Foster. Especially in PPR. Ravens seem to be passing a bit more this year. Texans run more than just about anybody in the league. Foster is just as good (or better) in receiving yards too. I wouldn't overthink it. But it's hard to go wrong with Foster, Rice, Brady or Rodgers.

I hope MJD works out for you. I'll be avoiding him unless he makes it to round 3.

Cam- I think his numbers will be down a little from last season but still very good.
Austin- Hopefully he can stay healthy and put up his 09', 10' type numbers.
Brown- Expect him to have a great year.
Wayne- Almost had 1000 yards with Painter throwing to him. Should put up good numbers with Luck.
MJD- Even with the whole sitting out thing, I think he's definitely a good pick.
Rice- Not much needs to be said.
Gates- Should be getting a lot of looks from Rivers with the injuries they have.

Looks pretty good to me.

Glad I took a chance on MJD. I bet he'll be my starter by week 2.
