dez/holmes.

keep an eye on dez tho, he may miss monday's game and if he's questionable heading into the weekend, you've gotta get nelson in your lineup, can't chance a zero there.

I think Nelson will get more looks and Stevie is also battling an injury but it looks like he will play. Nelson has gotten a TON of looks these past 2 weeks.

I dont know how many looks he got, but he got 10 rec's for 83yds ... Stevie was still battling that injury last week and he got 8 rec's for 93 yds, so it doesnt seem to really bother him much during game time.

It might be crazy , but I would start both Bills Wrs and play Holmes in flex.

I don't think anyone would argue that NE wont score 28+ this week. That spells shootout to me, and the Bills can and do pass the ball a ton. Both Bills WRs have a nice day in this one. Did you happen to catch how bad NEs defensive backfield was when they played San Diego?? Lots of FF points coming from this one.

This question is complicated because of the two guys on Monday night (Jones, Dez). If everyone was healthy, I'd recommend you start both of your Cowboys and Holmes, but I just don't think you can chance it. Even if you leave your flex spot open until Monday night, you're still risking a 0 if both miss the game. I like the idea of starting both Bills WRs and Holmes. That's the safest route, and it has upside in its own right.
