Packers | Randall Cobb to part with Green Bay?

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 19:27:15 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, and have exclusive negotiating rights until Saturday, March 7, at 3pm, and exclusive signing rights until Tuesday, March 10. The team has been working to hammer out a deal with Cobb for six months. With WRs Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams under contract, the team did not feel the need to use a franchise tag on Cobb like the Dallas Cowboys did with WR Dez Bryant, and the Denver Broncos did with WR Demaryius Thomas. According to sources, the team said they would sign Cobb to a five-year deal averaging $8-9 million per season, and his agent said he feels confident they can get more on the open market.

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Cobb playing for another team in 2015, but it is possible the Packers could get him back into the fold if the offers aren't as lucrative as Cobb's agent expects. Either way, Cobb will be a top-flight fantasy option again next season.

Chiefs | KC might take run at Randall Cobb

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 19:24:47 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to make a run at Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb should he hit the open market.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs are in desperate need of a playmaker at wide receiver, something they have sorely lacked over the past couple of seasons. Alex Smith would thank them a thousand times over for a player of Cobb's caliber, although fantasy owners might not be as keen on Smith tossing balls to Cobb rather than Aaron Rodgers.

Jaguars | Randall Cobb likely to be courted by Jags

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 07:31:40 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is expected to be aggressively pursued by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cobb's agent Jimmy Sexton also represents Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley, and the team has $69.3 million to spend.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb would likely take a step back from his 91-1,287-12 feast in 2014 on a rebuilding team. He'd make a high-end WR2 without much upside in Jacksonville.

Raiders | Randall Cobb could see Raiders' attention

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 07:30:43 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is expected to be aggressively pursued by the Oakland Raiders, according to sources. The Raiders have $56.6 million to spend, and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie helped draft him four years ago.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is unlikely to repeat his 91-1,287-12 monster 2014 if he lands on a rebuilding team. He'd make a high-end WR2 without a lot of upside in Oakland. The presence of possession receiver James Jones could keep enough attention off of Cobb to allow him to remain a low-end WR1.

Packers | Randall Cobb unlikely to rejoin Packers

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 07:29:55 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to re-sign with the team, barring something unexpected. The Packers have attempted to sign Cobb for six months with little room for optimism. The Packers have tried to sign him to a five-year deal worth around $8-$9 million per year.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb had a monster season opposite of Jordy Nelson. Leaving will most likely hurt him, as his most aggressive suitors are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders. Can Cobb continue to perform at an elite level on an island by himself? It's possible, but he slips to a low-end WR1 or a high-end WR2 in a situation like this.

Packers | Trying to re-sign Randall Cobb

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 16:06:51 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, according to a pair of league sources. He is viewed as a core player that the team definitely wants to keep.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb posted 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and he will turn 25 in August. He still has room for improvement. Fantasy owners are likely hoping he stays with Aaron Rodgers, as they have jelled together nicely in Cobb's first four NFL seasons.

Packers | Randall Cobb deal not imminent

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 11:10:28 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb may not be re-signed in the near future, but a new deal still remains a top priority for the Packers, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb figures to be re-signed instead of hitting the free-agent market as he is coming off a career year in which he totaled 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. He'll remain in the WR1 conversation, especially in point-per-reception leagues, if/when he get re-signed.

Raiders | OAK may make run at Randall Cobb

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 04:24:10 -0800

Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) may be targeted by the Oakland Raiders if he reaches free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has recovered from injury issues that plagued him in 2013, but a move like this might hurt his fantasy value depending on if he goes to a team with a lower-quality quarterback. It's hard to imagine Green Bay letting him go, so stay tuned.

Packers | Randall Cobb delivered on promise

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 21:04:55 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said prior to the start of the 2014 season that he would prove that he deserved a contract extension, and he finished the season with career highs in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb established himself as one of Aaron Rodger's main targets and one of the most reliable fantasy receivers in the game. As long as he re-signs in Green Bay as expected, he should provide WR1 value in 2015.

Packers | Franchise tag unlikely for Randall Cobb

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 09:33:02 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to receive a franchise tag from the team, and instead the Packers will try to work out a long-term deal. Discussions on an extension could take place at the NFL Scouting Combine this weekend. Cobb is reportedly seeking a deal that averages $9 million per year.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb will probably have the most dangerous fantasy football value if he sticks with Green Bay in that high-powered offense, but even if he signs with another squad in free agency, he'll likely remain a WR1 in point-per-reception formats in 2015.
