    Tough Decision, Who To Start?

    Yes 8 Team League with Friends, No PPR.

    • I'd start Demaryius Thomas, Jordy Nelson, and Torrey Smith at WR 1,2 and flex. I'd go with AP and McCoy at RB. You could start Mathews over McCoy, but only if you feel you are the underdog. McCoy has a higher floor but a lower ceiling.

    • Welp, I'm kinda taking a shot in the dark with this one but here goes. Both Nelson and Torrey have extremely favorable match-ups, but between those 2 I would probably go with Nelson considering the Jennings injury. I love Torrey and he gets plenty of targets, but those big-play receivers can have a lot of boom/bust potential.

      I would go with Mathews over Ridley. Ridley could easily outperform him, but New England tends to adjust their game week-to-week so considering the game he had last week I think they'll probably adjust to keep Denver off guard. Just a hunch really.Mathews also has a crazy favorable match-up against New Orleans. Jackie Battle just isn't that good but he could end up stealing some goal-line carries.

      So IMO I would roll with Nelson or Mathews. I would guess Nelson has the higher floor (WR1, Rodgers, bad IND defense) but without a doubt Mathews has the higher ceiling (again depending on how much Jackie Battle we see/if he can make it to the endzone without getting tackled on the 1)
