I'm probably starting Steven Jackson. Had a nice week last week and they admitted they shouldve gotten him the ball more. With Amendola looking questionable, Rams will have to ride SJax. Blackmon is your high risk, high reward guy. If you need to make up some pts from Thursday, I don't think hes a bad play. Henne is throwing him the ball, but I think SJAX is the safest.
I started Foster and Morris in my RB slots. I have Cruz and Larry Fitz in my two WR slots. Who do I start at flex?
Torrey Smith or
Or should I switch out Fitz with one of the other WRs since Lindley is getting the start?

Somethings telling me Parmale is going to have a good week. Don't know why, seeing that Jennings did nothing for the past 6 weeks. I don't like Gordon this week. Pittsburgh D is too much and Torrey Smith isn't my favorite in PPR leagues. I would check out his game last year against SD to really make a decision on him. He is the best fantasy player of the 4. Id probably start Parmale but Rice is another safe play against a shaky Dolphins defense.

I'd start Moore. So-so game last week but he is very involved in the offense and Cincinatti doesnt scare me too much. I think Torrey is your homerun guy if you need him but I'd go Alexander over him. Hes been too consistent lately to bench. Torrey isnt a lock in PPR leagues and is a better standard league player.

I dunno, everyone is excited about Blackmon. One game doesnt do it for me tho. Normally, I'd start Wallace over all these guys. I do think they have to get him involved. However, he will face up with Joe Haden. He is far from a lock this week. Rice is the safest bet this week, however Seattle plays terrible on the road. Since Henne is out there, I'd feel decent about starting Blackmon. Theyve fallen behind in every game and hes gotta get more involved going forward. Normally Wallace would be the guy I'd slot in, but you can go Rice over him. Id sit Hilton. Although hes been good lately, Avery is still looking like he will play this week. Too many guys competing for looks. Britt hasn't blown up or done much lately so I'd prob sit him.

It really is a tossup. Safer bet is Ballard. Depends where your team stands this week. I dunno if Ballard makes big plays, where I think Hillman could. I'd go Ballard if your in good shape, but neither are great options for a TD. Hillman is the risky play, but could reward you this week. For me, I'd keep Hillman on my bench and see how the scenario plays out.
I'm starting A. Morris and A Peterson at RB.
I have V. Jackson, M. Colson, and V. Cruz at WR with two slots.
M. Reece is on my bench.
Who do I start at WR (2 Available slots) and who do I start a Flex (1 Available slot)?

This week since its a PPR league, I like Reece over Colston. You cant bench VJAX, and I wouldnt bench Cruz. Colston is definitely a guy you can bench against the 49ers. He could do well, but give Reece another shot. Hes only done well since getting the start and he is a tool in the passing game.

For the WR, It really becomes a tossup. I mean, they all could have good games, and they could all have bad games. For Sunday, I'd go with Nicks. I think the bye week does him well and you should see a shootout. I dunno about Fitz or Wallace. Both should be your starters but both have no name QB's throwing to them. I'd toss up between the two or go with Alexander. I'm not super believer in Alexander but numbers don't lie. I would definitely leave Moore on the bench in a non-ppr league.
For the RB, I'd probably go Bradshaw/Brown (whoever starts, assuming Bradshaw I'd start) and I'd go Parmele. I just don't know what to think about Mendenhall at this pt of the season. They will run a lot but Redman and Dwyer are playing too.
I'm confused on your last question. You have them both and wanna bench one? Start them both or bench 49ers. Don't bench Brees.
