So the FLEX is reserved for either Steve Johnson, Manningham and Benson.

Manningham will have a GREAT year, every game that Nicks gets double coverage he will have minimum 100 yards, when no one gets double coverage, Manningham will have a good day (around 70 yards, maybe a TD) and believe me, Nicks will get double coverage a lot!!.


Please Help,

Stevie or Manningham for sure. Gotta wait and see what NO does with their backs before I give Thomas the nod. I like Stevie a little more because I think he is going to see the ball in the red zone more, and as he demonstrated in the preseason, he can be a deep threat also.

I am a Stevie fan on this one....but I bet the difference in Manningham and him is 2-5 points either way.....I just see him getting a touchdown....and Manningham maybe not getting one.
but I am wrong alot....

Ok I'm going to really throw you for a loop here. This is just me though, so you don't have to listen to me. I would bench Marshall and Wayne and put in Johnson and Manningham. And then make Benson your W/R. Reggie Wayne is a good WR, but we have only known him as being a good WR with one QB, and that's Peyton Manning. I don't trust the Colts, especially since Collins has only been with them for about a month. And as for B Marshall, I wouldn't play him until he shows he can produce. People constantly made the mistake last year of starting him, yet he never proved himself. Not to mention Chad Henne is his QB. Both Manningham and Stevie Johnson have better QB's throwing to them than Marshall and Wayne. And I like Benson against CLE. CInci may really suck, but Benson is going to touch the ball around 25 times a game, because he is all they have.

Interesting scenario you pose to me...

However, Stevie is going up against a pretty tough pass defense in KC, and although Wayne probably won't have Manning, he should catch some balls against HOU's D. Now, I know that they've revamped their defense a bit, and Wade Phillips is at the controls there now...it's a very weird situation cause Marshall is rest the only one I can make a valid point for to start. He has Henne, but with the same QB and a less dynamic running game last year, he still grabbed plenty of passes, good for top 3 in the league. It's also evident him and Henne are on the same page this year, and his three TD count should definitely improve.

Benson was a 13th round STEAL, but i want to see him in action before I make that decision.

What about this:
WR: Marshall, Manningham
W/R: Stevie Johnson

Thoughts everyone?????

In PPR, gotta go with Stevie Johnson against the Chiefs. He's your best talent, and Fred Jackson probably won't do much on the ground. Benson has a good match-up, but I'm wearing of starting Bengals players right now. Even against the Browns, chances are the defense is going to call blitz, blitz, and more blitz against Dalton.
