Number 1: AP or Foster

Postby windchill » Mon Aug 22, 2011 10:32 pm

I have the number 1 pick tomorrow night and struggling a bit on who to take with it. Do I go with AP or Foster (one who I think is better and the good ol' "homer pick")

So do I go Peterson or Foster?

With the number one pick you go with high upside and security, his name is AP. That's what I did and I'm not worried

I have AD slotted as my #2 right now with Ray Rice moving into #1. The o-line for AD concerns me.

AP would be my choice. He's been productive every year, even on some shaky offenses. McNabb is way better than Tjax or J Webb, yet AP produced with those guys at QB. He's also just the way better athlete and football player. It's also been shown time and time again that Rbs that have huge years, with a large number of touches, usually drop off significantly the next year. The only guys that haven't had huge dropoffs are HoFers like Tomlinson and E Smith. Foster isn't in the same league as those guys.

I'd go with AP. Foster was great last year but it's only one year, while AP has been a consistent producer for quite some time. He's only 26, so while he's got some mileage, he's not over the hill yet.

Foster definitely. He has the best run blocking line in the league, a top QB, and the best WR in the game on his team. I don't see how you can go wrong.

AP will likely be a stud again, but his team sucks and his ceiling isn't as high. He's behind probably the worst O-line in football.

1. AP
2. Foster

With the number one pick IMO you want to go with the safest pick that is going to guarantee you a top 5 RB and that is going to be AP. Rice was barely a top 10 last year so Im a little confused as to why he is leap frogging AP and Foster on some people's draft boards but thats their opinion. I do like Rice but I would go AP, Foster, Charles, Rice - assuming no CJ2K
