Cobb nabbed four of six targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 35-11 loss to Detroit. He added a four-yard run during the contest.
On fourth and five early in the fourth quarter, Cobb crossed over the middle, snagged a Brett Hundley pass, and cut up field for a 17-yard score -- Green Bay's first in two weeks. 2017 was another ho-hum year for Cobb, but he ended the season strong with two touchdowns in his last three games. It'll be interesting to see what Green Bay does with Cobb following its big contract with Davante Adams. Cobb carries a $12.75-million cap hit in 2018 and a $3.25 million dead-cap figure if he's cut following back-to-back seasons of less than 700 yards receiving.
Cobb caught four of seven targets for 22 yards Saturday against the Vikings. He also lost six yards on his lone carry of the 16-0 defeat.
With Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder) both out of commission, Cobb was the lone experienced wideout going for Green Bay. That did earn him some attention from Xavier Rhodes on the other side, however, and Brett Hundley's continued ineptitude under center contributed to this lackluster performance as well. Cobb could once again be the main man in the passing game next week against the Lions, but the state of the team's offense and a potential date with Darius Slay make him a risky fantasy play, at best.
It's likely that Adams' 8.3 targets per game will be divvied up among a committee of players including fellow starting wideouts Cobb and Jordy Nelson, but the fantasy ceilings of all the Packers' pass-catching options may remain limited nonetheless with Brett Hundley set to reclaim the starting role at quarterback in place of two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was moved back to injured reserve following a Week 15 cameo against the Panthers. When Rodgers exited in the first quarter of the Packers' previous matchup with the Vikings in Week 6 after fracturing his collarbone, Hundley struggled to move the offense in his first extended NFL action, completing 18 of 33 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Minnesota's strong pass defense could prompt Packers head coach Mike McCarthy to lean heavily on the ground game early on until a deficit forces Green Bay into catch-up mode.
Cobb brought in seven of 14 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Panthers.
Cobb was one of several Packers pass catchers to benefit from Aaron Rodgers' return to action from a broken collarbone, as he posted his best yardage total since the season opener against the Seahawks. The seven-year veteran saw a season-high target total as well, while his touchdown was his second in the last four games. With Rodgers back in the fold and apparently firing on all cylinders, Cobb could play a pivotal role in the passing attack once again when the Packers face off with the Vikings in Week 16.
Cobb caught all eight of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.
After going without a target the previous week, Cobb finished second to only Davante Adams (14) on Sunday but was forced to settle for short gains besides one 16-yard pickup. Yet to top 60 yards with Brett Hundley under center, Cobb would get a boost if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) were to return for Week 15 in Carolina. Cobb averaged 5.8 catches for 54.5 yards on 7.8 targets in the four games they played together earlier this year.
