    I've been offered Jared Cook & Ben Tate for Jerimichael Finley & Joique Bell. Good trade? I have Reggie Bush so not sure if I want to give up Bell. If Foster goes down Tate would be good to have though.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    well Finley isn't worth crap, and Bell had a huge game.....

    I'd stick with Finley and Bell because I trust Bush to get injured more than I do Foster.

    Hmmm... tempting.

    Cook likely won't have another game like that, but he clearly will be the Rams #1 target going forward. Whereas Finley is the 3rd or 4th target. I basically look at Finley and Cook as the exact same player... all the talent in the world to be the best TE in the league, but not consistent enough. Can't trust them.

    Tate is a better option than Bell in most games, but Bell has the opportunity to vulture those goal line TDs. I like Tate's chances of being the #1 guy within the next few weeks after Foster tears his ACL though.

    Crazy how LeShoure goes from starting last year and putting up decent numbers to now being the 3rd RB on the depth chart.

    I might just take that trade... and I almost never accept trades.

    Do it. Cook > Finley.

    Also, you're losing your handcuff for another handcuff who is just as likely to get hurt. Foster is still having back issues right?

    I think I'd do that trade. Forget the TE part of the equation. Neither one of them are named Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski so they're both going to have their good weeks and bad.

    But Tate clearly outshined Foster in week 1. Wouldn't be surprised one bit if he's named the starter at some point this season. And if that happens, you've got yourself a top 5 back.
