Tate is no slouch. Foster needs to scale back and try vegan every other day and normal every other day. Give us your absolute best even if it means shelving a personal agenda.
Foster averages 3.7 ypc on 103 carries.
Tate averages 3.9 ypc on 30 carries,.
In short yardage situation (3rd or 4th and 2 or less and goal line situation), Foster was used 19 times, Tate 4.
We know that in these situations, quite often, it's more difficult to gain much yardage since the defense stacks the line.
