Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was quiet in the passing game Sunday - four receptions on eight targets for 35 yards - but added 72 rushing yards to his total, for 107 all-purpose yards. Cobb's production came as the Packers beat the Detroit Lions 22-9.
Through four games this season, Cobb has 21 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy football: It would be easy to dismiss Cobb's rushing yards as a fluke, with 67 of the 72 coming on a single carry. But Cobb led all wide receivers in rushing yards last season with 132; running the ball is part of Cobb's, and the Packers', game.
Cobb had touchdowns in the Packers' first two games this season, with wide receiver James Jones scoring in each of the team's last two. That further illustrates the difficulties in picking which Green Bay pass-catcher (Jones, Cobb, and Jordy Nelson) to rely on game-to-game, but in the long run, all three -- and, most likely, tight end Jermichael Finley -- will get theirs. The best strategy with those three/four is to start whichever one(s) you own and don't stress over individual performances. The totals will be there.
