Cedric is one of the least likeable players in fantasy, not only because of his character and stone hands but low ypc average and lack of any upside whatsoever.
For this week, though, Benson is a great play. The Denver defense showed no ability to stop the run, allowing for Darren McFadden to run wild as the Raiders totaled 190 yards on the ground.
Last week, the Bengals relied on Benson to ease in rookie QB Andy Dalton, and this week figures to be similar. Dalton is dealing with an injured wrist, so they may lean on Benson even more.
Benson is a good bet for close to 30 touches, which makes him a very startable option against the Broncos Sunday.
If you drafted him, chances are it was around the sixth or seventh round as a low RB2 or RB3. PPR obviously changes his value, but Benson is a better play than Mark Ingram (vs. Chicago), DeAngelo Williams (vs. Green Bay), and maybe even Shonn Greene (vs. Jaguars).
Other good plays this week include Jahvid Best (vs. Kansas City) and Felix Jones (at San Francisco).
