A.J. Green: Start your stud with confidence. Green Bay’s defense has been lit up through the air two weeks in a row.

Calvin Johnson: Just like A.J. Green, he’s a no-brainer start for this week going against the hapless Redskins’ pass defense.

Demaryius Thomas: Another stud you can confidently start. He’s playing the Raiders, and they do not have the personnel to keep up with the Broncos.

Roddy White: I wouldn’t start him until I see him have a full week of practice. I think that high ankle sprain is going to affect his play for a little while. White is only worth your while if you get points for being a decoy.

Stevie Johnson: The Buffalo Bills are playing the New York Jets, and he’s going to be covered by Cromartie. If you have another WR to start this week, I would look into it.

Torrey Smith: Smith is going to have a hard time against the Houston Texans. The pass rush is going to get to Joe Flacco, and he’s not going to be able to connect with Smith with the deep ball.
