12 team H2H, 0.2ppr just need to start one of these guys. Watching Russel Wilson, in tempted to start Rice against the Cards.....Brown would normally be the choice, but on the road in Chicago scares me. I do feel Olsen will be involved more this year, and the matchup with TB is nice. Thoughts?

After doing a bit of 'looking up' on these guys I see your quandary. There is no real good, solid, answer. Go with your gut. My gut say Olsen, but you have been following these guys longer then I have. I do like the TB match-up and I think Olsen may be the "safest" bet.

I agree with Solak in saying that there's no solid answer, but you already knew that since that's the very reason you're asking for help. It's the beginning of the season and we have no real indication on how everyone is playing, unless of course, you value what the preseason shows, which I personally don't. Anyway, due to this, I always go with the safer choice, which in my opinion this time is Olsen. The match up with TB is good, and Cam's a beast. There's not many mouths to feed in Panther's camp, so Olsen should get a good amount of looks coming his way.

Olsen.

I agree with Olsen. If Indy was not playing the Bears then it would be Brown as I think the Colts will lean on the running game a little more than they did when Peyton was calling the plays.

I would start Brown. touches touches touches. The other guys aren't guaranteed more than about 2 touches. Seems like a no brainer to me.

Thanks on mine!

I'd go Olsen.

Considering its mainly a TD league, he's got the best bet IMO to have a shot at scoring and should be Cam's #2 option behind smith.


Help me out with my week 1 TE?

I always go with a RB in my flex as they are second only to the QB to get the ball. It's all about opportunity to get you points. I'd vote for Brown. The other guys could get blanked but you know that won't happen with Brown.
Thank God for Football Season.
