    Tough Decision, Who To Start?

    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)
