This is probably the easiest thing to write in any sort of fantasy football column, whether you call yourself an “expert” or you’re like me and you readily admit that this is all guessing and there’s hardly any science to it.
Arian Foster – If you have the No. 1 pick (I did) then you can’t go wrong by picking Foster (like I did), even if you’re worried that him being a vegan somehow hurts his value (it doesn’t). He should be good for 100 yards and 1-3 TD per week, which is miraculous in this day and age.
Ray Rice – Thanks to Joe Flacco’s “elite” ability to dump the ball off a ton, Rice is a receiving beast, which translates well for PPR. Luckily, he’s also an all-around beast, too, so he produces a ton of points. I argued with one friend who said people who would take Rice No. 1 are crazy. I don’t think it’s too far-fetched.
LeSean McCoy – And I’d argue McCoy could go No. 1, too. I don’t think there’s too much of a difference between the 3 of these guys. I only think it’s a reach to think that McCoy will score 20 TD again, but who the hell knows with that offense?
