Franklin hasnt shown any wow factor yet. He has been adequate, not special, as a pass blocker. Hes tough and quick, but has struggled making headway between the tackles partially due to size. The assumption… IN MY DAY… Via 60 Max Power O | 1 day ago Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt just couldnt hide his praise on rookie RB Eddie Lacy. Some think the team should limit his exposure and roll out the elusive runner once the regular season begins, but Van Pelt disagrees with that assessment. He wants Lacy to get as much live action as possible and get him up to speed so there are no hiccups starting day.

Randall Cobb could need ‘extended rest’

There are still some traditional names at tight end for your draft, like vets Jason Witten and Vernon Davis . But some new studs are also emerging, as well as guys who are on the cusp of breakout seasons. Our fantasyexpert, who also happens to be Aaron Rodgers ‘ No. 1 target, Randall Cobb , gives you his list of top fantasy tight ends in the video above, along with a bonus sleeper pick.

He even had three passes thrown his way during the final period, a no-huddle drill, and he hauled in two of them. For two straight days, Cobb has practiced with a wrap on the biceps injury he sustained last week. Considering how often coach Mike McCarthy talks about being smart with injured players, it was somewhat surprising to see Cobb on the field when he was in such obvious pain. Cobb “Trying to be smart and be tough at the same time is difficult for me,” Cobb said after practice. “But I understand that I have limitations, and I have to be smart about it. But it’s hard and difficult at times.” When asked whether he was being smart by practicing on Tuesday, Cobb simply said: “No.” “It’s something that we understand what the injury is, and we wouldn’t put him out there if we thought he was in jeopardy of moving forward and getting healthy,” McCarthy said.

Fantasy Football: Green Bay Packers’ Randall Cobb A Bust?

Rodgers loves to fling the ball and the Packers love to let him. Hell find targets wherever he can, and Cobb will no doubt be one of those targets. But expecting Randall Cobb to be a steady number one receiver may be asking too much. Rodgers does even better thanTom BradyandDrew Breesin spreading the ball around. Its a large part of why hes been so successful, he turns all of his weapons into even more deadly weapons. Cobb will have a good year. The point is, however, that he may not be the No. 1 wide receiver that the experts have him projected as. Hes been generally accepted as a top-10 fantasy wide receiver this year. Thats expecting way too much.

As a fantasy owner, wouldnt you like to have a guy that has the potential to score on ANY reception? I know I do. Cobbs average per reception was 12 yards. Basically, a first down per catch. Its an absolute Youth White Jordy Nelson Jersey certainty that the Packers are going to try and get this guy the ball every opportunity they can. Also, with his speedster ability, the Packers have shown an interest in giving Cobb some rushing attempts. A few end-arounds and a few deceptive hand-offs are always nice for a receiver. Cobb could see around 10 or more attempts as he did last season. Having a guy that is involved in those types of plays is a nice bonus because they are deceptive and geared around scoring on that play. I definitely want a guy with versatility and multiple opportunities.
