When To Bench Players

Chat: Chat with AJ Mass - SportsNation - ESPN:

"Jon (Chicago) At what point do you bench your non-producing starters for your sleepers? For instance, Choo and Pence are starters while McGehee and Headley on riding the bench.

AJ Mass (11:10 AM) We're talking about benching, and not cutting them, so in a daily league, I'd certainly have no issue making the swap now and riding the streaks out. In a weekly league, you have to be a lot more cautious about making a move. If you have several slumpers, you probably should swap out at least half and hope you make the right calls."

How about Michael Bourn, Julio Borbon, Jay Bruce....
