Dolphins | Arian Foster will not play

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:52:41 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will continue to share work at running back with Foster sidelined. None of the running back posted great numbers in the team's Week 3 game and they likely will not receive enough carries to have a big impact. Ajayi may be a flex option in deeper leagues, but most owners should be able to find better options.

Dolphins | Arian Foster misses practice again

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 14:58:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 27. Foster's status is an estimate as the Dolphins did not conduct a practice.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is doubtful in a short week for the Dolphins. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will comprise a committee backfield, but that backfield is too much of a crapshoot right now to seriously consider starting anyone. If push comes to shove, Ajayi is the better bet.

Dolphins | Arian Foster still sidelined

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 14:46:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Monday, Sept. 26. Foster's status is an estimate as the Dolphins did not conduct a practice.

Fantasy Tip: The signs are pointing to Foster missing at least another week, especially since the Dolphins play on Thursday in Week 4. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will comprise a committee backfield, but that backfield is too much of a crapshoot right now to seriously consider starting anyone. If hard pressed, though, Ajayi is the better bet.

Dolphins | Arian Foster doubtful for Week 4

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:08:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) won't be rushed back, according to head coach Adam Gase, which casts him as doubtful for Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Ajayi had just seven rushes for 28 yards, but a touchdown saved his performance in Week 3. However, he lost a fumble in the game as well. He's a flex option against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

Dolphins | Week 3 inactives for Miami

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 08:43:03 -0700

Dolphins | Arian Foster ruled out

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 13:22:14 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) will not play Week 3 versus the Cleveland Browns due to a groin strain.

Fantasy Tip: Given Foster's injury history, this was the expected outcome. The 30-year-old should be considered week-to-week at this point, although it's not as if he was getting much done on the ground anyway (16 carries for 47 yards). Head coach Adam Gase said Friday he doesn't know which running back will start in Foster's place, meaning not even Jay Ajayi can be considered a flex option in what should be a plus-matchup.

Dolphins | Arian Foster misses practice

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 12:16:53 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22. Head coach Adam Gase said the team is trying to figure out the severity of Foster's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Foster probably will not play in Week 3 and could miss more time depending on the injury. Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will share snaps if Foster misses the game with Ajayi likely to receive most of the carries. Ajayi could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues, while Drake may not be a great fantasy option.

Dolphins | Arian Foster not expected to play

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:22:14 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, and appears to be a long shot to play in Week 3. He may have a chance to play in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if Foster has any chance to play this week. Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would receive more playing time if Foster is inactive with Ajayi likely to receive a majority of the work. Ajayi should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option.

Dolphins | Miami optimistic about Arian Foster

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 16:37:18 -0700

The Miami Dolphins are "cautiously optimistic" regarding RB Arian Foster (groin). He has not yet been ruled out for Week 3. His status may not be better determined until later in the week, however.

Fantasy Tip: If Foster can't take the field against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday then Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would be the primary beneficiaries in his stead. If Foster is out, Ajayi wouldn't be a bad start as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 against a lowly Cleveland defense.

Dolphins | Arian Foster has strained groin

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 11:57:55 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) is dealing with a groin strain and his status for Week 3 is in question. He is not expected to miss more than one to two games.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised if Foster sits this weekend. If he does, Jay Ajayi then takes the start in Miami's backfield, with Kenyan Drake also in the mix. Ajayi could achieve RB2 numbers in a favorable matchup against the Cleveland Browns, but it might be safer to start him as a flex.

Dolphins | Arian Foster day-to-day

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 11:53:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) is considered day-to-day with a groin injury, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase said he is unsure if Foster will practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would take over Miami's backfield if Foster is unable to play this weekend. Close attention should be paid to Foster's practice participation throughout the week. Ajayi would be a decent flex start against a bad Cleveland Browns defense if Foster is ruled out.

Dolphins | Arian Foster to have MRI

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 05:18:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) will have an MRI on his injured groin Monday, Sept. 19, but the team is concerned he'll miss at least Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake figure to see the most action in Foster's absence. Ajayi is probably owned in most leagues, but Drake had a seven-yard score in Week 2, which lends confidence for a pickup.

Dolphins | Arian Foster to miss time?

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:17:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) left the Week 2 game against the New England Patriots due to a groin injury, and beat writer Adam Beasley believes the injury might be more than a one-week issue. RB Jay Ajayi filled in, running five times for 14 yards while adding four receptions for 31 yards.

Fantasy Tip: If Foster is forced to miss time it would be Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake filling in. Ajayi would be the better fantasy option of the two.

Dolphins | Arian Foster leaves with injury

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 11:17:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 2 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has dealt with injuries during his career, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Jay Ajayi may be the next in line for the starting job if Foster is dealing with a serious injury and could be a flex option for owners.

Dolphins | Arian Foster to play

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:27:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should receive his normal workload even though he missed a day of practice this week. He recorded 100 yards in total offense in Week 1 and should be involved in the passing game again this week. Foster can be a No. 2 running back in a majority of leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster will play Sunday

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 06:21:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will be active for Week 2's game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Foster participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 15, and Friday, Sept. 16, and he is expected to receive the bulk of the work at running back this week. He should be viewed as a viable RB2 or flex option in all fantasy formats.

