Randall Cobb expected to be fine for fantasy owners in Week 17

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) should be fine to play in Week 17. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has an injured ankle but coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday that the team's medical staff was not highly concerned. Cobb, according to Pro Football Talk, had X-rays on his ankle on Sunday but they were negative.

Cobb had 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's lopsided win over the Tennessee Titans. He is expected to be able to play in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb has been a strong fantasy wide receiver all season and turned in another good game on Sunday against Tennessee. It sounds like this injury is just a scare and he should be ready for Week 17.

Fantasy owners playing in Week 17 should, at this point, feel confident about having Cobb in the lineup against the Vikings.
