| After being an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2009, Foster has emerged as not only the top rated fantasy running back in 2012 but also as a contender for the title of the leagueís top player at his position. Although a hamstring injury caused him to miss two and a half games and he sat out Week 17, Foster still managed to finish the season as the 4th ranked running back in total fantasy points and 1st on a per game basis. If you want consistency, Foster also provides that, having reached double-digit fantasy points in 27 of his last 31 games. Are there concerns? Sure. The team lost two starters along the offensive line (Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel), Foster signed a lucrative long term contract and backup Ben Tate proved he was worthy of touches as he came within 58 yards of topping 1,000 rushing yards. While Tate is good, Foster is clearly the Texans go to player on offense and it is worth noting that Tate was barely used in the teamís two playoff games last season and averaged less than ten touches per game when Foster was healthy. Itís a no-brainer, folks. If you have the 1st selection in your fantasy draft, Foster is your pick.
|Arian Foster announces retirement -- Mon Oct 24 9:30 pm --|
Ends final season with 22 carries for 58 yards
|Rendered a non-factor in Miami's offense amid Jay Ajayi's emergence as a burgeoning superstar, veteran running back Arian Foster announced his retirement Monday.
Foster made his Dolphins debut as the Week 1 starter, but was waylaid by the latest in a long line of soft-tissue injuries early in the Week 2 loss to the Patriots. He will finish his brief Miami career with 55 rushing yards on 22 attempts. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: For about a five-year stretch, Foster was a dominant fantasy force who was an ideal fit for Gary Kubiak's zone running scheme in Houston before persistent soft-tissue injuries dogged him at the end. This news should lock in Jay Ajayi as the clear lead back in Miami for the foreseeable future, something he had already started to do over the last two weeks.

|Here in Miami, the #Dolphins get a boost. Told both Arian Foster, S Reshad Jones to play. Secondary needs all help it can get vs #Steelers (Aditi Kinkhabwala on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Foster was limited in practice this week with a groin injury. Given his fragileness and mediocre matchup, he's only a recommended fantasy play for desperate owners. His value comes in PPR leagues.
| Arian Foster a gametime decision -- Fri Oct 14 1:00 pm --|

FF Today's Take: Foster has been nursing a hamstring injury the last few weeks and was able to practice on a limited basis this week. Even if he plays, Foster will be a Flex option only against the Steelers.
| Arian Foster has "groin strain" -- Tue Sep 20 12:48 pm --|
Dolphins RB will likely miss 1-2 games
|NFL writer Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) on Twitter: "Early word on #Dolphins RB Arian Foster is it's just a groin strain. Iffy for Sunday but probably won't miss more than 1-2 games." (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Foster's status for Sunday is questionable, but would probably be considered doubtful if that designation was still available. He shouldn't miss more than a game or two and will see his carries consumed by a committee of Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake. Ajayi would likely draw the start if Foster has to sit out against the Browns.
