Week 3 WRs

Who to start. I need to start one of these guys.
L Robinson
N Burleson

the matchups don't look great for any of them. Burleson's looks the worst with Hasselbeck hurt.

Touch call between Berrian and Robinson, but I would probably go with Robinson. Green Bay's VOA agaist #1 and #2 WRs hasn't been very good and they've given up a fairly high number of fantasy points to WRs.

I'll second the Robinson call. Once again, STL will be behind and throwing. Garbage yards is still yards.

I'd go Berrian, who has a decent chance to take a long bomb to the house.

I've got these WRs:

1. Reggie Wayne
2. Marques Colston
3. DeSean Jackson (slightly injured? unsure qb?), Donald Driver, or Steve Smith (of the NYG).

Who should my #3 be?

off the top of my head, I would say Driver and it's not particularly close. Looking a little closer though, tb's dvoa in the secondary is uniformly terrible where stl is actually pretty good vs #1 wr's. coin flip? Oh, and I'd stay away from Jackson's 38% catch rate and KC's #10 dvoa vs opp #1 wr's. So there you go, I've narrowed it down for you, though I don't know if it was that much help.

Its close between Smith and Driver. They both have favorable matchups. I'd lean toward Smith. Eli looks for him a more than Rogers looks for Driver.
