In situations like these whenever I have a decent alternative (which Brown is) I like to err on the side of caution. It's so much smarter for the Browns to ease Richardson back this week I just don't see how he gets a full workload. I'd go Brown.

Gerhart vs Jacksonville or Decker vs Pitt?

I'm leaning towards Gerhart because he'll be getting most of the touches on a team with Ponder throwing the ball, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on AP's health.

This one's very close. I'm high on Decker this year, and I don't see AP playing much this week (my guess is he doesn't at all), so it's tough. I think ultimately you gotta go with the guy who is guaranteed probably 15 touches. I'd go Gerhart for this week.

Bradshaw or Donald Brown? Think the matchup might slightly favor Bradshaw, but it's a big toss up. Then again, the Bears give up a ton of yards, so that could favor Brown, even if he can't get into the endzone.

EDIT: ESPN projections suck. After consulting Dave Richard's, I'm definitely going Bradshaw.

Hillis and Washington hands down.

Washington is going up against one of the weakest secondaries in the game, and no Kenny Britt...100% Washington

Hillis is going to get a ton of work early on, especially goal line work, ALWAYS go RB over TE/WR at flex....unless your flex is Jimmy Graham ofcourse!!

Hillis and Washington for me

I am not big on either, but I think Bryant steps up on opening night and has a big game. It seems Romo always has a big game against the Giants, and Bryant is going to be his likely top target.

Bryant for me

I like Richard the least of the 3 (Richard, Zagura, Eisenberg)...but he is right, go with Ahmad

Haden is suspended for week 1 (unless it was appealed), which definitely helps Jackson. Jackson's my pick there.

Alright, Rivers or Romo? Giants D is better than the Raiders D, but Romo, imo, is better than Rivers. This is a tough one for me.

Romo has a bad O-Line and the Giants have a great pass rush. If you play matchups, I'd go Rivers.

I've got DeAngelo Williams at my flex this week, going against Tampa's D, and with Stewart's health issues. Is he going to get enough touches to do better than, say, Redman? Or should I go WR with Holmes in that spot?

they are saying Stewart might now play, but I think DeAngelo is a killer play as a RB 2, and you have him as your flex...nice

NEVER EVER GO WITH HOLMES!

that dude is practically worthless until Sanchez shows he can throw the ball...staying away from almost all the Jets except Shonn Greene who will carry the rock a ton...though he doesnt do much with it.

it is actually a nice issue to have as I usually target either of those guys as my starter with Luck as the backup...

Romo always plays killer against the Giants, but without Witten and with Austin still not 100% I would go with Rivers in this once, especially against a weaker defense...

I dont think you will regret either to be honest, but Rivers could be top 8 this week, while Romo is likely around 11-13 range
