|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.

Injury-marred season fueling third-year WR
|Randall Cobb isn't happy. Of all the Packers who were upset after the loss Sunday to San Francisco, perhaps the slot receiver looked the sickest.
"I've got to get better at breaking tackles," said Cobb. "If I want to be a great player ó and not just a good player ó I have to do more. I have to be more. I'm going to take that upon myself this off-season. I'm going to let this pain that I feel right now fuel me to come back stronger and better next season." (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb's early-season injury was unfortunate, but it is a great sign that Cobb is already chomping at the bit to get better. It is doubtful he'll fall very far on draft day in 2014, but with the number of young receivers that broke through this season, it is possible. With his status as one of Aaron Rodgers' two favorite passing-game options, Cobb should still be considered a top 10 receiver for fantasy purposes next year.

Returns after seven-game absence

FF Today's Take: While Rodgers' return comes about a week to a month too late for his fantasy owners, it comes at just the right time for the Packers as they face the Chicago Bears for the NFC North title. Rodgers is an elite quarterback and raises the fantasy floor for every Green Bay receiver, including Jordy Nelson and James Jones. Randall Cobb also got in a padded practice Thursday, suggesting he may see some snaps as well.

FF Today's Take: Consecutive days of practice now suggest he might be ready to go by the time the playoffs roll around should the Packers make it there, but he's not going to be a fantasy option again this year.
