Cedric Benson participated in his first preseason game last night for the Green Bay Packers. He did not disappoint, with 6 carries for 38 yards on the ground.
What does this mean for Madden NFL 13?
Benson brings to the table a reliable HB to close out games. His ability to run opponents over will help solidify the Packers as having the number one offense in Madden NFL 13.
James Starks, Brandon Saine, and Alex Green are all HBs who can “get it done,” but they aren’t the elite-style HB that can change the course of a game. Benson has the ability to take over games with his skill set and force opponents to game plan around him.
This is what your Green Bay Packers HB depth chart should look like in Madden NFL 13:
- James Starks
- Cedric Benson
- Brandon Saine
- Alex Green
You might be wondering why I place Starks ahead of Benson on the depth chart when I have been saying that Benson is the premiere HB in this offensive attack. It’s because of his catching ability out of the backfield. We like to use Starks in the early stages of the game to build up a lead. Once we get comfortable in the game we then switch over to Benson and grind out victories.
