|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.

Eagles rescind restricted free agent offer
|The Texans signed veteran running back Chris Polk on Tuesday.
Polk, 25, was a restricted free agent who didnít sign his tender with Philadelphia, and it was rescinded, making him an unrestricted free agent.
FF Today's Take: Polk played sparingly last season for the Eagles totaling 46 attempts for 172 yards. He did see action inside the redzone, scoring four TDs but wasn't fantasy relevant. Polk joins Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes as backups to Arian Foster. We'll wait and see if Houston decides to add a running back in the upcoming draft.
