Packers writer says WR Randall Cobb could lead league in receptions

Vic Ketchman of was asked in a Wednesday mailbag column who he thinks could lead the team in touchdown receptions this season. While he didn't answer the question directly, Ketchman did present a lofty prediction for wide receiver Randall Cobb @rcobb18.
"I think Randall Cobb could lead the league in receptions this season."
"Because he plays in an offense that is going to use him in multiple ways."
Cobb caught 25 passes in his first four games last year before a broken leg in Week 6 sidelined him for the next two months.

Fantasy Analysis:

Doing some simply math, 25 catches in four games extends out to 100 catches over a full season. That wouldn't have put Cobb atop the receptions leaderboard last season, but that's not really the point. One hundred catches is still an elite total, and we know his teammates believe Cobb can reach it.
Cobb is a WR1 in any format in this Packers' offense and a bigger stud in PPR leagues. He is extremely dangerous with the ball in his hands, and the Packers have indeed found different ways to involve him, even handing the ball to him on occasion. The Packers' desire to limit Cobb's contribution on special teams is another sign of how important he is to their offense. Cobb is going to have an awesome season as long as he stays healthy.
