2016 Outlook
After being an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2009, Foster has emerged as not only the top rated fantasy running back in 2012 but also as a contender for the title of the leagueís top player at his position. Although a hamstring injury caused him to miss two and a half games and he sat out Week 17, Foster still managed to finish the season as the 4th ranked running back in total fantasy points and 1st on a per game basis. If you want consistency, Foster also provides that, having reached double-digit fantasy points in 27 of his last 31 games. Are there concerns? Sure. The team lost two starters along the offensive line (Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel), Foster signed a lucrative long term contract and backup Ben Tate proved he was worthy of touches as he came within 58 yards of topping 1,000 rushing yards. While Tate is good, Foster is clearly the Texans go to player on offense and it is worth noting that Tate was barely used in the teamís two playoff games last season and averaged less than ten touches per game when Foster was healthy. Itís a no-brainer, folks. If you have the 1st selection in your fantasy draft, Foster is your pick.
News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Arian Foster hungry to regain 2012 form     -- Mon Jun 20 3:50 pm --

At least three teams reportedly have interest
Arian Foster expects to be healthy for training camp and is "hungry" to regain his 2012 form, according to a source. At least three teams have recently inquired about Foster, who tore his Achilles in late October. The Texans released the tailback in March. But Foster, 29, is inching closer to a return and is evaluating potential fits, including teams with dual-threat running back capabilities. Foster visited the Miami Dolphins this offseason but has otherwise kept a low profile. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Foster is coming up on eight months since suffering his most recent injury. Considering his injury history, track record for slow healing, age (turns 30 in August) and the usual recovery time for Achilles' injuries, it is highly unlikely the ex-Texan will ever find his "form" again, much less in 2016. No matter where he ends up, he should be considered nothing more than a very high-risk RB3 - and even that might be a stretch.
Injury Foster: "I probably need another month"     -- Thu May 26 7:00 am --

Recovering from Achilles injury
Arian Foster is at a crossroads in his career. Arian says he is at peace as he works his way back from the Achilles tear that cut his last season with the Texans 12 games short. "I probably need another month to get where I am, the person everyone is use to seeing," Arian said. "I can definitely play but I need another month to be where I want to be and be at that pro-bowl lever I can be at." (ABC 13)

FF Today's Take: Foster has received interest from a couple teams during free agency including Miami but will wait to sign until he's closer to 100 percent healthy. Foster struggled rushing the ball in his four games last season (2.6 ypc) but made his fantasy success in the receiving department with 227 yds and 2 TDs.
