**Do I dare start Ben Tate over CJ2k? WHIR 100%**

Postby nandaman » Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:30 pm

Hello all -

16 tearm PPR league.

I have Chris Johnson, Ben Tate, DeMarco Murry, and Chris Ivory.

Clearly starting Murry this week, but do I dare start Ben Tate @ TB over Chris Johnson @ Carolina? My gut was yes, maybe just because I'm so pissed at Johnson - but thinking he is still a better play. Thoughts? I can only start 2 RBs.

Happy to help in return, 100% - leave a link! Thanks in advance...

Start Tate with confidence. He's eclipsed 100 yards in two of the last three games, and that was with Foster getting a heavy workload. Houston is probably the best running team in the league with a very solid offensive line.

I like Ben Tate as well. He is running really well lately, and TB has been garbage on run defense these last 5 weeks. A bit risky, but most likely will be the right choice.

Help on mine? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=507972

Tate is more dependable then CJ2k so far this season and that's even with his back up role or 2nd string role since week 4..?

You guys are crazy, I dont care that CJ has sucked.....he will out score Tate. Dont look for Tate to contuine putting up big numbers. He only had an increase in carries because the game was a blowout. Plus CJ is playin carolina this week.

I agree...I'd give CJ 1/2 K one more week. He has a good matchup and has shown some life. I'm high on Tate, but don't think I could start him over CJ this week. Next week may be another story, though...

Tate had a good week, including a TD, but I stuck with CJ2K vs the terrible Panthers Defense,a nd am glad I did....!
