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

Week 3 vs. Detroit
Cobb had just five catches for 42 yards last week and now has 11 receptions this season for 99 yards. He also has yet to score. Detroit has allowed six TD passes this season and Jordy Nelson is starting to round back into shape, so better days are ahead for Cobb, possibly as soon as this week. Cobb should be a decent No. 2 start this week because of the matchup.
