I usually go by the maxim of not benching your studs, but considering my options at QB this week.

I have Brady as my starter, normally would never dream of benching him, but his matchup this week is incredibly difficult. This is ESPN standard scoring, the Seahawks have only given up 10+ points against QBs once this year, and that was 12 to Tony Romo. They've held Aaron Rogers to 9, and Cam Newton to 7.

My backup is Christian Ponder. While he's not fantasy gold, he's going up against the Redskins, who aren't defensive stalwarts by any means. Is it worth playing Brady as the obviously better QB, or play the matchup with Ponder?
