|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.

Out until Week 15
|The Packers all but confirmed that WR Randall Cobb's broken fibula is a two-month injury Tuesday, placing him on injured reserve / designated to return. Under the new designated-to-return tag, Cobb is eligible to practice after six weeks and play after eight weeks. So at a minimum, he will miss eight weeks and be eligible to return to action against the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 15.

FF Today's Take: This move all but kills his fantasy value for the season unless you have a deep bench. Expect TE Jermichael Finley to see increased targets and WR Jarrett Boykin will take over the No. 3 wide receiver role. James Jones (knee) is a question mark for Week 7.
| Cobb to miss multiple weeks -- Mon Oct 14 4:10 pm --|
James Jones questionable for Week 7
|Randall Cobb will be out "multiple weeks" ... James Jones might be able to play this week. (Packer Report)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb's owners can take solace in the fact his knee injury wasn't season-ending, although the initial timetable being discussed is anywhere from 2-8 weeks. Even if Jones can go in Week 7, expect Jermichael Finley to be a much bigger priority in the passing game and Jarrett Boykin to see a lot of action as well. As a player Aaron Rodgers singled out this summer, Boykin is worth scooping up off waivers.

Wide receivers banged up in Packers win
|The Green Bay Packers lost Randall Cobb and James Jones -- two of their top three receivers -- in the first half of Sunday's 19-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. After Jones went down with a left leg injury in the first quarter, Cobb left with a right knee injury in the second quarter. Neither player returned to the game. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Both receivers will have MRI's on Monday. Cobb was on crutches after the game. Jarrett Boykin would be the next man up if either miss significant time.
