Week 9, need help with lineup and who to start.?

League of friends, only 4 of us (We start 2 QB, 2RB, 3 WR, 2 TE, 2 K & 2 DEF)

QB - Aaron Rodgers, Donovan McNabb & Joe Flacco

RB - Cedric Benson, Ray Rice & DeAngelo Williams

WR - Randy Moss, Wes Welker, DeSean Jackson, Roddy White & Mike Sims-Walker

TE - Vernon Davis & Fred Davis (I lost Owen Daniels as he is out with a season ending injury)

K - Stephen Gostkowski, Nate Kaeding & Matt Stover

DEF - Saints, Colts & Giants

I'm already starting

QB - Aaron Rodgers & Donovan McNabb

RB - Cedric Benson & Ray Rice (Real tough benching DeAngelo Williams but I think these 2 will out perform him as Rice has been real consistent and Benson is a beast against good defense teams)

K - Stephen Gostkowski & Matt Stover

DEF - Saints & Colts

WR is my main problem.. I am definitely starting DeSean Jackson, he's been a beast and will continue that rage against a struggling Cowboys defense. The hard part is that the combo of Randy Moss & Wes Welker sounds good against a dolphins defense, I don't know if I should start both or start one. Mike Sims-Walker has an excellent matchup against the Chiefs too. So I need to pick 2 more to start.

BTW, here's a list of notable WR in waivers, opinions on who to add/drop or stick with lineup

- Hines Ward, Donald Driver, Derrick Mason, Devin Hester, Dwayne Bowe, Hakeem Nicks, Austin Collie, Michael Crabtree, Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin & Steve Smith (CAR)

Any tips are helpful and I thank you for the input.

    Start Moss & Welker I have a feeling that brading could score 4td & 400yds. So i would start these two with Jackson.

    I Would get rid of a kicker & pick up Donald Driver who has a great match up v Tampa Bay

    A lot depends on if you are in a PPR League or Standard Scoring League. PPR is Points Per Reception. In a PPR league, go with Welker, Moss and pick up/go with Michael Crabtree. This will be his break-out game. I would also go Vernon Davis, and Matt Stover.

    In standard league I would go with Randy Moss and Roddy White and Crabtree.

    I have Sims-Walker as well (also have welker, white, crabtree) and I hear you about the potential against KC, but can you really trust anyone other than MJD on the jags? He may have a high ceiling, but the risk / reward is not there when you have those other guys on your bench.

    MJD no brainer, Benson does nicely against good run protection, Welker maximum suitable WR on your crew, Collie 4 tds in 4 weeks with gonzalez out, Hakeem Nicks lighting fixtures it up recently play chargers, anticipate shootout
