Depth Chart
While itís not exactly fair to say that Nelson burst onto the scene in 2011 since he had showcased some playmaking ability during his first three years in the league, it is fair to say that he shocked those outside of the Packer Nation with his performance last season. Nelson finished as the 2nd ranked fantasy wide receiver courtesy of his 68 reception, 1,263 yard, 15 touchdown season. What is perhaps even more remarkable is that Nelson put up those numbers despite being targeted just 96 times, easily the lowest amount of any top 10 fantasy receiver. Nelson clearly benefited from consistently facing single coverage, hauling in eight touchdowns on passes of 36 yards or more. While Nelson may get more targets in 2012, expecting another 15-touchdown performance isnít very realistic. Itís also worth noting that Nelson also benefitted from the absence of Greg Jennings down the stretch, as he racked up 20 receptions for 387 yards and six touchdowns between Weeks 14 and 17. With so many mouths to feed, Nelson isnít going to get the 140 or more targets that many top wide receivers get but expect another productive season in 2012, one that will likely rank him as a lower tier WR1 or upper tier WR2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cobb frustrated by double coverage     -- Fri Oct 16 5:55 pm --

WR on pace for nearly 300 fewer receiving yards than last season
There are several ways to beat the frequent double coverage that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has faced almost every week this season, but it's not about rewriting the playbook. Over the 35 years in which passing has been an obsession in the NFL, the best solution always has been to make the opponent pay somewhere else. After receiver Davante Adams suffered a serious ankle sprain that has limited him to about a half of football over the past four games, the Packers became more susceptible to double coverage. The San Francisco 49ers gave Cobb a heavy dose of it two weeks ago and the St. Louis Rams continued it Sunday. Over the past two weeks, the Packers offense has scored 34 points and Cobb has been held to eight catches for 67 yards. "It's definitely frustrating," Cobb said. "But it's part of the game, it happens. I'm sure Jordy felt like this at times last year. But the more guys make plays around us, the harder it will be for teams to do that. That's why we need everybody making plays." (Milwaukee )

FF Today's Take: From a fantasy perspective, Cobb has been hit the hardest by Jordy Nelson's absence this season, but that's no reason to sell low on Cobb. Davante Adams - who Aaron Rodgers recently referred to as a "Pro Bowl-caliber" receiver - will be back either this week or following the Packers' bye week in two weeks, and should command more respect from opposing secondaries than James Jones has.
Injury Randall Cobb to be ready Week 1     -- Tue Sep 1 1:15 pm --

Packers WR remains a top fantasy option heading into 2015
An NFL source told FOX Sports on Tuesday that all ďindicatorsĒ point to Randall Cobb being able to play after he suffered an A/C sprain during Saturday nightís preseason game against Philadelphia. (Fox Sports)

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.
