CJ or Arian Foster? Who should I keep?? WHIR

Postby Foolio » Fri Jul 22, 2011 11:21 pm

I have to decide tomorrow if I'm gonna keep CJ or Foster.. Foster won my $$$ last year and he's great, but I've had CJ since his rookie year and love him too.. Who should be my "Franchise"?

RB scoring is 1pt per 20yds rushing/receiving, 6pts per TD, 1pt per 50+yd TD, -2 per FMBL

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!

Johnson is the safer pick, but I think Foster will put up better numbers baring injury.

Both are talented, but I'll take Foster... there's a lot more offensive talent around him to keep defenses honest. I think CJ has a similarly high ceiling, but with a possible rookie starting QB, he's more apt to throw up some clunker games.

Are we talking Calvin or Chris? I'm guessing Chris. Either way Foster is the guy I would keep.

Tough call indeed, but this year I am keeping Foster over CJ where I own them both because of the more stable, explosive offense in Houston and the fact that I think a healthy Foster outperforms Johnson this year even if he falls a bit short of his 2010 numbers ;-D

If it were me, I would go with Foster in a heartbeat. Johnson killed me last year in one league and Foster took me to the championship. Chances are Johnson won't be as inconsistant, if not as lackluster as last year. Foster also has a much stronger supporting cast around him. That in itself gives Foster an edge over Johnson

I would keep Foster. With Schaub and Andre teams cant stack the box against houston. I think Chris Johnson is going to a have rough time with a rookie QB under center.

I am going with Foster here as well.

Less wear, better offense and no contract holdout issue looming overhead.

Wow I am surprissed at how many would keep foster over CJ. I would hate to have to make that choice though. I think I would still go with CJ just because I would feel safer in the long run. Hard to pass on Foster though, because if he stays healthy his numbers could be huge
