    Wow. How insightful. That is pretty useless information given who we have, their time in the league, and chances to start.

    Haha. I yell at the 9ers all the time cause Dixon gets goal line touches away from Frank Gore.

    I missed on Foster and he's kicked my ass twice in 2 different leagues. I just picked up Ward in both of them.

    I still do not see Kubiak using Slaton in the best role for him ala Reggie Bush or Chris Johnson. I see a Foster, Ward, Tate roster with Slaton possibly traded. I am hopeful Trindon Holiday will be our returner.

    Gary,

    Please do what you gotta do and the week I play the Foster owner, it's probably a good idea to just give him about three or four carries and pass the rest of the time...preferrably TD's to Jacoby Jones.

    Sincerely,
    Guy who doesn't have Foster in his money league

    Maybe this also means more motivation for Foster?

    During that Raider game I know a lot of F.F. Foster owners were ticked off at Kubiak for benching Foster for mostly the first half....but then bam comes out with fresh legs and gets a great TD run. Maybe this will keep Foster fresh and keep that chip on his shoulder that he needs to run great and make the best of each run.

    I hope Holliday can take slot reps away from DA next year, or that they draft a dependable slot guy.

    When Tate returns we'll have both quality and depth that we've never had before and be in a really good situation. I hope that Slaton is smart enough to read the writing on the wall and realize that he might not be here much longer. Maybe we can showcase Slaton a little toward the end of the season and pump up his trade value.

    I'm sure you meant showcase Slaton when we're resting our starters for the final two games right?

    Showcasing Slaton down the stretch isn't a sound decision at this juncture in our attempt at improving the history of winning. He's about due for several fumbles.

    I think the runnings backs in 2011 will be Foster, Tate, and Ward if there is any football at all of course.

    I'm in the process of trading Arian Foster for Andre Johnson. I've been expecting Foster's fantasy production to decline for two reasons: 1) Teams will start figuring out how to block his cutback lanes like the Giants did, severely reducing his number of big plays. 2) Derrick Ward is really, really good, and he's about to take half the carries.

    I wouldn't do it. Foster gives you more guaranteed points than Johnson would. I'm lucky enough to have both on my money league (along with Reggie Wayne, Rivers, Santana Moss, LeSean McCoy, Bironas, and Hines Ward). I really drafted well this year.

    I would keep Foster. He's never given me anything less than 10 points all season. Even last week when he only had 74 yards, he still had like another 30 something yards in receiving. He's also shown to give multiple TDs in one game.
