Texans | Arian Foster could return Week 2

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:13:28 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) has been working out in Houston, and he's expected to return to the field in some facet by Week 2 to Week 4, according to ESPN 97.5 in Houston's Jayson Braddock.

Fantasy Tip: Foster likely falls into the low-end RB1 range, and he could be an excellent value there if you have a legit RB2 to make up for his early season absence.

Texans | No timetable for Arian Foster

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:10:54 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is recovering from his groin surgery and there is no timetable for his return at this time, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is expected to miss a few weeks of the regular season but should be able play at some point. Foster could be an option in the middle to late rounds in drafts depending on when he is able to return.

Texans | More on Arian Foster's surgery

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 14:58:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) may only miss four to six weeks of the regular season, according to sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly. He was slated to miss two to three months of the season for surgery to reattach the groin to the bone, but the Houston Chronicle suggests he underwent a type of sports hernia surgery. "Dr. Meyers performs a Bassini-type hernia repair that he has performed on hundreds of professional athletes who have suffered a sports hernia," said Dr. Bert Mandelbaum, an orthopedic surgeon at Santa Monica Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Group in California who does not treat Foster. "We published an article together in the '90s regarding its effectiveness. Foster should be back to full form in two to three months depending on the details and spectrum of his injury."

Fantasy Tip: If Foster only misses four to six games, he shoots up into the RB2 conversation. Stay tuned for more details.

Texans | Arian Foster may return sooner?

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 07:27:07 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) may miss only four to six weeks of playing time instead of the two to three months that was originally mentioned as his recovery time, according to sources. Foster may start the season on the short-term Injured Reserve list, which would keep out for at least the first eight weeks of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye out on his recovery to see when Foster will be able to return. Foster could be a late-round option in drafts since he could help owners near the end of the season if he is healthy. Alfred Blue and Chris Polk likely will see more playing time and could be middle-round options depending on their roles.

Texans | Arian Foster will go on IR

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:18:51 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin), who had successful groin surgery Friday, Aug. 7, will be placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list, meaning he'll be eligible to return in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans have a bye in Week 9, so at the earliest, Foster would return to play for Houston in Week 10. Don't consider drafting him until the last several rounds of your draft. Alfred Blue should see most of the work as a result, and he's a midround target.

Texans | Arian Foster back in three months?

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 09:48:59 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) had surgery to fix a groin muscle that was torn off the bone Friday, Aug. 7, according to a source. A timetable on when he might return is unclear, but Houston is hoping Foster's recovery time will be shorter than three months, however. He will miss at least a few regular season games, and it's possible that he is placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The earliest the Texans can put him on IR is Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise if Foster isn't put on the short-term IR next month, meaning he's expected to miss at least half of the 2015 season. He's been a slow healer, too, so anything beyond three months of recovery wouldn't be a shock. Don't even consider drafting Foster until the last several rounds. Alfred Blue is expected to be the main back and is a midround commodity. The Texans could still add another runner on the free-agent market.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Foster will be able to return to the team, so owners will need to keep an eye out for a possible timetable. Alfred Blue and Chris Polk likely will see more playing time and should be attractive options for fantasy owners.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday, Aug. 10, to repair his groin injury.

Texans | Arian Foster meeting with specialist

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 11:14:38 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is scheduled to meet with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia Friday, Aug. 7, to receive another opinion on his injury. Meyers is an expert on sports hernias.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is expected to undergo surgery to repair his injury and miss at least half of the regular season. Alfred Blue and Chris Polk are the leading candidates to receive more playing time, but their fantasy value will be determined by the roles they receive.

Texans | Arian Foster probably going to IR

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:37:57 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) will likely begin the regular season on the short-term Reserve/Injured list. Foster suffered a groin injury Tuesday, Aug. 4, that will likely require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that this isn't happening in the midst of the season. The bad news is that Foster will probably still miss at least the first few weeks of the season. Alfred Blue becomes the top priority on the waiver wire for those who drafted Foster. For those who haven't drafted yet, Foster turns into a mid-round pick and should no longer be viewed as a RB1.

