Hey guys, I've run into a bench problem in fantasy and I need to cut one of Ben Tate or Steven Jackson.

I'm leaning towards cutting Jackson since I like Ben Tate's potential if Foster goes down, but I don't want to hold a roster spot for potential. Can you guys offer any more insight into Tate's role or is he just a 20% of the carries type guy/insurance if Foster goes down.

Right now Tate is in a time share getting about 20-40% of the carries depending on the game. He is unlikely to get more carries than that unless Foster gets hurt. Foster is also the better red zone back but neither is being used as a goal line back. So between Tate and Jackson, you cut Ben Tate.

I dont know guys, Arians already at 79 carries through 3 games, we can't keep him at the pace an hope to have him in top form for the playoffs, like he was last year. I think we start giving Tate more carries as long has he holds on to the ball, but between Jackson and Tate id keep Jackson.

Tate will be used more because we've run Arian more than we wanted.
He is also still likely better than anyone you could get.
If Arian get's injured he is a top 10-15 back.

With that said Jackson when healthy is a workhorse 10-15 back.

You should probably have better options to drop than them.

QB Brees, Roethlisberger
RB Doug Martin, Steven Jackson, Ben Tate, Andre Brown, Mikell Leshoure, CJ Spiller, Fred Jackson
WR Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon, Brandon Marshall, Stevie Johnson
TE Gronkowski
K Gould

10 team 0.5ppr league

I dropped my defense last week (Lions) to pick up Leshoure on waivers so I could delay this decision or make a trade.

Wasn't able to and I need a defense for tomorrow.. this is my situation

I'd drop Brown or Fred Jackson before I dropped Tate or Steven Jackson. That's just me, however.
