    Who to Start - Week 1

    I have two decisions that are close enough to ponder on. Curious what you guys think:

    Reggie Bush (vs. MIN) or Darren McFadden (vs. IND) - I drafted Bush higher and am planning to go with him but I could see DMac having a very big day as well.

    Reggie Wayne (vs. OAK) or Hakeem Nicks (vs. DAL) or Miles Austin (vs. NYG) - Same as above - planning to start first two. Kind of have to start Wayne vs. the Raiders but the other two are very close IMO. With Cruz out, Nicks should get a lot of looks but that works both ways.

    At least I'm not going against Peyton this week

    Thanks. He's listed as questionable but I guess Coughlin is going BB-mode with his injury report. I need to start two of the WRs but I think Wayne and Nicks, leaving Austin on bench. That might bite me a little but I can't see any reason to prefer Austin over Nicks at this point.

    McFadden is the play here. Minn defense is stout against the run which Reggie doesn't do particularly well anyway. Therefore, his points this week will probably come through the air on screens and flats; not something you want to bank on in that offense from your RB2/Flex.

    For maybe the first time ever, I agree with JWN about something. Wayne is the play over nicks and austin simply because of volume of plays towards the receiver. Romo and Eli just find whoever a open. Luck, unless he's progressed from last year, still locks onto Wayne more often than not at crucial moments or when he needs a play.

    McFadden v. IND

    Wayne v. OAK and

    Nicks v. DAL

    Agreed with everyone. I'd go with McFadden, Wayne, and Nicks.

    I'm having a hard time deciding on my one flex spot, as well. I have it narrowed down to McFadden vs. Indy or Tate vs. Carolina. Thoughts? Leaning slightly towards DMC at the moment.

    McFadden has been awful. Tate has been real good. Your taking the reputation of mcfadden over the production of tate. Not a good philosophy my friend.

    I'd go with Cruz, Hilton, and DJax. Jones and DJax is a tough decision for me, but I like Philly/Wash to be a shootout. GB's offense is GB's offense, but that's still a real tough match-up.

    Another tough one, but I go with Cameron.

    I agree with what's been said before with one change.

    DevJetsYanks88... Tate over McFadden (Just barely . Tough call for me.)

    Joe W. Namath... Cruz, Hilton, and DJax. But I'd say Daniels overs Cameron. Cameron has looked good over the preseason & lots of potential, but Daniels to me is a proven commodity.

    Not to hijack further, but I could use some help too. Need a #2 Receiver: Garcon, Boldin, or DJax (#1 Receiver is Julio Jones, Flex Spot is RB D. Wilson).

    I narrow it down to Garcon and DJax. I like them both better than Boldin and I like them matched up against each other. Explosive players and what could definitely be a shootout of a game. Between the two, I pick Garcon.

    I pretty much was thinking the same. The only reason I was considering Boldin is because who else does San Fran have to catch the ball at WR?

    I think WAS v. PHI is gonna be a shootout. But all the hype about Chip Kelly's still unknown offense scares me. And I think McCoy beasts this week, so Garcon seems like the choice. Just needed someone's reassurance.

    Thanks.

    Same to you. The only thing as great as football being back is fantasy football being back too.
