Week 2 WRs

Trying to decide which 2 to start out of the 4:

Colston @ PHI
VJax vs. BAL
Marshall vs. CLE
Burleson @ SF

Mostly ruling Burleson out. Colston and Jackson have tougher matchups, but much more reliable quarterbacks and temperaments. I'm leaning towards those two, but does anyone have a good argument otherwise?

There's a good chance Marshall plays up to his talent this week, but I wouldn't like to count on it. Might be best to bench him until after he's proven he'll make an effort.

Clearly, Colston must start. Brees is on fire. I just heard Sean Payton say on WFAN that the ball never touched the ground in their 7 on 7 drills this week.

I'd probably give the nod to VJax over Burleson even though NB looked really fresh last week. Still it was the Rams. And the Niners did a super job on the AZ passing game last week.
