Fantasy Football 2011: Arian Foster, Adrian Peterson Top Yahoo! Rankings

With the return of the NFL season comes the return of fantasy football, and Yahoo! Sports has Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson listed as the first and second best players.

Somewhat surprisingly, Yahoo! doesn't have any New England Patriots in its Top 25. Tom Brady is the top ranked Patriot on Yahoo's list with a projected ranking of 30th overall. Wes Welker is the second Patriot on the list and is ranked 59th overall. BenJarvus Green-Ellis is ranked 61st and Chad Ochocinco is ranked 117th.

Here's a look at the Top 25 players based on Yahoo's projected rankings.
