Ward and Moss.

I expect NYG to try to run all over Indy, and Indy's secondary isn't terrible.
Benson will have a tough time running on Baltimore.

Given the same choice at WR2 this week, I'm going with Smith over Ward (though I may end up flexing Ward anyway), and this was before Nicks started missing practices. Tennessee's secondary is also pretty good, and their run D also not very good, so I'm picking the guy with the better QB.

EDIT: Oh, and I'd start Moss ahead of either of them this week.

Actually, I might as well just ask my own Flex question here:
Ward, TB Mike Williams, or Harrison? I'm assuming Hightower is bench fodder this week.

Ward is still going to get plenty of action, I'd go with him. I'm starting him over Randy Moss in two leagues. I'm not ready to trust the rookie over Ward yet. As a fellow Harrison owner, who the hell knows what's going on with the Cle RB situation.

Ward and Smith. I'd go with Benson over Moss as well, but that's just me.