Texans | Arian Foster will have surgery

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:45:38 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) will undergo surgery on his injured groin. He should return during the season, however.

Fantasy Tip: Exactly when Foster will be able to return is still not known, but he will probably be forced to miss the first few games of the season at the least. Alfred Blue is now essentially a must add for those who have already drafted Foster. Foster is now out of the RB1 conversation.

Texans | Arian Foster may need surgery

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:06:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) may need surgery on his injured groin.

Fantasy Tip: If Foster does need surgery, Alfred Blue will already be one of the hottest waiver wire pickups of the year. Foster adds this injury to the plethora of injuries he has sustained in his career. He is one of the riskier top-end running backs in fantasy football. Those who have drafted and/or will draft him may want to take him later than he's currently being drafted and/or draft Blue in a later round as well. If Foster doesn't need surgery, it's a different story, but he still comes with risk considering his injury history.

Texans | Arian Foster already injured

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 10:20:35 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) suffered a groin injury during the team's first fully padded practice Monday, Aug. 3, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: We already knew that Foster was injury-prone, and he's becoming more of an injury risk as he ages. Be extremely careful not to overvalue Foster in fantasy football drafts because of his past success. Handcuffing him to Alfred Blue would be wise. There's a good chance that Foster could be a bust for his owners in 2015.

Texans | Arian Foster in rare company

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 13:17:56 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster became the seventh player in the last 20 years to score at least five rushing and five receiving touchdowns in the same season in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: What's more impressive is that Foster did that in 13 games. On the year, he amassed over 1,500 total yards and 13 total touchdowns. If Foster can stay healthy, he should be in RB1 territory once again in 2015.

Texans | Arian Foster has nose for end zone

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 20:56:48 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster has scored 62 total touchdowns in 66 games since taking over as the primary running back, including 13 in 13 games last year.

Fantasy Tip: Foster actually played just 10 full games last year and still managed to score 13 times. He is still the lead back in Houston, and thanks to his ability as a runner and a pass-catcher, he is still solid RB1 in all formats.

Texans | Arian Foster will be focus when healthy

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 16:10:28 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will get plenty of work on the ground this season, so long as he can stay healthy, according to head coach Bill O'Brien Wednesday, June 10. "Well, we have a very good running back," O'Brien said. "So you can rest assured that as long as he's healthy and he's out there, we will run the ball. I can tell you that. That's one thing we will do," said O'Brien. Foster has been available throughout organized team activities, and he has attended all of the Texans' voluntary offseason programs.

Fantasy Tip: Foster played 10 full games last season and parts of three others. Foster finished the season with 1,246 yards on the ground, 327 through the air, and 13 total touchdowns. At 28 years old, Foster should still have a couple seasons of elite-level production left in him, if he can stay healthy. Foster should be considered as a top-10 running back in redraft leagues.

Texans | Texans to scale back Arian Foster?

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:06:04 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will have his carries managed in game more often in 2015, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien also said that running back is a position the team will look at in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should still be considered a No. 1 running back for fantasy purposes, but if the Texans do use an early pick on a running back, that player will be worth owning as an insurance policy if you end up drafting Foster.

Texans | Arian Foster has hamstring injury

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 10:43:37 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 17 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans still have a chance to make the playoffs, so owners should monitor the situation to see if Foster would miss a possible playoff game. Foster likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds in 2015 drafts.

Texans | Arian Foster should play

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:31:30 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has only rushed for one touchdown in his last five games but has posted solid numbers as a runner and receiver each week. Foster should be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Texans | Arian Foster limited at practice

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 20:41:32 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (non-injury related) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should make a great option at running back at FantasyScore this weekend when he faces a Jacksonville defense that he torched for 148 total yards and a score in Week 14.

