Start Foster AND Tate? WHIR

Postby Habslive » Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:47 am

PPR league
My team

QB: Cutler, Roethlisberger
RB: Foster, Charles, Spiller, Tate, Jacquizz
WR: Green, Colston, Sidney Rice, Kendall Wright
TE: Cook, Gresham

Foster's condition (I know he's playing but still) adds some uncertainty to my flex. I'm going to start Foster, who is my best flex option?
I'm going to lay off of Spiller for the time being, and it becomes a decision between Tate, Rice, and Wright.

Tate: Added touches with Foster's questionable knee
Rice: A bit risky but huge upside- story of his career.
Wright: Starting against what was a terrible NE pass defense last season, but I already have Cook.

Is starting Foster and Tate the way to go on this one?

Go Tate. He will get the most touches from your bench.

Def Start both. They could rush for like 200 yds combined and multiple TD's.

In this case I do like the duo. Basically instead of expecting 18-20 points from Foster we should expect 10-12 and 10-12 from Tate, too.

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=518880
10 rushing yards - 1 pt
10 receiving yards - 1 pt
20 passing yards - 1 pt
All TDs - 6 pts (QBs favored)

I've got both and I'm leaning the same way to play both. My option for Tate in Flex is Titus Young in a PPR league, which I don't think has as much upside (this week). Good luck! ;-D

I would go with Foster and Tate. Wright and Rice are not going to get many targets.
