Exactly, it seems like you're very hesitant to take all of our advice, which has been--I think--unanimous, mannubhai. But to answer your question, Shipp wil be more productive because you can't be productive if you're not playing and that will be Moe's situation in another week or two. Shipp's performance has virtually guaranteed him a spot in the lineup. Bennett is getting better every week, and he will take Williams' carries. In addition, the Arizona offense relies heavily on the run, so Shipp will get a lot of carries, even if the carries come against teams with good defenses.

I highly appreciate the advice/opinions. I am just trying to play the Devils advocate ..I want to talk about all relevant things regarding this comparison ;-D

Looks like Shipp is the real deal.

Shipp is the better fantasy back right now, with bennett getting more carries in the future, or so we're told. Minnesota will be running back by committee for the forseeable future. Shipp, on the other hand, is the man in AZ.

Who would I rather have if I were coach of an NFL team, or offensive coordinator, as it were? Bennett.

"Is Shipp better than Moe?" - in fantasy terms or actual talent?

In the fantasy world, I'd say Moe Williams because of the offense he is in. He gets plenty oppurtunities of hitting paydirt. However, I believe Shipp is a better all-around football player because he has risen to the occassion for Arizona to become their future RB. Smith is done.

That's just my two cents.
