Then went against an average to solid washington defense that held him to 3.6 YPC, and the only reason he had a useful day was because of 1 50 yd run. Take that away and he had 2 catches for 19 yds, and not 3 catches for 69 yds. Lets see him put together an entire season before we crown him a top 4 RB.
As far as Rice goes, I would agree that he is a great buy low option. Should be able to light up Cleveland today, if he doesn't, I would question whether his minor ankle injury he suffered last week is still a problem. But I agree, as mentioned above, that if Rice has a mediocre game, his best buy window might be after next week when he faces Pitt, but I expect a breakout game for Rice against Cleveland today...at least I hope.
Foster is the back in an offense that scores a million points per game you can draft him like you draft somebody who plays for the yankees
Rice plays on a team who wants to play low scoring games, has a proven back behind him that they are willing to let score TD's
Or you can look at it in that Foster plays for a team that is a pass first team and they are not afraid to abandon the run if they get behind early, and Rice plays for a team that is a run-first team and they will establish the run all day if they have to and won't abandon it.
Except that's not how it's playing out in real life. Last week Houston had to throw their a$$es off to come back and win that game and Foster still scored anywhere from 12-14 fantasy points. This week they got beat down again and Foster still scored a dozen fantasy points on 20+ touches. I'm failing to see where the "pass first team" garbage is going to hurt him. His team has attempted 93 passes in the last 2 games, which is really a result of their game circumstances and not really their "pass first" mentality, but let's go with that. He still touched the ball over 20 times in those games and scored double digit fantasy points.
