Green Bay Packers wide receiver is not on the injury list and will be practicing in full all week. Cobb suffered a biceps injury early in training camp and was held out of the first three preseason games, but he should be ready to go against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Cobb enjoyed a breakout season in 2012, recording 80 receptions for eight touchdowns and adding 1,256 yards on returns.

Fantasy impact: As expected, the injury wasn't a long term concern and the Packers held him out as a mere precaution in August. Cobb is locked in as a starter after Greg Jennings left in free agency. He will be playing opposite Jordy Nelson in the outside position and occasionally rotate with James Jones in the slot. Cobb is a high-end WR2 this year with huge upside if his drops decrease. His special teams prowess gives him extra value if your league counts return yards.
