PPR league - WRs and RBs

We start 2 WR, 2 RB, and a W/R. We get 1 point per reception.

WRs: R. Wayne @ WAS, Andre Johnson vs. KC, Roddy White @ PHI, Hines Ward vs. CLE
RBs: Forte vs. SEA, LeSean McCoy vs. ATL, Addai @ WAS

I know those choices are a good problem to have. Right now I'm starting White and Johnson at WR, Wayne at W/R (because of his late start), and McCoy and Forte at RB. I don't feel great about my RBs though, and could easily be talked into starting Addai. Thoughts?

I would stick with Forte & McCoy. Addai hurt his shoulder last week and may not even play this week. Even if he does play, the Colts are more of a passing team than the Bears or Eagles. The Colts have picked up 80% of their yards through the air, which is more than the Bears (68%) or Eagles (66%)

You should feel great about your RBs. McCoy and Forte are almost must-starts just due to blow-up potential. It might depend on what you are facing as far as your desire for risk, but the likelihood that one or the other puts up a massive game is worth giving up the guaranteed 10-15 points from Addai.
