2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
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 league’s 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 team’s two playoff games last season and averaged less than ten touches per game when Foster was healthy. It’s 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 expected to start     -- Mon Aug 1 11:45 pm --

HC: "He is going to be rolling with the ones"
Miami RB Arian Foster also got some first team work and “he is going to be working with the ones the whole training camp,” HC Gase said. “His resume speaks for itself. I don’t think there’s any question why we brought him in here. He’s playing this year. Whether he’s the guy that will be the first snap of the game, time will tell. He is going to be rolling with the ones.” (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Jay Ajayi suffered a bone bruise on his left knee over the weekend, but Gase has apparently decided to hitch his wagon to the oft-injured Foster, who is more than nine full months removed from tearing his Achilles. Most owners are probably going to flock to Foster in hopes he can overcome the odds, but this news presents a pretty good buy-low window to acquire/draft Ajayi in the likely event the ex-Texan cannot make it through the season.
Arian Foster expected to sign with Miami     -- Mon Jul 18 4:14 pm --

One-year deal

FF Today's Take: Foster worked out for the Dolphins on Monday and reportedly had a visit with the Lions set up later in the week. The Dolphins apparently liked enough of what they saw from the veteran who will turn 30 in August and is coming off a serious Achilles injury. Jay Ajayi's fantasy value and ADP will take a hit but given Foster's injury, Ajayi is a worthwhile investment in the middle rounds.
Foster to workout for Dolphins and Lions     -- Sun Jul 17 7:20 pm --

Achilles injury

FF Today's Take: Foster has been rehabbing an Achilles injury suffered in Week 8 (late October) last season. He's been linked previously this off-season with the Dolphins but wanted to wait until his foot improved before working out. Achilles injuries typically have a lengthy timetable so even if he does sign with a team, its difficult to predict how effective he'll be in 2016.
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.
