Flex help - Benson, Graham or Carter - WHIR!

Postby Honeybadgers » Wed Oct 12, 2011 2:45 pm

Looking for input on who I should start in my flex position. It's a 12 team PPR league and my opponent is slightly favored so would rather go for the sure thing versus the potential for a home run.

My Choices are:

Benson - He was a major disappointment last week but could bounce back vs. Indy who is giving up a lot of yards on the ground.

Graham (TB) - Obvious only an option only if L. Blount doesn't go. Going against a good NO run defense.

Delon Carter (Indy) - Should be the starter if Addai is out again but could be splitting time but should get the goal line carries.


To me Benson should be the choice as he is for sure the starter and going against the easiest team but the ESPN projections (which I don't put a lot of faith in) had Benson at 12, Graham at 20(!) and Carter at 13. So now i'm reconsidering a bit.

Thanks.

I would stick with Benson. He had 24 carries against a tough Jaguar defense. I know he only gained 53 yards but at least we know the Bengals are committed to run the ball. He should have a much easier day against the Colts and if he gets at least 24 carries again he should put up great numbers.

Benson so long as he isn't suspended this week. If he is, Graham could be a better option than you think against the Saints.

you have to go Benson in this scenario ... Battle ripped the Colts for 119 last week and Benson is better than him.

both other options would be sharing carries if they take over duties.

I'm gonna have to agree with everyone else. Benson isn't a back up and just because your starting doesn't mean lots of points, look at Redman last week.

Thanks for the input fellas. Still not sure why Graham is projected for 20 pts and Benson only 12. Still makes me a little nervous but Benson is gonna have to find the endzone eventually, right?

Anyone else?
