Your RB's are a mess with two with serious injury concerns and two on the same team splitting carries to the tune of about 60/40 I would guess. That being said you'll get more touches with Forte over Bush so I would start bush. I guess Bradshaw is healthy for week 1, we'll see how long that lasts so I think I would go with him to. You should look for another back so your not starting Forte/Bush every week with Bradshaw and Mathews sitting around injured.

WR - CJ, Smith, and Maclin. I would wait on Thomas (see how Manning does) and Wallace (see how he does in new offense).

At RB: Forte is a must in any PPR. Mathews would be a better play than the rest based on talent, but he's not until Monday and who knows about his shoulder just yet. I'd go with Bradshaw, who is solid when he's healthy, and he is.

At WR: I agree on CJ and Smith, but I think I would start Thomas over Maclin, but only because I think Peyton will be looking to make a statement in week 1, and Thomas will be the benificiary.
That being said, Maclin against Cleveland wouldn't hurt ya.

The key to a winning season is focusing on one opponent at a time. Winning one week at a time. Never look back and never look ahead.
