I don't think they will pal DD just to get him some game experience. The best player plays.
Beachum is a rookie making his first start.
DD would be a rookie making his first start.
(Foster plays in either scenario.)
In my mind:
DD & Foster > Beachum & Foster
In other words, DD & Beachum are BOTH rookies... but, DD has far more talent... and, DD was the starter in pre-season (whereas, Beachum is a third-string player). As you said, the best player plays... which would be DD.
[Note: Only if DD is healthy.]
