Help me parse my limited RB/WR options in super-deep PPR league

I play in a super deep 12-team league, 1 QB, 1 any offense spot(usually a QB), 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 RB/WR.

I've got to decide between Evans, Bess, Chambers and maybe Hester for the 3rd WR spot and Wells and Hillis (and all the WRs, I guess) for the RB/WR. Evans has a pretty terrible matchup vs GB, but the other guys don't have great matchups themselves and aren't gonna get the volume of targets that Evans will. Wells obviously has a bad matchup as well, and I don't know how many receptions he'll get given his limited blocking/catching abilities if/when the Cards start losing but I'm not a big Hillis fan. Right now I'm inclined to start Evans and am 50-50 between Hillis and Wells. Any advice?

I'd go with Hillis for the RB. Not only does Wells have the bad matchup, but still coming off of injury and with Hightower still getting touches, I'd stay away for one more week. It seems like Mangini is 50-50 about Hillis as well, but the matchup is great and he's the goal-line back, so he should get something.

The WRs are tough. I'd say Evans for the reasons you give - you know they're at least going to try and get him the ball. He's also the one most likely to benefit from a lucky blown coverage, so there's that, I guess.
