2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Coming off an 80-954-8 line in 2012, Randall Cobb was poised to enter 2013 as a serious threat among the upper tier of fantasy wide receivers. He was on his way, combining for a ridiculous 22 targets, 16 catches, 236 yards and two touchdowns in the season's first two weeks. He cooled slightly over the next several weeks before suffering a broken leg in Week 6. He returned in heroic fashion with teammate Aaron Rodgers in Week 17 to net two scores to beat the Bears.

Once again, Cobb enters a season with big expectations. With the changing of the guard out wide, the Packers will count on Cobb more than ever to be a reliable target for Rodgers. Can fantasy owners once again put their trust in Cobb to approach WR1 numbers in an era when the wide receiver position is at its deepest in history? Because of his mastery in the slot, ability to use his quickness to get separation and role in the offense, Cobb certainly should be among the league leaders in targets in 2014.

What separates tiers of receivers are their ability and opportunity to score touchdowns. When it comes to touchdowns, bigger is usually better. Those 6'2''+, 210 pound receivers are able to use their frames to do something Cobb can't: outmuscle defensive backs for jump balls, slants and curls in the red zone. In his three years, Cobb has proven to be able to do something very few receivers his size haven't been able to do: score in or very near the red zone. Eight of his 13 career touchdowns receptions have come from 22 yards or less. This is a better rate than similarly-sized Victor Cruz and very close to that of mighty mite Wes Welker, whose last 14 touchdowns were from inside the red zone. Play calling, ability and an elite quarterback mean that Cobb should be able to record double-digit touchdowns, and that combined with catch totals that should be in excess of 80. Cobb is someone you can draft as a WR2 but who could end up out-producing your WR1.

Comment: Cobb's redzone production during his career makes me a threat for double-digit TDs should he remain healthy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Nelson "superlative" in Packers camp
Cobb has "looked rather common"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 7, 3:40 pm

Green Bay Packers
After closely observing Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb during the first two weeks of training camp, it's become clearer than ever that GM Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and VP Russ Ball prioritized correctly at wide receiver. Nelson has established himself as a great player. His day-in, day-out superlative play in practice this summer only reaffirmed his primacy in Green Bay. But based on the small sample size of the opening 10 practices of camp, Cobb has looked rather common based on his 2012 level of play. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)

FFToday's Take: It has been speculated that rookie second-rounder Davante Adams' future might be in the slot, which could make this something of a make-or-break year for Cobb in Green Bay as he enters the final season of his rookie contract. Nelson's camp performance should come as no surprise; he is one of the most efficient receivers in football and should be poised for another mid-level WR1 season as Aaron Rodgers' most dependable target.


Packers aiming for 75 plays per game
Broncos led the NFL in 2013 with 72.1
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 14, 4:10 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers HC Mike McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly one of the new rookie receivers; another 1,000-plus yard season for Eddie Lacy; solid pass protection - will fall into place. The first hint of McCarthy's plans came in February, when he declared that he wants all of his running backs to turn into three-down players in order to limit the need for substitutions, which, of course, slows down the game. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It is always notable when one of the league's best offenses wants to do something in order to give its best players more opportunities. Rodgers, Lacy, Cobb and Nelson are already in line for a ton of production regardless of the tempo Green Bay operates at, but a few more plays per game may allow players like Boykin and James Starks to become spot starters in deeper fantasy leagues and enable the stars to bump up their numbers a bit at the same time.
