Bryant or Cobb? WHIR

Postby BearsFan65 » Sun Oct 14, 2012 10:07 am

PPR scoring, 15 rec yds = 1 pt. Harvin and Wayne locked in at WR1/WR2. Need to start one of the following at WR3:

Dez Bryant @ BAL - this guy is killing me, but he gets Cary Williams in coverage. Advantage Dez, but....can he do anything with it?

Randall Cobb @ HOU - Jennings is out, Finley is hurt, and Cobb has been getting more snaps/touches. GB will likely have to score points to win this game, so I can see Cobb being used a fair amount, and unlike Dez he's actually playing well.

Who to start, who to bench? WHIR, thanks!

I would go with Cobb, dez could have a big game, but it depends on romo having a big game. Cobb like you said is getting more involved, and a safer play in my opinion. Plus he could bust you a return TD

I would definitely go with Cobb. Bryant has been a major disappointment so far, and injuries have given Cobb a major opportunity.

Here's mine:

Based on talent, you would normally have to go with Dez, but this week I'd go Cobb for two reasons:
1. Rodgers is going to have to throw this week to win (not that he wouldn't anyway) and Jennings is out. Cobb will get more looks.
2. It looks as if Cobb will be used more in the running game with RBs being suspect this week. He may get several looks in the running game as well.
