    How about we have a thread for those of us with questions of who to start over another player and the likes. I'll start:

    I've got A. Peterson(MIN), MJDrew, and Thomas Jones on my roster; obviously Peterson will be one of my 2 starting RBs. Here's my dilema, do I start MJD who's got good stats against the titans or T.Jones against the dolphins weakened D? I'm leaning towards starting Jones. What do you guys think?

    It's almost a coin flip considering the match ups but I would feel better goin with the guy who gets into the end zone much, much more. MJD

    Well Jones should be running behind an improved O-line and the Dolphins now have to back off the line because Favre is there. The Jags are facing a better defensive team although I think MJD is better than Jones. I think I would go with Jones.

    Now my turn, this is for my 3rd WR but it is important since my #1 is Ocho-Cinco and he's playing against the Ravens... so, who would you start as your 3rd WR... Bernard Berrian (who is now a Viking) against GB or Donte Stallworth against Dallas? Donte lit up the Dallas D last year. I know TFB won't be throwing him the ball but Anderson is pretty decent and the focus will be on Winslow and Edwards.

    I have Thomas Jones too, did you get Leon Washington as well? I have him, and if he's available in your league I'd get him, I just feel like he is the best back on that team and could be the starter if he can handle the reps.

    My question: Hasslebeck or Schaub at QB? I'm leaning Schaub vs. Pittsburgh because all Hass' receivers are hurt and he's playing in Buffalo which is tough.

    I don't like either Stallworth or Berrian this week but I would go with Stallworth.

    I would lean towards Schaub as well. Too many questions in SEA and maybe Schaub puts up a decent fantasy line after the Pit game is out of reach.

    Schaub was the right choice, even though he had 2 picks the 2 garbage time TD's game him more points than Hass.

    Of course I lost because my top 2 WRs did nothing (Colston and Housh) and me TE put up 0 points (Boss, don't ask why I started him).

    What does everyone's #1 lineup look like, just out of curiosity? Here's mine:

    QB: Matt Hasslebeck
    RB: Brian Westbrook
    RB: Thomas Jones
    WR: Marques Colston
    WR: T.J. Houshmanzadeh
    WR: Marvin Harrison
    WR/TE: Patrick Crayton/Santana Moss
    TE: Donald Lee
    K: Nate Kaeding
    DEF/ST: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Thanks for the info. I ended up dumping Stallworth and picking up Muhammad. Good thing since Stallworth didn't even play...
