Make that 3 for Addai.

It depends on who your studs are and what other options you have. I'd almost never sit Addai (unless you have LT and AP or something), but Kevin Jones is far from a "must start".

Yeah, I have KJ too and didn't start him. Who would have predicted he would have scored 2 TDs today? Sometimes weird things happen.

I started K Jones on a hunch 2 weeks ago against GB and started him this week as well. He made up for Peterson getting me nothing. Now off to play the guy that has Moss, Brady, LT, Portis, KW2, ect in my 12 teamer!

That's right never bench your studs. I benched Ocho Cinco a couple fo weeks ago because he had not scored in two and a half months (10 weeks) and it cost me a Playoff spot. He scored three times that game. I still had a chance to make the playoffs last week as I was down 28 points going into the Monday game. My opponent was done and I had McGahee in our PPR league. Win and I'm in. Nope I needed 29 to win and I got 28 (a freaking tie) and I'm out (I also had Schaub that week and he got injured in the first quarter). Besides having to deal with injuries (SJax, Andre Johnson) all year, I look at the Ocho benching as the critical error. Later.

Tell me about it. I benched Burress and while I still won thanks to Brady's awesome performance, I really wanted that blow out.

Wow did I just sound like Belichick for a second there or what?

Yeah, I was about to mention Mcgahee.....I benched C.Taylor because of how well Mcgahee did against the pats.
