Cobb had 11 catches on 14 targets for 131 yards Sunday against the Bucs.
Cobb led the Packers in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though quarterback Aaron Rodgers' lone touchdown went to Jordy Nelson. Cobb hit the 100-yard mark for the fifth time this season, and first since Week 11 against the Eagles. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win Sunday, and they'll face off against the Lions in Week 17 to determine the winner of the NFC North, which means Cobb should get his full workload. However, the Lions boast one of the best defenses in the NFL, and they held Cobb to just three catches for 29 yards back in Week 3.

Cobb had seven catches on 13 targets for 96 yards Sunday against the Bills.
Cobb led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though Jordy Nelson had a shot to overtake him on the latter two, but he dropped a sure 94-yard touchdown late in the game. The Packers return home in Week 16 to take on a Buccaneers defense allowing the ninth-most passing yards per game this season, while only four teams have allowed more passing touchdowns, which should keep Cobb high in the wideout rankings.

Cobb caught 4-of-5 targets for 58 yards in Monday's 43-37 win over the Falcons.
Cobb was efficient on the chances he got, but the targets were dominated by Jordy Nelson (10) and Eddie Lacy (nine). While Cobb did get another touch on an end-around in the red zone, he was stopped for a loss of one yard on the play. He's now gone four straight games without a touchdown, after scoring 10 through Green Bay's first nine games. The torrid pace from earlier this season never figured to continue, but Cobb is still a decent bet to reach the end zone each week, despite the recent results. The Packers will face a tough Bills defense in Buffalo on Sunday.

Cobb had seven catches on 11 targets for 85 yards and ran twice for eight yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Patriots.
Cobb took somewhat of a backseat to rookie WR Davante Adams, who caught 6-of-11 targets for a career-high 121 yards. Even still, Cobb played an important role in the win, making a couple of nice third-down catches, including a huge seven-yard grab in the final two minutes to seal the win for Green Bay. He'll get a favorable matchup in Week 14, taking on a suspect Falcons' secondary.

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.
