Re: F express - only between Jay & Church???

How will that relieve pressure on the Brighton Line, which provides express from south Brooklyn?

I'm not sure that it's meant to.

How will it benefit the riders with the longest commutes, namely those coming from further south?

If you're coming from further south, you now get an express train that's (hopefully) slightly quicker to get you into Manhattan.

Since the service will be peak direction only, why not use the middle track from Kings Hwy to Church Av as well?

Because the section south of Church Avenue doesn't have anywhere near enough ridership to justify bypassing any stations. Ridership at all the stations south of Church combined is apparently just barely high enough to justify a trial of express service for their sake; there certainly aren't enough people boarding south of Kings Highway to justify running express that far down.
