|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 didn’t change Green Bay’s 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 that’s 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 it’s easy to love Cobb’s game and potential, it’s pretty much impossible to love his fantasy prospects for 2012. He’s waiver wire material this season but a solid prospect in dynasty formats.
| Randall Cobb diagnosed with punctured lung -- Thu Feb 4 6:55 pm --|
WR wonders if microphone didn't lead to bizarre injury
|Randall Cobb can't say for certain, but the Green Bay Packers wide receiver can't help but wonder if being mic'd up for the team's NFC divisional playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals contributed to the lung injury he suffered during the first quarter.
"I didn't break a rib, I didn't fracture a rib, which is really abnormal, to puncture a lung without that. But I was mic'd up for the game, and the battery for the mic was on my shoulder pads. I landed flush on my back during the catch, and I punctured my lung. I'm not saying it was (because of being mic'd up). There's no way to prove that. But it's kind of crazy that I punctured a lung without breaking a rib," Cobb said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb, who was initially diagnosed with a bruised lung, asked to go back in the game before the Packers' training staff chose to monitor him in the locker room; they eventually took him to the hospital before halftime. He stayed in the hospital overnight and was released the next day. The 25-year-old Cobb is expected to participate fully in offseason workouts and makes for an interesting buy-low target coming off a disappointing 79-catch season in which he managed 829 yards and six touchdowns.
| Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule on ACL rehab -- Mon Jan 18 8:55 pm --|
"Looks great" five months after suffering year-ending injury
|McCarthy also commented on Jordy Nelson. The Packers wide receiver suffered a significant right knee injury in the Packers preseason matchup versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was out for the season.
Mike McCarthy said he fells that Nelson will come back next season better than ever. The coach said Nelson is “so far ahead with rehab,” and that he “looks great.” (Fox6now.com)|
FF Today's Take: While Nelson's absence wasn't the only problem Green Bay faced on offense this year, it proved to be the hardest one to overcome. Randall Cobb disappointed as the lead receiver while Davante Adams failed to live up to Aaron Rodgers' expectations during a injury-ruined sophomore season. Nelson will be 31 in May and is coming off a major knee injury, but he will be over 12 months into his recovery by next September. He should be considered a WR2 with upside in 2016.
| Davante Adams MCL sprain, unlikely to play -- Tue Jan 12 11:16 am --|
Packers down starting receiver
|The Green Bay Packers are likely to be without receiver Davante Adams for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals.
According to a source, further tests on Adams' right knee showed a possible MCL sprain.
FF Today's Take: The severity of the injury remains unclear but it sounds like Adams avoided a serious knee injury. Without Adams, Jared Abbrederis should see increased opportunities but will take a back seat to James Jones and Randall Cobb in the passing game.
