Cobb caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Vikings.
Cobb's production continued to decline, as he saw a season-low three targets and also finished with his fewest catches and yards in a game this year. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers' exit from Sunday's game with a broken collarbone certainly didn't help Cobb's cause, and Rodgers' extended absence won't help him get things on track moving forward. There figure to be some changes with Brett Hundley under center, though without Rodgers, the third receiver in the Packers passing attack is not as appealing, and Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams will be the top two options as long as they are healthy.
Cobb caught four passes for 29 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.
Since totaling 85 yards in Week 1 Cobb's yardage has ticked down each successive contest. His 218 receiving yards rank a respectable 54th in the league with one game to go in Week 5 and are just 12 fewer than what teammate Jordy Nelson has piled up, but while Nelson has six touchdowns on the year Cobb has found paydirt just once. Cobb has a steady role in one of the league's top passing attacks, but his fantasy value will continue to be capped while fellow wideouts Nelson and Davante Adams -- who has four scores himself -- see most of the scoring opportunities through the air.
Cobb (chest) brought in all four of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 35-14 win over the Bears.
Cobb's two-yard scoring grab -- his first of the season -- gave the Packers a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. While he was modestly involved the rest of the way, the 27-year-old did encouragingly take the field without restrictions after missing the Week 3 overtime victory against the Bengals with his chest injury. Through the three games he's played, Cobb has looked much more effective than at virtually any time during the second half of his injury-marred 2016, with his 19 receptions to date equaling the number he posted over five contests in Weeks 9-13 of last season. He'll look to play an integral part of the air attack in Week 5 road showdown against the Cowboys.
Cobb doesn't have a designation in advance of Thursday's game against the Bears, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Cobb's optimism translated to full practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, paving the way for his first appearance since Week 2 in Atlanta. In 11 career games versus the Bears, he's tallied seven touchdowns while averaging 56 receiving yards per outing.
Cobb (chest) said Tuesday that he's "optimistic" he'll play Thursday against the Bears, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.
After practicing on a limited basis Monday, Cobb was upgraded to a full participant Tuesday, signaling that he would be on track to play after a one-game absence. Cobb's comments only further support the idea that he'll be back in the fold Thursday, so unless he suffers some sort of setback during Wednesday's session, it looks as though he won't miss any further time. The likely return of Cobb would result in a downgrade in the fantasy stock of Geronimo Allison, who saw an appreciable bump in targets in last Sunday's win over the Bengals, reeling in six passes for 122 yards.
