I hesitate to annoit this guy a potential fantasy MVP due to his late schedule only because Ronnie Brown and Marshawn Lynch failed so miserably in that role last season. Guy could very well end up leading teams to championships though.

At the very least Benson is proving to be a draft day steal. He is also showing some poor luck or dubiuos judgment of Duh-Bearz FO. They let Jones go for sake of Benson. He tanks while Jones does well in NY, so they dump him for Forte. Now look who is doing well and who is struggling.
Barring injury or the afore mentioned boating incidents :-D I think Benson could carry teams to titles given his schedule after week 10 and that he wasn't even the #1 RB in his own family FFB league. Football is so funny sometimes.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I'm definitely starting him this week, over Ryan Grant. You would have to be very lucky to NOT be able to start him this week, or very stupid.

I'm afraid that the one week I do actually start him where he's actually expected to be a top 5 back he'll bust.

I agree with alll comments made so far, my only concern is that Cincy is going to wear him out. To say he is a workhorse is an understatement. I don't think the coaching staff cares if he carries the ball 40 times a game. I do have a sneaky suspicion that they may ease up the workload on him once Palmer gets into more a groove with his wideouts.

I think he's still fresh in his career where he can easily go 370+ this year and feel no ill effects.

I was actually thinking the same exact thing, going into this week. It seems like whenever something is too good to be true, it is. And, currently, Benson is crapping the bed against the absolutely horrid Cleveland run D :-t :~( I'm sure Grant will put up 100/2 against the dreaded Vikings :-X

He got the epitome of garbage yards. Thank god though, I'll take 86 total yards.

He actually didn't end up all that bad but a TD or 2 would have been nice. Still great value for where he was drafted
