Thursday update: Cobb has been officially activated from injured reserve and will play against the 49ers on Saturday.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will return to the lineup for their Divisional round game against the 49ers this weekend, per Ian Rapoport. Cobb had core muscle surgery seven weeks ago and is ready to get back on the field according to head coach Matt Lefleur.

Cobb has played well this season and had some breakout games, including two games with two touchdowns. He also has some duds in there, as Davante Adams will always be a target vacuum. Allen Lazard has been playing well with Cobb out and Marquez Valdes-Scantling is back from injury as well. Knowing who will see the biggest share outside of Adams is tough.

Fantasy football implications

Cobb can be a good target for his friend Aaron Rodgers, but it is always hard to know how targets will be distributed after Adams gets his. Cobb has a great rapport with Rodgers though, and using him in some DFS lineups is probably a good idea.
