TThis is a 12 team PPR (start 2 flex) and I already have Ben Tate, which is why he either wants tate from me or to trade me Foster, especially given the injury concern. I am on the fence since my upside play is to keep Tate and hope for a Foster injury, suggestions greatly appreciated. (roster below)

QB - Romo, Cutler

RB - McCoy, McFadden, Tate, Dwyer, R. Jennings

WR - Demaryius Thomas, R. Cobb, H. Nicks, M. Wallace, T. Austin, D. Avery

TE - Pettigrew, Cameron

K - Gostkowskii

D - Broncos, Ravens

I would keep Mccoy and potentially go big and get an upgrade to Tate if you can, HE NEEDS TATE BADLY now....You should be able to get a player that would atleast be a 1 or 2 round upgrade on the draft position for Tate with him...

I would keep Tate and McCoy...you have two RB's and he has none right now. He has no leverge and beyond McCoy McFadden scares me as someone who can never stay healthy and your other two RB's leave a lot to be desired unless LeVeon Bell's injury on Monday Night moves Dwyer up the depth chart.

You need a more reliable 3rd RB. What would he give you for Tate and Tavon Austin? Some people are still very enamored with Austin despite the fact he isn't likely to live up to expectations IMO.

Thanks for the responses and sorry for the delay. He doesn't have much in the way of RB's, however, he does have Witten & TGonz and TE's get 1 pt per 7 yds instead of 10 and 1.3 PPR. Would offering Tate?Pettigrew for Witten make sense? Granted, Tate is looking like a decent hold now.

I would not make any trade that weakens your RB's any further.

IMO I think the only hope Houston has of keeping Foster on the field is a 50/50 split with Tate. With Tate getting the goalline carries. But I still don't think Foster makes it through the season.

So trading a high potential RB and a starting TE for another TE(unless maybe his name is Graham) should not be an option.

Macfadden is a ? Law of averages says Mac will have at leaast one season before he retires without getting injured. This could be the one!

You're going through after draft buyers remorse!

You're Loaded at WR and can make a trade at anytime using them. But for now your team is healthy, and unless a sure fire RB came your way, I would wait!

I'm also not sold on Witten this year with the increase in targets and TD's to Dez
