    10 Team PPR league. Cant decide which 3 RBs and which TE to start this week. Bold indicates who I am currently starting.

    QB (1): Romo, Vick
    RB (2) + Flex (1): Foster, Steven Jackson, MJD, David Wilson
    WR (3): Dez, Colston, Miles, Shorts, Chris Givens, Brian Hartline
    TE (1): Fred Davis, Zach Sudfield, Jordan Cameron

    I'm not too fond of Foster this year. As for the TE's probably Fred Davis because RG3 will be in the pocket more, but Cameron is a good choice too.

    Nice team.

    The starters look good, though all three of your TEs are about equal.
    I actually think CBS, Yahoo, and ESPN are all projecting more points for Sudfield this week vs Buffalo and without Gronk. But who knows with TEs.

    TEs are always hit or miss, Davis is the known but my gut is telling me Brady likes his TEs.

    I had the 6th pick and couldnt decide between him and CJ Spiller, I like Spiller more but I just felt like Foster would get more TD opportunities in that offense. With Brown down now, I am wondering if I should start WIlson week 1. Probably just over thinking things.

    I don't know. I think it's worth considering Wilson. The Chargers had a very good run defense last year (96 yards/game and only 10 rushing scores allowed), and that will probably continue this year. Plus, Foster hasn't played at all this pre-season and has just now started practicing. Wilson, meanwhile, will be facing a lesser run defense, is fully healthy, and can score from anywhere with his explosiveness. Plus, he's the guy...the only guy. And with Nicks and Cruz both not 100%, Wilson, I think, is going to get a LOT of work. I'm not saying you should start him, but Foster is, IMO, not an auto-start by any means.

    All looks good in bold for me. Brady loves his TE if gronk don't start I play sud. Cameron is now in a nurv offense.he loves TE. He is my back up. I'd wait and see how Davis does this first game before starting him.

    Seems crazy to sit your #1 pick but I have a feeling Wilson will score more points, like you said he is the man this week and Kubiak recently said it was going to be a rotation this week.

    Basically you never sit your number one pick - if you do......he never should have been your number one pick to begin with...

    In hindsight I probably should of taken CJ Spiller, I just didnt expect Foster to be there at #6 and made a rash decision.

    Foster will share carries with Tate this week. If it were me, I would definitely start Wilson over Foster.

    True, you shouldn't have to sit your #1 pick, but injuries happen (and no, he wouldn't have been my #1 either). I'm looking at possibly having to sit Roddy White this week, the best reciever on one of my teams. It sucks, but it is what it is.

    Still probably going to lose but glad I went with Foster over Wilson.

    I expected that Wilson might fumble, but what I didn't expect was two fumbles and a trip to the doghouse for the rest of the game. Ouch.
