If Week 1 is any indication, the Green Bay Packers are looking for more ways to get wide receiver Randall Cobb involved in the offense. According to ESPN Wisconsin, the Packers on Sunday lined Cobb in the backfield 19 times. Cobb caught nine passes for 77 yards in the loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy Impact: Cobb will be a popular waiver wire pickup for Week 2, especially considering the number of times he was targeted on Sunday and the pass-happy Green Bay offense. The Packers won't play defenses as good as San Francisco's every week, so Cobb may lose out on chances some weeks to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson. However, fantasy owners looking for help at receiver should certainly consider Cobb.
