    Cedric Benson or Maurice Jones-Drew?

    I'm currently unsure as to whether I should start Cedric Benson (vs. the Chiefs) or Maurice Jones-Drew (vs. the Falcons).
    Benson will probably get more carries, but Jones-Drew might get more receptions (and my league awards one point for every two receptions).
    Speaking of which, here's my league's scoring system for running backs:

    - Touchdowns = 6 points
    - Rushing Yards



    1 point for each 15 rushing yards.



    1 point for each 50 rushing yards. (This means 50 yards = 3 per 15 + 1 per 50 = 4 pts)



    2 points for each 50 rushing yards after reaching 51 yards. (101 yds = 6 per 15 + 2 per 50 + 2 per 50 after 51 = 10 pts)

    [size=7pt]Easier-to-understand version
    0-14 yds = 0 pts.



    15-29 yds = 1 pt.
    30-44 yds = 2 pts.
    45-49 yds = 3 pts.
    50-59 yds = 4 pts.
    60-74 yds = 5 pts.
    75-89 yds = 6 pts.
    90-99 yds = 7 pts.
    100 yds = 8 pts.
    101-104 yds = 10 pts.
    105-119 yds = 11 pts.
    120-134 yds = 12 pts.
    135-149 yds = 13 pts.
    150 yds = 15 pts.
    151-164 yds = 16 pts.
    165-179 yds = 17 pts.
    180-194 yds = 18 pts.
    195-199 yds = 19 pts.
    200 yds = 20 pts.
    201-209 yds = 22 pts.[/size]

    - Fumbles Lost = -1 point
    - Receiving Yards = 1 point for each 15 receiving yards.
    - Receptions = Award 1 point for each 2 receptions.


    What do you think, sirs?

    Personaly, I'de go with the full time starter Benson...




    Chicago can't afford to go down 0-2, and I think they will try to pound the ball against KC...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    You gotta like the full time player in Benson and versus KC he is probably going to score some as well. If Chicago was going against anyone halfway decent I would say go the other way, but, as bad as the Chicago O is they will get a ton of chances in this game, and some in really good field position.
    Good Luck

    Considering Jones-Drew put up 5 pints today, I hope for your sake you started Benson.
