Thanks for the feedback on mine.

For you I say start AlMo. He makes me nervous because of Shanny's history with his RBBC (can be maddening), but he clearly has the hot hand as his excellent preseason performance carried over into the regular season nicely.

RB2 I'd go Charles, simply because I do not like Ingram at all, Stewart is hurt, and Turner looks like a shell of his former self (Atlanta looks like a pass-first team this year and Turner is getting long in the tooth).

Flex is a coin-toss between Meachem and Bolden IMO. Your other RBs just don't inspire enough confidence to warrant the start. I lean slightly towards Bolden simply b/c the Ravens offense is clicking.
QB: R Griffin III, A Luck
RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green
WR: V Cruz, M Austin, P Garcon, S Moss, B Hartline
TE: J Witten
K: Matt Bryant
D: ATL.

I'd start Turner, Charles, and Boldin. I have Morris on my team, but I'm nervous about starting him until I see what he does in one more week due to Shan's history.

I think Shanny goes with the hot hand, and I would start Morris this week if I owned him. Alon with Charles and Boldin.

Thanks for your help with mine brother!

Thanks for helping with mine.

Fred Jackson getting hurt hurt you for sure. Charles for sure. I'm skeptical about Morris just because of his coaches history with backs, but I don't really see any other option other than trying to sell him high and trying to work around to getting another back somehow. For flex I would say Jackson or Boldin.
