    OK guys, I need some good advice for tomorrows games. I am having a bit of problem deciding my 2nd RB and my 4th WR. I am starting Duce Staley but with A-Train being downgraded to Doubtful, I am in need of a 2nd back. My choices are Lamar Smith, Tyrone Wheatley, and Tiki Barber. I am leaning more towards Barber because of his pass reception skills. I like Wheatley, but I am a bit concearned about his 1st game back being against the Giants in New York.

    Now, my 4th WR is also a question. I already started Freeman on Thursday and I have Tory Holt and Joe Horn as my 2nd and 3rd WR's. My 4th WR is between Amani Toomer and Darrell Jackson. Toomer usually gets the start, but if I start Barber, I don't want two Giants going against the Raiders.

    What do you guys think I should do? I am leaning towards Barber and Jackson, but Wheatley and Toomer doesn't sound bad either.

    I would go with Tiki Barber. The Raiders can be run on (Shaun Alexander gained 266 yards against them). Barber has taken over as primary back for Ron Dayne, who I always thought was overrated. Lamar Smith has not been impressive lately, and this is Wheatley's first game back after a long layoff. He will probably be rusty, and the Giants are no picnic to run against. Garner may still get more carries.

    I'm surprised you were not required to set your lineup before Tursday's games.

    I think you are leaning the wrong way. I would play Darrel and Lamar.
