General Message Board
I'm in a league with doofuses and have a conundrum. Generally I would own Ben Tate if he was a free agent, but this league makes it more difficult. The only options I have of getting Tate from free agents are to drop Michael Bush, Stevan Ridley, or Benjarvus Green-Ellis. Seriously every other person on my team is on the can't cut list, or alternatively, is my only kicker or only defense. I have Bush right now because I believe he will get more points than Tate by the end of the year. I heard Chicago wants to try to have two 1000 yard rushers, and Bush will see goalline action.
Is the possibibility of a homerun with Tate, should Foster be sidelined for a long time, worth dropping one of these other guys, and if so, whom?
I'd drop Ridley for Tate, simply because you just never know how New England RBs are going to be used / not used / ignored / whatever. They're almost as bad as Washington RBs. And you're almost always going to know when you can and can't use Tate.
Can you help me with my question? (I love how yahoo won't let you post a link to their own forums - just look for "Overloaded at QB - NEED HELP PLEASE")
Consider this too...assuming Houston wraps up their division early (likely), they limit Fosters use the last couple of games, Tate becomes a stud RB at fantasy playoff time. Who knows? I dont really like Ridley myself (very little consistency with NE RB's) but I don't think I'd drop him for Tate. Who are your worst few WR's?
