I’m more Harvin than Sproles Juan…

The Packers will be without Greg Jennings for at least a week, if not longer.  It’s time for their young WRs to step up.  James Jones will replace him in the lineup, but who will have more fantasy value.

James Jones is a guy who I joke is the fantasy player that gets you 3 in your lineup or 20 on your bench.  I am not too far off.  Week one he finished with 81 and a TD.  Jennings out in week 2, Jones finished with 2 rec for -1.  Last week no one even considered him and he had 5/56/2.  Now, can he step up when the pressure is on to do so.

Randall Cobb was heavily involved in weeks 1 and 4 with 16/133.  Weeks 2 and 3, not so much.  The Packers say they want to use him in a ‘Darren Sproles’ type role.  In PPR leagues this week, I think Cobb will be a good option.  These guys need to step it up with Jennings sidelined.  Who will it be?
