    WR - Who to start?

    I have five WR and three slots to fill ... if I win this week's matchup, I reach the playoffs ... if I lose, I'm likely out of the playoffs so this is very important!

    Deion Branch - New England @ Buffalo
    Bobby Engram - Seattle vs. San Francisco
    Jerry Porter - Oakland @ New York Jets
    Rod Smith - Denver vs. Baltimore
    Kevin Curtis - St. Louis @ Minnesota

    Since Isaac Bruce returned, I'm not sure how much playing time Kevin Curtis has been getting so he's been on the bench for the past few weeks. Really, I think it all comes down to picking three of Branch/Engram/Porter/Smith to start.

    Any advice?

    I would go with Branch and Porter. Porter looks good with Moss stinking it up and I really don't like the other option. Branch is solid and doesn't have a bad match-up so I would pick him. And ya, go with Curtis.

    I'd go with Smith, Branch and Engram.

    Not sure what Porter will do with a new QB in windy Giants Stadium. The Raiders may be content to pound the ball with Jordan and Crockett.

    Thanks guys ... my gut feeling is agreeing with both NJReds and kheidg. Unless something unforeseen such as a new injury occurs this week, I'm planning on starting Engram, Smith and Branch.

    4. Rod Smith
    5. Kevin Curtis

    Re: WR - Who to start?

    Engram's two scores came up huge for me. WR are my team's weak link so if I can even get one TD out of them I'm not in bad shape. If I can get two TDs, I'm in pretty good shape. I benched Porter and he wasn't doing much for most of the game, but had a late TD ... possibly just getting some garbage time in.

    Based off my rough scoring estimate, I should have about 22.5 points out of Engram/Branch/Smith, and I'll take that since my money guys are at other positions.
