Cobb caught 10-of-13 targets for 129 yards in Sunday's 53-20 win over the Eagles.
While Cobb had his six-game touchdown streak snapped, he posted a season high in all receiving categories. Amazingly, it was just the second game all season in which he didn't reach the end zone. He'll look to start another touchdown streak next week at Minnesota.

Cobb caught 4-of-6 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 55-14 win over the Bears.
Cobb appeared to be in danger of missing out on the fun, as three long second-quarter touchdowns from Jordy Nelson (twice) and Eddie Lacy helped the Packers to an early 35-0 lead. Cobb then made good on what seemed like it could be his final chance, making a diving catch for an 18-yard touchdown to put the Packers up 42-0 just 14 seconds before halftime. Cobb would actually get another two targets in the third quarter before the Packers pulled all their starters. One week after Davante Adams surprisingly led Green Bay in targets, Cobb matched Nelson and Lacy with a team-high six. With a favorable matchup waiting next week against the Eagles, both Cobb and Nelson are good bets to produce big games.

Cobb caught 5-of-7 targets for 126 yards and his ninth touchdown of the season in Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Saints.
Cobb actually had a pretty quiet night after hauling in a 70-yard touchdown on the Packers' first drive. Oddly enough, Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams were tied with a team-high nine targets apiece, while Cobb (seven) and Jordy Nelson (five) combined for just 12. We wouldn't read much into that, as Cobb and Nelson have far and away been Aaron Rodgers' favorite options this season. Cobb is actually averaging a modest 6.8 targets per game, but that's easily good for second on the Packers, and he has produced more than 10 yards per target while turning one out of every six into a touchdown. Though the latter is obviously unsustainable, Cobb could easily benefit from increased volume in the second half of the season, which would compensate for the inevitable touchdown regression.

Cobb had six catches for a game-high 121 receiving yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
We keep waiting for Cobb's seemingly unsustainable touchdown pace to cool off, but it hasn't. He has seven scores in seven games, and with quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing near-perfect football, maybe Cobb's touchdown prowess will continue all season. The red-hot Packers seem poised for another good offensive output next week on the fast track Superdome turf against the struggling Saints.

Cobb had five catches for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 win over Miami. He was targeted seven times.
Aside from his one big game against Chicago, Cobb's yardage totals have been fairly mediocre this year, but he remains one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite red-zone targets and now has seven touchdowns through six games.

Cobb caught 2-of-3 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 42-10 win over the Vikings.
No Packer had more than three targets, as Aaron Rodgers attempted just 17 passes before being pulled at the end of the third quarter. Despite the unusual circumstances, Cobb managed to secure his sixth receiving touchdown of the season, breaking what had been a four-way tie at five for first place. Cobb's having an unusual season, with his touchdown production far beyond what was expected, even though he's only caught 23 passes through five games. The inevitable touchdown regression will likely be offset � at least to some degree � by more receptions and yards.

Cobb caught three passes for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Cobb put up useful fantasy numbers over the season's first two weeks thanks to three trips to the end zone, but he provided almost nothing for fantasy owners in Week 3. He will look to get back on track in Week 4 against a Bears team that he beat for two touchdowns -- including a division-winning score -- in Week 17 last season.

Cobb made five catches (six targets) for 39 yards with a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets.
Cobb was third on the team in receiving, but his two scores made up for it. On a negative note for fantasy owners, Jordy Nelson went off Sunday, catching nine passes on 16 targets for 209 yards. Given Green Bay's strong passing attack, it's not a concern though, as both Cobb and Nelson can coexist.

Cobb had six receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Thursday's season opener against the Seahawks.
Cobb and Jordy Nelson didn't see much of Richard Sherman, as the Packers mostly sent Jarret Boykin out to the right side to occupy the superstar corner's area of the field. While able to avoid the toughest matchup, Cobb and Nelson still had to contend with an otherwise stellar secondary while Aaron Rodgers was bothered by the pass rush for much of the night. Cobb appears to have put a slow preseason behind him, and his toughest matchup is out of the way with a decent stat line to show for it. He's clearly one of the top two receiving options in what figures to be one of the league's most prolific offenses.

Cobb is still being considered for the Packers' punt-return job, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Packers would probably prefer to avoid using Cobb on punt returns so as not to expose him to unnecessary big hits, but it looks like it will be either him or Micah Hyde receiving punts come Week 1. What is not in doubt: Cobb is locked into the starting wide receiver spot opposite Jordy Nelson.
