News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 12): The whole Packers offense had a tough draw, but it's hard to believe Cobb isn't still bothered by his shoulder injury. Thankfully, the Packers bye is coming in Week 7, but this week against San Diego could be on the light side in the scoring column.

2015 Week 5 vs STL (6 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Cobb and Aaron Rodgers didn't seem to be on the same page Sunday, and the result was one of Cobb's poorer days this year. It started when Cobb went on a deep route and Rodgers, clearly thinking his receiver was going to stop and turn, threw the ball outside and behind him. Their next miss was a throw on a short out which Rodgers was too wide on, and then a long throw that overshot the mark while Cobb had a step on the defender. The two finally synced up and Cobb caught the next three targets he saw, though all of them were short passes. On the first one he threw a great move at the defender after the catch and totally juked him, gaining the first down as he did. It was a mediocre day, but it definitely showed that the offense can still function despite that, which is big for Packers fans.
2015 Week 4 vs SF (8 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
As is the case with running back Eddie Lacy, if Cobb's injury (shoulder) is bothering him, it's not obvious. Cobb appeared to be moving well, getting separation from coverage and finding the seams in the defense. The Packers are very creative in getting him his touches, lining him up anywhere on the field including in the backfield. Cobb was targeted eight times, catching five, most of which he did in stride and was able to gain a yard or two after the catch. Cobb is a dangerous player with the ball in his hands, though the San Francisco 49ers did a solid job containing him after the catch. So far, not having Jordy Nelson has not unduly impacted Cobb or his production and he is consistently a huge part of the offense.
2015 Week 3 vs KC (12 / 7 / 91 / 3 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Cobb was a huge part of the Packers offense in Monday's victory over the Chiefs. He was targeted 12 times in total, catching seven for 91 yards and three scores. All three of the touchdowns were short yardage situations in the red zone, which has to be taken as a very positive sign for Cobb's already high fantasy potential. The first touchdown occurred in the first quarter and was the culmination of a 10-play, 89-yard drive which Cobb finished off with a three-yard touchdown reception. Cobb tacked on two more touchdowns in the second half, both four-yard pass plays. He showed off his versatility a bit in the first half with an end-around play that netted 12 yards. Cobb's huge day could've been even bigger as he had a 17-yard touchdown nullified by penalty in the second quarter. All told, a stellar day for the top target in one of the league's best offenses.
2015 Week 2 vs SEA (11 / 8 / 116 / 0 rec)
Despite still nursing an injured shoulder, not having Jordy Nelson at all and losing Davante Adams for a stretch, Cobb continued to shrug off defenders and find open field for Aaron Rodgers to throw him the ball in all game long. While Cobb didn't score, he came close a few times, including late in the first half when he caught the ball and ran it down to the one yard line. Despite that, Cobb consistently found open space between the defenders and got himself open enough to where Rodgers didn't have any problems with getting Cobb the ball.
2015 Week 1 vs CHI (5 / 5 / 38 / 1 rec)
Cobb was still dealing with a shoulder issue, and was obviously not 100 percent. That said, he was the second most targeted on the team and caught all of the passes thrown his way. Cobbs touchdown came at the start of the fourth quarter on a wheel route. As Cobb ran, quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw the ball just in front of Cobb, away from the defender. The receiver easily caught the ball for the touchdown. Overall, while Cobb is still hurt, he was clearly a significant part of the gameplan and should be going forward as he gets healthier.
