Start/Sit NFL Week 1

the season is upon us. Starting this a day early but it's labor day and there is no MNF.

I'll get us started:
I need to pick 1 qb for my 2nd qb in a standard scoring league.

Phillip rivers is my first QB and i'm starting him.

I have to choose between Matt Ryan vs the steelers and Carson Palmer vs the pats.




right now i'm leaning towards palmer because the pats should be ahead early and palmer has some good recieving threats. Also, the pats secondary sucks. Not confidant right now in what ryan will do against the steelers secondary.

i like Palmer against the Pats as well. He should be throwing quite a bit in that game.

I'm having a tough time deciding whether to start Mike Wallace or Malcom Floyd in week 1. I also need to choose between Jerome Harrison or Adrian Foster in week 1.

My question is should I start Wells vs STL or Foster vs INDY

I would say Foster, but I dunno for sure.

I have a new predicament.

I need to start two of these. Who?

Moreno vs. Jax
Barber vs. Wash
Hakeem Nicks vs. Car


Who sits?

Foster... dont know how hightower factors into that offense yet, foster is a safe feature back.

I'd sit moreno. He's not 100%, they will probably timeshare a bit, and will want to use the air game against jax.

Foster

Floyd & Garcon

KC had a weak pass defense last year, and Houston's was middle of the road and they lost Dunta Robinson and haven't replaced him with anyone. Cincinnati might have the best starting 2 CBs in the NFL with Hall and Joseph.

i'd go foster. NO will go aerial this week and i think bush is more likely to be in the red zone than thomas because of the passing game.

for the recievers i'd go jones and welker. They're all pretty close but i'm not buying into aromashomania right now and welker is a pretty safe pick.

Berrian and Welker

Berrian is number 1a for now in Minny and Welker will catch 8 - 12 balls almost every week

@ Billy_Shoe and Radar

I'm prob gon with Foster over Jones but WR is stilll tough.

I have Manning as my QB so i got the connection wit Garcon, Welker is good for 8-10 catches, Berrian and Floyd are both #1s and KCs pass D is awful. so idk tough decision.

i like wallace this year as a consistent threat...henderson is boom or bust who will give you 3 good games a year and then donuts for the remaining 13

i wouldn't let kolb's poor pre-season detract you from starting him...a game with green bay should turn into a shootout and i have no confidence in cutler this year

I'm in one extremely deep league. As such, I have this kind of question

Andre Caldwell against the Pats
or
Michael Jenkins against the Steelers

We have .5 PPR, but Caldwell may have TD potential against the Pats secondary.

Percy Harvin (NO, not sure how good Brett is right now, and the same could be said for Percy with his migrains) vs. Dwayne Bowe (SD).

and

Shonn Greene (BAL, tough defense, not sure how he'll respond in his first game as the man) vs. Jerome Harrison (TB, seemingly much weaker defense, plus his offense is much worse so I'd imagine he'd get a lot of touches).

I'm leaning towards Bowe and Harrison, but could be easily swayed.

Seattle's secondary was bottom-5 against the pass last year, and GB has ballhawks all over their D...but could I really, in good conscience, recommend Smith to anyone?

I'd probably go with Kolb b/c Green Bay is going to score points by the truckload and Philly will probably be passing to keep up.

Agreed, simply on the Eagles being likely to have to throw the ball more than the Niners.

Since I know absolutely nothing about the teams, is there a website where I can read about the pros/cons of each teams so I could set the matchups by myself?
