Ben Tate made it clear that he's not satisfied playing second-fiddle to Arian Foster. " I would be lying to you if I told you that I embraced the complement role to someone else," Tate told Ross Jones of FOXSports.com. "That's not why I wanted to be in the NFL. That's not my dream to complement someone else. That's not what my attitude or why I work out is to complement someone else."
Looks like the soap opera may be moving south from Dallas to Houston as both Foster and Tate are posturing for more carries, and both have a legitimate argument. Tate owners have a little less to worry about than Foster owners who spent a first round pick to acquire Foster as even in a timeshare, Tate will provide you with a much higher rate of return due to his draft day discount. ADP aside, there could be enough opportunities for both backs to provide RB2 numbers, so I would not panic too much if you are a Foster owner and if you are not, consider inquiring about him in a trade if the discount is right for your liking.
