Packers WR Randall Cobb fueled for a big 2014 season

A broken leg is the story of Randall Cobb @rcobb18's 2013 season, but prior to that injury in Week 6, he was building upon his breakout 2012 season with a strong start. He opened the year with back-to-back games with more than 100 yards. In four full games, he had caught 25 passes, gained 403 yards from scrimmage and scored twice. Then he took a low hit with bad consequences.
Cobb returned in Week 17, scoring two more touchdowns, before a mediocre game in Sunday's playoff loss to the 49ers. After the game, Cobb basically said what you want to hear out of every young person who is extremely talented at their job: I want to improve.
"I've got to get better at breaking tackles," Cobb said. "If I want to be a great player -- and not just a good player -- I have to do more. I have to be more. I'm going to take that upon myself this offseason. I'm going to let this pain that I feel right now fuel me to come back stronger and better next season."

Fantasy Analysis:

Cobb was well on his way to posting consecutive top-20 finishes among WRs in fantasy pre-injury. He'll be just 24 years old next season, and with Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 still in his prime, and Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson and Eddie Lacy around to keep defenses honest, Cobb has elite potential next season, especially if his actions match his words.
