|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.

Packers WR remains a top fantasy option heading into 2015

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.

Packers WR suffers shoulder injury

FF Today's Take: The fear was a broken collarbone, but X-rays confirmed that's not the case. An A/C sprain is the likely diagnosis but we won't know for sure until more tests are completed and announced. At this point Cobb should still be drafted as WR1 but fantasy owners should be aware that his shoulder injury may limit him early in the season.
| ACL tear confirmed for Jordy Nelson -- Mon Aug 24 5:30 pm --|
Out for season
|Green Bay Packers star WR Jordy Nelson will miss the entire 2015 season with a knee injury, the team announced Monday.
The Packers said in a statement that Nelson suffered "a significant right knee injury" in Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Nelson, who caught a career-high 98 passes in 2014 while making the Pro Bowl for the first time, fell to the ground when he tried to cut after making an 8-yard reception on Green Bay's opening drive. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: This was the expected result after Nelson suffered the injury Sunday afternoon. Although it is unrealistic to think the Packers will simply conduct business as usual on offense without Nelson, they are more equipped to handle this kind of setback at receiver than most teams. For fantasy purposes, Randall Cobb likely moves into the elite-receiver territory, Davante Adams becomes a high-end WR2 and Jeff Janis or rookie Ty Montgomery offers high upside in the later rounds.
|HC: "Expect big things" from Davante Adams -- Thu Aug 20 6:55 pm --|
Second-year WR continues to turn heads for Packers
|Packers HC Mike McCarthy on Davante Adams: "I think he's had a heck of a camp. Looking for big things from him." (Rob Demovsky on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Adams has generated headlines all offseason for the improvement he has made from his rookie year. The 6-1, 215-pound Fresno State product has Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb blocking him from a starting gig, but owners shouldn't forget third receiver James Jones led the league in touchdown catches in 2012 in this offense. Adams should be drafted as a low-end WR3, but if Nelson or Cobb was to get hurt, he could easily ascent to low-end WR1 status.