Dolphins | Arian Foster listed as questionable

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 13:05:13 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, but is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should be able to play this week and likely will receive most of the work at the running back position. He was able to record 100 total yards last week and should be a decent No. 2 running back in most leagues. He will have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he will be involved in the passing game.

Dolphins | Arian Foster practices in full

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 12:22:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Foster likely will receive most of the work at running back his week and will also be involved in the passing game. He will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense but should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster back at practice

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 11:08:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Foster missed practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, but appears to be on track to play in Week 2 as long as he does not suffer a setback. He had a solid performance in Week 1 and should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster misses practice

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 13:57:17 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Foster's status during the week to see if he will be able to play in Week 2. He posted 100 yards of total offense in the first game of the season and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he is active for the game.

Dolphins | Arian Foster totals 100 yards

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 22:22:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster ran 13 times for 38 yards in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks in his team debut, and he added three receptions for a team-best 62 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Foster was the top dog with Damien Williams only occasionally spelling him while Jay Ajayi was back in Miami. As long as he can stay healthy and carry the load almost exclusively, he is a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats.

Dolphins | Arian Foster officially starting

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 12:23:46 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster has officially been listed as Miami's starting running back.

Fantasy Tip: Not a big surprise. Foster is healthy and impressed in the preseason. Jay Ajayi should still see a decent workload this season, and he could definitely take over as starter if Foster gets injured. For those last-minute drafters, Foster is a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 consideration, while Ajayi is more of a low-end RB3 to high-end RB4 option with Foster healthy.

Dolphins | Arian Foster could have most touches

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 12:03:01 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster "may end up with more touches this season" than the starter, RB Jay Ajayi.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has looked pretty good so far this preseason, including in the club's most recent contest on Thursday when he rushed for a touchdown and also logged two catches for 20 yards. It's hard to guess which of the two tailbacks will yield the most fantasy points this year, but Foster could be the safer option based on his proven track record. As a result, he's worth going after in the middle rounds, though owners also have to realize he's still injury-prone.

Dolphins | Forgettable debut for Arian Foster

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 19:46:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster made his team debut Friday, Aug. 19, against the Dallas Cowboys, losing five yards on two carries.

Fantasy Tip: His age and recent injuries are concerns, but Foster's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield should ensure him a steady role in the offense. He is a RB3 candidate in PPR formats.

Dolphins | Arian Foster to debut

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:28:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') will make his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 19, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has missed a huge portion of the last couple of years due to serious injuries, and at 30, the time is ticking on his fantasy window. He's an RB3 with some upside in PPR leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster to miss first preseason game

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 07:58:51 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster will not play in the first preseason game, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Fantasy Tip: Foster and Jay Ajayi figure to split the work, but Foster is coming off of two major injuries at age 30. Both are RB3 worthy, but Ajayi has the upside of youth.

Dolphins | Arian Foster showing to be best back

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 07:36:17 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster has been "head and shoulders" the best running back in practice, in the opinion of beat writer Armando Salguero.

Fantasy Tip: It's worth noting that Jay Ajayi (knee) hasn't been out there, and this report should be taken with a grain of salt. Foster and Ajayi are expected to split the load, and both are worth RB3 consideration in fantasy.

Dolphins | Arian Foster works with top unit

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 20:35:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster worked with the first unit again in practice Monday, Aug. 1, with RB Jay Ajayi (knee) sidelined. Head coach Adam Gase said "(Foster) is going to be working with the ones the whole training camp. His resume speaks for itself. I don't think there's any question why we brought him in here. He's playing this year. Whether he's the guy that will be the first snap of the game, time will tell. He is going to be rolling with the ones."

Fantasy Tip: Incumbent Jay Ajayi was expected to start, but it appears Foster has already overtaken him on the depth chart. Foster should be the first Miami back drafted for fantasy purposes in the neighborhood of Rounds 4 or 5 at the latest.

Dolphins | Isaiah Pead running with starters

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:42:30 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead is working with the starting unit Monday, Aug. 1, while RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is sidelined. RB Arian Foster spelled Pead with the second unit.

Fantasy Tip: Pead will likely need a good camp to make the club, and they're still probably easing Foster in. Ajayi and Foster figure to be the bulk of the timeshare, and Kenyon Drake will probably slot in afterwards. Ajayi and Foster are in the high-end RB3 range, and Drake is an RB5 flyer. Pead isn't worth a fantasy grab for now.

Dolphins | Arian Foster activated from PUP list

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 06:13:40 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has been limited to 25 games over the past three seasons, and entering his age-30 campaign, he's probably not going to be utilized as the bell-cow back of the past. Foster is still a sound selection in the middle rounds of drafts because of the uncertainty of the rest of the Miami backfield. And perhaps, a few less touches will help keep him healthy. Just don't count on 16 big games from the veteran.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
