Green Bay Packers
Equanimeous St. Brown
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb (groin) was unable to practice on Wednesday. Fellow wideout Malik Taylor (abdomen) was limited. Missing practice coming off a bye week usually isn't a great signs, so we'll have to keep an eye on the 31-year-old after he suffered a groin injury in the Week 12 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Cobb is coming off his best game of the season, catching four of five targets for 95 yards and his fifth touchdown of the season. He has some chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the red zone but has the tendency to disappear for long stretches. If he cannot play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard would see some more targets as boom/bust flex options in deeper leagues.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb (groin) won't return to Sunday's matchup against the Rams. The 31-year-old veteran was having his best game of the year, as he had four catches for 95 yards and a touchdown before succumbing to the injury. Nonetheless, there's likely to be an update on his status coming soon. However, considering his age, there's a chance he will remain on the injury report ahead of the Week 14 matchup against the Bears, which will come after the team's upcoming bye.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was the team's de facto top target in last Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals when Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were ruled out in Week 8. He brought in three of five targets for 15 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 24-21 win over the Cardinals. The Packers will be without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was ruled out in Week 9 after testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. Cobb salvaged his fantasy day with two scores but was targeted five times last Thursday and owns only 10% of the team's target share in 2021, 95th among all wide receivers. The veteran is a dart throw in deep-league formats at best without Rodgers and the impending returns of Lazard and Adams in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is suddenly QB Aaron Rodgers' top target with Davante Adams and Allen Lazard being ruled out for Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Adams and Lazard were both placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. Cobb is the most familiar name left for Rodgers to target and has caught 14 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns over seven games in 2021. The 31-year-old should see an uptick in target share while Lazard and Adams are out but averages just 2.9 yards after the catch per game. Cobb is considered a flex play and is a boom-or-bust WR4 in Thursday's showdown against the Cardinals.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will look to bounce back in Week 7 against the Washington Football Team after being shut out in last Sunday's 24-14 victory over the Chicago Bears. He has hauled in 11-of-14 targets for 157 yards and two touchdowns over six games in 2021. Washington's defense rank 31st in DVOA against the opposing team's WR2s and has given up the most yards through the air this season. The 31-year-old owns 8% of the team's target shares and averages 10.6 air yards per target. Cobb is in a prime bounce-back spot and is a sneaky flex play in deep-league formats with the plus matchup in Week 7.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will try to bounce back in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears after reeling in 2-of-3 targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 25-22 overtime win against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 31-year-old averages 10.6 air yards per target and owns 9% of the team's target share, ranked 92nd among all wideouts. Cobb will continue to have an expanded role while Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) remains on the injured reserve. This season, the Bears have been obliterated by WR1s (30th in DVOA) but have been solid against the opposing team's WR2s, which ranks 10th in DVOA versus the opponent's secondary receiver. Cobb is considered a flex play in deep-league formats and is a dart throw at best in Week 6.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is coming off his best game this season after reeling in five receptions for 69 yards and two touchdowns in last Sunday's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 31-year-old led the Packers in receiving and should see an expanded role for the next few weeks while Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) remains on the injured reserve. Cobb averages 10.7 air yards per target and owns 11% of the team target shares over four games in 2021. Cobb (who played with Green Bay from 2011-2018) and QB Aaron Rodgers are rekindling their connection, making the Packers wideout a sneaky flex play in Sunday's game against the Bengals. The Cincinnati defense is 21st in DVOA against WR2s and allows 229.5 passing yards per game. Fantasy managers in deep-league formats can use Cobb as a streamer in Week 5.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb had a coming-out party in the Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Entering the game, the veteran slot receiver had just four catches for 58 yards in three games, including no targets in last Sunday night's game. Against Pittsburgh, Cobb had five receptions for 69 yards and two touchdowns. Cobb was given a crash course on the offense by quarterback Aaron Rodgers when the team first traded for him. The two had plenty of experience together from 2011-18, and four of Cobb's five catches on Sunday came on third down. