    Okay fellas, my team is pretty good and I know it's a good problem to have, but I'm in a PPR league and I have 5 guys and I have to pick 3 of them to start. Choices are:

    Benjarvis Green-Ellis vs. CLE - Really like how many touches he gets and he looked pretty good against a tough Ravens D, but the Browns D also looked real tough against the Eagles. All in all, I think hes a tough one to sit.

    Steven Ridley vs. ARZ - Obviously another sleeper pick I had. Lots of touches week 1, but its always hard to predict a Belichek offensive game plan. Looks like a better matchup than Benjarvis, but its riskier.

    Pierre Garcon @ STL - Looks to be RGIII's favorite target, although with limited action, he had 20 points in the first quarter of the Saints game before leaving with a foot injury. Another tough sit if he plays because of the targets and matchup, but I CAN ONLY PICK 3.

    Ahmad Bradshaw vs TB - Looked pretty containable against da boys, but we can do that to RB's :) He still racked up some yardage and points with that TD. TB looked tough against the dangerous run game of the Panthers, but I'd assume the Giants will be giving him his touches.

    OR

    Steven Jackson vs WASH - Not the best of matchups, but it is Steven Jackson who is still one of the best backs in the game. He gets receptions and his share of carries, but I really don't know what to make of this game.

    I know I have 2 rivals from the NFC east and it makes me hate playing them, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

    Pick 3.

    Who ya got?

    Stephen Jackson is the clear first pick, IMO. Then BJGE, then Ridley. Garcon is hurt, so I wouldn't risk it. Bradshaw has a tough matchup.

    You'd be surprised.

    FWIW
    If you compile Fantasy RB rankings this week from NFL.com, Yahoo, ESPN, and CBSSportline and SI.com, you get

    9th) Ridley
    13th) BJGE
    16th) Bradshaw
    17th) SJax


    in that order.

    Not saying that's how it will go, but that's what the so called experts are saying.

    I don't know where Garcon fits in....he comes in at about #20 in the WR ranks and is battling a slight injury. His upside seems good though.

    Is that PPR or standard scoring?
