Texans RB Arian Foster expected to play

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported via Twitter that Houston Texans running back Arian Foster @ArianFoster is "expected to play today, though Houston wants to test him in pregame warmups first." Barring any setback, fantasy football's No. 1 RB should see the field against a questionable Miami Dolphins' defense.

Fantasy Analysis:

Fantasy owners should feel confident starting Foster this week, but what they should really be looking for is how the right side of the offensive line plays. Houston overhauled their line and owe much of their recent success to that unit. Ben Tate @BenTateRB should probably stay on the bench since Miami actually allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to running backs last season. In total, they only gave up six TDs to backs all year long, the second-best total in the NFL. If Miami happens to take an early lead, that means even fewer carries for both Foster and Tate against what was a stout run defense last year.
