    Hey all, I am the 5 seed in my FF league.

    I am debating about starting Randall Cobb or not. Currently my lineup is as follows:

    Cam Newton

    Adrian Peterson

    Mikel LeShoure

    Reggie Wayne

    Josh Gordon

    Vernon Davis

    James Jones is my flex.

    On my bench I've got Cobb with Malcolm Floyd and Santana Moss. Frank Gore is my benched RB vs. the Patriots.

    Cobb isn't projected to have a big game, but to me projections don't mean anything. I try to think about the game in realistic terms. Realistically I think the Bears are going to game plan for Cobb and Jennings. I think that leaves James Jones to have a big game.

    That being said, Cobb is a playmaker and if he can get a small seam in the defense he can explode through it. Although he had 0 touchdowns last week he still had 102 yards receiving and ALMOST had about 120. So...as you can see I am pretty torn here.

    What do you guys think? If this were you, and you were in the playoffs would you start Cobb? All bias aside, give me your HONEST answer!

    What makes you say that? Lack of faith in Jones or lack of faith in Bears D to stop Cobb? Also, do you feel like I should keep Josh Gordon in there, or sub in Jones for Gordon?

    Still should always start Cobb, but definitely Jones over Gordon. Then again the only player I can trust on the Browns is Richardson and their D

    I beat my opponent by 4 points! YESSSSS! I was SO scared because Reggie Wayne, Josh Gordon, and Vernon Davis ALL had terrible fantasy days. Adrian Peterson and the Packers D literally saved my bacon this week.

    i start Cobb on a weekly basis. He's usually good for at least 7-10 points some weeks more.

    Also AD will be running the ball constantly as he's trying to break Dickersons record. I'v got AD on my team as well. The last 3 weeks he's avg about 28+ points

    B/c I can only start 2RBs & Trent Richardson is my other starting RB. Anything else?

    Because LeShoure was going against ARZ and Gore was going against NE.
