|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, Adams expected to play for Pack -- Sun Jan 22 8:30 am --|
|Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison are all game-time decisions for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons but are expected to play, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder. Packers coach Mike McCarthy has indicated some or all of the players will be evaluated in pregame workouts before a final determination is made. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: We won't know for sure until gametime but it appears all three injured receivers could be active for today's game against the Falcons. Nelson will wear a Kevlar vest to protect his ribs. Given their status, it would be difficult for fantasy owners to trust anyone but Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and TE Jared Cook in the passing game.
| Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs -- Mon Jan 9 6:35 pm --|
HC: "It will take a tremendous effort for him to play."
|Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in their wild-card win over the Giants, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds it will take a tremendous effort for Nelson to play. Nelson spent Sunday night in the hospital after taking a vicious shot to the ribs from Giants CB Leon Hall in the first half of Green Bay's 38-13 win over New York. The All-Pro pass-catcher will work this week with the team's rehab group, per HC Mike McCarthy. If Nelson can practice successfully on Saturday, the Packers would consider playing him against Big D.
FF Today's Take: Owners should consider him highly unlikely to go. Randall Cobb exploded for a 5-116-3 line, while Davante Adams countered with 8-125-1, and both players will likely need to play at a high level against Dallas. Geronimo Allison will see the biggest increase in value, however, as he should assume the bulk of snaps created by Nelson's absence. He should be a low-cost, high-upside option in DFS.
