Drop Felix Jones for Ben Tate??? WHIR

Postby rclement3915 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 8:02 am

I currently own Felix Jones, who i thought was in for a breakout season like many.
Hes my RB4 (Rice,Mendenhall,Fred Jackson) but hes off to a slow start (alothough 2 pretty decent run Def) and already banged up.

SO, should i keep Jones and see what happens???? or should i nab Tate, who while Fosters out...is posting top 10 numbers??

NOTE: Rice and Jones have bye weeks in 2 weeks (wk5)


thanks for any insight....leave links and ill glady return the favor

I say hold on to Jones -- I like his upside in the long term (especially weeks 6-10 where he has favorable match-ups).

Tate is a stud right now, but that could be short-lived.

And, of course, if you can find a way to carry both Jones AND Tate, pull the trigger.

Thx for helping with mine! I think in your situation (3 solid RBs) I'd take a flier on Tate. Remember that Foster got the gig which was supposed to be Tate's because Tate was hurt. I don't see why HOU wouldn't roll with Ben as long he's crushing it, and we've seen Jones be disappointing before (I thought Jones was gonna be a breakout too, but I also thought Lynch was...meh) I have Tate and foster on a couple teams and am starting Tate over Foster, and I'm looking to deal Jones myself. Good luck! ;-D

What kind of league still has Tate as a free agent?

No, you gotta hold on to Jones for awhile. He still has good upside. Tate won't be a long-term option at all.

Please help with mine!

I would say go for Tate. You have 3 solid RB's Jones will have a hard time breaking the lineup. Just dinged up his shoulder. Jones could very well end up with better numbers than Tate, but I think the ceiling is alot higher with Tate. Remember how Foster got the job..... Tate was the starting RB and went down.... Foster took over and had a breakout year. We could be looking at a simiar situation this year. Tate was the more talented back coming out of college.

Good luck!

Since you have 2 solid RBs already, I'd go with Tate. More potential up side with Tate than with Jones in my opinion.

Do you have anyone else to drop?..Does it have to be position for position? I'm not high on F.Jones at all even though I know many are. If he is the only 1 that you can drop for him..it might be worth the chance. I would guess that you have someone else to drop besides him.

drop has to be position for position
10 team PPR...
So of the 4 RB i have, Felix Jones would be the only one id really think about dropping so far (Ray Rice, Mendenhall, Fred Jackson the other 3)

Tate was owned... but week one the owner dropped him and picked up Ward when he was named starter.
