So what should I hope for with Foster?

Postby Those About To Rock » Sun Sep 18, 2011 7:29 pm

He's not panning out so much, didn't look good when he did play. Where should I try to value him in a trade?

I think you're selling low if you deal him at this point. He only didn't look great cause he's not 100% yet, but I certainly wouldn't go running around with your hair on fire and selling him for 80 cents on the dollar. I know it sucks to have your No. 1 pick sit in Week 1 and then get you next to nothing in the second wee, but I'd rather have 10-12 weeks of Foster than any combination you get in a trade unless you're getting AP, RIce or McCoy in return ...

I thought I read today that Foster reinjured his hammy yesterday. In fact, I read he took himself out of the game according to some blurb on ESPN. Tate is playing pretty well. Id grab him if you can and hold onto Foster.

Tate is taken. I was considering pawning Foster and R. Wayne for DJackson and LFitz. My RBs post trade would be:

Rice
AP

McGahee
Sproles
Thomas Jones.

It'd also gear me with some awesome receivers. I'm just afraid Foster comes back and splits 50/50 carries with Tate...what do you all think about his splitting time?

If you own him, Foster is "un-tradeable" at this point IMHO... you just can't get any value for him. He will be back, but you have to be patient in the interim.

If you don't own him, NOW is a great time to make an offer to an antsy owner.

Not possible. The guy who has him would rather have him on the bench than let me have him without way overpaying.

I was just offered B. Jacobs and J. Starks for him. If Starks was being used more....
