  • Start or sit Eno Benjamin in fantasy football? That will be a popular question among managers ahead of Saints vs. Cardinals on Thursday Night Football.
  • Benjamin could certain handle the load tonight if James Conner is injured, but what should fantasy football players do if both running backs are active?
  • Using the Action Network's updated fantasy football rankings for Week 7, we break down how our experts are approaching Benjamin tonight.

Many fantasy football managers have a key decision on their hands for Week 7 when it comes to whether to start or sit Arizona Cardinals running back Eno Benjamin.

With the Cardinals taking on the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football, fantasy football managers have a small window to decide whether Benjamin will be in their lineups.

Earlier today, that decision was a lot more difficult considering that Arizona running back James Conner was also in the picture.

Obviously, an active Conner would have meant fewer touches for Benjamin, lowering his fantasy football value in Week 7.

However, news has since surfaced that Conner will be inactive on Thursday night, putting Benjamin in line for a massive workload against New Orleans.

So what does this mean for fantasy football managers? Is Benjamin an automatic start tonight? Or should managers still approach him with some caution.

Let's turn to the Action Network's latest fantasy football rankings for Week 7 to see where they stand on Benjamin tonight.

Eno Benjamin Fantasy Football Start or Sit?

Prior to Conner's injury news, Benjamin checked in as RB29 in standard scoring leagues and RB25 in PPR formats.

But now with Conner sidelined on Thursday night, Benjamin is a much more attractive fantasy football start.

For example, the Action Network's Chris Raybon has moved Benjamin up to the high teens in his personal fantasy football running back rankings for Week 7, making him a low-end RB2 and a solid option if you need a replacement for Conner or are plagued with other injury or bye-week issues.
