That being said, out of the top RB's, he's in the best position to continue his success.

And crzy, I believe it was you was wrong about him last year, so I'd take your advice with a grain of salt.

Shrug

Just saying. You were advocating another poster trade him for CJ Spiller before the season. I hope that poster didn't do that.

Michael Vick has to be the #1 pick.

He's definetily worth the top spot, but I'd have to have Philly's backup because his injury chances are 10x greater than any other qb.

Usually I'm not a fan of taking qb's early, but this year might be the exception. Last year I waited to round 5 in a 2 QB league and ended up with Big Ben, Stafford, Freeman, and Vick as my guys. I can tell you I won't get that lucky this year if I wait. With the lockout, late FA, and all the rookie QB's this year I think you have to get your qb early.

He has the most potential of all the running backs and it's not even close. Houston's offense is a sure thing. Tennessee, Minnesota could be spending half the year with a rookie qb. Last year Foster put up 2,200 yards and 20 touchdowns. As long as he's healthy that 15- 20 TD total is pretty much a lock. If he puts up 1,600 yards from scrimmage that's top 3 production guaranteed.

He really is the only back I feel comfortable with at the top spot if he's not there I'm taking Michael Vick.

I like the confidence, but I'd rather not use the #1 pick on a guy who has only done it for one year.

That's a beast team.
yea i get to Keep Foster and AP also.. have Vick but i only get 2 keepers... In my other league i got AP and Gore. So hopefully that pans out. Gotta love keeper leagues
Update to the conversation.

Foster lost one of the best fullbacks in the league in Leach to Baltimore. Tennessee and Minnesota got veteran quarterbacks.

Not so sure if Foster is my guy at number 1 anymore. Ray Rice has moved up to #4 in my opinion. Doesn't have to share the load with McClain and McGahee, and added a fullback of Leach's caliber.
