    Russell Wilson or Big Ben this week?

    I don’t love Wilson on the road, but he could put up a solid game.

    Big Ben has a tougher matchup but he’s at home and I feel like it’s a must win to keep any fraction of playoff hopes alive.

    Jason Campbell is also a free agent in our league…

    Thoughts?

    I’d go with Wilson. He got you this far.

    what do you think of kirk cousins since RG3 is out? i think he is somewhat decent, and they have nothing to lose, perhaps he will shine? basically i have to choose to between matt cassel or kirk cousins…

    Shawn – Ben, I don’t think you need to pick five. Obviously Charles is a given. I’d also go Allen, Morris, Brown and Douglas.
