I am in the 2nd year of a keeper league I am in and I keep going in a trio thought process of cycling through these three on who to keep. Before everyone is hollering RB first it is not every day you have a WR like AJ Green on your squad. The dude produces just about every game and Andy Dalton always finds ways to get him the ball. I think he is brinking the top 5 WR chart this year behind Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall, and Dez Bryant by years end. Fantasy has kind of been changing over the years I noticed and to me it is imparitive to have a dominate WR on your squad.
As for Arian Foster I know how much he has carried Fantasy owners in their leagues (provided much success for me as a TD machine) but however I have a feeling his production is going to start declining. I wonder if Houston will try and take care of Arian more due to his heart condition issues he has suffered lately and that Justin Forsett and Ben Tate could see more playing time? I think behind AP that Foster is the second best back in the NFL (especially when it comes to production) but I wonder how he will be used this year and if Houston will try and stop riding his coat tail most of the year.
I recieved Doug Martin right before the Raider matchup last year when he scored me like 72 points in one game. I put Matthew Stafford on the trading block and low and behold someone needed a QB proposed Doug Martin to me. I accepted it in a heart beat. Right after the trade went through Doug scored me a ton of points for the rest of the season and I think he will be the next big back to have on your Fantasy squad after having a year under his belt. I can see Greg wanting to run the ball more this year with Martin to protect Freeman's inconcistancy at QB. I am in more of a battle of going back and forth between AJ Green and Doug Martin than adding Foster in the mix. I kind of wonder if I decide to keep Green I should be able to scoop Martin back up early?
I also had Trent Richardson in that league but he is not a candidate of course.

Martin is getting carl nicks back this year and martin can win games by himself. Ridiculous upside.
Foster is great too. Very dependable with breakout potential. I worry about the past workload and injury history just enough to penalize a point or two.
Green is awesome as well. He is a high volume dependable WR1. Not sold on Dalton.
If you notice today Tampa signed Peyton Hillis. That could come in to play if they want Hillis to get goal line touches. Who knows what Tampa has in store. I think I am going to keep AJ Green and gamble by hoping Martin will be there early in the draft. I lost the championship game so I will have the 11th pick. I think he should be there between 11 and 13.
