Is Tate NOW a better Flex option over Maclin/Decker?

Postby e5volcano » Sat Sep 08, 2012 1:12 am

Roster and league info in settings (dropped ridley for Tate)
With news that Arian Foster's knee is sore and that he is questionable, is Tate worth a sart as flex over Maclin or Decker(still havent decided between the two)
Or should I start Tate as RB2 over DeAngelo and start maclin/decker as flex

start tate out of the 3 if foster is out, that game will be a blowout and just too tasty to consider benching tate.

if foster plays go with maclin. DJAX will be seeing hayden the entire day leaving maclin with a very big game potential as the eagles should roll cleveland and djax possibly not getting much of it.

i really like decker this year but this week is just not good. pittsburgh d is old and slow but they are no joke, they will def put a lid on decker.

so tate if foster out. maclin if foster plays.

Tate for sure if Foster is out.


If Fosters playing, you could still roll with Tate if you wanted to gamble...he got carries in a split load before and torched miami.

Maclins got a great matchup tho, and Joe Haden is SUSPENDED, not covering DJax, so his chances of a decent game and RZ looks is even higher.

help me out?

If Haden is playing, would Maclin still be a better to start over Decker? I am thinking that Haden would mainly cover DeSean Jackson, no?

Maclin is going to have a big game tomorrow. He needs to be in your lineup. Tate as RB2 for sure if Foster is a no go. If Foster plays, I think it is a toss up between Williams and Tate. J Stewart is a little banged up as well.
