Randall Cobb for Jimmy Graham

Postby footballmaniac » Fri Nov 16, 2012 12:52 am

I have Cobb and was offer Graham straight up. MY TE is Keller (yes pathetic). I would be left with julio jones, danario Alexander, Kenny Britt as my WRs (need to start 2). Both would be keeper eligible as 6th rounders next year. standard non -PPR scoring - 6 point TD, 1 point per yd. Thoughts?

That was my take at first then I looked a little more at Cobbs numbers and he is been a beast. He is 3rd in points by WR for the season. Thats quite a feat. I am just not sure its all that black and white

Wow, he's 13th in my league. Still I think Graham is the #1 option in NO and when Jennings and Jordy come back it will eat into Cobb's stats.

I go for it.

I feel the added production you get from Graham will more than make up for the downgrade you get at WR. You are probably getting 5-10 points now but can easily get 15-30 points with Graham(I'm not familiar with PPR so it may be more)

Cobb has been productive and may continue, but Graham is a sure thing and Brees finds him in the redzone. I think its a must accept, but I can see why are you hesitant.

I thought I would put it out there for some more comments. This is for a non-ppr with 1 point for 25 return yards. Thats why Cobb is the 3rd best WR in my league (he also receives and rushes). I am still on the fence here, and I need to make a decision. Here are my 2 scenarios:

Trade for graham:
WR Julio Jones
WR Danerio Alexander/Britt
TE Jimmy Graham

Dont trade for Graham
WR Julio Jones
WR Randall Cobb
TE Jermeaine gresham

I say make the trade. Graham is a HUGE upgrade at TE. Cobb is clearly a dynamic player, but remember he's been blowing up with Nelson and Jennings out. Jordy is back this week, and Jennings may be back in time for the playoffs, diminishing Cobb's potential a bit.
