Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Foster is always a risk because of his injury history but he finished as a Top 5 fantasy back in 2014, despite playing just 13 games. No one doubts Foster's talent, it's just the question of pulling the trigger on a player who will be 29 when the season starts and has missed at least three games in three of the last four years. Foster averaged a touchdown per game last season and put up at least 96 yards rushing nine times. Foster is still one of the most productive running backs in the NFL when he's on the field. Injuries are the only thing that slows him down.

Round 1, Pick 1
Positives Hard worker capable of playing through injuries. Offense is capable of a lot of scoring. PPR monster who will continue to get a lot of receptions. will be the main focus as RB again with Tate as a breather back only. Definitely a 3 down RB! Negatives Starting the season with a Hamstring pull. Houston is being very conservative with the recovery. Last year was his breakout year and some consider him a one hit wonder (I disagree). His total touches was approaching the magic 400 number that usually leads to a breakdown the following year. Draft Strategy Hammerhead shark 4 league PPR. I also considered Ray Rice & Chris Johnson. I am very concerned about the Ravens offensive line (center especially) and the hold out might get nasty with Johnson. So in my opinion Foster is the most likely to succeed.

Round 1, Pick 1
Positives Absolutely torched the league last season, finishing 90 points clear of the field. Plays on one of the most dangerous offenses in the league behind a crushing zone-blocking offensive line. Negatives Only one year of elite performance as a track record. Lost one of the best blocking fullbacks to free agency. Not as good of a football player as the primary alternative, Adrian Peterson. Draft Strategy This year it comes down to AF and AP for the first selection, with good arguments for either. I think Foster is the upside pick, and Peterson is the high floor guy.

Round 1, Pick 1
Draft Strategy I had moved Ray Rice to my #1 until Ricky Williams showed up in Baltimore, hopefully Fosters hammy doesn't linger and has similar numbers as last year. (Contributed by: jerexter)
