New York Jets wide receiver Randall Cobb is active for the Week 12 game on Friday against the Miami Dolphins. Cobb is active for the first time since Week 6 because the Jets decided to make struggling wideout Allen Lazard a healthy scratch for this one. Cobb has just three catches on 12 targets for 20 yards and no touchdowns in six games played for the Jets this year, but his role could be expanded on Friday with Lazard riding the pine. Garrett Wilson should remain the top targeted receiver in New York, with rookie Xavier Gipson also seeing an expanded role with Lazard out of the picture. However, there isn't going to be a lot of fantasy upside for any Jets receiver with quarterback Tim Boyle under center in his first start of the season.

New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard (knee) is officially active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers. Meanwhile, veteran receiver Randall Cobb is a healthy scratch. Lazard popped up on the Week 9 injury report on Saturday and was limited in practice, but it was more of a precaution than anything. The 27-year-old will be on the field as New York's No. 2 wideout behind Garrett Wilson in an excellent matchup against the Chargers defense. Lazard's fantasy stock took a nosedive when quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a torn Achilles in the season opener. With Zach Wilson running the offense through seven games, Lazard has only 17 receptions for 255 yards and one touchdown on 29 targets.

New York Jets wide receiver Randall Cobb (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on Thursday. Cobb should be healthy enough to play on Monday Night Football to close out Week 9 action against the Los Angeles Chargers, but the 33-year-old could be a healthy scratch for the second straight week. Cobb's chances of being fantasy relevant in 2023 pretty much went out the window when quarterback Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles on the first offensive series of the year. Cobb has been active for six games in his first year in New York and has caught just three passes on 12 targets for 20 yards and no scores. Continue to ignore Cobb in all fantasy leagues.

When the New York Jets signed wide receiver Randall Cobb this offseason, it felt like he would serve as more of a veteran mentor than have a prominent offensive role. However, by the end of training camp, it was clear that not only will he play a role, but he'll likely start in Week 1 of the regular season, according to The Athletic. He has looked like the team's best option in the slot and the best replacement for the retired Corey Davis in the running game. The 33-year-old could still have something left in the tank, but fantasy managers shouldn't waste a draft pick in him. Mecole Hardman Jr. will mostly be used as a gadget player, so fantasy managers expecting a breakout from him might be disappointed. The X-factor for Cobb is his longstanding relationship with quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

New York Jets wide receiver Randall Cobb is entering his 13th NFL season and has not posted over 450 receiving yards since 2019. However, Zack Rosenblatt of the Athletic reports Cobb has been getting more reps with Aaron Rodgers than Mecole Harman Jr. in recent practices. Rodgers and Cobb spent 10 seasons together in Green Bay and are close friends, but it'd be a surprising development to see the 33-year-old wideout play a larger role than Hardman this season. This is just a preseason report and should be taken with a grain of salt, but it's a situation worth monitoring. Neither player will likely be a great fantasy option in 12-team leagues.
