M. Bush/Martin vs Maclin/Benson? *WHIR

Postby jberends » Wed Sep 26, 2012 6:11 pm

I have Matthews as my RB1, and then likely go with Michael Bush and Doug Martin as my RB2 and Flex.
I have Julio and Austin as my starting WRs.

Do I consider at all putting Maclin or Benson in my lineup in place of either running back? Maybe I wait to see reports this week about Matt Forte and Maclin's health?

Let me know your thoughts on this. My lineup is posted below.

Post your link and I WHIR. Thanks in advance!

I would start Martin either way. I do not see Forte playing this week so I also would start Bush. However if Forte does play Maclin is a good play too.

Forte practiced and had no swelling so I'm thinking he may be suiting up this weekend. If he doesn't, Bush has a lot of value . I'd say he's probably on par with Benson's value against the Saints the weekend. Benson is no Jamaal Charles, but the Saints defense is out of whack right now so he could be poised for a big game.

Thanks for the help.

Any chance I should put Benson in over Martin? I'm hearing some talk about Benson's possible big week, and Martin has not been doing much special so far.