Texans | Limited practice for Arian Foster

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:58:02 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (non-injury related) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Foster was one of two veterans given time off to rest, helping to preserve him for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. He should have a solid stat line for FantasyScore owners. Foster posted 127 rushing yards and a score, while adding two grabs for 21 yards, in the Week 14 matchup at Jacksonville.

Texans | Arian Foster probable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:54:23 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Foster looks like he is good to go this week, but he is not a great starting option in FantasyScore at $7,300 this week. With an inexperienced quarterback, and going against one of the best run defenses in the NFL, there have been much better weeks to start Foster.

Texans | Arian Foster limited Thursday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:42:40 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after sitting out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) should suit up against the Baltimore Ravens. The problem is the Ravens are one of the best run-stopping units in the league this year, and Houston will be running with a very inexperienced quarterback. There have been much better weeks to use Foster at FantasyScore than this one.

Texans | Arian Foster sits out Wednesday

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:34:48 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) is sitting out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) is dealing with a new injury this week, but it doesn't appear to be very serious. We expect him to play in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Houston will be going with a QB without much experience and are going up against one of the best run-stuffing units in the league. That's a recipe to avoid Foster at FantasyScore.

Texans | Arian Foster has dominated Indy

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 23:34:07 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster has rushed 134 times for 861 yards and 8 touchdowns in seven career games against the Indianapolis Colts, averaging 143.5 yards per contest. Since 1960, that is the highest average per game versus one team by any player in the NFL (minimum five games).

Fantasy Tip: Foster is a spendy $7,600 (15.2%) in cap space on FantasyScore this weekend, but he should still manage to return positively on your investment. Start him with the utmost confidence.

Texans | Arian Foster good to go

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:21:38 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: You should try to find a way to get Foster ($7,600) into your FantasyScore lineups this weekend. The Colts have been generous to running backs this year, especially in the last four weeks, when they've allowed 25.28 fantasy points (on average) to the position.

Texans | Arian Foster misses practice

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 14:52:38 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It will be more concerning if Foster misses practice again tomorrow. For now, consider him a great play on FantasyScore at $7,600 against the Indianapolis Colts, who are tied for the third most rushing touchdowns allowed to the position.

Texans | Arian Foster not practicing

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:20:11 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,600) appears to be beyond his groin injury, as he's run for over 100 yards in five of the last seven games. He'll continue to be a great addition to your FantasyScore lineups this week, too, against the Indianapolis Colts, who have allowed an average of 25.28 fantasy points to running backs in the last four weeks.

Texans | Arian Foster breaks record

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 05:45:47 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster had 24 carries for 127 yards Sunday, Dec. 7. He broke RB Priest Holmes' record for the most 100-yard games by an undrafted player with his 32nd 100-yard rushing game.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has an unfavorable matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15. He's still an RB1 candidate on FantasyScore.

Texans | Probable status for Arian Foster

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:52:07 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,600) should be one of the safest FantasyScore options for lineups against the Jags this weekend. The Jags allow an average of 21.64 fantasy points to running backs this season.

Texans | Arian Foster limited Thursday

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:20:50 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Foster will cost a lot on FantasyScore this week at $7,600 but is worth the investment facing the Jacksonville Jaguars, who give up 21.64 fantasy points per game to the position.

Texans | Arian Foster sits out Wednesday

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 14:15:06 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: After returning in Week 13, the Texans are likely being cautious with Foster. Foster should once again put up some fine numbers in Week 14 against a poor Jacksonville Jaguars run defense, so strongly consider spending $7,600 on him at FantasyScore.

Texans | Arian Foster gets back into end zone

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 14:02:10 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) carried 19 times for 79 yards in the Week 13 game against the Tennessee Titans, and he added five receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: It was a successful return for Foster, who had missed the past two games due to a groin injury. He didn't seem to show any ill-effects of the injury, racking up 24 touches to just seven for backup Alfred Blue, and five for Jonathan Grimes. Foster should have a giant week, pun totally intended, in another favorable matchup in Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Texans | Arian Foster active Sunday

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 08:49:11 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is active Sunday, Nov. 30, for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) is a dynamic enough back that you should consider starting him on FantasyScore every time he suits up.

