Two of fantasy football's top receivers returned to action on Sunday after missing time due to injuries. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both returned to Packers practice on Sunday, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein.

Nelson had been hampering a knee injury, which concerned owners across the board since the full nature of the injury was never revealed. All that was specified was that the staff hoped he would be ready Week 1, and he now appears to be on track to do so.

Cobb had a biceps injury that has kept him out of preseason action, but was never in danger of missing any regular season snaps.

Fantasy Spin: This is great news for owners everywhere, as the number of consistent receivers seemed to have been dwindling. Cobb and Nelson will both benefit from a pass-happy attack in Green Bay, and have high ceilings in any given week. Cobb remains especially worthy of his late third-round average draft position in PPR leagues, and Nelson is looking like a steal in the fifth or sixth round.
