B.Brown or SJAX, 2 of L.Fitz,D.Alexander,M.Crabtree,S.Rice?

So, Yahoo!, CBS and ESPN all have Bryce Brown projected better than Steven Jackson in Wk. 14 (albeit by 0.2 in CBS in 0.1 in ESPN), but the Bills have given up the most points to opposing running backs in the NFL by Yahoo! default scoring -- surely the guy I picked at 3.3 in the draft is the way to go, right?

I am similarly conflicted at WR. In addition to Julio Jones, I own Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Crabtree, Danario Alexander and Sidney Rice. Of the non-Jones group, Alexander and Rice have been the most productive the last 4 weeks. Y! recommends Fitz and Rice. CBS prefers Crabtree and Alexander. ESPN likes Fitz and Crabtree. (Fitzgerald is especially confusing -- the guy's been worth like 6 points TOTAL for the past 4 weeks, but it feels hard to bench a second-round pick.) So um... yeah, pretty much feeling like that's a toss up too?

Wk. 14, 14-team default scoring Yahoo! league... Who would you start?

QB: Aaron Rodgers, (Matt Schaub)
RB: Doug Martin, ____________, (____________), (Knowshon Moreno)
WR: Julio Jones, ____________, ____________, (____________), (____________)
TE: Martellus Bennett
K: Garrett Hartley
DST: Atlanta, (San Diego)

RB/WR options: Steven Jackson, Bryce Brown, Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Crabtree, Danario Alexander, Sidney Rice.
BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

I'd have to agree with above although I believe Rice, and Crabtree are better options I've Fitzgerald no matter who's the QB in Arizona. I believe as hard as it is to that this is a lost season for Fitz.
QB: R. Wilson RB: T. Richardson RB: A. Morris
WR: M. Colston WR: A. Boldin WR: J. Gordon
TE: V. Davis K: C. Sturgis DEF: Minnesota
BN: M. Jones-Drew BN: G. Bernard BN: K. Moreno
BN: T. Williams BN: P. Harvin BN: C. Kaep BN: G. Olsen
BN: G. Jennings PPR

I agree with the previous post. Bryce Brown is the RB you want, and I would go with Crabtree and Rice for your WRs. Fitzgerald has a QB issue, and Alexander is going up against the Steelers D. Good luck and thank you for helping me with my post.
