Ben Tate Predicament

Postby Bespo89 » Mon Oct 08, 2012 1:58 pm

So basically Ben Tate is likely out tonight vs the Jets. I am down 5 points with Foster and Tate going tonight, and Bilal Powell (backup rb for Jets) on my bench. I know what your thinking, what's the big deal if you have Foster and he is done down 5, right??? Wrong. I saw Aaron Rodgers and the Packers D put up 3 points when the guy needed 5 a couple Monday nights ago against the Seahawks. Anything can happen!!! Here is my question...

Should I start Bilal Powell in the flex position, and have Foster and Powell squeeze 5 points for me tonight, or just leave Tate and relie on Foster to get those 5. Seems easy since Foster is a beast but anything can happen here ppl.

Comments and suggestions are open please!! Thanks :-)

Just kidding. The jets have one of the worst rushing defenses in the league and I think Foster will get your 5 easy. You have until game time. If Tate is definitely out, then stick Bilal in. If he's not definitely out, then I'd put him in. I think an injured Tate facing NYJ even backing up Arian is better than Bilal facing HOU.

Good luck

Hey I appreciate the advice! I know I am probably over stressing about this having Foster going tonight but anything can happen, right? Think I will lean towards your strategy closer to game time. Thanks a ton!
