If Spiller doesn't play and Jackson won't be limited, start Fred. But those are big if's. Safest play is Benson. Turner can't keep up the uptempo ATL offense and Jacquizz is getting a lot of playing time. Stay away.

If Fred Jackson is good to go I don't know how you could play Benson over him. However I do think green bay is going to start to run more to open things up.

Fred if hes 100%, if not or you are not sold go Benson.

What the guys above dont understand is that fjax isnt 100% spiller is just as likely to play as fred jackson and fred jackson has to be a bit rusty after not playing a full nfl game since preseason. Start Cedric Benson

Turner's value has gone down this year and will continue to plummet, but if there were a week to use him, I think this is one of them. He did well last week and the Panthers are giving up the 4th most carries (yardage).

I hope you got to read my post and went with that logic man, Turner posted me a huge 30 points and kept me in the running this week to still win. I'm 2 points ahead with Martellus Bennett - TE and Julius Peppers - DE left to play. My opponent has Henry Melton - DE left.

Turner still has it in him. I don't know if he'll be much past this year, but hell, he was showing receiving which he hasn't in the past.
