He's available in my league and two of my RB's have the same bye week next week. I need someone to fill in and I'm wondering if anybody has heard anything about Benson...

Try picking up Davenport from GB if you want a high risk-high reward back, or here are some other good options who are FAs in a lot of leagues:
Chris Brown at Hou
Pittman at NYJ
Ronnie Brown at Buffalo (Buff will probably limit him in yards though)
Brown is the best option, but Pittman could put up decent numbers as the only real backfield option for Tampa.

If Shipp is still out there he is a pretty good option, but keep an eye on what the Cards are doing. Last year they went through three or four QBs and I think they are going to do the same with the RB position this year. THere were talks about trading for Bennett from Minnesota, and he would probably get a chance to start if that everntually happens. Also, Arrington will most likely get another chance to start sometime this year.

I know, I'm just reminding him that Shipp probably won't be much of an answer for long.

Arrington had the stomach flu the first three two weeks of the season and I don't know that he was at full health in week three either. Also, the were playing from behind in the first three weeks and it is pretty hard for a RB to perform well when his team is throwing a lot to try and come back. I think Shipp is a fill-in at best and Arrington will everntually get his shot at the starting gig again and keep it this time.
But if Bennett gets traded there he will be the obvious starter untill they realise he isn't a true starter either.

He gets hurt a lot (missed a lot of time over the last three seasons), and I think he just had one good year in him. He is really fast, but doesn't have much going for him other than that. He was probably just one of those guys who catches teams off guard and then gets planned for and can't get anything done.

Yeah, only less healthy and in a worse system. Also, Dunn has heart and Bennett doesn't have much.
I don't think he is much of a receiver either, which doesn't help.
