Arian Foster RB HOU 4 months ago

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien believes Foster has a lot of good football left, NFL.com reports.

Foster has only played 21 games over the past two seasons, but his performance in those games leaves little doubt that he's still one of the better running backs in the league. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry for an otherwise hopeless team in 2013, and then posted a 260-1,246-8 rushing line (4.8 YPC) over 13 games in 2014. Also still a major threat as a receiver, Foster will be the Texans' bellcow in 2015, even if the team tries to work in a bit more Alfred Blue and/or Jonathan Grimes. Foster will turn 29 shortly before the season, and his ability to stay healthy remains the biggest concern.

Foster left Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hamstring injury.

With Foster hobbled, Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes are in line to see added touches in the Texans' Week 17 rushing attack.

Foster (hip) had 25 carries for 96 rushing yards, one catch on four targets for 23 receiving yards, and he threw a five-yard touchdown pass to tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz during Sunday's win over the Ravens.

With the Texans now on their fourth starting quarterback of the season, Foster's role becomes even bigger as they hold onto the small hope of making the playoffs. Fantasy owners should expect a heavy workload in Week 17 against a Jaguars defense allowing the seventh-most rushing yards per game this season.

Foster (hip) is listed active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports.

With Case Keenum expected to get the nod at QB for the Texans this week, look for Foster -- who has recorded 50 carries over the last two weeks - to continue to see a high volume of work on Sunday.

Foster (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Texans' official site reports.

Foster -- who has racked up 50 carries over the last two weeks -- practiced fully Friday and he figures to be busy again on Sunday, with the Texans expected to start Case Keenum at QB this weekend.

Foster (hip) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

We'll revisit Foster's status Friday, though at this stage, the running back seems likely to draw a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Foster (hip) didn't practice Wednesday, the Texans' official site reports.

Foster (who had previously been listed as having a groin injury) is now listed as having a hip issue this week, but there's a decent chance that his absence from practice Wednesday is maintenance-related, a notion that would be confirmed by his return to the field in some capacity Thursday.

Foster (groin) had 26 carries for 99 rushing yards and three catches on four targets for 18 receiving yards during Sunday's loss to the Colts.

As if Foster's role in the offense wasn't big enough, he could get his most usage all season in Week 16, after starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a broken leg against the Colts on Sunday, and then backup Tom Savage took a hit to his knee late in the game and was seen wearing a brace after the contest. Unfortunately, the Texans will take on the Ravens, who are allowing the fourth-fewest rushing yards per game this season, which isn't exactly an ideal opportunity for Foster, who has rushed 50 times for 226 yards and a touchdown in his last two games.

Foster (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Foster was listed as probable for the game and will get a chance to extend his excellent play of late, which has seen him post 253 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns over the last two games.

Foster (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Colts, the Texans' official site reports.

As long as he avoids any injury setbacks, Foster -- who has logged 204 carries for 1,0128 yards in 10 games to date -- should remain locked in fantasy lineups down the stretch.
