Fantasy Outlook
After totaling a league high 1,114 touches from 2010 to 2012 seasons, Foster suffered through an injury marred 2013 season in Houston. A back injury caused him to miss eight games and he barely played in two others, finishing the season with 542 rushing yards, 183 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. While Foster's fantasy rep took a pounding, a closer look reveals that he averaged 13.9 PPG in the six games that he was healthy, hitting double digit fantasy points four times. That's RB1 status, folks, provided he can stay healthy. Word out of Houston is that Foster will open training camp with a clean bill of health. The Texans are expected to lean heavily on the run with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, so Foster should see plenty of touches in 2014. A bounce back season appears to be in order for Foster, one of the league's most talented running backs when healthy. We like him as a mid to lower RB1 and advise his owners to grab Andre Brown with a late round pick.
Texans RB Foster to have MRI on groin injury
Nov 3 6:12 am
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will undergo an MRI on his groin injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Texans are on bye in Week 10, so that may give Foster time to recover. (ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: If Foster is to miss time, rookie Alfred Blue will be the primary running back. He can be viewed as a RB2 pending the matchup. Veteran Jonathan Grimes is another option behind Blue.
