Knowshon Moreno

I think I'm going to have to sit Knowshon Moreno this week, as he's just too big a risk either not to play at all, or to wind up platooned. I grabbed Correll Buckhalter off waivers in my league, just to protect against this, but I'm not sure he's a good idea to start either. I've got a flex slot free, so I can start any of the following:
Knowshon Moreno @Cin
Correll Buckhalter @Cin
Torry Holt @Ind
Felix Jones @TB
Domenik Hixon v. Was
Ted Ginn Jr. @Atl

So, think Moreno will play? Is Buckhalter going to get enough touches to be worth the start? Or do I pull up one of my benchies (Holt, FJones, Hix, Ginn)?

Forgot to mention it's a PPR league, 1/10 yd both rushing and receiving.

Moreno is questionable, but they do love him in Denver. It is week one, and one of the most difficult weeks to pick your lineup because of all of the unknowns. I'd say it really doesn't matter, all have a pretty close expected value and you might see a difference of one to two points. If Moreno plays, I'd start him (so watch the pregame and set your lineup then). If he doesn't play, the Buckhalter might be your guy... but I'd say it really doesn't matter. I don't have a strong feeling about anyone of those guys in week one.
