McCoy vs Freeman and Starks vs Jacobs

I have two open spots for my week 1 fantasy team.

At QB I have McCoy vs. Cin and Freeman vs. Det. I would think Freeman would be the better QB, but I am very impressed with Detroits defense.

At RB3 I managed to collect a couple of nice options, but now I am unsure whom to start:

Starks vs NO
Jacobs vs Was
Tomlinson vs DAL.

Any Suggestions from the crowd?

DET has a nice front 7 but their secondary still stinks. Start Freeman.

If you have to start one, I'd start Starks. The O-cordinator for GB said they would ease Grant back into things which means to me that they will be leaning a little bit more on Starks than the 50/50 split that will happen eventually this season. Jacobs might be good for 50 yds and TD. LDT is good for nothing.

For sure Freeman. If you have to start one of those guys, I'd be concerned. And I'd go with Starks over Jacobs. Tomlinson not in the conversation.

Thanks guys and no worries, its a deep league and I always make QB my least priority.

And believe too much in Kubiak when it comes to QBs, meaning I am searching the waiver wire by week 4.
