|Draft: 2011 Round 2 (32)
Ht: 5’10” Wt: 192 DOB: 1990-08-22 Age: 25
|Taken in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, Cobb looked like a future stud after he took a kickoff back for a touchdown and caught a nifty 32 yard touchdown pass in the Packers opening game of the season. While he showcased his play-making ability in that game, it didnít change Green Bayís plans to limit his role and Cobb ended up finishing the season with just 31 targets, catching 25 passes for 375 yards and that one touchdown. Unfortunately for Cobb, the Packers re-signed aging veteran Donald Driver in the offseason and James Jones remains on the roster despite reports indicating that the team was considering moving him. As we noted last season, most 2nd round receivers end up getting a decent shot at playing time but thatís a difficult proposition when you play on a team with the deepest, most talented group of wide receivers in the league and one that also possesses a Pro Bowl quality tight end. While itís easy to love Cobbís game and potential, itís pretty much impossible to love his fantasy prospects for 2012. Heís waiver wire material this season but a solid prospect in dynasty formats.
|Cobb frustrated by double coverage -- Fri Oct 16 5:55 pm --|
WR on pace for nearly 300 fewer receiving yards than last season
|There are several ways to beat the frequent double coverage that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has faced almost every week this season, but it's not about rewriting the playbook. Over the 35 years in which passing has been an obsession in the NFL, the best solution always has been to make the opponent pay somewhere else. After receiver Davante Adams suffered a serious ankle sprain that has limited him to about a half of football over the past four games, the Packers became more susceptible to double coverage. The San Francisco 49ers gave Cobb a heavy dose of it two weeks ago and the St. Louis Rams continued it Sunday. Over the past two weeks, the Packers offense has scored 34 points and Cobb has been held to eight catches for 67 yards. "It's definitely frustrating," Cobb said. "But it's part of the game, it happens. I'm sure Jordy felt like this at times last year. But the more guys make plays around us, the harder it will be for teams to do that. That's why we need everybody making plays." (Milwaukee )|
FF Today's Take: From a fantasy perspective, Cobb has been hit the hardest by Jordy Nelson's absence this season, but that's no reason to sell low on Cobb. Davante Adams - who Aaron Rodgers recently referred to as a "Pro Bowl-caliber" receiver - will be back either this week or following the Packers' bye week in two weeks, and should command more respect from opposing secondaries than James Jones has.
| Randall Cobb: "I'll be on the field Sunday" -- Thu Sep 10 7:00 am --|
Shouler injury may linger for a couple weeks
|Receiver Randall Cobb returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant 11 days after injuring his shoulder in an exhibition game against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I'll be on the field Sunday," Cobb said. "I have to deal with this for a few weeks," Cobb said. "That's part of it." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb's sprained shoulder will keep him at less than 100% for the next few weeks. Still, as long as he's on the field he's viable WR1 in a Packers high-octane offense without Jordy Nelson.
| Randall Cobb practices Wednesday -- Wed Sep 9 4:50 pm --|
|Cobb, who sustained a shoulder sprain two weeks ago, was working on the field and participated in individual drills, according to ESPN.com. He was officially listed as limited on the team's injury report. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: This is encouraging news for the Randall Cobb and his owners. Cobb is preparing for a week 1 tilt against the Bears, however he will need to advance past individual drills before Sunday to get onto the field. At this point it is looking like Cobb will be a game-time decision for Sunday with Davante Adams waiting for a huge role in the passing game if Cobb is less than 100 percent.

Packers WR remains a top fantasy option heading into 2015
|An NFL source told FOX Sports on Tuesday that all ďindicatorsĒ point to Randall Cobb being able to play after he suffered an A/C sprain during Saturday nightís preseason game against Philadelphia. (Fox Sports)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb remains a Top 10 fantasy WR despite the injury, which shouldn't affect his season too much. With Jordy Nelson (torn ACL) out for the season, Cobb is primed to best his career highs in both yardage and receptions.
