It's a 12 team - PPR League.  1 point for catch, 1 point for 10 yards for RB/WR.  Just focusing on my situation at RB/WR, we start 1 RB, 1 RB/WR, 1 WR and 1 WR/TE.

The 5 guys I have to fill the 4 spots are James Conner, Gio Bernard, Mike Evans, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Stefon Diggs.  Trying to move Gio into the starting lineup is where it's got me overthinking this a bit.  Right now I have Conner, Gio, JuJu and Mike Evans in my lineup, but I'm having a hard time leaving Diggs out.  Obviously if Mixon is playing, my lineup is pretty straight forward, but that's not the case right now. What are some other opinions here in how to handle this?

 
That's a good problem to have. I would actually sit Conner. Ravens are allowing 6th fewest fantasy ppg to RBs. Historically, Ravens/Steelers feels like it's a game of field goals and sloppy but Ravens have greater offensive firepower this year.

I also feel like Thursday night games can be low-scoring and although Peters and Talib are out, I don't know if Cousins will have much time to throw with a bad offensive line vs. Rams defensive line. I feel like it's another Thielen game and that's who Cousins seems to favor.

Now that I think about it, I would sit Diggs out of those two. Conner just sees too much volume to be on your bench. Bernard is in a prime matchup with the defense-less Falcons and Evans and Smith-Schuster see tons of targets.

I think Diggs is a pretty easy sit there. Cousins hasn't had much time to throw against teams with far less threatening fronts than Donald/Suh.

 
I really appreciate all of the input.  At the last minute I started feeling not so good about a couple of the mentioned guys being on the injury report, so I put Diggs in since he played on Thursday night.  Luckily I got 11 catches for 123 yards, so it worked out pretty good.

Good choice.  I know it may seem like hindsight but I would sit Conner as he really hasn't been great other than week 1 and if not for a total breakdown by TB on that last drive he would have been not very good last week.  I think he is riding that first week outburst but lately he hasn't been good.
