Week one matchup help

Chris Cooley at the Giants or John Carlson vs. STL
WRs- I need to start three
Eddie Royal- starting
Anquan Boldin- starting
Santonio holmes vs. Ten/Steve breaston vs SF/Kevin walter vs Jets (note this league awards ppr and a point for every 25 return yards which boosts breastons value)
RB3- Kevin Smith @NO or Willie Parker Vs. Ten
D/ST- Minny @ Cle or NE vs Buff

Holmes (WR1, talent, revamped TEN defense), Parker if Smith/Grant play for the Saints d-line week one and Smith if they don't, and Minnesota.

I would personally start Carlson at TE assuming STL's D is a soft as it was last season. Hasslebeck built a good relationship with Carlson in the latter portion of last season. Of course, Hasselbeck's other receivers were insurance salesmen at this point due to the epic amount of injuries last year.

DISCLAIMER: I'm a Hawks fan and can be a bit of a homer, but Carlson did look good last year and I'm expecting a good performance from him this year.
