 15 vs CAR (14 / 7 / 84 / 1 rec)
Cobb saw one of his more productive games with Aaron Rodgers under center, and had a nice long touchdown catch in the second quarter to boot. On that play, Cobb took a short route outside and was uncovered. Under pressure, Rodgers escaped the pocket and ran to his right, where he saw a wide-open Cobb. The receiver made the catch and turned upfield, eluding two tacklers as he slipped into the end zone. Cobb looked as good as we have seen him this year, gaining yards after the catch consistently for the first time in a while.
2017 Week 14 vs CLE (8 / 8 / 39 / 0 rec)
Often coming out of the slot, Cobb caught everything thrown his way, though he caught most of his passes in the first half. Cobb wasn't able to get free for many yards after the catch, and as his receptions were generally on short passes, that meant he didn't total all that much. He looked good catching the ball, but the areas he caught the ball in were too crowded to add many yards, and the passes too close to--or sometimes behind--the line of scrimmage to put him in a position to improve on that.
2017 Week 12 vs PIT (4 / 4 / 58 / 1 rec)
Cobb caught all of his targets Sunday night, though they weren't terribly numerous in number. His biggest play was a 33-yard touchdown reception where the Steelers' coverage fell apart and Cobb was wide open. Brett Hundley saw that and immediately threw the ball to Cobb, who took it to the house.
2017 Week 11 vs BAL (6 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Cobb worked mostly out of the slot but couldn't take advantage of what should have been a nice mismatch against the Baltimore linebackers. Cobb and Jordy Nelson were the most frequently targeted member of the offense after Davante Adams, but he struggled to gain separation, and when he did, Brett Hundley struggled to deliver the ball.
2017 Week 10 vs CHI (4 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec, 4 / 8 / 0 rush)
Cobb didn't have a ton of luck overall, but did show some of the yard after the catch agility which has been absent for some time now on a catch he turned into a 38-yard gain. The team tried to use him running the ball as well, setting him up in a Wildcat, but it wasn't effective.
2017 Week 9 vs DET (5 / 5 / 58 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Cobb seemed to be the player most on the same page as the inconsistent Brett Hundley and caught all of his targets. He had a nice bit of yards after the catch on a 46-yard catch and run which harkened back to his glory days a few years back. Cobb was able to slip behind the front seven, and found some room to run before getting taken down.
2017 Week 7 vs NO (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Cobb was quiet on a day where his quarterback struggled to connect with anyone. His role was already declining with the team, buried behind Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson, and a poor showing at quarterback isn't going to help.
2017 Week 6 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)
While Cobb caught everything thrown his way, it didn't amount to much. He is clearly third behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams--you could make a strong argument he occasionally falls behind Martellus Bennett as well--for targets and losing Aaron Rodgers didn't help what little production he gets on a weekly basis.
2017 Week 5 vs DAL (5 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec)
Cobb seemed to be a big target in the first half, but Aaron Rodgers went away from him in the second. Some of that might be the lack of time the Packers offense was on the field, but it seems sure that Adams has supplanted Cobb as the No. 2 and while he will occasionally produce, it will not be consistently.
2017 Week 4 vs CHI (4 / 4 / 44 / 1 rec)
Cobb caught all of his targets on Thursday, including a 2-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to put the Packers up 14-0. The score was off of a short slant where Cobb had great position over the defender. It appears as though Cobb and Davante Adams may jockey back and forth for the second and third receiver position now that Cobb is healthy again and Adams is banged up. That could change when Adams is back to full health. If Adams is out next week, the Packers will look to Cobb as the number two.
2017 Week 2 vs ATL (9 / 6 / 60 / 0 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
Cobb, like the rest of the Packers offense, started to pile up yards in the second half, when the Falcons were relaxing a bit. However let in the fourth quarter, in between offensive series, with what has been reported as a shoulder injury. An MRI came back negative on Monday, and Cobb is considered day to day.
2017 Week 1 vs SEA (13 / 9 / 85 / 0 rec)
Things got off to a better start for Cobb this year, as he was targeted almost as much in the first game as he maxed out with in any one game last year. He caught most of them too, so perhaps he has put a train-wreck of a 2016 behind him. Cobb looked confident and sharp throughout the game and was absolutely Aaron Rodgers' favorite target of the day. Head coach Mike McCarthy told everyone in preseason that he wanted Cobb to see the ball more, and it is very clear he meant it.
