I'd go Charles. People are scared about Hillis, but Thomas Jones was doing exactly that when Charles was beasting. His value has never been in his red zone touches.

Lend a hand?

Jamal Charles, as has been stated he has been here before; with a high level rb split. The only way I go with Jackson is if you score on TD only and not yardage. Hillis may take his goal line attempts but this is not where Charles value lies. I see ATL giving up more on the ground than the Jets either way.

i like FJax ahead of Charles.

He is the feature back in Buffalo, and they get it to him often and in a variety of ways (runs,passes) could easily see him getting 100 total yards with a TD.

good luck, help me out with my week 1 WR's?

I'd go with Charles and hope for a 20-point game. FJax is good, but coming off an injury too and the Jets have to turn on the defense at some point, right. :-D
10 rushing yards - 1 pt
10 receiving yards - 1 pt
20 passing yards - 1 pt
All TDs - 6 pts (QBs favored)

I like Charles here purely because of the 'home run' threat. Week one, of all weeks, is the week to take a shot on a guy who you like. Fred Jackson may get more touches and be involved more consistently, heck, he's a safer play, but I can see Charles breaking loose for a carry that could get you a quick 12 points. I think Charles does well in week one in his return to the football field.
