With Reggie Bush on a bye, I'm starting 3 WR, here's what I have to choose from, some have great matchups.
Jordy Nelson @ STL (going against Great corners though) Mike Williams vs NO (almost any WR is a good play against the Saints) Kenny Britt @ BUF (risky player, but kind of the same situation as williams, Bills pass defense is bad) Dez Bryant @ CAR ( could have a big game, might want to start him Brandon Gibson vs GB Devery Henderson @ TB Torrey Smith @ HOU (not a good play in my opinion)
I have a similar dilemma this week with questions between Britt and Nelson (starting Wayne and Gronk). Last week was awesome with Nelson but he won't put up production like that every week and like you said he is up against Finnigen who has shut down Megatron, Fitz and Marshall this year. I am going to start Britt against a terrible Bills secondary in a game that stands to be a shootout with loads of deep balls for TD's.
With you, I'd go Britt, Bryant and Smith but since you don't like Smith, maybe take Nelson or Williams instead.

I think it depends on your mindset. I would say that Nelson and Williams are definite. GB's #1 and you know that Rogers will throw 3 TDs. NO pass def is garbage as you pointed out. I would choose #3 between Bryant and Gibson. I believe Bryant has the bigger upside and poses the biggest risk. If you are comfortable with a guaranteed 10 points then Gibson is the #1 for STL and they WILL be throwing all day. I lean towards Bryant as the 3rd but he is a risky head case as you are well aware as an owner. Mine; viewtopic.php?f=19&t=526739
I just have a gut feeling based on the matchup, and his performance last week that Williams has to start. I think Britt, also based on the matchup. I want to start Gibson, but I think it's hard to trust a Ram, then again, GB isnt very good against the pass. I just have a bad feeling about nelson.
I guess I should have taken my friend's advice, and gone with the players whose names ended in SON. Nelson, Henderson, and Gibson were top performers of the group, though no one really did spectacular after nelson.
I just need Matt Forte to score at least one sixteenth of a point tonight...
