Tough sittin' MJD, especially after he ripped TEN last week, but I agree Benson is a better matchup. TEN isn't the Jets!

Start Benson. The Jets pass def looked shaky but run was still solid.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

DO NOT START MJD!!

In a STD league, his ceiling is 12 pts, his floor is about 5.

Benson will have 10 FP's by the half on the Broncos sucko run D

Thats not true at all. I have started and gotten big games out of MJD. And id be willing to bet large amounts of money that he totally craps the bed WAY less than jail bird.

I would start MJD without a single moment's hesitation in my mind. I think you go with talent here and MJD is 50x more talented than Cedric Benson. Expect Denver to load up against the run this week and really concentrate on Benson, even with a weak defense I think they can slow him down and I think he'll only have mediocre numbers this week. MJD is the kind of RB who can have a big game against a decent defense and there are some holes up that middle to be had especially when you have a more physical runner like MJD as opposed to the finesse style of Felix we saw have trouble last week. I think you start MJD and don't think twice.
