Rookie needs advice from you FFL gurus...please please please

This is my big dilemma in my combined TD/Performance ESPN league:

My starters:

QB  B. Favre
WR  T. Brown
WR  C. Carter (v. GB)
TE  S. Sharpe
K   M. Hollis

this is where it gets difficult.  I need to choose two more
starters out of the following and at least one has to be
an RB

J. Anderson V. SF
K. Jabbar V. TB
R. Smith  V. GB
T. Biak   V. KC (i think AJ is question. next week)
A. Smith  V. IND (he got more carries than Thomas did last week)

C. Sanders V. Baltimore (the oilers beat up on Balt last year...i also
                         have McNair on the Bench)
H. Copeland V. Miami

also available on waivers:
E. Byner v. Ten

OJ McDuffie V. TB
B. Perriman
B. Engram

Finally i need to also choose between Pitt D v. Jac on monday night
or the Jets D v. Oak in NY.

Please help me decide...any advice would be much appreciated.

Here's what I would do.  Take McDuffie off the waivers and get rid of
Copeland, but start Jabbar and a. Smith.  Here's the reasoning.  Jabbar
is a good back and the TB defence is good...but overrated thus far.
Loof for a slight dropoff in their production.  As for A. Smith, this is
as good a week as any for them to give him the ball and he is due for
breakout game.  R. Smith is against a strong front four even without
Brown so I wouldn't count on him much this week.  Oh yeah, go with Pitt
on D.  How go have the jets been?  I don't know much on tyhe D thing
cause we have individual players, but it looks like NY gives up a lot of
points.  Good luck this week

Someone made the point earlier that Robert Smith could have a big game
with Gilbert Brown out from the Packers' DL.  Hope so since I have him
going for me too.  Interesting thought, in any case; would be interested
to hear other opinions on this.  He's a good back anyway, one of the
best you've got, and with the Packers' offense struggling maybe the
Vikes won't have to throw a lot to keep up.  We'll see.

Of your other choices I'd probably try Antowain Smith against the sad
Colts D.  Chris Sanders might come through for you too.  The others I'd
keep on hold for this week, especially ANYONE running against the Niners
or Bucs.

Your defensive question begs you to flip a coin.  I can't see either
being appreciably better than the other this week, whether you're in a
big-play scoring setup or yardage-based.  Both will probably give up a
bunch of production and quite a few points and not get a lot of
turnovers.  Go with your gut or flip a coin.
