Green Bay had the 26th-best unit against the run last year, despite holding Matt Forte to 55 yards in Week 1. Benson's been good recently, with 108 total yards and a TD in the first game, and over 100 total yards in the last three games of 2008. He's definitely a startable No. 2 RB option.
Fantasy owners worldwide are tantalized by the idea that Ochocinco and Palmer can revert back to their '05-07 forms. Could that happen? It's not out of the realm of possibility, but with the egg they laid against the Broncos in Week 1, it's hard to believe that it will happen this week against a good Packers D.
Henry caught only one pass against the Broncos in Week 1. He has seemingly vast potential, but has never harnessed it. There's no reason to believe that he'll be able to do it this week against Al Harris and Charles Woodson.
Caldwell has tremendous physical gifts and was targeted 8 times by Carson Palmer during Week 1, most of any Bengal WR. With Henry and Coles not grabbing the No. 2 WR spot, Caldwell really has a chance to step up this year.
Coles had a lousy start to the season with a couple drops and only one catch. He's a ten year vet, and his best years may be behind him. Coles last 1000 yard season was 2006, and if he keeps dropping passes a young buck like Caldwell could take his spot.
Good news for Bengals fans, this week the game won't come down to a miracle play. This game will be decided by the nearly 300 yards Rodgers smacks down on them. If Packers WRs had held onto a couple balls on Sunday night, they could have blown the Bears out of Lambeau.
Jennings is an elite fantasy WR, no matter what the metric. With a stud QB to get him the ball, and a quality RB who deserves respect on play action (as in his 50-yard TD pass vs. Chicago), Jennings is a no-brainer start every week.
He's fallen off the last couple years after catching 47 passes for 676 yards during his rookie campaign. He caught no passes in Week 1, but will likely have a few balls thrown his way against the Bengals.