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is now on Injured Reserve, and opponents will likely continue to double-team Davante Adams, which will open up more opportunities for Cobb. It looks like Cobb and Rodgers are rekindling their old connection with Cobb more up to speed on the playbook. Many fantasy managers dropped Cobb after his zero-target Week 3, but it might be time to pick him up already with MVS out for at least three weeks.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb caught five passes for a team-high 69 yards with two touchdowns in the team's 27-17 win over the Steelers. Cobb was dangerous in the red zone, connecting on crossing routes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers for two scores. Cobb's season has gotten off to a slow start but he is beginning to show why Rodgers wanted him back in Green Bay heading into the season. Cobb's fantasy value will be on the rise as the calendar turns towards Week 5.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has played just 27 of the team's 122 offensive snaps (22.13 percent) through the first two weeks of the season. Head coach Matt LaFleur said he's "got to do a better job of trying to get" Cobb more plays while calling him "an important part of our football team" and someone he would like to get "a little bit more involved." The veteran wideout has just four catches for 58 yards, but he did haul in three passes for 26 yards in the Monday night win over the Detroit Lions. It sounds as though Cobb's snaps should be going up soon, but until that actually leads to more production, he won't be trustworthy in starting fantasy lineups. Davante Adams is the only weekly starting wideout in Green Bay's offense right now.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will face a 49ers defense that currently is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. Cobb has been targeted only four times through the first two games and has three receptions for 58 yards. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has found Cobb for some productive plays but the receivers lack of targets should keep him off the fantasy radar for Week 3.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb caught three passes for 26 yards in the team's 35-17 triumph over the Lions. Cobb picked up a nice 14-yard reception but mostly played fourth fiddle behind teammates Devante Adams, Robert Tonyan and Aaron Jones. Cobb could have games where he flashes a solid fantasy stat line in spurts this season but will be very volatile on a week-to-week basis in the coming weeks.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has quickly gotten comfortable as a new member of the team that originally drafted him. Cobb was traded from the Texans back to the Packers and many reports indicate it was at the request of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Wide receivers coach Jason Vrable has been impressed, telling reporters, "The last two weeks he's grinded. I'm talking about work. He's the first one in and been studying the playbook with me an extra hour, and then doing special teams getting some more time, and then he would stay late and be with Aaron. So in about two weeks he's pretty much got caught up with the playbook." Cobb is only two years removed from posting 828 yards with three touchdowns for the Cowboys in 2019 and his reunion with Rodgers could rekindle his fantasy value in 2021.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is back with his old team and already is making plays in camp. The veteran receiver has made plays over the middle consistently during practice and was seen wide open down the field but failed to connect with backup quarterback Jordan Love. Cobb's numbers dipped in almost every category last season, catching only 38 passes for 441 yards and three touchdowns while also battling injuries. Cobb may not be the player he once was but could be rejuvenated in Green Bay catching passes from future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Houston Texans have traded wide receiver Randall Cobb to the Green Packers. According to Rapoport, the deal will be official when the Packers gain the cap room. Cobb posted on his personal Instagram account, "I'm coming home." The 30-year-old has an $8.25 million base salary this season. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reworking his contract with Green Bay and gets his old friend Randall Cobb back. Cobb hauled in 38 receptions on 48 targets for 441 yards and three touchdowns across 10 games for the Texans in 2020. The veteran wideout could have late-round fantasy value if he has anything left in the tank.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb has been the subject of trade rumors over the past few days, with multiple reports indicating that the Green Bay Packers want to reunite him with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Texans traded for slot receiver Anthony Miller this weekend, further fueling these rumors, and current teammate Brandin Cooks tweeted "@rcobb18 go back home and set it off" on Tuesday. Taken all together, it sounds like Cobb will be heading to Wisconsin, where he'd likely slide into the slot role and would be a nice late-round value, as long as you buy the idea that Cobb still has some juice left. As for Houston, Miller and Keke Coutee would vie for that slot role, with the winner presenting a modicum of late-round value, but without much upside.
