|Coaches praise Packers WR Randall Cobb for mindset |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(11:39 am ET) The work ethic and determination of Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb not only allowed him to bounce back Sunday from a poor performance in Week 3 against Detroit, but it earned him the praise of Mike McCarthy.
"Randall's a tireless worker. He's a true pro," McCarthy told the team website. "He was that way at a young age. His rookie year, he was clearly one of the most impressive rookies from a maturity standpoint that we've had come through the doors. He's the same guy every day. ... The performance of prior games, it might give you more motivation. I've never seen him need more urgency in his approach. He's a very consistent professional."
Cobb achieved season-highs with seven catches and 113 yards in the defeat of the Bears on Sunday and added two touchdowns to give him five on the season. Receivers coach Edgar Bennett was duly impressed, but not particularly surprised.
"He's one of the toughest - I say receiver - but football players I've been around," Bennett said. "Not only from a physical standpoint, but that's mentality as well. He's tough minded. He understands what goes into it, and what it's going to take to go from good to great. That's always the standard. 'Good is not good enough.' ... I think that's the mindset, certainly, that he has."
|Randall Cobb proves he matters between the 20s |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/28/14) While Randall Cobb owners weren't exactly disappointed with their top wide receiver's performance through the first three weeks, there was some reason for concern heading into Week 4 at Chicago. He had already scored three touchdowns, sure, but he had also averaged just 42.0 receiving yards through three games.
Against the Bears, though, he finally got the yards to go along with the touchdowns, scoring twice more with a team-high 113 yards on seven catches. Five of those catches came between the 20s.
Helping Cobb's cause was the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers finally lived up to expectations, throwing for more than 200 yards for just the second time this season. Cobb had just 39 yards when Rodgers threw for a career-high 346 in Week 2.
But he did have two touchdowns in that game as well, so it's clear Rodgers has as much confidence in him as ever. You should, too.

(9/28/14) Packers wideout Randall Cobb had average overall numbers highlighted by three touchdowns heading into Week 4. But against the Bears on Sunday, he added season-highs in catches and yards.
Cobb caught seven passes for a game-high 113 yards and did as much to bury the Bears as anyone. He raced past a cornerback for a 22-yard score with a minute left in the first half, then added a 3-yard reception eight seconds into the fourth quarter to put the cherry on top of an easy victory.
He wasn't done, however. He added a 46-yard in the middle of the final quarter and finished with seven catches for 113 yards. Cobb will seek to take his momentum and run with it Thursday night against the visiting Vikings.

(9/22/14) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was not happy following his team's 19-7 loss Sunday against the Lions. Cobb totaled only three catches for 29 yards, and the entire offense struggled against a Lions defense that was decimated by injury.
"Our defense played their butts off tonight," Cobb said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We did nothing for them. It was kind of embarrassing as an offense, embarrassing myself the way I played."
Although Cobb had two touchdowns Week 2 and three on the season, he has just 14 catches for 126 yards through three games. He also has just one catch of 20-plus yards.
"I have to do more, I have to give this team more," he said. "I have to look in the mirror first and see where it is that I can do more to help this team out."
|Randall Cobb can't get open Week 3 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/21/14) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb couldn't get open Week 3 against the Lions.
Cobb caught just three passes for 29 yards during the contest. He was targeted six times, which ranked second on the team. The Packers offense was held in check throughout the game, and no player really broke out. Cobb will look for more Week 4 against Chicago.
|A broken leg might have hurt Randall Cobb's Fantasy outcome last year but the spirit of Fantasy owners interested in drafting Cobb isn't broken at all. If you want to see an example of his potential, review his first two games of last season where he had 10-plus targets, 100-plus yards and a touchdown in both. Cobb slowed down after that before breaking his leg but there's really no sign of him becoming a less important part of the Packers offense. Between his receiving skills and rushing prowess he should be a cinch for well over 1,000 yards and around eight scores. Figure him to be a borderline No. 1/No. 2 Fantasy receiver worth a pick between late Round 3 and late Round 4, probably after you see names like Antonio Brown and Alshon Jeffery go off the board.
