Fantasy football: Who's No. 1?

Who's the No. 1 pick in fantasy football drafts?
According to, Houston running back Arian Foster is the No. 1 overall pick. If this guy is healthy he can surely help you at back and at receiver with his ability to catch the ball. But is he healthy? If you go by his last preseason game he looked pretty good and ready to go.
Other guys being picked No. 1 in drafts around the country - all backs - are Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, Kansas City's Jamaal Charles, Tennessee's Chris Johnson and Baltimore's Ray Rice.
Guys picked among the top three spots are Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy and Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick who just signed a $100 million contract.
So who do you pick if you have the No. 1 draft position?
I think Adrian Peterson is the safest guy to take at No. 1. He's healthy and has a quarterback who can make defenses polkay honest.
The wildcard here could be Vick. Most fantasy sports sites have him projected with the most fantasy points for the season with anywhere from 323 to 347.
I like Vick a lot, but if you're drafting the top four spots you need to go with a solid running back.
