Cobb caught six passes for 60 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons before exiting in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury. According to ESPN.com, Cobb "thinks (he) will be all right, though."

EDGE Analysis

Cobb said following Sunday's game that he tweaked his shoulder in the first quarter, but he was able to play through the setback until the fourth quarter, when he ultimately left the contest with the Packers' chances of winning slim. The severity of his injury will be uncertain until an official update is released by the team, but Cobb's optimism at least provides reason for fantasy owners to feel the same way.

Cobb (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers' receiving corps took a beating Sunday, as Cobb's teammate, Jordy Nelson, had previously exited the game with a quad issue. The severity of either's injury isn't certain, but more information should be made available in the following days.

Cobb caught nine of 13 targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Seahawks

EDGE Analysis

Cobb had three catches on the opening drive and ended up leading the Packers in receptions, targets and receiving yards. There was some speculation his snap count could take a hit due to the Packers' improved depth at tight end, but Cobb ended up playing 63 of 82 offensive snaps (77 percent), while No. 2 tight end Lance Kendricks only logged 21, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports. Cobb did get a bit less playing time than top outside receivers Jordy Nelson (74 snaps) and Davante Adams (67). The Packers head to Atlanta in Week 2 for a rematch of the NFC championship game.

Cobb is listed as a starting wide receiver for the Packers heading into Week 1.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb is generally considered the Packers' third best fantasy option at his position, but he remains a starter on the depth chart and figures to see plenty of snaps when healthy. Touchdowns could be hard for him to come by, however, as he found paydirt just 10 times over his last 29 games after doing so 10 times over the final 10 weeks alone in 2014.

Cobb brought in both of his targets for nine yards in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb saw action on the Packers' successful 15-yard, 75-opening drive, doubling his reception total from the preseason opener. The slot man extraordinaire is looking to bounce back after an injury-riddled and sub-par 2016, and the team has announced its intentions to refocus on getting him the ball more often. He and the rest of his teammates on the starting offense should see a healthy amount of snaps in next Saturday's preseason contest against the Broncos.

Cobb caught one pass for one yard in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb played just 10 snaps Thursday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, so his chances to contribute were minimal. The Packers' main goal for Cobb during the preseason is undoubtedly to keep him healthy for Week 1.

Cobb is focused on ensuring he remains healthy during the upcoming campaign, Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb missed three games last season due mostly to hamstring and ankle problems, limiting him to just 60 catches for 610 yards and four scores. Although he returned to excel in Green Bay's playoff run, Cobb knows his availability will be vital to getting back on track this season, which is the second last of his current contract with the Packers. Along with focusing on boosting his numbers in the passing game, Cobb is also competing for Green Bay's punt returner job, a role he excelled in during first couple seasons in the league.

Wide receivers coach Luke Getsy said the Packers need to get the ball in Cobb's hands more often, Packers.com reports. "You saw [Cobb] in those playoff games, and he wasn't even totally healthy, and you saw how impactful he was," said Getsy. "That's why we say we have to get him the ball. He's going to do it again. He missed a few games with injuries, but the way he played last year down the stretch was incredible."

EDGE Analysis

Cobb dealt with injuries to his back, neck, hamstring and ankle last season, missing three games and appearing limited in others. He posted the second-worst mark of his career in yards per target (7.3), though it still represented an uptick from 2015 (6.4) when he played all 16 games but was bothered by a shoulder sprain. Cobb turns 27 in August and still has every chance to re-emerge as one of Aaron Rodgers' preferred weapons, but if the slot receiver doesn't get off to a strong start, he could find himself as no more than the fourth or fifth option in a passing game that can also lean on Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, TE Martellus Bennett and RB Ty Montgomery. Given the size of his contract, Cobb could be released after the season if he doesn't regain and sustain something close to his peak 2012-2014 form. Cobb did flash that potential at the end of last season, catching 18 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns on 24 targets in three playoff games.

Cobb caught six passes (on nine targets) for 82 yards in Sunday's NFC championship loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
