Found March 29, 2013 on Razzball Football:
There is a general inkling in fantasy football that the third year of a wide receiver’s career can and usually is their breakout year in the NFL.  Over the course of the off-season, Razzball will take a look at some wideouts heading into their third year in the league and see if they’re a breakout candidate for 2013 fantasy football.  This week we will review Randall Cobb. What a difference a year and an injury can make.  A year after plenty of hype surrounding his rookie year as a draft day sleeper, Cobb was again touted in 2012 as the great draft day diamond in the wee round rough.  And not unlike his rookie year, Cobb had a big week 1 game silencing naysayers about the sleeper hype.  But a funny thing happened that changed the course of his 2012 season compared to 2011.  Namely, injuries.  Injuries that made the Green Bay receiving crew do a bit of a 180 from what fantasy owners have come to expect from the land of the Cheeseheads.  You see, Greg Jennings lived up to his Spice Gi...

Mike McCarthy says the running game has to improve: ‘Our running backs have to get better. It’s as simple as that’

It’s one thing to depend on Aaron Rodger, it’s another to live and die by his arm. It’s a dangerous proposition to think every game could be pulled out by throwing 3/4th of the time. However, the past few years the Packers have done just that, throwing most of the time because the running game couldn’t produce. Coach Mike McCarthy thinks it’s time the running game kicks...
