Your choices for RB-2:
Marion Barber (getting to be like he used to be TD machine)
Javon Ringer (stealing carries from CJ4, may be used heavily 2nd half)
Bernard Scott (handcuff to your #2 back benson) - most ideal.

I don't own Benson actually.

Tate would be nice, but that will still leave me with Jacobs and Stewart only for next week when Mendenhall is on bye.

I'd consider picking up Tate and one of the other waiver RB's (maybe Barber) and letting DHB and the Texans D go.

Here's why,
Packers will be your starting D pretty much every week right? Is the Texans D just taking up a roster spot (and on bye next week anyway)?
With other WR's you don't need DHB (although he could pick up targets if Ford is out awhile but still probably wouldn't start on your team).
Perhaps you could trade with the Foster owner for a RB. Tate plus a WR for an RB upgrade?

I picked up the Texans for the Packers bye week, yes. And I'm holding on to DHB for one more week with Jacoby Ford possibly out. If DHB has a good game, I'll probably trade him away.

As for Tate, like I said, I'd grab him up, but I'll still only have Jacobs and Stewart for Mendenhall's bye week. The biggest problem of all though is that only 4 out of the 10 teams are actually still playing, everyone else has forgotten about the league or doesn't change their lineup. The guy with Foster is one of those guys that isn't active. :-[

Got him in there, glad I picked him up. And you still think dropping Decker is a good move? He slumped for a couple of weeks, but he got 6 catches for 72 yards and a TD against the Lions in Week 8 (13 points) and 3 catches for 47 yards and a TD against the Raiders (10 points). He still is Tebow's #1 target and it seems like he's producing again. If he doesn't produce this week, I'll probably drop somebody for Brown.

i hope watching today's game answers it, 2 passes for tebow, although i believe the TD was to decker, if there are any remotely better options on the waiver ie. antonio brown, I would make the changes.
