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.
