Green-Ellis or Benson

Postby Harry Halfzeees » Thu Sep 08, 2011 3:00 pm

I am in a 10team standard scoring league. Which one of these guys should I start in the flex spot?

That's a tough call. Benson is going to get more touches but has a lot less talent around him and they opponents will be stacking against the run big time. Green-Ellis will get less touches but gets goal line touches and is a much more prolific offense.

General wisdom would tell me to say Benson (Pick a feature back over a guy who splits time), but until Dalton can prove he can move the ball in the passing game Benson will be running against 8 men in the box.

I say Green-Ellis.

Ellis for two cheap Corey Dillon td's..

Agreed with the above statement, rookie qb and he will be facing 8 men in the box all day.
