Ahman Green vs Cin (32nd vs the run)

I think Benson is going to be horrible no matter who he is playing. He has no value IMO.
Green is a backup, but I think last week he got a goaline carry. I know he backs up Slaton, but if he gets the goaline carries, then I would go with him.

You should have a 4th option that reads "I'm screwed" ;)
I vote for Benson. He is the starter. Yea, the Bengals suck, but he's going to touch the ball 20 times. Ahman Green may touch it 4 or 5 times. The odds favor Benson.

I took Green. I think you need to make a trade.:2cents:

I traded my depth to upgrade my starters. These guys are a bye-week fillin for Ryan Grant. I'll probably cut whichever guy i dont start. They both have terrible matchups for the rest of the year after this sunday. Frank Gore has a bye next week and I'll probably start Torain in his place.
7 of the 15 guys on my roster have a week 9 bye!

Green has gotten a decent amount of carries when he's been healthy. Benson is the starter in Cin he didnt do much against the steelers....but perry didnt get a single carry

Declared the starter shortly before the kickoff in Week 7, Benson didn't impress, but he did enough to get another shot facing a far more fantasy-friendly matchup this Sunday. Only one team -- the Chiefs -- has allowed more rushing touchdowns than Houston's 11, so if there's any time to call Benson a flex option, it's this one. But don't go wild with your expectations; he's still brutal as a blocker
He's making a case to step into a straight split of the rushing chores with Steve Slaton, that is... [Read More] He's making a case to step into a straight split of the rushing chores with Steve Slaton, that is, for as long as he can remain healthy enough to do it. In Week 7 Green had 14 rushing attempts to Slaton's 17, which indicates about as even a split as it gets. The matchup says Green is a borderline flex play, but it's tough to bank on a No. 2 back running behind a starter off to such a hot start.

....ah, guess I haven't been paying attention to Green. I didn't think he was getting that many carries. I still like Benson, but Green ain't a bad option either.

I think i'd go with Green. They're both pretty much spent, but Ahman might actually score a TD.

Gez that's tough... I'd go with Benson just because he should get more touches.

Boldin or Lance Moore??
The latest on boldin..
Cardinals: Boldin likely to play
10/25/08 09:32 AM
Coach Ken Whisenhunt did not make a guarantee, but noted that Anquan Boldin is likely to play Sunday at Carolina, according to the East Valley Tribune. Whisenhunt said, "We�ll see how �Q� feels when we get to Carolina. It looks good. He�s had a good week of practice. He�s done just about everything. At the same time, I don�t want to say for sure that he�s going to play until we actually travel there." Boldin added, "I�m feeling good. I hope nothing changes until game time."
This is encouraging news for fantasy owners, but he could be limited in the game, and the Panthers currently field one No. 2 ranked pass defense.

Supposed to rain in London (surprise, surprise) and I'm betting they don't take care of their fields like the NFL grounds crews do....so I think it'll be a crappy playing surface, plus I've been reading Colston might play.
Boldin's got a tough matchup but I think the Cards will be throwing a lot...

Remember last years game in London? mini-mud bowl...all they could was run the ball
