Packers WR Randall Cobb has added weight

Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 8:37am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Randall Cobb juked one defender and ran over another on the way to his 6-yard touchdown catch last Friday against the San Francisco 49ers.

On the sideline, fellow Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson couldn't wait to give Cobb a hard time.

"I told him the old 190-[pound Cobb] wouldn't have made it in," Nelson joked. "But whatever he is now got in."

It's not the only reason Cobb decided to put on some weight this offseason but if it means breaking a few more tackles, then that's fine with him. Cobb looked both quick (when he side-stepped cornerback Chris Davis) and strong (when he bulldozed cornerback Keith Reaser) on his catch-and-run score in the second quarter against the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact:

Last year's shoulder injury played a big role for Cobb adding weight. While he played every game, he lost a lot of strength by the end of the season and is looking to stay injury free with a consistent weight of 195 or 196 compared to the 184 pound he sunk to at one point last year, the story said.

Scouting Report

2016 Fantasy Outlook
We learned in 2015 that Randall Cobb is not a No. 1 receiver. Despite having three more targets (129) than he had in 2014, Cobb saw his catch total drop from 91 to 79 and his yardage slashed by 450 yards. His touchdown production also fell from 12 to 6 as opponents focused on shutting him down without Jordy Nelson in the lineup. Cobb will turn 26 in August and should benefit from the return of Nelson. Despite his struggles last season, he's still considered a decent No. 2 fantasy and has an ADP of 41. You should be able to nab him in the third or fourth round of your draft and hope the return of Nelson means a bounce back for this former high-volume star.
