I think its going to be a whole lot of LevBell.. thats the gameplan to beat Jags, Ben will get pummeled back there if he is forced to throw but i see Bell having a monster game and not much going on for anyone else

I think you're spot on, and the Jets absolutely shredded the Jags on the ground last week too. Bell coming off 35 carries, good chance he comes close again.

Who's rolling him out there Sunday? Ben's and home and he hasn't put up a 20 spot yet, is this the week? Bell should keep the chains moving and put Ben in a good position to toss a couple in. Hopefully this is the week things click for this offense. I think he's being shy'd away from because of the matchup but I think he has big time potential at home in a potentially get right game.

310 1 td and 2 interceptions, I'm rolling with Rivers over him this week.

Difference is, the Chargers can't run block, Gordon has been ineffective as a result, and they are away... (Not that being home makes a difference when 10k home fans show up :wacko:). Fact is, Bell will get his, thus freeing up an open field for Ben in theory- the Jags run D is atrocious and they will have to have 8 in the box more than they would like. I have both QBs so I'm torn but I'm trying to talk myself into Ben at home...

He looks washed to be honest. Would not be surprised if he retires at the end of the season.


I think its a lock he retires end of season. The big question is does he make it through the season. Dude is killing me in my 2QB league ?

This is a crappy situation. You start Big Ben every week (or you stream away from his road matchups if you have that luxury) with the goal being to get the 200/250ish-2 games on the road and get what used to be guaranteed explosions of 300+ and 3-5 TDs at home. He clearly does not have that upside this season and it's hard to see why. I do not plan on starting him next week if I can find an acceptable alternative.
