On Sunday, Green Bay Packers new addition Cedric Benson had below-par performance to say the least. Against the league's best rush defense from 2011, Benson carried nine times for 18 yards. He also had no catches coming out the backfield.
Fantasy Implications: While the acquisition of Benson was interesting, it did not seem to effect the way the Packers game-plan. This team is centered around Aaron Rodgers, and while there is the slight possibility Benson could prosper in this system, its unlikely and yet to be seen. Benson is a flex at best in most leagues, but should be riding the bench until there is evidence he is worth starting.
