Would you drop Starks, D Thomas or Battle for him?  

 It seems to me that Tate has higher upside than any of them.  He can produce 6-8 a game and IF Foster goes down he is a top 10 back.  I don't think I can say that for any of the others.  Am I wrong?

I would grab Tate. He would be a top 10 if Foster goes down. At the moment they are close in yards on the season. I have him on my team and it paid off early in the season. I did not have in my lineup last week, but with DMC out again I plan on starting him as my RB2 with Ray Rice. As far as who to drop, I would say Thomas based on his injury issues.

Pick up Tate and drop either Thomas or Starks.  Starks is consistent and will get you 8 points per week, but has a very low upside.  Thomas may have the higher upside.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D
