Keep or sell?? Ben Tate. WHIR!!

Postby rclement3915 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 5:37 pm

Forgive me If u were involved in my trade post.

But, I'm a Ben Tate owner and worried with foster returning. Am I rushing to a conclusion? Or is my worry legit?

My RB:rice Mendenhall f Jax Tate



The foster owner has the #1 WW and is picking up Daniel Thomas.
Should I swap Thomas for Tate? Or should I stay put and see what happens with Foster this week.

My only other legit option is James Starks who's on the WW as well.... But I don't think the GB RBBC has a ton of value for me over Tate or Thomas.

All help is appreciated and I'll certainly return the favor to all replies.

not owning Foster and keeping Tate over Thomas is just crazy. This week Tate might see 1/2 the carries but from next week on its going to be Fosters team. Tate will only have value if Foster goes down. I would trade him for Thomas in a heart beat.

At best, Tate will be in a timeshare with Foster when he returns. Thomas has established himself as an every down back and he'll continue to get more carries I think.

Yeah but he wont even be in a timeshare. He will go back to the bench. Lucky to get over 7 carries a game if you ask me. You have to trade him for Thomas. If you dont do this then you are not a very smart fantasy owner lol!@

I think Tate will still have value bc hammy's seem to linger... but to keep him over Thomas is just crazy. The offense in MIA is starting to run through him, so regardless of Bush's presence there, he WILL be the lead back. I'd definitely take him over Tate.

Yes do the Tate for Thomas trade....

If you have bench room I might still take Starks......sounds like Grant is having serious issues........
