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.

Dolphins | Miami not pursuing Arian Foster

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:25:37 -0700

The Miami Dolphins aren't pursuing free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans), who visited the team earlier this spring. The team will consider him if they have an injury or if their young running backs struggle. Foster is still working his way back from a torn Achilles' tendon suffered Oct. 25 with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has plenty left in the tank, but he has a propensity for injury which means even if he finds employment he is likely to be in a timeshare, at best. Fantasy owners will want to see where he lands before risking a late-round draft pick on him.

NFL | Arian Foster may wait to work out

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 05:33:34 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') may not work out for teams until late July. Foster likely would be able to pass a physical at this point but the extra time likely would improve his health.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is still recovering from his Achilles' tendon injury and probably wants to be close to 100% before signing with a team. He likely will be part of a committee once he signs with a team but has a chance to be a No. 3 running back in some fantasy leagues.

NFL | Arian Foster a month away from usual form

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:17:42 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') said he would need about a month to get to where he needs to be physically. "I probably need another month to get where I am, the person everyone is used to seeing," Foster said. "I can definitely play but I need another month to be where I want to be and be at that pro-bowl level I can be at."

Fantasy Tip: Foster turns 30 this season, and it's pretty far-fetched to imagine him carrying the load like he used to in the running and passing game. He'll land in a spot to utilize both in smaller samples, and he'll be an RB3 consideration in fantasy drafts.

Redskins | Washington not looking at Arian Foster

Tue, 24 May 2016 21:45:19 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') does not appear to be an option for the Washington Redskins at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should be able to find a job in the near future, but it appears that Washington will look for other options if they want add another running back. Foster probably will be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back for fantasy owners depending on where he plays.

Dolphins | Arian Foster still option for Miami

Tue, 24 May 2016 21:22:15 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is still receiving interest from the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is still recovering from his Achilles' tendon injury but may sign with a team in a near future. Foster likely would be part of a committee if he signed with the Dolphins but may receive most of the work in that committee. Foster could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back for owners this season depending on where he plays.

NFL | Arian Foster close to passing physical

Sat, 21 May 2016 19:32:11 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') expects to pass his physical in the next couple of weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen where the veteran back will land, but he is certainly worth picking up in the later rounds of drafts.

Patriots | Arian Foster doesn't visit Patriots

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:56:55 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) did not visit the New England Patriots during his recent trip to Boston.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots already have a pretty crowded backfield, so they may not be looking to add even more depth right now, even if it is Foster. If New England's backfield stays as is, Dion Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR leagues and LeGarrette Blount is an RB3 option in standard formats.

Patriots | Arian Foster an option for Patriots?

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:23:08 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) has received preliminary interest from the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is still recovering from his Achilles' tendon injury, so he is not ready to sign with a team at this point. Foster likely would be part of a committee if he signed with the Patriots, which would hurt is value. Foster probably would be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option. Foster could be a No. 3 running back or flex option if he joins a favorable situation.

NFL | Arian Foster on the mend

Fri, 20 May 2016 06:07:58 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is about a week or two away from being able to pass a physical, and his market should begin to heat up then.

Fantasy Tip: Foster will be 30 in August and is coming off two significant injuries in consecutive seasons. He could still latch on to lead a committee approach, but he's merely an RB3 in fantasy for now.
