Benson or M. Bush?

Postby nhmtns » Sat Nov 26, 2011 2:35 pm

Benson vs. Browns
or
M. Bush vs. Bears

Bush seems like the obvious choice based on recent performance, but the Bears' tough run defense could focus on stopping Bush since the Raiders WR corps is so banged up. The Bengals will likely get AJ Green back, which forces the Browns' D to respect Cincy's passing game more. This might open things up for Benson. I'm also thinking the Bengals will be up late in the game and just hand off to Benson a bunch. He's gone for 100+ yards and a TD in his last two games against Cleveland.

So taking all this into consideration, who do I start this week? (non-ppr)

If I had them both I'd stick with the Bushman.

Benson is a decent option this week but I wouldn't start him over Bush. The vikings have a solid run d as well and Bush received a heavy workload and tore them up. Also the bears nearly give up 5.0 ypc to running backs, sometimes the numbers can be misleading.

Thanks. Anyone else have an opinion?

Leaning toward Michael Bush at this point, but still hesitant to bench Benson because of the match-up. Probably can't go wrong with either.

I've got both too and have decided to start Bush. I had simular thoughts, but feel good about the choice.
Good luck and go Bush!
