Week 3: vs Cincinnati Bengals
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pass attack amassed 343 passing yards and two touchdowns last week. Rodgers got off to a very sluggish start last week with only 85 passing yards, an interception, and a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the first half. He picked it up in the second half though, especially in the fourth quarter once the game was already well out of hand--amassing 149 yards and both of his touchdowns during this garbage time. Rodgers spread the ball around all night as Davante Adams led the way with eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Martellus Bennet was Rodgers most targeted receiver, but only hauled in 5-of-11 targets for 47 yards. Randall Cobb has a solid showing but was forced to exit in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury. His status is looking positive for this week though. The big story for the Packers right now is Jordy Nelson's injured quadriceps, forcing him out of last week's game early in the first quarter before amassing a single catch. As of early in the week, it looks like Nelson's status for Week 3 is still up in the air. Cincinnati's defense has been statistically solid against the pass this season, allowing only six yards per pass attempt and 209 total passing yards. Although most of this can be attributed to the Bengals inept offense that made it easy for teams to protect their lead by rushing the ball, this defensive unit actually has actually played well on their limited opportunities to defend against the pass. From a pass-rushing perspective, the Bengals own a 9.8% sack rate--eight highest in the league. Geno Atkins has been solid on the interior of that line, applying consistent pressure on the quarterback--including six pressures and two sacks last week against the Texans. Cornerback is a weakness for the Bengals, but they have a solid safety over the top in Shawn Williams. The Packers offensive as a whole will by far be the Bengals toughest test of the season, as Aaron Rodgers is a mismatch for almost any defense.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
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.

DT Montravius Adams (foot), LB Ahmad Brooks (concussion) and OG Jahri Evans (groin) were full participants and are no longer on the injury report. link to story Packers | Randall Cobb doubtful for Week 3 (Fri Sep 22, 04:35 PM) - Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as doubtful against the Cincinnati Bengals. link to story Packers | Randall Cobb a game-time call (Fri Sep 22, 11:12 AM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) will be a game-time decision in Week 3. Our View: Geronimo Allison would get more snaps if Cobb is out and Martellus Bennett might get more targets in the middle of the field. This is an afternoon game, so make sure you have a late game/night game option to swap out for Cobb if you want to wait this out.
link to story Packers | Randall Cobb still sidelined (Thu Sep 21, 01:44 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) has yet to practice this week after not practicing Thursday, Sept. 21. Our View: Early reports indicated the chest injury was no big deal, but this seems to prove otherwise and every day which passes makes it less likely he will play, or worse, he will but not do anything. Worse, he could be a game time decision for a game which kicks off at 4:25pm EST. You may have to make that decision very early on, but we'll keep you up to date here on the wire and in Joe Bryant's newsletters.
link to story Packers | Randall Cobb does not practice (Wed Sep 20, 06:48 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20. Our View: Cobb is getting some rest on Wednesday but could practice later in the week and play on Sunday. Geronimo Allison would be the no3 wide receiver for the Packers if Cobb was unable to go against the Bengals.
