    I’m starting Greg Jennings but need one more WR….choices are Nicks (tough matchup with C. Finnegan on him), Maclin, MSW, or Demaryius Thomas (tough Indy secondary), what do you think?

    I like Nicks personally. He’s your best bet to score a TD.

    I have to start 1 WR & 1 WR/TE. My choices are Marshall, Nicks, Cooley, or Maclin. I play in a ppr league (.5 per reception) and 10 points for a 50+ TD. I’m leaning toward the first 2. What do you think?

    I’m starting Greg Jennings so far but need one more WR to start…..here’s the options: Nicks (faces C. Finnegan tho), MSW, Maclin, and Demaryius Thomas (tough Indy secondary tho)….what do you think?

    Joe – I would probably go with Marshall and Nicks as wel.
    CJ – I’d go with Nicks. He’s off to a great start and represents the best chance for a TD.

    RB Question for you….I plan on starting Pierre Thomas and probably K. Moreno – I think they’re in for big games, now I need to either start Turner (injury ?) or Mendenhall (tough TB run defense), which one would you start?
