I know its considered crazy to bench your studs but I'm really leaning towards benching Green this week vs Jacksonville. 

 

Jacksonville is the best fantasy team in the league against WRs and that Cincy O-line is going to get destroyed by Sacksonville.

 

So I'm benching Green and starting M.Thomas, Baldwin and Cooper instead. 

 

What would you do?

OK, so I did some research and looked at #1 WRs vs Jax this year.

 

Week 1 - HOU - Hopkins put up 55 yards + 1 TD (11.5 pts)

Weeks 2-4 they faced TEN, BAL, NYJ - 3 teams without a stud WR1 and best performance was Matthews with 43 yards

Week 5 - PIT - Brown put up 157 yards (15.7 pts)

Week 6 - LA - Who's the #1 there?  Woods put up 70 yards

Week 7 - IND - Hilton only 27 yards

 

So if you consider Green a stud, then the hope is 50 + TD I guess???

Hilton's putting up 27 yards against everybody. 

Hopkins was not catching passes from Watson in week 1. 

Woods putting up 70 yards is not impressive on the Jags part.

Like you said, Ten, Bal, NYJ nothing special...

 

It's great to see the Jags improving, but Green is still a must start, always. 

 

When I have tough dilemmas in fantasy, I ask myself which situation would piss me off more...

Would you be more annoyed if you start Green and he has a quiet game, or if you bench Green and he goes off? That should help
