    Hey everyone!
    So I am in a NON-PPR league. Who should I start at RB and WR?

    2 RB slots
    2 WR Slots
    1 RB/WR option

    Thomas Jones vs. OAK
    Brandon Jackson vs. DAL
    Ryan Matthews vs. HOU
    Mike Tolbert vs. HOU

    Anquan Boldin vs. MIA
    Jeremy Maclin vs. INDY
    Marques Colston vs. CAR
    Mike Wallace vs. CIN
    Steve Johnson vs. CHI

    I am leaning towards Thomas Jones / Mike Tolbert (7 weeks at least a TD) and leaning for Boldin/Maclin ... Then possibly Steve Johnson in the RB/WR Slot?

    Suggestions?!
    Thanks!

    You're almost there. But you need to put Mike Wallace in the mix!

    Mike Tolbert vs. HOU

    Marques Colston vs. CAR
    Mike Wallace vs. CIN
    Steve Johnson vs. CHI

    I think Johnson will do well, and you can't beat Brees throwing to Colston against Carolina. Their running game has traditionally had issues against the panthers, but I think they'll come out with some big passing plays. As far as the top RB spots, matthews shouldn't even be in the mix anymore. Tolbert for sure.

    Mike Wallace is also a great option, maybe instead of Steve Johnson, but it's up to you. There's no telling whether the Bengals D will do well against the pass play or not.

    Why would you not wanna play Thomas Jones? The Raiders have the 28th ranked Defense against the Run. Also, The Chiefs average over 40 run plays a game. Even if Charles and Jones, split 20 20 carries, they are still producing.
    Not trying to argue or anything, just wondering. I thought he would be a lock for me this week. Brandon Jackson gets about 7 points for me a game, but I could see more with the Cowboys D. I also have Aaron Rodgers at QB, so might be able to get a double dip TD.

    I would go with T. Jones & Brandon Jackson at RB and Anquan Boldin & Jeremy Maclin at WR and then Mike Wallace at Flex.

    Boldin, Maclin, Johnson. Jones and Matthews (I think this is his breakout week).

    I kind of agree with you.. last week he got me 11.4 points (first week I sat him on the bench this year).

    He sat most of it with an injury. Tolbert steals TD's but Houston's defense is weak. I am just worried they are going to throw 80% of the time like they always do even without their WRs.

    Schaub has looked horrible lately and AJ is hobbled. I think this will be two teams trying to run on each other. I see SD getting up and then trying to grind it out on the ground.
