Texans | Arian Foster practices

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:11:30 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: The team may take things slowly with Foster because it is a hamstring injury, but it appears like Foster should be ready for the start of the season. Foster probably will be selected in one of the first few rounds and should be started in all leagues.

Texans | Arian Foster sits

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:31:30 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Monday, July 28. Foster had his hamstring stretched during practice Sunday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: This was just a precaution. Foster is too valuable to risk getting injured in training camp and he'll probably see limited action in the preseason. It is best to keep an eye on him, however. As long as he's healthy, he's an RB1 candidate in all scoring formats.

Texans | Arian Foster leaves practice

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 21:39:03 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (undisclosed) left practice early Sunday, July 27, but the injury does not appear to be serious.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has dealt with injuries in the past, but there is enough time for him to get healthy before the start of the season. If healthy, Foster should be a starting running back in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | Arian Foster to fill Kevin Faulk role

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 05:34:30 -0700

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said RB Arian Foster would fill the roles that RBs Kevin Faulk and Danny Woodhead did with the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: On the surface, that doesn't seem like an encouraging tidbit because those two didn't run the ball as much as a lead back does. However, if they feed him the ball and feature him in those receiving roles, he could return to elite fantasy status.

Texans | Arian Foster to be used a lot

Thu, 22 May 2014 05:32:06 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster expects to be utilized a lot in 2014. "Coach (Bill) O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield," Foster said. "That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."

Fantasy Tip: Foster is apparently 100 percent recovered from offseason back surgery and is ready to roll. While his usage won't be as high as it was when he was a consensus top-three fantasy football selection, he still could be quite productive. His fall outside the first round is more indicative of his true value.

Texans | Arian Foster cleared

Wed, 07 May 2014 09:39:26 -0700

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said RB Arian Foster (back) has been cleared for football activities and looked fine during the team's workout Tuesday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Foster likely will receive most of the carries for the team this upcoming season. Even though there is an injury risk with Foster, he should be seen as a starting running back in all fantasy leagues in 2014 but is no longer a top-five pick.

Texans | Andre Brown agrees to terms

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 13:16:05 -0700

The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with free-agent RB Andre Brown (Giants). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Brown likely will back up Arian Foster this upcoming season. Most fantasy owners should consider Brown as a possible handcuff to Foster during draft or as a flex option.
