Would you start Ben Tate over Chris Johnson?!

Postby nandaman » Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:03 am

I am in a 16 team PPR league - I can start TWO RBs.

I have:

Chris Johnson
Ben Tate
CJ Spiller
Jahvid Best

I am starting Best and Johnson...but clearly have been underwhelmed with his performance this year. Would you start Ben Tate who is supposed to get most of the work load this week over Chris Johnson??

Input is appreciated...

I would honestly play Tate until I see some real production from CJ. I've owned CJ in the past and he has a very high ceiling, but also a very low floor depending on the defense he is playing. Denver should allow CJ to go off especially with a respectful passing threat from Britt and Washington, but Tate is the main man for the Texans now and has two good weeks in the books already. In addition, Tate will not have to share the ball as much in week 3 with Ward and Foster sidelined. Slaton will be in the mix, but I personally am not worried about him much. I wouldn't argue with you either way though if you decided to play CJ though.
