Pick 1 QB:
Peyton Manning vs Pitt
Josh Freeman vs Carolina
Manning here. I know Freeman has the better matchup, but Manning has a point to prove and will throw the ball more. Manning is home and Elway will want a crowd pleaser game from his new QB.
Freeman was bad last year, and I would want to see him in regular season action play at a higher level in order to start him ahead of Manning


Pick 2 WR:
Antonio Brown vs Denver
Eric Decker vs Pitt
Dwayne Bowe vs Atlanta
Pierre Garcon vs Saints
Nate Washington vs New England

The safe plays are with Brown and Decker. However I see huge upside with Garcon. The Saints are going to pile it on and the Skins are gonna be throwing it. Garcon has garbage time potential coming out the wazzo here. You didn't say PPR or not, but Decker and Brown also offer high upside if it is PPR.

Pick 2 RB:
Micheal Turner vs Kansas City
Peyton Hillis vs Atlanta
Jaquizz Rodgers vs Kansas City
Mike Tolbert vs Tampa Bay

I don't love your RB choices here. Hillis and Turner would be my choices, but I would also check the waiver wire for Jennings, or Ridley.

Hey, my opinion below, good luck!

QB - Josh Freeman (I don't favor either QB over the other, but I favor going against Car over Pitt)

WR - Decker and Bowe (Decker's Manning's fav receiver and he's gonna get catches, Big + if you're in a PPR, and in the KC / ATL game, KC will be playing from behind which means Bowe wil get a lot of looks.

RB - I don't think there's much of a questions here, Martin will be taking away a lot from Tolbert, and I wouldn't start both Falcon RB's, Go with Turner and Hillis.
