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.
