WR / RBs

Rushing & Receiving: 5 yards=1 pt, TD=6 pt
Start 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR

Kind of hit a bye week snag so have only 3 WR's + 3 RB's to choose from

Steve Smith (NYG) - vs. Oakland, with potentially David Carr throwing to him
Steve Smith (CAR) - vs. Washington's suddenly incompetent defense
Mohamed Massaquoi - vs. Buffalo

Ray Rice - vs. Cincy
Leon Washington - vs. Miami
Rashard Mendenhall - vs. Detroit

My bye week guys include Greg Jennings, Ryan Grant, Matt Forte and Johnny Knox.

Leaning heavily towards starting all three running backs, but can't figure out which combination of receivers to start. I'd like to start Massaquoi and have reservations about Smith (NYG) since he will probably line up against Asomugha and have Carr under center.

Any comments?

I think you're wrong on both counts about Smith (NYG) - he'll spend a lot of time in the slot & on the offensive right side (away from Asomugha), and it looks like Eli is going to start (Rotoworld reported that they haven't activated another QB besides him & Carr). Smith, Smith, Rice, and Mendy seem like must starts. I'd probably bench Massaquoi.

It's between Washington and Massaquoi. I like Massaquoi better, but both aren't strong starts.