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 08:47:54 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is active for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: At a $7,300 salary in FantasyScore, he's pricey, but the matchup is juicy. Expect him to produce low-end RB1 numbers immediately, even if Alfred Blue takes some touches away.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is probable for Week 13 after being limited in practice Friday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300, 14.6%) has a terrific matchup with the Carolina Panthers, who surrender over 100 rushing yards and one touchdown per game to running backs.

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 10:28:43 -0800

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is expected to play in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien has been pleased with the way Foster has looked in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) should be a solid play for your FantasyScore lineups this weekend if he plays against the Tennessee Titans, a team that has struggled to stop the run all season long. Knock Alfred Blue ($5,700) down a few pegs in your rankings if Foster returns.

Texans | Arian Foster limited

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 15:47:38 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue monitoring this situation to see if he has a chance to play in Week 13. Foster may share carries with Alfred Blue if he is active for the game, so his $7,300 on FantasyScore may be too expensive for some owners.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is expected to play in Week 13, but owners should monitor his participation during the week to have a better idea on his status. Foster probably will not have a full workload if he is active for Week 13, and may be too expensive for some owners at $7,300 on FantasyScore.

Texans | Arian Foster back at practice

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 13:02:40 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Foster will be able to return this weekend after missing the last two weeks with a groin injury. However, he still could share time with Alfred Blue in order to be eased back in and may not be worth his price of $7,300 on FantasyScore.

Texans | Arian Foster expected to play

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:22:10 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) has an excellent chance to return in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans after missing the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) could be a game-time decision, but if he's in the lineup versus the Titans, one of the league's worst run defenses, you should feel comfortable spending top dollar on him at FantasyScore. Alfred Blue ($5,700) could be a good choice as a flex, even if Foster does play.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is highly unlikely to suit up Sunday, Nov. 23, for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is expected to receive at least 20 touches and makes for a solid RB2 or flex on FantasyScore this week.

Texans | Arian Foster a game-time decision?

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:22:07 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is questionable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Foster would be worked out prior to the game Sunday, Nov. 23, to see if he can play.

Fantasy Tip: If Foster ($7,300) plays against the Bengals, he's a fine option for FantasyScore lineups, since Cincy allows an average of 22.76 fantasy points to running backs this year. Either way, Alfred Blue ($5,800) should have a big enough role to be considered for a flex spot.

Texans | Arian Foster misses practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:50:27 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after being limited the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: A downgrade this late in the week certainly isn't promising. If Foster is unable to play, Alfred Blue will once again start at running back. The two would split carries if Foster does play, as reported earlier. Foster's FantasyScore price of $7,300 is starting to seem like it won't be worth the investment this week.

Texans | Arian Foster likely to share carries

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 06:07:28 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is likely to share carries with RB Alfred Blue if Foster is able to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) presents a very risky play on FantasyScore this week that you might want to avoid. Blue ($5,800; 11.6%) isn't a very attractive play at that price either if Foster plays.

Fantasy Tip: Foster's status for Week 12 is still unknown, and we may not get any updates until later in the week. Check back to see if he is able to do more in practice tomorrow. Even if he is active, it is not a great matchup for Foster against Cincinnatti. Look elsewhere in FantasyScore this week.

Texans | Alfred Blue ties franchise record

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 18:41:32 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried a franchise-record 36 times for 156 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns in place of the injured RB Arian Foster (groin). His 156 yards tied a rookie franchise record previously set by RB Steve Slaton back in 2008.

Fantasy Tip: Blue will be a popular pick in FantasyScore again in Week 12 if Foster is sidelined again. More will be known on Foster's status Friday. If he is ruled out again, remember Blue's name, although he won't be nearly as cheap in FantasyScore next time around.
