Texans | Arian Foster, Ben Tate to share carries

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said RBs Arian Foster and Ben Tate will share carries Week 1 because the team wants to keep Foster fresh during the game. "We're going to rotate," Kubiak said. "First off, I think Arian's condition is excellent. His practice this week has been just excellent. He's a worker - that's why he plays well - and I've been impressed by how he's held up. But I think it's early in the season; I don't know how warm it's going to be up there. But I think we're smart to play them both and obviously we'll see how Arian holds up from that standpoint. But I don't think we're looking at the majority load that we maybe look at when he's rolling."

Fantasy Tip: Foster probably should be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back this week and Tate should be a flex option against San Diego.
