Rap Battle: The Case Against Randall Cobb

8219192516_5677139792_bRap Battle will be a running series that originated out of emails that Money in the Banana Stand’s Shawn Siegele and Frank DuPont/The Fantasy Douche exchange from time to time where they share their thoughts on players.  It’s probably worth noting that the very first time Shawn and Frank ever exchanged emails, it was Shawn telling Frank that Frank was wildly underrating Rob Gronkowski… that was only about 30 Gronk touchdowns ago. In reality, Rap Battle won’t be nearly as exciting as a real rap battle, but it is a better name than “Crossfire for fantasy football.”  Rap Battle may also sometimes border on being conversational. In the first post, Shawn will take the pessimistic view of Randall Cobb.
Folks drafting Cobb in 2013 will be expecting him to be an uninjured version of Percy Harvin 2012 (which just happens to be his most enthusiastic comp in the WR Similarity App). If you could somehow look 11 months in the future and know Cobb morphed into some uber-Welker/Harvin hybrid, it would strain credulity a little but probably couldn’t be considered definitive proof of multiple universes. My WR draft strategy is to exclusively take guys I think could finish No. 1 overall, and such a Welker/Harvin chimera could certainly reach those heights.
