Not a great week for D pick-ups, I would probably stick with Chi.

I see someone already snagged Browns against Colts O. Bears are normally solid D, but I can see your hesitancy starting against NO. From that list, I like DEN against CIN O.

Sorry! There's a risk there too since McFadden gashed DEN's run defense last week, but I think they do a better job this week because they'll focus on it more with Cincy's air attack focused on a rookie QB and WR. I'd personally just stick with the Bears if you have trouble deciding.

Denver. Lets not compare an explosive back like mcfadden to benson, not even in the same class. benson has not been doing a lot of gashing the last few years and the cincy air attack looks troublesome.

Really? I think Benson chuckled like i did... i guess 123 yards and a touchdown last week isnt "gashing" a defense.

Id stick it out with the Bears instead of hoping a mediocore Def can make something happen.... While NO is an explosive offense, you always have Hester as a return threat, and a DEF that can get sacks and create TO's.

please help me out as well:

Ill take mcfaddens 5.2ypc and you take bensons 3.5 and we'll talk at the end of the year. If you watched the game those numbers speak more for cleveland's miscues on defense than bensons "gashing". Go back and check it out. *****sidenote, u make a good point though, I would stick it out with the bear d also when i think about it*******

I wasnt insisting that Benson is Better than McFadden. DMC is clearly the more talented back.... but if a defense is weak against the run( like Denver), Benson is certainly more than capable of taking advantage of it. Cincy will rely heavily on the run to open up the occasional throw downfield to AJ green.
