In an attempt to get some fantasy football talk going during the offseason, I'm going to post a debate question, trivia or something else every couple of days, just to keep the message board fresh. The Super Bowl has only been over for a few weeks, but I'm already looking forward to at least the draft for a football fix.

Ok, first question. In 2008, we saw a ton of solid fantasy rookie running backs. In my mind, Chris Johnson and Matt Forte were the top two. When it comes time to draft one of these two in 2009, who do you pick? Or is there another rookie RB that you like better.

My answer: While I think Johnson is way more explosive and capable of huge games, I would choose Forte b/c he doesn't share carries and he has better receiving stats that Johnson.
