studs you are benching or at least thinking about benching

Recommended Posts

Never bench your stud but what if they are currently not quite stud material.

 

I'm not sure what to do with Beckham. He has not been bad, but not as good as expected either.

 

Which stud is causing you issues?

With Mixon back and Gio out, I'm thinking of sitting Hunt for Mixon this week.

I wish I woulda benched Hunt for Michel, but I had a few beers and didn't get to it. Other than that I was thinking of doing the same on Hill, sitting him for John Brown this week.

I'm strongly considering sitting Mahomes for Roethlisberger.

Why wouldn't you?

In my current drunken state, this seems like a no brainer :dunno:

 

Tell you what, tho...That damn Mahomes is pretty talented, right? Flick of the wrist seems to equal 30+ yards downfield on a rope.

Very fun to watch :thumbsup:

Don’t be scared of Jax defense. Even Eli threw for 224 and Beckham caught 11-110 yards against the great Ramsey.

I'm contemplating having Arod take a seat for Dalton again. I did it last week and it paid off. Now Arod sounds healthier but his WRs are all beat to crap. If he is forced to throw to Equanimeous St. Brown all day I don't see him putting up a bunch of points.

i'm thinking of benching Stephen Davis...

 

Are we talking former Panther/Redskin Stephen Davis? I wonder how this guy is doing. Last I heard (several years ago now) he was having serious post-concussion symptoms. Hopefully he feels better.

Probably won't be able to pull the trigger as it seems over-thinking it, but debating sitting Mahomes for Wilson.

This I wouldn't do. I'm trying everything I can do to overcome Wilson on my roster, short of dropping him. He's rapidly heading toward the biggest QB bust of the season.

So we have 5 of us considering or actually BENCHING MAHOMES, the #1 QB in fantasy....for:

 

Cam

Big Ben

Wilson

Brees

 

and now me - Cousins

 

I personally wouldn't sit Mahomes for Ben or Wilson...

 

But Cam and Brees are reasonable...and I believe Cousins is reasonable.

 

Does anyone disagree with benching Mahomes for Cousins this week?

I'm benching him for Rivers. If you have an option on your team currently with a better matchup, I'd think about it. I really feel the Jax D is real.

Im also benching Freeman for Lindsay. In addition, in a 2QB league Im benching Rodgers for Flacco and A Smith. Finally, Hyde has been a stud but benching him for A Jones and Connor. Starting Hunt he is gonna feed in bad weather...

Thanks Bra, you are correct and I had to go with my saying, never bench your stud and big time players step up in big time games.

It really took off in 2000 I think when Skins were getting ready to face the Bucs with Lynch, Brooks, etc. He ended up running for 150+ and a TD. Never bench Stephen Davis was born.
