Help with a couple RB/Flex decisions

I'm flip-flopping on my picks for two different leagues this week. I'm asking a lot here, not that I need other people to run my team, but I think there are some interesting decisions here.

League 1, half a point per reception, need 1 RB, 1 WR and 1 RB/WR from this group:

Mendenhall @ TEN
Bradshaw @ IND
B. Jackson vs. BUF
R. Moss @ NYJ
Ward @ TEN
Breaston @ ATL

Right now leaning towards Mendenhall, Jackson, and Ward. Giants might be throwing more and he's still sharing some carries, Moss is on the island, Breaston I could see going any number of ways. FO really likes him this week.

League 2, no PPR, a mishmash of bad matchups and timeshares, need 2 RB, 1 RB/WR, 1 WR:

Greene vs. NE
Brown @ MIN
McFadden vs. STL
Bradshaw @ IND
Williams @ CAR
Ward @ TEN
R. Moss @ NYJ

Here I currently have Brown, Bradshaw, McFadden, and Ward. I could make cases for the other three guys too.

League 1: I like Mendenhall, Bradshaw and Ward, but I could be overreacting to week 1. Play BJax over Bradshaw if you feel more comfortable with that.

League 2: Bradshaw, McFadden, Ward, Moss. Tough call here. I could see going with Williams @ CAR because I think TB might have good field position all day. I don't like Brown @ MIN against that D. Moss @ NYJ is your high risk high reward play. I think NE might try to run the score up big there and seriously try to test out Revis' hamstring.

1. Mendy and Bradshaw at RB. I see BJax as too much of a wildcard this week - he could step in and be Grant 2.0, or he could be Maurice Morris. At WR, I hate sitting Moss, but this is the week to do it; Ward it is.

2. Bradshaw, McFadden (as long as Bush remains limited), and Ward. For the flex, oy. I have a gut feeling Greene redeems himself this week, but it's based on very little.
