His offensive line is still quite inferior to the Foster's so it does apply. It's not a complete fact that Foster is a top 5 RB because he isn't and I don't even believe he is. I would take Forte over Foster quite easily. They're like the same back really except Forte is better than everything. I'm not sure what advantages Foster has over Forte besides being in a better situation.
