Packers WR Randall Cobb (core muscle surgery) was activated from IR.
His return matters with Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) doubtful for Saturday. Expect Cobb to run his routes closer to the line of scrimmage in his return with Allen Lazard stretching the field more in the MVS role.
GB WR Randall Cobb - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 at Arizona Cardinals
Green Bay Packers slot receiver Randall Cobb has just one game this year with more than 5.0 half-PPR fantasy points, and that came in a 21.4-point Week 4 explosion where Cobb saw six targets (a season-high) and caught two touchdowns. We should temper expectations for the veteran, but as the de facto top wideout on the roster with both Davante Adams and Allen Lazard out due to COVID protocols, Cobb is in a great spot to surprise in Week 8. Even with the workload potential, our models project Cobb as fantasy's WR43 this week due to the Arizona Cardinals ranking 13th-lowest in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to wide receivers.
