Steve Smith(NYG)?

Can't decide if I should start Smith. Is that shutdown corner with the crazy name gonna be covering him? How are the Raiders against #1 WRs? Plus Eli is gimpy. They could just pound the ball all day.

The other 2 I got penciled in(we start 3 WR) are: Ocho & Sims-Walker
My bench is: Harvin, Bowe, Evans

PPR league & WRs get the TD points for punt/kick returns

Also, RB question: C. Johnson or McGahee?

My research says that NYG Smith is safe; he plays out of the slot and/or moves around whereas Nnamdi just shuts down one side of the field. I'd be more concerned about NYG being up by 42 at the half and resting their starters. Your other WR picks look good to me.

I'd go C. Johnson at RB. I assume TEN will go run heavy to keep Peyton off the field. Furthermore he is very nearly a feature back whereas McGahee has to share. Not like either is a bad play though.
