Despite early reluctance by the coaching staff to expose Cobb to injury, he rose to the top of the punt returner depth chart for the Packers at the start of the season. Micah Hyde is beginning to steal returns away from Cobb, however.

Week 16: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Aaron Rodgers went to Buffalo and laid an egg, with 17/42 for 185 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown (one sack taken for -10 yards). It was an atypical outing for Rodgers, Jordy Nelson (12 targets for 5/55/0 receiving) and Randall Cobb (13 for 7/96/0), and disappointed fantasy owners during a key week. However, things are looking up this week. Tampa Bay averages 250.4 net passing yards allowed per game (24th in the NFL) with a whopping 26 passing scores given up, vs. 11 interceptions (tied-19th in the NFL) and 33 sacks (tied-16th). Most recently, Derek Anderson hit this group for 25/40 yielding 269 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown. This is a great week to look for a big bounce back from Rodgers and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs NE (11 / 7 / 85 / 0 rec, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)

The New England Patriots were happy to put guys like Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner on Cobb, so the Packers got creative after a few early miscues. They did things like line Cobb up in the backfield, then run him out on a passing route. This got them matchups like Cobb on defensive end Rob Ninkovich. On that play, Cobb swung out on a route and ran down the sideline. Ninkovich just couldn't keep up and when Aaron Rodgers delivered the ball, the lineman stumbled and fell down. Cobb gained some extra yards before safety Devin McCourty brought him down. That 33 yard gain was Cobb's longest of the day and the rest of his catches were more dink and dunk type, as the offense tried to get him the ball in space or in better matchups, like the one against Ninkovich. The Patriots did a solid job of bottling Cobb up after a catch and limiting his day overall.

2014 Week 14 vs ATL (5 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

With Jordy Nelson so successful on the outside, it was quiet day of slot duty for Randall Cobb. While he had no problems getting separation or making catches, Nelson was open for bigger plays and quarterback Aaron Rodgers locked onto him. For as few targets as he got, Cobb was very successful with them. He did a good job on several catches gaining extra yards after the catch and making a few catches which extended drives when the pressure was on. His 13-yard catch on a 3rd and 9 in the fourth quarter gave the Packers a first down and helped set up Jordy Nelson's game-clinching 60-yard touchdown.

2014 Week 15 vs BUF (13 / 7 / 96 / 0 rec, 3 / 15 / 0 rush)

Cobb nearly had a touchdown on a slant route early in the second quarter, but fell just short. On the play, Cobb ran about 10 yards, and then slanted in. As soon as he took that step in, Aaron Rodgers hit him with the pass. There were multiple defenders there though, and they brought him down short of the goal line. Later on, Cobb had the ball go off his hands on an easy catch and it was nearly picked off. Cobb was the target on another pass which was picked off by safety Bacarri Rambo in the third quarter. On the play, Cobb was cutting into the middle of the field when Rambo undercut him and intercepted the ball. There was nothing Cobb could do to prevent the interception. In the second half, the team shifted Cobb into the backfield a few times, sometimes to carry the ball and sometimes to run a route out of the backfield. Both had some success, as did the effort to get the ball in Cobb's hands early and then let him gain extra yards. Eventually Buffalo figured it out though, and the plays were shut down.

Packers | GB struggled with physical play (Mon Dec 15, 05:54 PM) - The Green Bay Packers were beaten by the Buffalo Bills in Week 15, and the Bills excelled by playing physical with the Packers receivers and disrupting the routes of WRs Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. The Bills had just one sack on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and three hits, but the lack of blitzing allowed Buffalo's corners to play more aggressively on the outside. 'They were physical outside with our receivers and were able to get away with it all day,' Rodgers said. 'We had some chances, missed on them.'
