Clusterf***ed lineup

OK, here's where I'm at. I need 2 RB 2 WR 1 flex. Standard scoring:

Jahvid Best
Ahmad Bradshaw
Maurice Jones-Drew
Thomas Jones
C.J. Spiller

Malcom Floyd
Percy Harvin
Jeremy Maclin
(Wes Welker, on bye)

I'm thinking RB and flex: Best, Bradshaw, MJD. WR Floyd seems like a given, but Maclin or Harvin? No Vick so I think less targets for Maclin. Harvin's completely unpredictable with Moss added. Will he get more or less balls thrown his way? If Revis plays, who do he and Cromartie cover?

If you have a better lineup suggestion outside of the WR question, I'm all ears. I started off rolling to 2-0 then got derailed by injuries and poor weeks from a couple stars, down to 2-2.

Nmandi will be on Floyd I suppose. So I'd start Harvin and Maclin at WR. Moss opens up the field for short passes over the middle, Harvin will be playing in the slot. I don't like Maclin that much this week but I think he'll have a better shot of producing than Floyd will. Who'd have thought 5 years ago that Vick at QB would be good for a WR?

I think the Giants are going to want to throw on the Texans and it might be a high scoring game. So I'd keep Bradshaw out.
Rams have sneaky good DEF. But I think I'd start Best, MJD and Jones. We don't know what Spiller's role will be and the BUF line stinks. KC is going to run, run, run the Colts are missing their second string safety now and their run DEF already stunk and they'll try to keep Peyton off the field (of course that goes to hell if the Colts get up two TDs).
