I think you're making a pretty easy decision into a hard one.
Let's rule some of these guys out first. LT and Stew aren't even the starters on their own teams and aren't exactly what I would call great PPR options. See ya, boys!
Murray...hmm. Could be good, but who knows how the Cowboys will actually end up splitting the carries. Has good upside, but way too much downside. In this case. I'm sitting him.
That leaves SJax and Graham.
You mentioned SJax's injury. Do you have some news that I haven't heard? His quad is fine. Start him all day.
Graham is a must-start in any league until Blount is back. He'll catch at least two or three balls (only two last week, but that was more of an anomally than anything) AND he will put up rushing yards. Start the old man.
LT IS starting this week. Now, whether that is a Rex Ryan ploy or perhaps LT doesn't have anything left in the tank AS a starting option is yet to be seen. Yes, high risk.
Stewart is getting more opportunities now. ...more of a 67% /33% split with DeShaun Foster. Will he get better? Perhaps not...we probably saw his ceiling already and we would take his numbers as they are now.
You are probably right with Murray...hate to miss out on anything good though.
They say SJax injury is fine, but he started the season healthy too. He is injury-prone..... plain & simple. Should that factor into my decision? Probably not...but one is weary just the same...I hope his receptions improve with Feeley as the QB
I will start Earnest as my definite #2 ........Thanks for your thorough analysis!
SJax is the best player of the bunch so thats a clear choice IMO. With 2.5 PPR Graham should be a gold mine. I think LT COULD have a good game going against his former team but that a bit of a little gamble. I think the best plays are Sjax and Graham without question.

As a huge Jets fan, I am with you yhat LT is starting, but it's in name only. Rex has been saying all week that he needs to get Greene 25 carries. LT could still do some damage, but it would have to happen on fewer opportunities.
If Stewart is splitting carries with Foster, then DEFINETLY start him--- Foster hasn't been in the league in three years ; ). He's splitting carries with DeAngelo Williams. Neither guy does much because of Cam. He's not useless, but very low upside.
