    Derrick Mason vs. Colts
    Jimmy Smith vs. Broncos
    Rod Smith @ Jags
    David Terell @ Pack
    Kerry Colbert @ Chiefs

    I can start 2. Mason is a no-brainer. But the second WR is a tough call. Jimmy Smith will have to deal with Champ all game, so im not sure on that one. Rod Smith is a little older, and not at home. Terell is going up against a team with 2 great CB's, and Colbert is a rookie.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd go with Rod Smith. The Jags secondary is a glaring weakness. They have Juran Bolden starting. Smith played well against the Cheifs last week, and I'd say the Chiefs CBs are better than the Jags. Kerry Colbert could struggle due to the loss of Davis. Foster will play well, but the Panthers OLine has question marks, and with the blitzing nature of the Cheifs D Delhomme may not have time to find him.

    I have a similar WR problem in my FFL. I chose to sit Plexico Burress against the Ravens because he could get shut down, and I expect it to be a low scoring affair between the two teams. Darrell Jackson is a lock for me against TB, and then I went ahead and put Roy Williams and Donald Driver in to start as well. Williams is my question mark because he could be a no show if the Texans' defense plays well. Driver had an okay game against Carolina, and I expect him to do well against Chicago. I have a few WR's on the bench, and I've thought about starting one of them in place of Roy Williams.

    WR Wilson SF going against Saints
    WR Givens NE going against Cards
    WR Clayton TB going against Seahawks

    I have a tough time thinking any of them will have a bigger day than Roy. Givens could agaisnt the Cards, but then again the Patriots spread the ball around alot. Wilson is very intriguing because he gave me pretty good numbers last week against Atlanta, and the Saints don't have a great secondary but do have a very good D Line. Clayton will likely get smothered by the Seahawks DBs. I'm going against Vinny this week, and any help would be appreciated.

    I'd start Roy Williams....

    Yeah, who do I start:
    Darrell Jackson who is playing Tampa Bay or Donte Stallworth who plays the 49ers???

    And in another league which two should I start: Roy Williams, Travis Henry (WR/RB option), Peter Warrick, or Reggie Wayne. I am think Roy Williams at the WR spot and Travis Henry at the WR/RB option spot but I dont know if Wayne should start...

    I'd play Stallworth. The 49ers defense will be on the field alot, and I look for them to break down. Jackson could have a good day against the Bucs with Alexander out, but I think that their secondary has an edge over San Fran's.

    I'd be tempted to start Warrick because of how bad Miami is, but they stil have a great set of CBs and Safeties. Roy wouldn't be a bad pick, but you can't go wrong with Reggie Wayne when he's got Peyton Manning throwing him the ball. I'd definately start Henry at the WR/RB because he's going against Oakland, and their run D didn't look good against the Steelers. He could have a good game.
