Related players: Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis

Fantasy Impact:

Randall Cobb is the only healthy receiver of the Packers' top four wideouts. Nelson, Adams and Allison will be game-time decisions for a likely shootout against the Falcons.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Cobb is coming off of a stellar 5-116-3 (7) effort against the Giants in the Wildcard Round. With Jordy Nelson out, he should see plenty of quality targets from Aaron Rodgers.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19. With Nelson out, Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps. In the two previous games, with Randall Cobb sidelined, Allison played 73% and 81% of the snaps, posting 4-66 (on seven targets) against the Vikings and 4-91-1 (on six targets) against the Lions.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 18. Cobb may play but he’s not much of a fantasy option at this point. He has averaged just 32 yards receiving (and 0.28 TD) in his last seven games. Geronimo Allison has eight catches for 157 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets over the last two games. These two may split the team’s WR3 snaps on Sunday.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 17. Cobb is trying to make his return in a crucial game against the Lions. If he plays, he isn’t close to the fantasy option that he was earlier in his career. If he sits, Geronimo Allison should see starter-type snaps again this week. He played 73% of the snaps last week against the Vikings en route to four catches for 66 yards on seven targets.

Friday, December 23, 2016, 5:51pm

Packer moves could signify return of TE Jared Cook

Saturday, November 19, 2016, 9:43pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Carl Bradford from their practice squad and released tight end Justin Perillo, a move that signals the likely return of starting tight end Jared Cook.

The 6-foot-4 Cook has been out since Week 3 with an ankle injury.

Cook could give quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big target sorely needed over the middle help open up the field for receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Without Perillo, Richard Rodgers is the only other tight end on the Packers' active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Cook (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Cook may be able to return this week as the story indicated. Richard Rodgers has not played well in his absence, so Cook will be given every opportunity to win the job outright.

Friday, November 18, 2016, 6:41pm

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) took limited practice reps all week. Cobb played through the injury last week and should do so again.
