Randall Cobb at practice Wednesday, not expected to play in fantasy finals

The Packers receiver practiced on Wednesday for the first time since breaking his leg. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb (broken leg) participated in individual drills at practice on Wednesday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Cobb broke his leg on October 13th against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Chances are slim to none that Cobb would actually be rushed back into the lineup and play this week. Even in the event he plays, he'd be very limited without a doubt.

Cobb is a fantasy superstar particularly in leagues that reward receptions or return yards. He is by far the Packers' most versatile player.

In Cobb's absence, teammate Jarrett Boykin has stepped in and done very well playing out of the slot. Boykin like Cobb can rack up receptions when the targets are coming his way.

The challenge with any receiver in the green and gold right now is not who's catching, but rather who's throwing. With quarterback Aaron Rodgers (broken collarbone) not a guarantee to play this week just yet, no receiver on the team is a sure bet fantasy wise.
