Jahvid Best for Arian Foster?

Postby zmspartan26 » Wed Sep 28, 2011 11:28 pm

This seems like a no-brainer, but I'm serious. I'm pretty thin at RB, with Ray Rice, Jahvid, Brandon Jacobs and Beanie Wells (out), and I was wondering if you guys think Arian will return to last year's form when he comes back or if he was a one-year wonder. I'm hesitant abut playing Jacobs in Foster's absence, but I have no other choice. This is not a trade I really need, as Jahvid has been consistent for me since last year, but I realize it could pay dividends if Arian puts up the kind of numbers he is expected to. Basically, I'm wondering if you guys see any risk in this. Thanks.

I would take that gamble to.

Best has not really done all that good at YPC. His points came from the Lions staying in it or being up.

I believe Arian wont hit last year numbers obviously. I do think he can be as good or better than Best from here out. That lingering Hamstring is a concern for me though.
