while i can see your points on Felix.... i went ahead a pulled the trigger.

For the next few weeks and as long as Fosters out, i see Tate as a top 10 play...and if Foster keeps trying to comeback every week, this could linger on all season.
Jones could def still turn it around, but hes got an injury history...and i cant imagine a #1RB, carrying the load for the rest of season with a separated shoulder without missing some time.

well hopefully it works out in my favor, Thanks for all the input.

Hey man you helped me out with my question, sorry I got to yours a little late. I think you made the right choice though. Tate will be a huge play in the short term and still retain value later on. I like the idea of selling him high too, when Foster starts to get fully healthy. Jones is an injury waiting to happen and not hugely productive anyway.

I'd go with Tate, you are fine at RB. Tate does nothing to hurt your team, and may be a better play than one of the other three while Foster is out being a douche.

thanx for the help on mine. sorry i am late. i would have pulled the trigger on Tate because i think Foster is going to keep tweaking the hamstring, Houston has the best OL in the NFL, they run way more than they pass contrary to belief, and Dallas because of their weak secondary is going to be passing a lot. i like Felix Jones but a separated shoulder for a runner like him is almost as bad as a hammy for someone like Foster. good luck! thanx for the help on mine. even tho Minny has the worst OL in the league i won't sit ADP. i don't want him on the bench when he breaks that long one. if i had Arian Foster i would be playing him over Mendy and no one would tell me otherwise. i feel that way about Tate. we shall see. i tend to over think these things. the one thing i do know is Foster won't see a carry this week unless the whole team gets injured. ;-7

Do what others have suggested. Take Tate now, who's hot, and then trade him for something else. It's as you said, Jones has been underperforming, and we don't know if he'll ever perform at all.
