RB1: Doug Martin vs. PHI RB2: Stevan Ridley vs. HOU WR1: Demaryius Thomas @ OAK WR2: Eric Decker @ OAK WR3: Pierre Garcon vs. BAL Flex: Knowshon Moreno @ OAK
BN: Lance Moore @ NYG BN: Antonio Brown vs. SD BN: Fred Jackson BN: Alex Green
I am pretty sure I want to keep Knowshon Moreno in the Flex as he is an every-down back getting 20+ touches. I generally don't like putting all my eggs in one basket (Bronco Offense). I did it last week and Decker burned me. I just know the week I bench him he will blow up for 2 TDs. Lance Moore has been productive but Giants have been good vs. no. 2 WR though I do smell a shootout. Antonio Brown gets Ben Roethlisberger back and is a great bet for catches and yards but a poor bet for a TD. Do I keep Decker in there and hedge my bets with the Broncos Offense, or take Decker out for Lance Moore?

That's a tough one. I know it's easy to get nervous about playing a whole offense, but you really have to ignore that and take each player one by one. Do you think that Decker will get good points against the Raiders? If so, then play him - don't worry about the other players.
That said, personally I would go with Moore. He just has such a good upside, plus is seeing way more of the ball than Decker. The Giants might be doing well against #2 WRs, but their pass defense really isn't all that, and the Saints offense is far more complicated. In addition (and this is a personal thing) I just hate the feeling when you play lots of people on the Thursday night game. If someone on either your or your opponent's team has a bad game, you have less opportunity to adjust/play safe.
Moore easy. I had Colston and Moore and traded Moore for Scott Chandler in my free league weeks ago and I do not even have Chandler on my roster. Colston was the smart choice but Moore has been lights out better than him recently. Decker has not done nothing in a month. Stick with Moore.
