2 WRs out of 3

Because a few of my players are on bye, I have to start 2 of the following 3 players. Who do you think?

Pierre Garcon vs. St. Louis
Donnie Avery vs. Indy
Hakeem Nicks vs. Arizona

I know who I'm leaning towards, but I wanted some other opinions. Thanks in advance.

Start Garcon and Nicks. I'm sure this will be the week Avery catches 8 balls for 120 yards and 2 TDs, but I don't trust him as far as I could throw him - and he's bigger than me and probably wouldn't be too keen on a stranger trying to throw him.

Nicks and Avery.

I think the Giants will continue to increase Nicks' role in the offense, much to the chagrin of Manningham owners like myself. Garcon could have 2 TD or 20 yards, and the latter seems more likely. Between Wayne, Clark, Collie, and the Colts taking an early lead, he might only get a few targets. His season high is 3 catches.

Avery's not a great start, but the Rams will have to pass all day, and if any of those passes are completed, Avery has an outstanding chance of catching them. I'd start Nicks for sure. Avery for relative safety, Garcon for boom or bust.
