Top 5 ppr, top 10 standard.

There are still to many other options in GB, And Rodgers likes to spread it sounds to much for him to end up that high. I like him,but I'm tempering my expectations a bit.

I'll have my target on him in round 3 in ppr leagues. I think he'll also end up in the top 5 in ppr.

No Jennings, year 3, won't be returning kicks = sold for big uptick in stats. Could flirt with 100 catches in 16 games.

I'm jumping up and down if cobb is my WR2. But In non-PPR tho I wouldn't call it ideal relying on him as my WR1. If he's one of your 2 starting fantasy WR's I want another very solid option to pair him with.

He'll be in for a few duds next year in that offense, but he will overall be a very solid option.

Wow, people are higher on Cobb than I would have expected. He still has to deal with JNelson, JJones, and Finley competing for catches. I also think that GB will still do something to address their RB position whether it's through the draft or FA (DeAngelo if he's a post 6/1 cap casualty?) This team ran the ball last season more than people are remembering. Besides the above mentioned Calvin, BMarsh & AJ, I am definitely higher on Dez & Julio too. I would also rank DT, Fitz, Cruz, Harvin, and Crabtree over him at this point as well.

Maybe I'm wrong though as Cobb was really solid during the stretch that Jennings was out (weeks 2 & 5-12). Some weeks Cobb was outperformed by Jordy or JJones (or both) but overall his production was pretty consistent with a few really great weeks. I guess I can see the argument that Cobb continues to progress with the other receivers taking a backseat to him. I will be really interested to see where his ADP is at come July.

Let's be honest, Finley isn't much of a threat, and James Jones won't be racking up any targets or reception any time soon. Cobb and Jordy will get the targets and reception, James Jones is the TD guy but Jordy and Cobb will get there's too.

Cobb is not elite, however. He's as high-end as it gets for a WR2 in my eyes.

Calvin

AJ

BMarsh

Dez

Julio

DT

Roddy

Cruz, Harvin...

Cobb

He's a top10 play, but he's not elite but very solid.

Nelson did miss some time last year and Jones seems to have turned a corner, however, unless GB has a set game plan in place this season to give snaps to Jones or Finley over Cobb (unlikely but possible), Cobb will be targeted a ton. Remember he had 80 catches last year in 15 games.

Tons of catches guaranteed but how many TDs can you count on?

Double digit TD's has to be extremely feasible in his offense with his QB.

TDs are so unpredictable. I'll gladly roll the dice with Rodgers do-it-all slot receiver/3rd down back and see what happens.

^ Exactly .. He's super integrated in their offense so his floor during his off games is still going to be good .. And then he's gonna have his games where he just explodes

I can keep three players from last year. The four considerations are Cam, Ridley, Megatron, and Cobb. Honestly it comes down to Ridley vs. Cobb; and its really no contest. All the talk about Cobb competing with James Jones and Finley for targets is just silly. Aaron Rodgers even acknowledged Cobb is the next big thing not only in Green Bay, but in the NFL.

Cobb is his guy. And Nelson is a solid #2 (if he can stay healthy). 90/1250/11 is my prediction for Cobb.

Admittedly, tds can be fluky and we've seen it 2 seasons in a row at GB (Nelson in 2011, Jones in 2012), however, when you have Rodgers throwing him the ball and the GB offense being awesome in general, I'll roll the dice on Cobb ending up with a decent % of those tds by the end of the season. Maybe it's Cobbs turn for 15-16 tds in 2013 ;)
