Week 6 WR questions???

I gotta start 3 of these guys:
D Bowe
N Burleson
M Manningham
H Nicks
D Avery
J Macklin

Burleson against Arizona looks like a no brainer, and I think Bowe is good start against Wash.

Manningham and Nicks look tough to start in New Orleans.

Avery plays for a lousy team but they got nothing else at WR and they are playing a lousy Jax pass defense.

Maclin is in Oak; he put up great numbers in his first start last week with Kevin Curtis out. Can he do it 2 weeks in a row?

Any thoughts out there?

I agree on Bowe and Burleson. Manningham/Nicks looks like a kind of committee; I'd stay away unless you can find some intel that'd show the Giants going one way or the other. I'm thinking Avery over Maclin. Maclin might get some Nnamdi, but more importantly, Avery's team is more likely to be behind and throwing the football in garbage time against a crummy pass D.

I pretty much agree with zhengyiquan. Avery will at least see a lot of targets. Maclin has the potential for an amazing game since Asomugha will likely be covering Jackson most of the game, but he also has a chance to not do much when the Eagles score three times with other people and just stop caring.
