The problem is at WR. I'm playing against Victor Cruz vs NO and Vincent Jackson vs Phi. My WRs are:
Hakeem Nicks vs NO - not 100%
Eric Decker @ Oak - in a horrible slump. plays THURSDAY
Danario Alexander @ Pit â€“ worst matchup possible. BUT Ike Taylor is out.
Cecil Shorts vs NYJ â€“ also a tough matchup, Also has concussion.
Jordy Nelson vs Det â€“ Probably out with hamstring (best matchup besides Nicks)
Percy Harvin vs Chi â€“ he was limping as recently as Saturday. Probably wont play. Even if he doesâ€¦.its Chicago
Nicks is a must-start by default here. The part that sucks is that Decker plays Thursday. My options at WR2 are:
a) Play Decker on Thursday
b) Play Alexander
c) Hope that Shorts, Nelson, or Harvin can play, and use Alexander as a backup option
With Ike Taylor out, I think Alexander is probably a better option than Shorts or a banged up Nelson/Harvin.
But should I start Decker on Thursday, or wait to see my options on Sunday and use Alexander (or Shorts)?
