I voted a few times, but I'm pretty sure he will get. No reason for anyone to beat him.

Fantasy football players will make sure Foster gets in. Dude had double digit points in every game except for two (and most were 20 points plus). Amazing for an RB.

And no reason anyone should have to vote for him for him to win. These awards are about popularity not merit, because if it was based on merit they would just hand it to Foster.

Foster had an amazing year, but to dismiss Jamaal Charles as unworthy is a bit rich.

Close to 1500 yards at 6.4 yards a pop is incredible. Second best average ever is worth consideration for an award.

That's what he was DRAFTED to do. UDFAs don't just pop on to the scene and lead the league in rushing in their second year.

Sorry. Didn't realise it was a value for draft position award. Lets give it to Foster then.

I thought it was an award for the best RB.

I thought it was an award for the best RB. It is...that's why it should go to Foster.

1616 Yds vs. 1457
16 TDs vs. 5

It is. The info I stated is what puts it over the top for me when I vote. Let's remember he also led in all purpose yards too.

I'm not saying Foster does not deserve the award.

I was just pointing out that there is legitimate grounds for considering other people as worthy for the award in response to comments such as...

1616 Yds vs. 1457
16 TDs vs. 5

And this is without adding in the receiving yards and TDs that Foster has over any other RB in the NFL.

I guess it doesn't count since it's "ground player", but this is what made Foster's season even more impressive to me.

66 receptions (2nd in the league)
604 yards (1st in the league)

As predicted...
Jamaal Charles is FedEx Ground Player of the Year (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/02/02/jamaal-charles-aaron-rodgers-win-fedex-awards/)

Tell you what, Arian Foster is our guy, but Jamaal Charles gives CJ and AP a serious run for their money as best RB in the league. No shame in him winning that award.
