Texans HC Gary Kubiak sets a Week 1 carry limit for RB Arian Foster: 42

If Arian Foster @ArianFoster carries the ball 42 times Monday night against the Chargers, it tells you two things: He has completely recovered from his cruel summer of injuries, and Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is trying to lose his job. Kubiak joked Thursday that Foster's carry limit is 42.
"I'll tell you what, he looks really good," Kubiak said of Foster when he wasn't joking. "He's come a long way. I've been impressed with his wind, his conditioning. It'll be the first time he's been hit – that's just part of it – but he's come a long way. He had some good work."

Fantasy Analysis:

Ben Tate @BenTateRB is going to get plenty of playing time in this game, and the Texans should be a little cautious with Foster after he spent the past three months prior to this week without practicing or playing. Maybe he gets "just" 20 touches, but that should be enough for him to produce a solid fantasy line. Roll with Foster and hope he doesn't doesn't strain anything.
