NFL | Arian Foster close to passing physical

Sat, 21 May 2016 19:32:11 -0700

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.

Dolphins | No contract for Arian Foster, Miami

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 14:37:18 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without a contract.

Fantasy Tip: It has already been stated that Foster will not sign with anyone until he is fully healthy, so this should come as no surprise. Foster could still sign with the Dolphins once he deems himself to be at full health, but for now, it's a waiting game. As far as fantasy value, Foster is no longer a featured back and will be part of a committee wherever he goes. He's a decent-sized risk, too, with his injury history. He should not be viewed as more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

NFL | Arian Foster won't sign until healthy

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 13:18:14 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) wants to be completely healthy before he signs with anyone, which could be in late May or in June.

Fantasy Tip: Foster visited the Dolphins on Monday, but don't expect him to sign with them right away. Miami is in need of another running back after losing Lamar Miller and missing out on C.J. Anderson. Jay Ajayi is the main running back for now. He has RB2 potential as of now, but that potential will likely go down if/when the Dolphins add another running back.

Dolphins | Arian Foster visiting Miami

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 08:11:27 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) will visit the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, March 29. Foster, who is rehabbing from a torn Achilles', should be far enough in his rehab to pass a physical.

Fantasy Tip: Foster could still be worth a RB3 selection if he's healthy.

Dolphins | Miami open to trading for RB

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 12:00:47 -0700

The Miami Dolphins are exploring trade options for a running back to pair with RB Jay Ajayi, and they've had conversations with multiple teams, according to a league source at the NFL annual meetings this week. There are no specific names of running backs the Dolphins have asked about, though, and no trade appears imminent. A veteran player like free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) hasn't been ruled out, either.

Fantasy Tip: The new Miami coaching regime likes Ajayi, but they have their doubts that he can hold up to a full-time role in the backfield, and with good reason. In nine games last year he had 49 carries for 187 yards (3.8 average) and one touchdown. Depending on how Miami splits the carries, Ajayi could have low-end RB2 ability in this offense.

Texans | Arian Foster still passionate

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 10:40:56 -0700

Former Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') still has a passion for football and is still motivated to play, despite the rigorous process of rehabilitating his ruptured Achilles' tendon, according to his brother, Abdul Foster.

Fantasy Tip: Foster seems determined to return to the gridiron. This recent injury and his extensive injury history could make teams hesitant to take a chance on him, though. Wherever he plays, he probably won't be the featured back anymore, so don't draft him as a RB1.

NFL | Arian Foster training twice a day

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 06:39:42 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achillies') is training twice a day at IX Innovations, an elite fitness and training facility in Southwest Houston. He is motivated and doing great, according to Abdul Foster, the running back's older brother, trainer and owner of IX Innovations.

Fantasy Tip: With so much uncertainty surrounding Foster's fantasy stock, it is important to focus on the known. He is entering his age-30 season, hasn't played a full campaign since 2012 and is likely to split carries in a backfield committee. His name value will likely make him too costly in the majority of drafts and auctions entering the 2016 season.