The Houston Texans have a lot of new faces at wide receiver this season, but the battle for slot snaps is expected to be between two players who were on last year's team, with Randall Cobb and Keke Coutee competing for those minutes. Cobb was limited to 10 games last season because of injury, catching 38 passes for 441 yards and three touchdowns. Coutee, who'll be entering his last year under contract, has had an uneven Texans career, but being freed from head coach Bill O'Brien allowed him to get snaps at the end of the year, with Coutee finishing with 33 catches for 400 yards and three touchdowns. It's unclear who has the lead in this position battle at this point, but whoever wins out will have some sleeper appeal in full PPR leagues.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb (toe) is likely to miss the rest of the season, according to interim head coach Romeo Crennel. Cobb suffered a toe injury and was placed on injured reserve in Week 11, though it was initially thought that he'd have a chance to return to the field. That doesn't appear to be the case, which is unfortunate considering the Texans are already down Will Fuller V (suspension). Cobb will likely end the season with 38 catches for 441 yards and three touchdowns, a solid showing as Houston's number-three wideout. Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) has a good chance of returning in Week 15, leaving Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen as the other two starters.
Houston Texans wide receivers Kenny Stills (quadriceps) and Randall Cobb (toe) have both been ruled out for the Thanksgiving game on Thursday against the Lions and will not travel with the team. Cobb is dealing with a significant toe injury and will miss several more games. With both Stills and Cobb out this Thursday, Keke Coutee should be elevated to three-receiver sets alongside Will Fuller V and Brandin Cooks. Coutee has just four catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in two games played this year, but he'll be a deep DFS sleeper on Thanksgiving against a very generous Lions Defense. Tight ends Darren Fells and Jordan Akins could see more targets as well, but the main beneficiaries should be Fuller and Cooks.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb (toe) would not have been available to participate in Monday's practice had there been one. After leaving Sunday's win over New England due to a toe injury, Cobb is not trending in the right direction to return for Thursday's matchup with the Lions. Keke Coutee earned praises in the slot in place of Cobb, and would figure to continue seeing an increased usage with the veteran sidelined. The Lions Defense is allowing the fifth-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers this season, putting Coutee, Brandin Cooks, and Will Fuller V in line for increased usage should Cobb ultimately not make it back in time for the contest.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb suffered a toe injury on Sunday against the New England Patriots. While he's set to have tests on Monday to see how severe it is, the expectation appears to be that Cobb will miss multiple games. Keke Coutee saw four targets on Sunday and could wind up as the team's slot receiver with Cobb out. Coutee was out of the picture when Bill O'Brien was the head coach, but it appears the team's coaching change has breathed some life into him.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb (foot) caught both of his targets for seven receiving yards and a touchdown in a Week 11 win. Cobb got the scoring started in the first quarter with his touchdown reception from Deshaun Watson, though he had to leave the game after seemingly getting injured hauling in the score. If Cobb is to miss time, fellow receiver- and former waiver wire darling- Keke Coutee, who also caught a touchdown in this game, would be in line to see more work in the passing game. Stay tuned for an update on his status, which should come Monday, according to head coach Romeo Crennel.
Yikes. Two Houston Texans wide receivers Randall Cobb (foot) and Kenny Stills (leg) have been ruled out for the second half of Sunday's game against New England. Cobb caught two passes for seven yards and a touchdown. Stills did not have a reception. We should see more of Keke Coutee in the second half, who scored his first touchdown of the season in the second quarter.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Cobb currently has two catches for seven yards and a touchdown in the game. If he's unable to return, tight end Jordan Akins will likely see more of the short yardage usage, as could wide receiver Keke Coutee, who is active today.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb has a tough matchup on tap against the Patriots Defense in Week 11. Cobb has seen at least five targets in five contests this year, though he could be hard-pressed to reach that number against New England. Their defense has surrendered the second-fewest targets per game to wideouts. Teammates Will Fuller V and Brandin Cooks are likely to soak up any targets, leaving Cobb as a weak flex option for Week 11.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
