"McCarthy studied Sproles for Cobb's role (Rotoworld) Coach Mike McCarthy revealed that he watched every 2011 snap of Saints RB Darren Sproles for ideas on designing plays for Randall Cobb. Analysis: McCarthy put those plays into heavy use in Week 1, but Cobb's role has dwindled in two games since. We still believe Cobb's talent and versatility is well worth a roster spot in 12-team leagues. His role could be expanded with the offense struggling to move the ball consistently. "


Sproles skill set and Cobb skill set parallel like a cup of water and a match. I guess I no longer wonder why GB is 1-2.

McCarthy reminds me of that garage logic tinkerer that putz's with a perfectly fuctioning car till it no longer runs and needs to be brought into the shop to get fixed.

None the less GB is going to have to simplfy there offense to account for the lack of O line play. This means Finley and his drops. Making C Bed the center peice of the offense. Jordy in the slot or Randall Cobb. Its bad news for Jennings but GB is ready to move on with out him. I am guessing they try and trade Jennings once mathematics says GB gets to winterize Lambu by Dec 23rd.

My guess is Randall Cobb becomes a house hold name by week 7.

He was (like many others here) one of my PPR later round lottery pick sleepers this year.

Too early to jettison him but it would be nice to see his touches increase....starting this week even though he's firmly implanted on my bench for now.

Yea I'm hanging on for dear life under the assumption that McCarthy has to realize they were moving the ball with him heavily involved against one of the best Ds in the league.

Yea ive liked him since i watched a few Kentucky games. He was the only weapon on the team and everyone knew but he was still unstoppable. Theyd line him up at QB RB and WR and special teams. Hes a ball player...just too many weapons on Gb

It's crazy to me that he is not being utilized more, it seems like every time they get the ball in his hands it's for 20 plus yard gains.

in the last two games in 4 touches he has taken the pack 3/4 the legnth of a football field. Its inexcusable that they are limiting his snaps. Reminds me of when Percy was playing 40 % of the snaps last year.

I agree it's insane. And I don't subscribe to the "too many weapons" argument on any team. Elite talent/playmaking ability wins out and produces anywhere IMO.

I traded him away. Good potential, but I don't trust McCarthy as far as I can throw him. My hands are clean of the Packer clusterfk

Between 'Kuhn Ball' and James Jones.. good luck to you all.

I have a feeling if the pack drops one more game there will be some squeaky wheels demanding grease.

Well as you stated hes producing with most of his touches but McCarthy the brain trust isn't playing him. It could change but do you trust it or Mccarthy? John Kuhn on the field is a red flag to me. I want nothing to do with that crap fest.

Cobb imo is the 2nd best talent on that team.. yet Kuhn, Crabtree, Driver or Jones (toss in Benson) take the field and Cobbs standing on the sideline playing with himself when they need a playmaker on the field. Maybe it'll change and they're holding tape for division play..?.. I just don't trust lazy eye.

I'm with you.

This week I could actually use Cobb with injuries to Forte and Reggie.

But how can I start a guy whose touches have declined each week?

I think the Packers struggles have a lot more to do with a stinky oline than McCarthy. Two years ago the guy was great and now he's retarded? I'm not buying. What he's going to have to do is set up a more balanced game plan, otherwise Rogers will pass 90% of the time exposing the oline further. Once the packers establish a balanced attack and their offense starts clicking again, Cobb will become more of a factor. Trade for Benson now.

Way too early to jump from the Cobb train, he's a young guy developing his role in the offense, good things happens when he touches the ball - he's a desparation byeweek/injury filler for now but he could be an every week guy in the 2nd half. Kinda like the Quizz of WR's.

Its pretty obvious he is a real talent, maybe the most talented offensive player other the Rodgers. The thing is, right now he is a wait and hold. Not a start and not a sell. Hold onto him and we may see a legit every week starter by midseason without an injury ahead of him. If there is an injury, then of course this could happen sooner rather then later. It is suprising to see James Jones getting so much playing time but patience might be key here. He has been a little banged up too so once he gets fuly healthy and some more reps, I do not see how he doesn't blow by Jones....Just like Jordy did easily last year.

Agreed. There's really nothing better you can do but be patient as a Cobb owner.

#Patience: Perhaps the most underdeveloped virtue in fantasy football.
