Demaryius, Cruz, or Cobb?....WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Tue Nov 20, 2012 5:19 pm

10-team .5 PPR with 1 pt for every 50 return yds. 1 pt at 100 return yds.

Caught a desperate owner in need of a RB and he has 3 stud WR and offered any one of them for Ryan Mathews straight up.

I also own Percy Harvin, Eric Decker, Lance Moore, Antonio Brown, Pierre Garcon

Demaryius Thomas - I also own Decker (not sure if it makes a difference). He is a stud and Peyton is playing lights out. Nice schedule

Randall Cobb - Aaron Rodgers new favorite target. No. 1 WR in Green Bay. Also used in the backfield similar to Percy and adds value in return game.

Victor Cruz - Was on fire 1st half of the season. Last 3 games were lackluster. Not sure how I feel about him with Eli playing poorly.

All 3 are studs but not sure which one I want for the ROS

I like Cruz among those WRs. NYG has played some tough passing defenses recently and that has contributed to the Giants passing game cooling off.

I'd say Cobb second and Thomas third, and honestly I like any of them for Mathews value-wise.

BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

I would go Cruz. Cobb has been Rodgers new favorite target, but that could change at any time with how many options they have at receiver. And you already have Decker, who is going to put up just about the same numbers as Thomas. Cruz has had 3 bad weeks, but they are coming off a late bye week and Eli and the Giants get hot in December. I see Cruz having the best ROS of the 3 of them. And like the guy before me said, any of them would be a good trade for Mathews. Please help with mine. viewtopic.php?t=530213

I own cobb and am not sad about not having cruz. Cruz has ton of big play potential but hebhas not been producing. Cruz will come around_you really cant go wrong wifh either but my nod is to cobb

this is the toughest decision I've had to make all year. Demaryius would be a safe pick too since Peyton is throwing for 300 yds and 3 TDs almost every game. Demaryius and Decker probably make up 85% of Peytons production. I wouldn't have to worry about Demaryius getting all the glory leaving Decker twisting in the wind. I may be overthinking

I like Cruz. I think the week off is going to help Eli and they'll get back on track. Next Thomas, then Cobb, but the difference between all of them is so slight, that you can't go wrong no matter who you take. And this is a very good deal for you. Good luck.

You'll do fine with either Cruz or Thomas. I would pick up Cruz.

Yeesh. I'm not making this any easier.

I own Cruz and Cobb. And between them, I'd go with Cobb. You know Rodgers is going to throw and he's got a great rapport with Cobb. I don't know what's up with Eli and Cruz, but I'd go with the guy who's hot. If you need to win out, you can't wait for something to click in a few weeks. I'd go with cobb. If you're stockpiling for the playoffs, then I'd go with Cruz.
