Need help with who to start

First off, can we just make one thread we can go to for these questions?

I'm in a 12 man league, no PPR. We start 1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, and 1 TE, K, DEF.

QB - Rodgers, Eli Manning
WR - Fitzgerald, Holmes, Smith(NYG), Cotchery
RB - B. Jacobs, F. Jackson, R. Brown, D. Ward, T. Hightower
TE - Carlson, Celek
K - R. Lindell
DEF - Arizona

The players I have listed first are who I have starting this week. Any help would be appreciated.

1. I don't see how one thread can help EVERYBODY who asks for help.

2. You'll get a better response if you just ask for certain positions in which you are having trouble deciding. Posting your whole team asking for help doesn't doesn't give us much to work with

3. Listing what team the players you are inquiring about face also helps us help you.



I do give you kudos on posting starting requirements and the non-ppr info though.

Off the top of my head


WR - Fitzgerald, Holmes, Smith(NYG)
TE - Celek
K - R. Lindell
DEF - Arizona

Don't know who the rest of the people are playing so can't help you.

Thanks for the help man. Next time I post here I'll be more specific

Alright, thanks!
Jacobs @ TB
Jackson vs. NO
Brown @ SD

Really, those are all nice match-ups for your backs. Buffalo/NO will likely be a high scoring game, so Jackson seems like a must to start.

As for the other two, it's really a coin toss. Brown has put up better numbers to this point, but Miami is coming from across the country on a short week to play SD. I like Jacobs to put up a few TDs vs. Tampa Bay's lackluster defense. Not to mention they'll probably jump on them pretty early and resort to running the ball a lot in the second half.

I'd go with Jackson and Jacobs, but I'd bet all three backs put up good numbers this weekend.
