    Default Cobb/Sproles for Spiller/Jeffery

    PPR league. Just lost this week so moved to 2 - 4. And now with Cobb going down for 6 to 8 weeks I was just offered this. I can see Spiller as an upgrade over Sproles, not this year but next but is it a bigger drop off from Cobb to Jeffery?

    I'm looking towards next year now with my injuries piling up.

    tough one. Sproles has the least value of the 4 since he is 30. Jeffery and Cobb are both 23 and while Cobb is better and has a better QB, Jeffery is no slouch. He's young and he's big and strong. Spiller is the wildcard here. He seems younger than he is...he's already 26 years old and the age of 27 is when RBs supposedly start to decline. Normally, I would think a guy like him that doesn't have years of tons of carries would decline at an older age, but he's so injury prone and has such a tough time staying healthy, it's tough to trust him. It's a tough call and is really about your evaluation of Spiller and how much you are willing to gamble on his upside, because he does have upside. I may be able to give you a more definite answer if you show your entire roster and how many you keep.

    Why would anyone keep lees than 3 if you are allowed to keep 3? I'm assuming yours are Martin,Cobb,and Romo? Martin is a lock obviously. If it's smart to keep a QB then Spiller and Jeffery wouldn't both be keepers. If that's the case I would hang on to Cobb here. Him and Rodgers have a lot of chemistry that could make Cobb a top fantasy option at WR for years.

    If it's only a keep 3 and you don't think you have much of a shot at winning thisyear then I would stick with Cobb here as well.

    Think Jeffery has great upside but assuming Cobb regains his form, he is your guy
