Texans | Houston to run more in 2016?

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 13:55:40 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster may be utilized more next season after team owner Bob McNair said the Texans need to get the running game going again.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Foster needs to be healthy in order to run the ball, and staying healthy is something he has struggled with throughout his career. There is also the possibility that Foster is released this offseason, which would give Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes the reins at running back. Houston would also likely add to the position through the draft or free agency if Foster were released. The running back position is too cloudy right now, but McNair's words could bode well for whoever is in the backfield next season.

Texans | Arian Foster cleared to jog

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 07:19:18 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') has been cleared to jog without pivoting, cutting or explosive activity.

Fantasy Tip: Foster may not be back with the Texans, but he's still quite valuable if he returns to full health in 2016. Keep an eye on his rehab.

Texans | Arian Foster working to return

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 20:57:31 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') has been in the team's facilities working hard on his rehab, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance Foster will be cut before next season, but assuming he lands elsewhere, he could still have legit fantasy value depending on the situation.

Texans | Arian Foster likely to be released

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 07:36:30 -0800

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is expected to be released before the new league year begins in March, according to multiple sources not authorized to speak publicly. Foster, 30, would have a cap hit of $8.925 million for the 2016 season. The sources also said they expect him to sign elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is coming off a torn Achilles', but he still has a lot of name value. He should be able to land at least a timeshare spot next season. He'll be worth watching in the offseason for PPR leagues. The Texans may decide to run with Alfred Blue or draft another back. If Blue is their guy, he'd be an RB3 candidate in fantasy.

Texans | Alfred Blue part of committee?

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 01:34:02 -0700

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (toe) is feeling better after battling a toe injury, and he is likely to lead a committee-based approach at running back with RB Chris Polk and RB Jonathan Grimes in the wake of the season-ending injury to Arian Foster (Achilles').

Fantasy Tip: When Foster missed the start of the season, Blue ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) delivered duds in Week 1 and Week 2 before tallying 139 yards in a score and Week 3. He isn't the type of back you start every week at FantasyScore, but he could be a solid source of cap relief against weaker opponents.

Texans | Houston not interested in Pierre Thomas

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 01:27:37 -0700

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints), who was offered a contract by the Houston Texans in the preseason, has not been contacted by the team since RB Arian Foster (Achilles') was lost for the season, according to a source. The Texans plan to stick with the backs currently on their roster.

Texans | Arian Foster officially out for the year

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 13:57:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is officially out for the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue should be the lead running back going forward. Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes will also have their roles and are usually more involved in the passing game. Unfortunately, the Texans face one of the better fantasy rush defenses in the NFL in the Tennessee Titans next week.

Texans | Arian Foster to have MRI

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 08:18:14 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is undergoing an MRI exam Monday, Oct. 26, to confirm a torn Achilles' tendon. Foster was using crutches after the Week 7 game. He finished the game against the Miami Dolphins with 125 total yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: You can now drop Foster in redraft leagues immediately and start looking for replacements on the waiver wire. Alfred Blue will likely see the majority of touches in the backfield now, and he should be picked up right away in all formats. Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk are the consolation prizes in deeper leagues.

Texans | Tear confirmed for Arian Foster

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 15:34:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 25. Foster is done for the season.

Fantasy Tip: With Foster on the shelf it is back to a hodgepodge of runners in Houston, with Alfred Blue ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely leading the charge. Chris Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will also try to help shoulder some of the load.

Texans | Arian Foster may have torn Achilles'

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 13:54:26 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') suffered an Achilles' injury late in the fourth quarter of Week 7's game against the Miami Dolphins. Doctors fear that he may have a torn Achilles'.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) had 59 rushing yards and 66 receiving yards with two touchdowns before sustaining the injury. If he has a torn Achilles', he could end up missing the rest of the season. Alfred Blue ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Chris Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) stand to gain the most playing time if Foster is sidelined for an extended period of time. Check back regularly for updates on Foster's condition.
