Forget about the benches, what starting lineup would you prefer in a 14 team PPR league

TEAM 1
QB-Cam Newton
RB-Trent Richardson
RB-Reggie Bush
WR-Percy Harvin
WR-Calvin Johnson
TE-Aaron Hernandez
K-Justin Tucker
DST-49ers

TEAM 2

QB-Big Ben
RB-Matt Forte
RB-Reggie Bush
WR-Percy Harvin
WR-James Jones
TE-Jimmy Graham
K-Justin Tucker
DST-Bengals

Team 2 was my team I drafted, team 1 is what my team looks like now after trades

QB's are a wash.
T Rich > Forte - T Rich has and is more consistent
Megatron is obviously better and hopefully wakes up, but James is Mr. Consistent right now and trust him more. Mega is also having knee problems.
Graham > Hern
49ers D > Bengals D

I would chose 2 b/c of the PPR factor of having Jones/Graham over Mega/Hern. This is the key. If Mega wakes up and Hern comes back healthy (again), Team 1 wins, but Team 2 seems more consistent.

really tough call though.

Team 2 slightly.  You picked up better names, but much shittier production.  Even healthy, Hernandez wouldn't pass Graham.  Forte's more consistent like he said than T-rich, but Forte's got more upside.  Cam's nicer in theory than ben, but they throw the ball a ton in pitt now, and as a Panther fan, our offense is a mess.  James Jones was a shakey WR 2 at the season's start, but now that Greg Jennings is basically no more, he's a solid option in a pass happy offense.  Megatron and Cam are nice names, but 8 games is a decent enough sample size to figure out what you should expect.  I don't see him sucking like this, but I don't see him waking up to last year.

I would take team 2 as well although as weather gets worse you will benefit with Cam over Ben. Forte is going to catch more passes than TR and if you are getting 1 full point pr then a busted up -1 yard screen to Forte gets the same as a 10 yard run from TR. Also Graham is a ton better than Hernandez imo. I think you lose more there than you gain Jones to CJ. 

I feel like you have tried to make your team an espn analysts team instead of a productive ppr team. Shoulda sold Reggie while his stock was high because you will see that Daniel Thomas will soon be there main back
