Texans | Arian Foster inactive

Sun, 01 Jan 2012 08:54:34 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster is inactive in Week 17 versus the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Ben Tate may not play extensively given that he's an explosive alternative to Foster, either, but he's easily the best "surprise" fantasy bet of the day so far. Folks who have an opportunity to use him should plug him as an RB2 type capable of putting up big numbers against Tennessee. Derrick Ward has performed well in extremely limited duty and could easily factor in here, also, making him a desperation play at the flex position.
