|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.
|Nelson "superlative" in Packers camp -- Thu Aug 7 3:40 pm --|
Cobb has "looked rather common"
|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)|
FF Today'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.
