Houston Texans RB Arian Foster rushed for 138 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders, and he added two receptions for 12 yards. Foster has back-to-back 100-yard rushing games to open the season.
Fantasy Tip: There was concern for fantasy owners on Draft Day with Foster coming back from back surgery, but so far and so good. He has re-emerged as a top-notch fantasy option, but injuries will always be a concern. In handcuff news, Alfred Blue appears to have leapfrogged Jonathan Grimes behind Foster on the depth chart.

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried 11 times for 40 yards in the Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders, while RB Jonathan Grimes had just three carries for nine yards. Neither player had a reception.
Fantasy Tip: Blue appears to have unofficially moved ahead of Grimes on the depth chart behind Arian Foster. However, neither is particularly useful from a fantasy perspective unless Foster goes down with a long-term injury.

Fantasy Tip: Graham only costs $3,700 on FantasyScore, but owners likely will have better options available at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson led the team in receiving yards in Week 1 and should continue to be the team's top receiving target. Johnson costs $6,700 at FantasyScore and could be a solid option for owners.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels, who has nine catches for 62 yards and two touchdowns in two weeks, said he is very familiar and comfortable with offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system from their time together with the Houston Texans. "Coach Kubiak likes to run two tight end sets. We did a decent amount of three tight end sets out there and mixed up formations and personnel groupings. The more a defense has to prepare for, the easier it makes it for us. That was kind of the signature of a Kubiak game plan," Daniels said.
Fantasy Tip: Daniels is worth watching, but his value is likely to be dependent on scoring, which will likely make him a frustrating play on a weekly basis. Also, Dennis Pitta isn't likely to be phased out of Joe Flacco's progressions.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should be able to play this week and receive most of the work at the position. Foster has a good matchup against the Oakland Raiders but will be an expensive addition to a team on FantasyScore at $8,500.

Houston Texans TE Garrett Graham (back), who missed practice last week and was inactive in Week 1, has a good chance of playing in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. "Garrett will be in the game on Sunday," O'Brien said. O'Brien also said TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (foot) is "day-to-day."
Fantasy Tip: Graham will cost you the minimum for tight ends in Week 2 at FantasyScore ($3,700), but he should probably be avoided everywhere.
