Fantasy Football: Houston Texans RB Arian Foster’s Woes

There is one word in fantasy that no one wants associated with their star player: injury.

Arian Foster owners have been all too familiar with this word lately. After racking up 1,616 yards on the ground and 604 receiving yards with 18 total touchdowns in 2010, people were wishing for the opportunity to snag him for their fantasy team.

Unfortunately, those who got their Foster wish granted have seen his name more often on the injury report than the stat sheet.

After injuring his hamstring in preseason practice, Foster has had question marks surrounding his health. Making matters worse, Foster re-aggravated his hamstring in the Texans’ third preseason game, just two weeks prior to the start of the regular season.

Foster missed the Texans’ season-opening win against the Colts, but returned to the starting lineup against the Dolphins in Week 2. However, Foster’s highly anticipated return was brief. Foster rushed for 33 yards and caught two passes for seven yards before sitting out the second half with the same hamstring complaint.

Foster did not practice Wednesday and his status is certainly questionable.

Foster owners looking for a replacement should try and pick up fellow Texan running back Ben Tate. Originally third on the depth chart, Tate has made the most of his opportunities this season. With injuries to both Foster and Derrick Ward, Tate has rushed for 219 yards — good for third in the NFL in this young season.
