Cobb is emerging as an explosive player
With the absence of Greg Jennings, the entire group of wide receivers has stepped up. The player who has capitalized most has been Randall Cobb.
Since the injury, Cobb has been getting considerably more snaps in the Packers' offense. In the past three weeks, Cobb has 19 catches for 273 yards and three touchdowns.
Not only has Cobb been playing well at receiver, the Packers have also been putting him in the backfield. The Packers have occasionally given him the ball out of the backfield, and he has taken advantage of the opportunities.
In only three rushes, he has gained 67 yards.
With the injury to Benson, the Packers are looking to get more creative in the running game. Cobb is a great option to give the ball with his incredible speed and quickness.
With a weak Jaguars pass defense, expect to see Cobb make at least one big play this week, if not a few.
