Summary

Running Back Rank: #25All Players: #56
Despite missing three games because of injury, Foster still finished fifth in fantasy running back scoring last season. He was force when on the field, having seven 100-yard games. He had 1,573 total yards, averaging 121 total yards per game. He also scored 13 touchdowns. Foster was the focal point of the Texans' offense and produced big number despite teams keying on stopping him. Foster is 29 years old and battled injury the last few seasons. He has a ton of carries under his belt and you have to wonder how much he really has left in the tank. He will be the No. 1 back in this offense as long as he is healthy, though. When healthy, Foster is a complete back. Foster has size, speed, vision and plus hands. He does a great job of setting his blocks and hitting the hole in a hurry. Foster might have the best vision of any back in the game.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Foster carries more risk than your usual No. 1 backs. He fell some last year in drafts because of injury and ended up being a steal for many fantasy teams. Unfortunately, he won't fall as far this season, making him a riskier pick because of his health concerns. Foster has huge upside if healthy, though. He can carry a fantasy team. Expect around 1,500 total yards and 12 touchdowns, but also prepare for him to miss a few games.

comments about Arian Foster

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) may only miss four to six weeks of the regular season, according to sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly. He was slated to miss two to three months of the season for surgery to reattach the groin to the bone, but the Houston Chronicle suggests he underwent a type of sports hernia surgery. 'Dr. Meyers performs a Bassini-type hernia repair that he has performed on hundreds of professional athletes who have suffered a sports hernia,' said Dr. Bert Mandelbaum, an orthopedic surgeon at Santa Monica Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Group in California who does not treat Foster. 'We published an article together in the '90s regarding its effectiveness. Foster should be back to full form in two to three months depending on the details and spectrum of his injury.'

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) may miss only four to six weeks of playing time instead of the two to three months that was originally mentioned as his recovery time, according to sources. Foster may start the season on the short-term Injured Reserve list, which would keep out for at least the first eight weeks of the season.
Fantasy Impact: This is a little better news but don't expect the Texans to rush him back. They don't want him to get hurt again.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) had surgery to fix a groin muscle that was torn off the bone Friday, Aug. 7, according to a source. A timetable on when he might return is unclear, but Houston is hoping Foster's recovery time will be shorter than three months, however. He will miss at least a few regular season games, and it's possible that he is placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The earliest the Texans can put him on IR is Sept. 6.
