Definitely don't assume that Benson gets 25 carries. Peterson was the guy they went to last week. Caveat emptor.



You have to register for the article. and speaking from experience, most people won't bother. But regardless it only backs up what I was saying, don't jump on the Benson Bus just yet because he might drop you off in the wrong part of town.

I would never start someone unproven, no matter how good the matchup. Too many ifs. Unless of course you are starting JJ Arington.

I agree...I know they've given up a lot on the ground, but hopefully MIN took the bye week to get their s%#t in order. Since CHI doesn't have much of a passing attack, I can see MIN making it especially difficult to run the ball.


I don't think they used their bye week to improve their performance on the field though:

They Vikes may not win another game this year.

A source says at least 17, but possibly as many as 25, Vikings team members were on the pair of cruise boats for a party that allegedly involved sex acts, heavy drinking, drugs, and possible prostitution took place.


17 to 25? Obviously shows very little team unity!

Millionare athletes and drinking, drugs and girls together in one place?!?!? I am just shocked! I might bet they play better because of this. But I won't.

I think this is the week to be a Benson owner. He's going to make it or break it for the year this week.

Peterson is not bad. But Benson SHOULD be much, much better. Benson has it all. Just no business-sense. Jones' injury MAY be more serious than it sounds, and it may be the kind of thing that plagues him for some time. I wouldn't be so quick to assume he's going to snap back to the starting role next week. If he's hurt or underperforming due to his injury, Benson WILL be the starter.

Benson WILL outperform Peterson this week.

The guy I feel most sorry for right now, is the dude in my league who dropped Benson this week for Antowain Smith. He isn't even the Deuce owner... pretty much screwed the Deuce owner (who had it coming, because he's not paying attention to the waiver wire, etc) but will regret the decision when Antowain sucks and Benson starts this weekend.
