Because if your plan is to run the ball 35-40 carries/game (which is great), you've got to spread the touches around.
I don't disagree with Kubiak benching Tate after that fumble. He's sending a message that turnovers will not be tolerated.
Today I expect both Tate and Foster to have a monster game against the Titan's weak run defense, so much so that I'm starting Tate as a flex option in my fantasy league. I think the Texans are going to do to the Titans what they did against the Jaguars...drain clock on offense through the run game. I don't think there will be any long bombs from Schaub to Johnson this week.
