I would take a bit of a risk and roll with Steve Smith, although Newton might favor his TE's for his first start. If this is a standard-scoring league, Smith has a better chance at producing some nice stats, but if it was PPR, I would relook this situation.

I would definitely go with Meachem here. Its going to be a shoot out and he should be on the receiving end of at least 1 of the TDs Brees throws. Please help with mine.

Personally, I don't see why so many assume NO will have this prolific offense this year. Last year they were bottom end of top 10 and faced only 2 good defenses all season. I don't see much in the way of upgrades on offense either. Also, the two games played against top 10 defenses (Vikings and Steelers) resulted in a total of 24 points,

Meacham had 9 receptions for about 100 yards in two games combined, no TDs.

I just don't see this being a shootout. I think GB wins 27-14 or something like that.

However, to the OP, I think the likelyhood that any of the three score decent ponits this week are pretty slim. I would probably role the dice on Steve Smith because he has the most potential to house one.

Steve Smith with a rookie quarterback just scares me though.

Yes, that's why it's a risk.

Like I said though, the chances that Burleson or Meachem get you more than 5 points is pretty slim. Chances are that Steve Smith won't either but he's more likely to score TDs.

I actually like Burleson here...N.O has too many targets, and Graham is becoming a favorite it seems, which takes even more away from the WR core...

Smith could be good....or he could flop with the RC QB, and poor offense.

Burleson probably wont have a huge game.....but he seems the safest for a average performance.

help w/ mine?

id roll with Meachem... Colston is banged up, and Moore is out.

Theyll likely throw ALOT, so id think Meachem has the highest chance of doing something.
