Who would you take number one overall?

My league is non-PPR, but you can discuss either or for other readers of the board.

Foster, but make sure you get Tate! Foster more of a sure thing for TD's in the redone as Houston runs the ball quite a bit in the red zone. Cameron has a tendency to get cute w/ the playcalling in the redone at times, too smart for his own good.

Foster non-PPR
Rice gets the slight edge PPR

Can't go wrong with either IMO

I like rice the best, less room for error.

I like Foster, but I think Rice is the better option in PPR leagues. Also Foster has had a lot of miles the last couple years. Better get Tate if you go Foster.

I would probably end up flipping a coin. Pros and cons to each one but you can't go wrong with either.

That is why I would go Rice.

What does less room for error mean?

Anyway, last year, these two were just about dead even in PPR ppg.

I'd take Foster, but it's a coin flip.

Just curious why you think that.

Foster is a fantastic receiver.

less room for error means, they are coin flip right so look at what can prevent them from producing. The one thing that seperates the 2 of them is tate. Rice doesnt have a tate on his team. So I take rice. That doesnt mean I think tate will take from foster, but why not eliminate the possibility for sure and take rice.

but are you getting the upside of Tate if Foster goes down for a few games with whoever you would replace Rice with if he was to miss time?

Yep, both are great pass catchers, but Rice will probably catch 10-15 more balls. It's a very slight edge IMO and you can't go wrong either way

I don't consider Tate a problem either like some suggest. The volume Houston uses its backs is great, and Tate allows Foster to stay refreshed throughout the game.

i was asking about upside, not upskirt :lol:

what i meant was, whoever you are drafting to take the RB bench spots, do they have the upside Tate can give you if your no.1 guy goes down.
