James Jones gone in free agency and an expanded role in store this year. Pierre Garcon of the Washington Redskins led the league in receptions last year with 113, and the league leader in receptions has routinely been well over 100 as the league's offenses have become more pass-oriented over the last decade or so.
Cobb's injury came a few weeks before quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined for essentially eight games by a left collarbone injury, so his reception pace may have fallen off significantly even if he had stayed healthy. Under the assumption he and Rodgers both stay healthy, Cobb is in line for 100-plus receptions this year even if he doesn't ultimately finish as the league leader.
