    I need to start two WRs. I plan on one of them being Desean Jackson, but I am stumped on the other slot. I have Pierre Garcon, Anquan Boldin, and Mike Wallace. I am teetering between Garcon and Boldin. I really don't want to start Wallace until I see some consistency. I could see Garcon being a good start because they will probably need to throw and Green Bay gave up a lot of yards to Boldin last week. Any input is appreciated, thanks.:idk:

    Boldin. He looked like Kaepernick's number one guy. Garcon was nowhere.

    Now for your opinion:

    I have a WR, WR and TE/WR spots to fill. I have the following:
    TE Jermichael Finley Vs. Washington
    WR Antonio Brown Vs. Cincinnati
    WR Mike Wallace Vs. Indianapolis
    TE Martellius Bennett Vs. Minnesota
    WR Mike Williams Vs. New Orleans
    WR Hakeem Nicks Vs. Denver
    WR Calvin Johnson Vs. Arizona
    WR Jerome Simpson Vs. Chicago

    Which three do you choose? I'm leaning heavily toward starting Calvin; but the other two spots?

    I would probably go with Nicks and Bennett. Finley has been out this week with a hurt toe, so that could limit his playing time, Steelers looked awful last week, Wallace needs to prove that he can get open, don't trust Josh Freeman or Christian Ponder (Jerome Simpson is too much of a hit or miss too).

    As for the OP's question, I'd go with Garcon. Boldin had a huge game but he's up against one of 2012's stingiest pass D's in Seattle. Garcon, on the other hand, is playing against the same Packers D that gave up that huge game to Boldin last week. Depending on who you've got at RB, Boldin could be a decent FLEX play, though.

    As for the second poster's question, Calvin is a no-brainer. He's the consensus #1 WR in fantasy and a must-start. As for the other two, I'd go with Nicks and Brown. Nicks topped 100 yards last week and the DEN @ NYG is poised to be a shootout. Brown is on an offense that stalled last week but he's at least got a dependable QB throwing to him and little competition for targets from the the rest of Pittsburgh's thin receiving corps, which is more than can be said about your other options.

    This is my thought process for this week as well. My running backs are Marshawn Lynch, Alfred Morris, and MJD. I always prefer to play a running back in the Flex spot because he's going to get touches, especially those three backs.

    Yeah, those are three big time RBs right there. You pretty much have to play all three.
