Packers trying to get WR Randall Cobb more involved in offense

Randall Cobb @rcobb18 will remain the Packers' primary return man, but the coaching staff wants to do something, anything, to make sure his talents are utilized more on offense this year.
"He is a versatile player," head coach Mike McCarthy said of Cobb, "and it's important to always try to create schemes where you're giving people the opportunity to make plays."

Fantasy Analysis:

Cobb scored three touchdowns last year -- two on special teams, one as a wide receiver. He caught just 25 passes in 2011, but has reportedly improved his route-running in camp and has already been used much more frequently on offense than a year ago. He's an intriguing fantasy option because of the offense he's apart of, and his incredible athleticism. Cobb might become a worthy spot-starter in deep leagues, but he'll have big games that make you wonder why he isn't more prominent mixed in with games that basically become disappearing acts.
