Will Carroll: Hillis, Foster, Cutler headline stars from Week 12 Fast Forward

Where did you draft Arian Foster this year? How about Peyton Hillis? If you did ... well, hello Mrs. Foster, how was your holiday weekend? Foster's average draft position was 27th among running backs, likely a ninth-round pick in standard leagues. Hillis wasn't drafted in most leagues, despite the opportunity for carries heading into training camp. This happens every year, but this time, we're talking about elite-level players who will jump into fantasy consciousness for years to come. It's hard to imagine that Hillis won't be the basis of an improved Browns attack next season, and Foster looks to be the guy the Texans have been looking for since coming into the league. (Foster could be an interesting situation. He'll slide in the draft next year if Gary Kubiak isn't back. Kubiak's system is perfect for a one-cut-and-run guy like Foster.) The trick now is not just figuring out when a player is worth a fantasy pickup, but whether or not that great waiver find is a keeper for the future. That's harder. Consistency in RBs is hard to find even among the elite. Of course, that's what makes fantasy football so fun. Decisions like this in keeper leagues could make or break fantasy franchises.
