Bensonn to split with LJ ?


Recommended Posts

NFL Network reports that Bengals RBs Cedric Benson and Larry Johnson will share carries against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Apparently, the Bengals want to ease up on Benson's workload heading into the playoffs.


Makes perfect sense...no reason to give the dude 30+ carries when they have another RB that can easily take 10-15 touches and produce well. Benson will still get his 15-20 touches....but for Benson owners, its gotta be a bummer.

I'll believe it when I see it. The "experts" were calling for LJ to split carries last week. If Cinci is going to run Benson 30+ times against Detroit, I have a hard time believing we'll see a "split" when Cinci is playing more relevant teams, with home field still at stake.


LJ should get more than the 2 carries he got last week, but there is no way we're seeing a split.

Let's keep in mind what we are talking here.


20 or so carries for Benson. Not 30 or so.


Let's be careful to go too far.


Saying Benson will split is misleading. They said Benson is the guy still. Just instead of going 35-3 for Benson, you may be looking at 20 or so to 5-8 or so.


Any more of a split than that and I'd be shocked.
