No offense, but I can't imagine dropping Benson for Matthews. That's just bad advice. You've weathered Benson's bye, he's startable, is in an offense that WILL use him, is not splitting time with 2 other guys, and someone's suggesting you take a RB that has been hurt, has his bye coming in week 10, is on a pass-first offense, and is splitting WAY too much time...
What's going on here? Benson has had 2 bad weeks, 2 monster weeks, and an okay/meh week. And his bye is history. Benson is the 13th ranked RB in my scoring, IF YOU SORT BY WEEKS 1-5, so his bye week 0 doesn't impact the numbers. Because it shouldn't, until all RBs are past their bye week.
Matthews? He has had one okay week. The rest has been bad, whether injured or not.
Sure he should do better, and I think he will. But better than Benson? Where's the track record to prove that this is even possible? And with SD struggling so much... you have every chance in the world that he'll be getting 10-15 carries per game. You're getting demonstrably bad advice IMO. Maybe some people are just valuing Matthews more than I do... maybe people are just trying to give quick opinions to get help on their threads... but IMO they're crazy.
In a need situation, you start Benson and Foster with total confidence, with CJ out. I think you're just in a league that is designed for some less fortunate team to pick up Matthews. I don't think I drop Charles for him. It's the only RB you can CONSIDER dropping for him, though. IMO, that's all there is to it. viewtopic.php?t=481709
