Dolphins | Arian Foster to PUP

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 05:20:13 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Foster carries about as much name value as he does risk in fantasy due to advancing age and coming off two catastrophic injuries. He's in the mix as a low-end RB3 for now as he competes with Jay Ajayi.

Dolphins | Miami didn't want to lose Arian Foster

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 19:02:40 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') impressed the team in a workout Monday, July 18, and one source said he "looked good." The team wanted to move quickly to sign him before he had a chance to board a flight and work out for the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is expected to compete with incumbent Jay Ajayi for the starting job, and he has declared himself 100 percent healthy after suffering a torn Achilles' tendon last October playing against the Dolphins. Foster will be worth scooping up in the neighborhood of Round 5 or so right now, but with a strong training camp and preseason, he could move up quickly. Still, with his injury history, be sure to draft plenty of draft at the position.

Dolphins | Arian Foster plays well versus division

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:03:38 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster has fared well against the AFC East in his career. In 10 games, Foster has totaled 12 touchdowns and averaged 105 total yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: Foster will obviously have six games against the AFC East this year, as division opponents play each other twice per season. His numbers against the division are encouraging, but he still has an extensive injury history to deal with. Don't view him as more than an RB4 in Miami.

Dolphins | Arian Foster declares his health

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 19:00:04 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') said Monday, July 18, that he is fully healthy after suffering a ruptured Achilles' tendon last season. He said he still feels like a Pro Bowl-caliber player and intends to show that. "I don't have any expectations. Just coming here to compete and help the squad out however I can," Foster said.

Fantasy Tip: For now, Foster is not expected to start, as incumbent Jay Ajayi remains atop the depth chart. However, that race is certainly not settled and will be hashed out in training camp and the preseason. Foster certainly has the history, but he also has a lot of wear on the tires and a long history of injuries. Even if he is able to leapfrog Ajayi, Foster's workload will likely be curtailed to help keep him healthy.

Dolphins | Arian Foster contract details

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 14:08:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster's one-year deal is worth $1.5 million. It comes with incentives that could maximize the deal at $3.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has a lot of miles on his football odometer, and he has suffered through more than his fair share of injuries. It's better to draft him as a low-end RB3 to high-end RB4 with so much risk involved.

Dolphins | Arian Foster joins Miami

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:32:18 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins Monday, July 18, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Foster was easily the best available free-agent running back left on the market. The wear and tear he's dealt with, and the fact that he'll be 30 years old in August, kept teams away. Foster has only played three full seasons in his seven-year career. He and Jay Ajayi will likely battle for starting duties, and the move does hurt Ajayi's value a bit. Ajayi should now be an RB3 consideration, while Foster is more in low-end RB3 to high-end RB4 range. Rookie Kenyan Drake now only has real value in dynasty formats.

Dolphins | Miami interested in signing Arian Foster

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 20:12:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is expected to work out for the Miami Dolphins Monday, July 18, and Miami will seriously consider signing Foster if his workout goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Foster would likely slide into the backup role behind Jay Ajayi if he does end up in Miami, but injuries and age raise plenty of red flags. Wait until the later rounds to take a chance on Foster.

Lions | Arian Foster to work out for Detroit

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 18:46:22 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is scheduled to work out for the Detroit Lions later this week, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is going to see his draft stock rise when he signs with a team, but temper expectations. He has potential as a late-round flier, but it remains to be seen how much he has left in the tank.

Dolphins | Arian Foster working out for Miami

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 18:19:49 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is scheduled to work out for the Miami Dolphins Monday, July 18, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Foster would add experience to Miami's young backfield, and he would steal at least some carries from Jay Ajayi. However, Foster's role and value remain tough to predict until he signs with a team. He is a late-round flier in the meantime.

NFL | Arian Foster expects to be ready

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 14:15:21 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) anticipates being healthy enough to participate in training camp, according to a source. Foster is eager to regain his 2012 form, but he has not been signed yet despite at least three teams having had interest in him.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is easily the most accomplished free-agent running back left on the market, but his fantasy value remains at zero as long as he remains a free agent.
