Hey guys. I'm in a 10 team H2H Normal Scoring League. We are doing pitching staffs even though i hate it. And we also have to set line ups at the beginning of the week and they are then locked in for the whole week and you can't change players daily. It's weekly. I have a few questions as to who to start this week.

Single = 1
Double = 2
Triple = 3
Home Run = 4
Run = 1
RBI = 1
Walk = 1
Stolen Base = 2
Caught Stealing = -1

My Team:

C: Carlos Santana (C, U, CLE)
1B: Adrian Gonzalez (1B, U, BOS)
2B: Dan Uggla (2B, U, ATL)
3B: Pablo Sandoval (3B, U, SF)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS, U, CHC)
OF: Josh Hamilton (OF, U, TEX)
Pitching Staff: Atlanta Braves (P, ATL)
B: Yoenis Cespedes (OF, U, OAK)
B: Jhonny Peralta (SS, U, DET)
B: Nick Markakis (OF, U, BAL)
B: Mike Moustakas (3B, U, KC)
B: Jordan Schafer (OF, U, HOU)
B: Emilio Bonifacio (3B, SS, OF, U, MIA)
B: Jacoby Ellsbury (OF, U, BOS) (DL)
B: Michael Bourn (OF, U, ATL)
B: Eric Hosmer (1B, U, KC)

With Ellsbury out he is out of the question for this week obviously. I have had Bonifacio on the bench recently but he's been racking up some solid points lately so I was wondering if i should start him this week but i couldn't decide where. With Cespedes and Hosmer both not having such a great time i question who to start in this situation. Maybe it's a given and i'm just overlooking it. So i need to fill the utility spot (Hosmer here?) and then two outfielders. What two would you throw in there? Any help is greatly appreciated and as always i will help in return!

Thanks much!

I wouldn't over think it. Slow starts will get turned around.
