Cobb caught six passes (on nine targets) for 82 yards in Sunday's NFC championship loss to the Falcons. Cobb, who was Green Bay's only fully healthy starting wideout, led the team in receiving yards Sunday, finishing the playoffs with an impressive 18/260/3 stat line from three appearances. That production came after Cobb missed three regular season games due to hamstring and ankle problems, which limited him to just 60 receptions on 84 targets for 610 yards and four touchdowns. Besides his six-game, injury-shortened 2013 campaign, those numbers marked Cobb's worst season since his rookie year. Along the way, Davante Adams passed Cobb as the Packers' No. 2 wideout behind Jordy Nelson. While the potency of the team's passing game leaves plenty of opportunities for Cobb to make an impact, he'll enter next season coming off a down year that saw his fantasy stock slide.
Cobb secured seven of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 34-31 divisional-round win over the Cowboys. Cobb was an effective cog in a diversified passing game for the Packers on Sunday, one that saw six different players notch receptions. While he didn't quite replicate the spectacular 116-yard, three-touchdown effort he supplied in the wild-card victory over the Giants, Cobb did help make up for the absence of Jordy Nelson (ribs) with his highest amount of receptions since Week 7. He's now notched 12 catches on 15 targets for 180 yards and the aforementioned trio of scores over the first two postseason games.
Cobb caught five of seven targets for 116 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-13 win over the Giants. Cobb got going with a 42-yard Hail Mary touchdown to end the first half, and he added scores from 30 and 16 yards after the break to help his team to a comfortable victory. Most of his production notably came after Jordy Nelson was lost to injury, but Cobb had no trouble stepping into a larger role and finished just behind Davante Adams for the team lead in receiving. Cobb drew heaps of praise from Aaron Rodgers after the game and appears set to produce next week against the Cowboys -- especially if Nelson is forced to miss out.
Cobb (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Giants. Cobb returns to the mix following a two-game absence to close the regular season and is thus set to reclaim a portion of the Packers' slot wideout duties, with the workload of Geronimo Allison potentially taking something of a hit Sunday, as a result.
Cobb (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game versus the Giants, but he is expected to play, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Cobb missed the Packers' final two regular season games due to an ankle problem, but in returning as a limited participant during practice this week, he should be back available Sunday. While Cobb rejoining in the fold would certainly provide a boost to the Packers offense, undrafted rookie Geronimo Allison's impressive performance in Cobb's absence makes Green Bay's division of No. 3 wideout snaps an interesting item to monitor Sunday.
