Trade Felix Jones for Ben Tate??? WHIR

Postby rclement3915 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 8:22 pm

10 Team, PPR Scoring

i currently have Felix Jones as my RB4... with Ray Rice Mendenhall and Fred Jackson ahead of him.

I can only have 4 RB's on the roster...and have been offered Tate for Jones(guys a cowboys fan and thin at RB).

I liked Jones alot going into the season as a possible breakout candidate.... but his injury history,current separated shoulder... and his performances so far have been pretty lacluster. Should i pull the trigger on Tate...whos a top 10 RB while Fosters out( and who knows how long his hammy will give him trouble if he keeps trying to play every week, Foster himself got the job in a similar situation) or should i hold onto Jones and hope he can stay healthy and start producing??? Ray Rice has a bye week5, so someone will need to start in 2 weeks for him.

the other small factor persuading me.... is that the team im playing this week, has Foster and he is also going after Tate.
So this could potentially block him from picking him up this week... forcing him to start a questionable Foster or DeAngelo Williams/Pierre Thomas.

help me out... i need to decide by 2morro morning and am leaning towards taking Tate.

thanks and leave links and ill glady respong.

I would definitely take Tate in your situation. Felix is frustrating me just as much as Shonn Greene is... I have both in one of my leagues and I am looking highly into trading them both. I dnt think Tate will take over Foster's job but seeing as hes proven himself the first two weeks, he will get a hefty share of the load once foster comes back. Thats a scary combo for upcoming Hou opponents.

I say take Tate for a few weeks and drop him/trade him on his bye if Foster is healthy. He will put up far more short term points. This week alone will make that trade worth it. Jones is on my bench and worries me. Not just the injury

Good luck

I kind of like Felix still. I'm not holding much hope that Tate will be the starter for much longer, then he will sit the bench and be useless. I still think Felix can bounce back and have a decent year but it's close
