Lynch or Cohen in Standard WHIR

Recommended Posts

Standard scoring. I'm already starting Hyde and Gore, but I need a flex.


Lynch vs Balt


Cohen vs Min


Leaning towards Lynch, but the big play potential of Cohen on MNF has me second guessing. Any advice is appreciated. Post a link and WHIR if you need it.

Granted I lean towards the consensus, I'll throw out an opposing argument. Bell absolutely crushed the Ravens last week, but their D-line actually played pretty well, while their linebackers got torched on counter runs to the outside. As a Lynch owner, I'm really worried that he simply doesn't have anything left in the tank. I could see the Raiders leaning heavily on him initially with Carr out, and a 14 carries for 33 yards type line being the result. My nightmare is a line like that, plus Richard putting up something like 9 carries for 48 yards with a nice 20-25 yard TD run.


With Cohen, you at least have some boom potential. As Trubisky eases into the game, I could see a lot of drop offs and screen passes to him. Although that doesn't help you as much in a standard league, he could easily end up in that 70-80 total yard range with a TD.
