Sit Foster for Benson? Keep going back and forth. WHIR

Postby joegoody41 » Sun Sep 18, 2011 1:27 pm

Foster is supposedly going to get something like 60% of the carries he'd usually get, but MIA was awful against the run last week, so even with the reduced carries, he could have a huge day. Then again, it's a hamstring injury, so could get aggravated at any time, and last week showed that Tate is a pretty capable backup. Might HOU rest Foster once the game is more in hand?

Benson didn't look great until the 4th quarter last week, but should get plenty of carries against a DEN defense that couldn't stop the run against OAK. He's not a factor in the passing game, however, so if Cincy ends up down by a lot, he won't see as much action.

This is one of those where I'm probably over-thinking it, and should just go with Foster, but something has me worried about him being limited this week. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Leave a link.

I have Foster in one of my leagues, and I am starting him over backs I like more than Benson. Dude was the top fantasy back last year. They rested him, and he practiced fully. Dalton is banged up in CIN, so benson mights see tougher running as is.

Hou is a potent offense. Foster is a great resceiving back, with an excellent o line. I think you are overthinking here. Start Foster.

I still think that the line in HOU will allow Foster to run free even with that. A lot of people are saying 15-20 carries and with that offense I'd still go for Foster.
