    Yeah I think I'd lean toward starting the two Tes as well. Maybe Thompkins? I don't think I'd be giving any of those backs much consideration.

    I'd go both TE. I have that issue in a couople of my league but that would require me benching ridley

    I know... I was just listing all my options even though I don't think I'd be able to play any of those RBs other than maybe on bye hell week.

    Thompkins was horrible on Sunday and will be covered by Cromartie now. I was very disappointed in him. I thought he'd come up big against the garbage Bills.

    I've got a much tougher choice to make in another money league...

    Dwayne Bowe or Torrey Smith?

    I could also start both of them and sit Boldin, but he is an automatic start for the time being - even when facing Richard Sherman.

    Another tough one...

    W/R/T - Tavon Austin, Kenbrell Thompkins, Rueben Randle, Harry Douglas

    Leaning Austin for the upside and potential to explode... we know Cook won't have that type of game again, but maybe Austin could.

    Tavon Austin, Kenbrell Thompkins, or Marlon Brown? PPR.

    Thompkins seems like the obvious guy and I don't think he can play worse than last week but I'm worried he'll see his snap count go down for their 2 other young WRs. I like Brown against CLE because Haden will be on Smith, so Brown should do pretty well. Austin in PPR will be valuable this year but want to see more of him.

    Bowe, Smith is facing Joe Haden.

    Picked up Pryor to start against JAX over Wilson against SF. Hope it pays off.

    Austin.

    Brown is intriguing since like you said, Torrey Smith will be covered by Joe Haden. Thus, Brown will be covered by... who?

    Tough call, but I'd roll with Austin.

    Thompkins is not a good play this week IMO. He'll be seeing Cromartie. Sure, Cromartie is overrated, but he's way beyond Thompkins level and should have no problem on him.

    Now that is ballsy... I think you will regret this one.
