Who to Start Week 1?

Recommended Posts

Figured I would come to the Huddle fantasy gurus with this predicament:

In one yahoo league we start 2 RBs, 1TE, and 1 W/RB/TE and I would like your opinions on who I should start week one of the players below at those 4 spots:

DeMarco Murray @NYG

David Wilson DAL

Jermaine Gresham @BAL

Titus Young STL

Trent Richardson PHI

Greg Olsen @TB

DeAngelo WIlliams @TB

Santonio Holmes BUF

Mark Ingram WAS

Personally, I think Gresham and Richardson will struggle against those defenses come week 1 and both are nursing injuries and may be eased into the mix so Olsen may be a better option than Gresham.

Titus Young intriques me at the W/RB/TE spot and he should be able to create space against a St. Louis secondary that has to deal with Megatron, as does DeAngelo and Holmes. I'm thinking Holmes being out for a little while and having to catch balls from Sanchez/The Golden Calf of Bristol may hurt him.

The Saints** just have so many backs and I doubt Ingram gets a big workload but he has goal line scoring ability.

David Wilson I think is going to produce this season as he is thus far in pre-season.

What do you all think?

^^Agreed. May go Trent R. over Young though...defense be damned, Trent is about all the Browns have. I personally love Young this year, but I'd wait to see what he does week one.

Only problem with Trent is I'm hearing that he may see limited time week 1 as they ease him back from his injury. I guess I'll have to wait it out another couple weeks but I need Trent to have a big season.

Any other opinions on this matter out there? Right now I'm starting Murray, Richardson, Olsen (should have a big game against TB), and Titus Young.

I would go with that except for I would play Holmes over Young. Jets have no real receiver other than him, and a rookie. I wouldn't expect much goal line work but he should get plenty targets one would assume especially if Keller is out. Richardson IF healthy should be somewhere Stevan Jackson of the Rams level. Lowish ceiling, but high floor because he is really the only good skill player on offense that they have.
