Pick my Entire Lineup

Having a lot of internal debates over this week's lineup, so I decided to put it up for debate here. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 OP (QB/RB/WR). 6 Pts for passing TD, 1 PPR, everything else is standard. My team is:

Brady @DEN
Romo @KC
Cassell DAL

J Jones JAC
K Moreno NE
F Jackson CLE

R White @SF
D Bowe DAL
S Smith (NYG) OAK
K Walter @ARI
P Garcon @TEN

Right now I'm leaning towards going with Brady & Romo, MJD & J Jones, Bowe & Smith. Brady playing @DEN has me worried. Would I consider benching him for Cassell who has a much better matchup? Would anyone consider playing Walter/White over Brady? How about Jones or Moreno.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

The Broncos shouldn't scare anyone

When you can start 2 QBs, you do, pretty much every time. This is no exception, and I wouldn't worry about Brady. Stick with him and Romo, watch as the Chiefs' O-line rewinds the Dallas D to 2008.

I'd start Moreno over Jones. With Buckhalter out, he's basically getting all the carries. I favor White over Bowe, but it's a toss-up, and Bowe does have a better matchup. Also, while the Falcons are hardly a lock to win, they're more likely to have a balanced or run-heavy attack than the Chiefs, who figure to trail all game despite the Cowboys' recent struggles. Both WRs have to break out eventually - they're too talented not to - but I suppose Bowe's odds are better this week.

I'm definitely starting 2 QBs. I'll stick with Brady but I'm concerned.

I can't decide from Bowe/White. Bowe has a better matchup, but White coming off a bye looks good. Both are due for a breakout, I guess I'll just flip a coin.

btw, I started roddy white and got all 41 pts he put up in a PPR league.
