Romo/McNabb, RBs - pick3

Standard Yahoo league, no PPR

I'm leaning towards McNabb against Was, but last week hurt. If I had a better choice than Romo instead I'd go with it, but this one's kind of up in the air. Either of them could put up a stinker.

Have 2WR, 2RB and a Flex with:
Ochocinco
Sidney Rice
Miles Austin
Deverey Henderson

DeAngelo Williams
Rashard Mendenhall
Ronnie Brown
Carnell Williams
Clinton Portis

WR isn't too great, so I have Ocho and Sidney in and am figuring 3 RBs.
Anyone think Miles is going to have another big game?

I've got DeAngelo and Ronnie penciled in, but am less sure about #3.
Minn's rush defense is pretty good, but then again, so is PHI, and
if the Pat's go to town again, the Bucs will be throwing all game.
I'm leaning towards Rashard but would appreciate any thoughts.

I'd still go with McNabb at QB, but you're right that either choice could go south.
I'm torn on your WR pick - Atlanta has been awful against #2 receivers. Pittsburgh has been fantastic against them, but terrible against #1's. If you consider Rice the #1 in Minny (personally, I do), I'd go with him; if not, Austin.
Flex-wise, you could just start the other receiver, but I'd go with Mendenhall even against the Vikes.

I'd go Austin over Rice only because I perceive DAL/ATL to be a more aerial game than MIN/PIT. It's still kind of a tossup though.

I'd also go with Mendenhall against the Vikes; Minnesota can (sort of) be run on this year. Jared Allen, in particular, can be exploited, as Ray Rice showed last week. A close second is Portis, but only if he gets into the passing game. Philly seems vulnerable to RB/TE passes.

I went with McNabb, Austin and Rashad. Would have been better with Rice instead of Rashad and Romo had a good game, but with DeAngelo's score, and having picked up the NO defense on Saturday, it's not going to matter how McNabb does tonight. Thanks for the thoughts.
