Randall Cobb said he's not overly concerned about his ankle. "We're just managing the soreness right now but it's not a big (concern)," he said walking out of the locker room following the Packers' night practice.

Our injury expert and certified sports physical therapist Russell Manalastas notes this about Cobb's ankle: "Cobb was seen wearing a boot in the early parts of camp with reports stating that he had ankle surgery to remove some cartilage that may have been impeding on the ankle. Cobb remains in good position to take on a larger target share with Jordy Nelson gone, but his health is the big question when deciding whether or not you want to take a chance on him in the middle rounds." An ankle issue has popped up again and needs to be monitored moving forward to make a sound fantasy decision on him in redraft leagues. The upside is huge if healthy.

Randall Cobb is now Aaron Rodgers' most tenured receiver with Jordy Nelson out of the picture. And now that Nelson is gone, Cobb could see 100 targets again for the first time since 2015.
Cobb hasn't been a huge fantasy factor the past two seasons since Davante Adams emerged as a secondary target. That might not change this season with Jimmy Graham now on board. It also seems that Cobb's 12-TD season in 2014 was an aberration. He has eight TDs in the past two seasons.
2018 Bottom Line
Cobb's current ADP has him going in rounds 8-10, which sounds about right. He's going to perform like a WR3 this season depending on the matchup, even with Rodgers throwing him the ball. Maybe he gets to 100 targets this season, but he's basically a poor man's Jarvis Landry at this point in his career. That's not a bad thing. He still has value. But he hasn't averaged more than 10.5 yards per catch in any of the past three seasons.
