So in the playoff weeks he faces Lions, @Bears, Titans. Those first two are really bad matchups, so I would have to hang on to him just to use him in week 16?
Benson will get more work than any of your running backs other than McCoy or Foster and makes a better flex play than Vereen (as of right now). If either of those guys gets hurt than wouldn't you rather have a guy like Benson getting 20 carries even if it's against tougher run defenses? He had over 100 yards from scrimmage against the Bears in week 2 so he can get it done there. Defenses won't be keying in on Benson with Rodgers throwing the ball.
