Arian Foster

Postby doomedn00b » Thu Oct 13, 2011 11:58 am

I know as a general rule, "Start your studs." But I'm not sure that, even if Torain starts and has a good game, that it would be worth benching Foster. WHIP.

Baltimore is tough match up for Foster, but I would definitely start him. Torain had one good game, but he has Hightower and Helu to compete with and Hightower will probably be getting some carries this week. With Foster, Tate and Ward are not getting any carries.

No way you ever bench Arian Foster when healthy, even if you can only start 2 and your other options are Peterson and McCoy, lol. JK, but here it isn't close. It has to be Arian.

Oops, after a closer look, your thread title is misleading. I would start Torain over Thomas for sure. Torain will get the bulk of the carries and there's no reason to think he won't have success. Thomas will be on an offense that will struggle with Matt Moore.

Help me?

If you bench Foster, the entire cafe will find you and beat you. Start Foster.

Yes.

Seriously though, start Mr. Namaste. Also, I would bench Thomas for Torain this week.

Good Luck!!

If you sit Foster you deserve to lose.
