2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks

Update (10/20): Foster has a hamstring injury which caused him to miss most of the Texans' week 7 game against Kansas City. When healthy Foster is a must start, but his inability to stay on the field is costing fantasy owners. If you're an Arian Foster owner you have to keep an eye on his injury status each week. This seems to be the norm with Foster, so owners should know better by now.
Profile: At age 26, Foster is in the prime of his NFL career. In just 4 years we'll be looking for declining numbers and he'll slip from first in our drafts to 10th. For the time being Forster is healthy, in his mid 20s and playing in a run happy offense. There is little reason to believe he will not be one of the league's top 5 backs again this season.
Update: One of the top picks in the draft is now dealing with a back injury. Have we seen this preseason Foster scare before? Yes and no. Last year it was a preseason hamstring injury that scared owners from Foster. Some lucky fantasy players stole him as late as 6 or 7 last season. This year, we've been waiting to see him on the field and Head Coach Gary Kubiak didn't do much to help us feel better. Foster has been dealing with back pain that has been "bothering him in his legs." This is not good news. We feel this injury has legitimate legs and we'd defer to other options in the first round. We've been down on Foster all summer due to the heavy workload he has experienced over the past few seasons. Very few backs can sustain that type of wear and tear over the long haul. Players like LeSean McCoy, Ray Rice and Trent Richardson all feel safer to us at this point. Don't let him slip into the second round or anything crazy like that, but proceed with caution.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
1.06 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - I love the mid round picks in round 1. You just take one of the top Rbs that fall to you and I was happy to have Foster slide to me. Many are predicting the demise of Foster. I am not one of them. I still have him as the #2 back on my board.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
1.07 The Huddle - Foster is easily a top-5 guy; I wasn't expecting him to fall to me here, but I'm glad he did as there were six guys I was excited about landing at this spot--and he was one of them.

June 25th, 2013
1.04 FFToday - My initial plan was to take Calvin Johnson here and see what kind of running back depth I could build after taking a wide receiver early in the draft. I didn't anticipate Foster being available but when he was, I quickly pulled the trigger.
