Need to pick 2 from my WRs listed in the signature. I am going with Vick Ballard at flex this week since he has a good matchup, with Rice and Martin as my RB1/RB2. I am nervous about Jordy Nelson burning me again. I am thinking about going with Maclin and Roberts and benching Lloyd and Nelson.

Keep in mind it's only week 6 of a long season. Heck I have Dez and Antonio Brown and continue to start them over speculative selections/playing a hunch. Okay Brown did only get me (20) passing yards but he was targeted a lot and eventually he will come around. On that note I would still stand by my studs and would play.

Maclin who gets the favorable match up of the Lions secondary and Jordy Nelson playing the Texans.

I couldn't play Lloyd with all of the options the Patriots have and they are playing the very good Seahawks secondary. I understand the intrigue of playing Roberts but I just can't play a WR that has Kolb thowning to him over the #1 WR in GB who has Rodgers throwning him the ball.

At some point James, I have to let the "long season" line of thinking go. For me that was last week, I am looking at players, like Lloyd who isn't performing (or scoring) but getting targets and make a change. How long do we sit and watch Roberts possibly perform before we give him his due credit? 4 TDs in 5 weeks. Nelson hasn't put up stellar numbers either, then again neither has Rodgers, so I guess the two go hand in hand.

I would start Roberts and Maclin this week. I don't believe they can do any worse than Lloyd of Nelson, both who don't have favorable match ups. If Alex Smith can throw for 300 and 3 TDs I don't see any reason Kolb can't have similar success.
