Cedric Benson breaks 100 all-purpose in Week 4, emerging as fantasy option

Mary Langenfeld-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson broke 100 all-purpose yards in Week 4. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson had another impressive outing in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints. On Sunday, Benson ran the ball efficiently for the Pack, finishing with 18 attempts for 84 yards. He also had four receptions for 22 yards, though, he did not find the end zone.

Fantasy Analysis: Benson had a lot of doubters this offseason and even after he arrived in Green Bay. But he has been running as hard as any running back right now, and he's giving the staff a reason to incorporate him into the game plan. Benson was available in a lot of leagues on waivers/free agency, but now, he should find himself in an awful lot of lineups. If Benson stays healthy, he could be a great flex and even a decent starter in most fantasy leagues.
