Standard scoring non-ppr.

Should I start Benson or Sproles?

Here's my line-up

Benson has been averaging 20.5 carries/game so far this year, whereas Sproles is stuck in a 3-way RB committee in NO. Based on touches alone, I think you have to go with Benson.

Would appreciate any help you could give me viewtopic.php?f=44&t=499096

Well I am going to say Sproles. 49ers have been good against the run this year so far and I feel like Sproles will be involved a lot in the Saints game this week.

Wow. that's a tough one. On paper, in non-ppr, it sure seems like Benson would be the best play, simply from the number of touches. But, like cowboy said, SF is tough against the run. were 6th last year, and continuing that trend this year.

I would probably still go Benson, but there is a lot of downside there.
