S. Smith NYG or A. Foster?

I'm in a deep (2RB 3WR + Flex) 14 team PPR league where we are permitted to keep 2 players at the expense of a draft pick two rounds higher than they were last picked.

My first keeper, Mendenhall for a 7th, is a no brainer.

I thought Steve Smith NYG for a 10th rounder (127th) was as well, but Arian Foster for an 18th rounder (239th) is suddenly looking very appealing...

So who should it be, Smith for a 10th or Foster for an 18th? Any opinions are appreciated, I have to make my decision by high noon tomorrow and I'm agonizing!!!

Thanks in advance

Id keep Arian because hes a #1 rb with minimal competition for carries and Steve smith has too much talent around him (nicks) to get 100+ catches ever again.

Based on League structure, Smith by a landslide.

Since it's a full PPR and you have to start 3 WR, it's definately Smith. Slaton could easily take a lot of Foster's catches and you never know when Kubiak is going bench a RB for fumbling.
