If he can stay healthy he should do pretty good as the featured back.
And don`t count out Bradshaw - he is no Foster, but he is a tough guy that usually gets his yards. Again, IŽd have liked to get some other HBs, but when it was my turn to pick, the guys IŽd really want were already gone. That`s what you get when you take a WR (Megatron) and a QB (Newton) with your first two picks.
I can relate to that, I took Drew Brees as my first, and although it's nice to get a top 5 QB you really start to feel it once you try to pick a RB. That's why I joined some random ESPN pick-up league and drafted RBs and WRs first, and picked up a QB and everything else pretty late. I'll see how that team does compared to my first league. I'd say Megatron could be worth it though. I had him last season and he was a life saver while Arian Foster was out.
