#52-2012 Randall Cobb WR-Green Bay Packers Thanks to Greg Jennings not playing much in 2012 it opened the door for Randall Cobb to breakout in 2012. Cobb had 80 catches for 954 yards and 8 touchdowns.  There is no reason not to believe that Cobb will not be a factor in the Packers offense again this season, the real question is who will be the bigger factor Cobb or James Jones.

Retro #52-Marty Booker WR Chicago Bears- This was the second consecutive great season by Booker catching 97 balls for 1183 yards and 6 touchdowns. After 2002 Booker would never catch more than 55 balls after going 100 and 97 in consecutive season, but for two years it was great to he a fantasy football homer with Booker.

Looking Ahead

ESPN– Pierre Garcon-WR Washington Redskins- Garcon will be a sleeper in most drafts if everyone is looking at stat sheets at the last minute.  Garcon was electric with RG3 the few times he was healthy and on the field. If Garcon plays 16 games he’s a top 10 fantasy WR!

CBS-Matthew Stafford-QB-Detroit Lions- Stafford came 33 yards short of throwing for consecutive 5,000 yard seasons.  Stafford when healthy has been a great fantasy quarterback. This ranking shows how deep the fantasy quarterback position is and why you don’t need to reach for one in your draft when Stafford is ranked 52nd player overall.
