    Arian Foster for Adrian Peterson! Help!

    I currently have Arian Foster and am considering offering him for Adrian Peterson. Although Peterson's schedule gets tougher, I am worried about Houston going 13-1 and starting to limit Foster's carries come fantasy playoffs. Do you think that is a concern? Should I offer the trade? Thanks

    • Foster might get you more points in the next couple of weeks, but I think Houston might rest Foster the last couple weeks (he will probably play, but they wont give him the ball as much) so Peterson might be the better choice come FF Playoffs. Since you are in first place, I could live with that trade.

    • i wouldnt have problem with it..foster will prob have more tds..but peterson more yds..and will almost equal out in the end..im def saying houston will rap up homefield and rest foster last couple of wks they have good back up in tate..although hes been injured a lot this yr..good thinking with them resting foster..minnesota will prob be fighting for play off spot and will need peterson to get a lot of carries with ponder being inconsistent

    • I'd keep what u have. Foster is very consistent no matter the matchup. Peterson, ya, he's scored the most fantasy points this year for RB's, but that's only because of some HUGE games. Foster has had several, but he'll give u 15+ points (Non-ppr) per week. Whereas Peterson could give u 25 one week and 8 the next. I'd keep Foster. Maybe pay attention to the Houston games, if u notice less caries for Foster, then I'd try to trade him before anyone else notices:)

    • And just to clarify I am currently in 1st place and feel I would be able to live with Peterson's tougher schedule the next 3-4 weeks. Minnesota plays St. Louis and Houston in week 15 and 16.
