Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 17 vs DET (5 / 1 / 27 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught one pass for 27 yards on five targets against the Lions on Sunday. Cobb had an opportunity with Adams on the sidelines to show what he could with an extended volume of snaps, but the Packers offense was never able to piece together any meaningful drives. Cobb's time in Green Bay is quickly coming to a close, and with the Packers picking three wide receivers in last years draft and a new head coach on the way, it is a good bet that Cobb will be playing elsewhere in 2019.
2018 Week 15 vs CHI (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught three passes for 30 yards on seven targets in the Packers loss to the Bears on Sunday. Cobb continues to be the Packers second most targeted wide receiver, but Cobb has yet to really capitalize on those targets. This game was no different as Cobb had an especially bad drop that could have padded his stats a bit more, but he was also overthrown on a deep ball that would have completely changed his statistical outcome for the game. Cobb is a hard fantasy asset to peg after a game like this, as he could have easily had five catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. Cobb's seven targets were second on the Packers and he played on the majority of the snaps before getting hit and sustaining a concussion in the fourth quarter. Cobb has entered the NFL's concussion protocol and with the Packers having three rookie wide receivers pining to play, it will come as no surprise if they choose to shut him down for the rest of the season.
2018 Week 14 vs ATL (6 / 5 / 43 / 1 rec)
Randall Cobb caught five passes for 43 yards and a touchdown on six targets in the Packers win over the Falcons on Sunday. This was Cobb's best performance since his week 1, as Cobb had the most receptions, yards and touchdowns since his monster 9/142/1 line in the Packers first game of the season. Cobb got the start, and it with this performance looks to have reclaimed the #2 spot for the Packers moving forward. Cobb's touchdown catch came with the Packers driving at the Rodgers next touchdown pass came on third and ten from the Falcons 24 yard line, with the Packers up 20-7 and driving to the start the third quarter. Rodgers lined up in the shotgun with Randall Cobb lined up out wide to his left. Rodgers took the snap, dropped back in the pocket, then stepped up in the pocket and fired a line drive to Cobb, who was running a straight go-route. It was a phenomenal throw from Rodgers, as Cobb caught the ball exactly in-stride a yard deep in the end zone. Cobb made a nice catch on the ball, and it was the type of play that the Packers have been missing with team's keying on Adams and in desperate need of a consistent #2 receiver who clicks with Rodgers.
2018 Week 13 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught three passes on five targets for 25 yards in the Packers loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. It was Cobb's first game back since getting injured in week nine, and he has now found himself in a timeshare with Valdes-Scantling (the preferred #2 option) and Equanimeous St.Brown. Cobb's day could have been a bit better, but he had a 24 yard catch negated by a holding penalty in the 2nd half. Outside of Davante Adams, no receiver in the Green Bay offense can be trusted on a week to week basis, and it really comes down to whomever is going to break that one big play. The Packers offense is no longer the juggernaut that we have seen in years past, so Cobb can be left on the waiver-wire as we head into the fantasy playoffs.
2018 Week 9 vs NE (6 / 5 / 24 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught five passes for 24 yards on six targets in the Packers loss to the Patriots on Sunday. It looked as though Cobb was going to be featured a lot to start the game, with Rodgers looking his way early on, however as the game progressed, Cobb became less and less involved. It is not hard to see why though. With the exception of his big catch to win the game in week one, Cobb has either been injured, or not able to make much of a difference when given chances to make plays after the catch. With the Packers needing more big plays out of their receivers, it looks as though McCarthy is going to stick with Valdes-Scantling and Geranimo Allison (when he returns from injury).
2018 Week 8 vs LAR (5 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Cobb was mostly used on wide receiver screens and was blanketed on his backshoulder downfield target. He's not as dangerous after the catch any longer and isn't the clear #2 or #3 receiver now that he's back from injury.
2018 Week 3 vs WAS (11 / 4 / 23 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught four passes for 23 yards on 11 targets in the Packers week three loss to the Redskins. This was a bad game for Cobb, as not only did he have a catch rate of 36%, he also committed two egregious drops on third down in the first half, and on fourth down in the second half. Both were critical plays with the Packers trying to gain momentum and get back in the game. Still, it was his fumble in the 4th quarter that ended the game that was probably his worst play. It was a weak play that Allison, Adams or Graham would not have fumbled, and it ended what could have been one Cobb's worst games as a professional.
2018 Week 2 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)
Randall Cobb caught four passes for 30 yards on six targets against the Vikings on Sunday. As opposed to week one where he was the primary target for Rodgers, Cobb had a very quiet day. He caught passes of 14 yards, three yards, four yards and nine yards. Cobb was targeted deep down the field on two of his other targets but failed to come up with the catches, including one that went for an interception that was luckily overturned due to other off-setting penalties. In addition, Cobb also muffed a punt that he was able to recover before the Vikings were right there on top of him. All in all, not a banner day for Cobb.
2018 Week 1 vs CHI (10 / 9 / 142 / 1 rec)
Randall Cobb caught nine passes for 142 yards and the game winning touchdown against the Bears on Sunday night. Cobb caught nine of 11 targets and did most of his work in the short passing game, although he did have a 29 yard catch prior to his 75 yard touchdown. Cobb only has one 1,000 yard season on his resume, in 2014, but it seems that fantasy managers have been talking about him breaking out every year since then. With Jordy Nelson now in Oakland, Cobb looks like he is poised for another big season. Cobb's 75 yard game winning touchdown came deep in the 4th quarter with the Packers down six points. Cobb ran a shallow in-route, and had the presence of mind to sit his route down in the middle of the field as Aaron Rodgers worked to escape pressure in the pocket. Rodgers hit Cobb 12 yards down the field, and Cobb turned around to find no Chicago defender within ten yards of him. Cobb took off up the middle of the field before breaking outside to the right sideline. He then cut it back to the middle of the field at the Bears 10 yard line to escape a Chicago defender and waltzed into the end zone without so much as a tap by a Bears defender until a last gasp effort at the one yard line. The play was a major blunder for the Bears, but Cobb deserves the credit for keeping himself in the play and allowing Rodgers to find him open in the middle of the field.
Latest NewsSaints | New Orleans to sign slot receiver? (Sat Feb 9, 02:10 AM) - The New Orleans Saints could try to sign a free-agent wide receiver to play the slot next season, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett, who names Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries as possible targets in free agency. Our View: The Saints will be looking for more talent at the wide receiver position. That could come through free agency with one of the players mentioned above. Michael Thomas is a stud, and Tre'Quan Smith has intriguing upside...and oh yeah, Ted Ginn can still be a deep threat. That's a nice trio but we're expecting the Saints to add more competition to the WR corps.
link to story Packers | Green Bay could move on from Randall Cobb (Thu Feb 7, 01:51 AM) - Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb should not be re-signed, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who believes Cobb's size and injury history are reasons the team should move on. Our View: No shocker here. Cobb only played in nine games this year for the Packers, snaring only 38 catches (his lowest since 2013). The Packers selected three wide receivers last year in the draft (Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St.Brown, J′Mon Moore) who should play a larger role in 2019. Cobb will likely land with a new team in search of veteran depth.
