I love FF and would never do this.For all you BBall fans,it's like not pitching to Barry Bonds...sure you get the win but you didn't beat the other team...chump move all the way.

Oh yeah,and...I have been in money leagues for years and total points factor in big...this thought would never cross my mind.It's Football,objective,crush your opponent.

It's easy to say now, but I wouldn't have even seriously thought about benching him.

Johnson doesn't amke that many mistakes. Like the announcers were saying Johnson gets hit alot, but doesn't take too many sacks, or throw a bunch of INT's.

I generally don't play a fantasy defense against Tampa because they usually don't committ those types of errors.

Late scoring changes have happened before as well. I'd have to investigate his team thoroughly to ensure there cannot be a change to his benefit before I ever felt comfortable about that move. Losing because of that would be too tought to take.

GP, the goal is to win. Winning in a flashy manner is fun, but securing the win is the first consideration.

That said, I wouldn't be too nervous about starting Brad Johnson, in general, as he makes few mistakes.

I'd be most likely to bench a Def rather than an offensive player.
