Holmes v. Moore; Stewart v. Lynch

So yeah, welcome to the bye week.

Whom should I start, Lance Moore at Miami or Santonio Holmes v. Minnesota? Moore worries me because he's been injured until now and because Miami figures to make it a low possession game, meaning he won't be on the field for as many plays so he could post some seriously pedestrian numbers. Holmes scares me because he posts sorry numbers every week, and in truth I wonder why I still have him.

While we're at it, Jonathan Stewart v. Buffalo or Marshawn Lynch at Carolina? No comment.

Standard scoring, no PPR.

I'd go Holmes over Moore, but there is still some risk since Jared Allen will be coming for Ben, and I don't know who Ben's LT is but I haven't heard great things about Ben's O-line for a while. I think Minnesota's pass D can be exploited if Ben can get a little time. Moore is a good play if it's going to rain TDs, but I don't see that happening this week.

Lynch at Carolina; Buffalo's D gets Poluszny(?) back this week. Though Stewart's still not a bad play.

I'm agreeing on Holmes and Lynch, and the analysis of why.
Holmes really is a fantasy tease the last two years, isn't he? Big game early in the season, everyone says he's the #1 now and will break out, then he averages about 4 points a game the rest of the way.
