2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Randall Cobb Will Produce Once Again For Packers
Name: Randall Cobb
Team: Green Bay Packers
Position: Wide Receiver
Years Pro: 2
Draft stock: (Stagnant) At this point, Cobb has arrived as a play-making wide receiver. With over 1,000 all-purpose yards in just his second year, Cobb has been incredibly productive since he was drafted in 2010 and NFL fans have already taken notice. However, there are the pessimists who think that Cobb was just a flash in the pan and can’t possibly live up to expectations in 2013.
2012 fantasy impact: Cobb was a pleasant surprise for Green Bay last year. In fact, Cobb emerged as the Packers No. 2 wide receiver after just 25 catches in his rookie year. It’s the 132 rushing yards that Cobb had in 2012 that showed us all just how productive and versatile No. 18 is.
Best-case scenario: Aaron Rodgers finds out that Cobb is the best slot wideout in the league and these two connect regularly in 2013. Cobb’s doubters are given a slice of humble pie as the under-sized wide receiver leads the NFL in receiving yards and touchdowns.
Worst-case scenario: Green Bay’s offense takes a step back with Bryan Bulaga injured and Greg Jennings out of town. Now, Rodgers is forced to hit the open man and Cobb isn’t featured as much as he was in 2012. Injuries keep Cobb on the sidelines as his 5-foot-1o frame proves to be problematic.
Where you should draft him: Some eager fantasy football owners are drafting Cobb as early as the third round, but red flags pop out when I see Cobb going that early in the draft. Look for this upstart wide receiver around the fourth or fifth round if you can.
