Welcome to the Cafe ;-D
I would go Miles Austin at WR. He is still Romos' favorite target on the outside. Also Blackmon is a risk with Gabbert. At running back I prefer Jamaal Charles. He had plenty of time to heal. I am not worried about his touches as much because of his career average of 6.1 yards per carry.

I would go with Lynch due to matchup. As for Blackmon and Austin, well Gabbert was awful last year, this year he can only go up and I know it's only one game, but him and Blackmon seem to have something building. Austin is also battling injury and although he is apparently supposed to be fine for week one, I think the gap between Blackmon and Austin might be closer than other think. Depending on what amount of players you start at each spot, I might consider putting both Austin and Blackmon.

The other thing to consider here, is that the Cowboys play the defending champs. It may not matter so much here, but in every game since the NFL started having the defending champs in the first game of the regular season, the champs haven't lost.

If Austin is healthy start him over Blackmon. I like JChaz over Lynch.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

I agree that IF M. Austin is healthy start him, but his hammy will probably only last one game, like last year. All Gabbert will have to throw to is Blackmon...and M. Lewis. So, Blackmon will be good to go from then on. Also, I would start Marshawn week one until you know what Jamaal will show up this year. Week one doesn't win you a championship...it's like our preseason. Figure out what you have and go from there.

If Austin is healthy start him over Blackmon. I like Jamaal Charles because KC play at home.
