How about a little Randall Cobb to go with your royal baby watch? ESPN Insider has started their NFL previews, and Gary Horton recently had a nice piece ranking the NFC’s most versatile players. Number one shouldn’t come as a shock: Randall Cobb. Horton says that Cobb’s versatility makes him “an almost impossible matchup for opposing defenses”:
1. Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers
He has evolved from a one-dimensional return specialist into a complete offensive player for the Packers. His ability to play multiple roles makes him an almost impossible matchup for opposing defenses. Cobb had a whopping 2,342 all-purpose yards in 2012, and much more is expected this season.
He can line up anywhere at wide receiver but is most effective working out of the slot and can also be very productive when he lines up in the backfield, either as a runner or outlet receiver. We do expect Cobb’s return duties to lessen as the coaches concentrate on getting him creative offensive touches.
I pat myself on the back every day for picking Cobb in my fantasy keeper league his rookie year. WHO’S LAUGHING NOW, NON-KENTUCKY FANS??
