    I have a lot of mid-tier WRs to fill my final WR spot:

    Steve Smith (CAR) @ ARI
    Johnny Knox vs. ATL
    Austin Collie @ HOU
    Malcom Floyd vs. MIN

    I think Smith with be a big target but have little faith Cam will get him the ball in his first game. Knox isn't a starter but I think the Bears might fall behind giving him more opportunities. Collie isn't 100% and will probably be Collins' third or fourth option though I anticipate a lot of passing. Floyd is the #2 who I think will be the most productive but he's not 100% either and I don't see the Chargers having to pass the ball a ton Sunday to beat the Vikes.

    Thoughts?

    I'd go with Floyd. Whether or not the Chargers will have to pass the ball to beat the Vikings doesn't matter. They will pass the ball, a lot.

    I'd definitely go with Knox or Floyd in week 1. They may not have the most upside but they're the much safer bets IMO. As you said, who knows how Cam will perform in his first NFL game (not to mention he's playing for a team that finished at the very bottom of the league last season). And I wouldn't touch any of the Colts with a ten foot pole right now, aside from maybe Reggie Wayne. I expect more balls to go into the stands than the hands of Colts receivers until Peyton gets back.

    Floyd. No doubt.

    He's the #2 for the Chargers and Rivers threw for 4,700 yards last year. I'd expect Floyd to get close to 1,000 yards and 6-8 TDs.

    I've seen Kerry Collins play so I'd defiantly not play Austin Collie. Collins likes to stretch the field or throw out of bounds. Austin Collie line up in the slot and has concussion issues so you might just wanna dump him or trade him.

    You must have a pretty sweet team if you have Kenny Britt in a flex role. I'm starting Britt on my team.

    I also need some help guys.

    Should I start Hines Ward, Josh Cribbs, Roy Williams or Ochocinco?

    I'm thinking Cribbs might have a big day but I'd hate to see Ochocinco or Williams have a big day and miss out. Please help.

    I'm starting Ochocinco myself, and trying desperately to trade Roy Williams.

    Start Ocho. Dump all other players you just named. They're not going to do well.
