Add This

2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Clear-cut best RB in fantasy

(+) Foster isn’t just a big back (6’1”, 229 lbs), but also has the skills to make him one of the few every-down RBs in the league

(+) Averaged nearly 100 yards rushing, four catches, 50 yards receiving and almost a TD per game (in 13 games)

(+) One of only a select few RBs that can catch 60+ passes a season while averaging 10 yards per catch

(+) Had 100+ yards rushing in 9 of 15 games last season (including playoffs)

(+) Had 100+ yards receiving in three games last season

(+) Finished the season on a hot streak with 552 yards, five TDs and four 100-yard games in his final four games (two reg. season/two playoffs). Lots of big plays!

(+) Had over 120 total yards in 11 of his 15 total games

(+) Scored at least one TD in 11 of his 15 total games

(–) Seems to be a bit injury-prone while running in a decidedly injury-prone offense

(–) Has only two seasons of work on his resume

(–) Is this guy to good to be true?

Add This

Pros and Cons for 2011

(+) In 2010, Foster led the league in rushing yards, total yards and touchdowns

(+) Led the entire NFL (including quarterbacks) in fantasy points

(+) Had eight 100-yard games and seven multiple-TD games in 2010

(+) Foster isn’t just a big back (6’1”, 227 lbs) built for first- and second-down duty, he also has the receiving skills to make him one of the few every-down RBs in the league

(+) Went from an undrafted cast-off to a bona-fide fantasy RB1 in just one year

(+) Kubiak didn’t get canned by the Texans, so the offensive system will stay the same for at least one more year

(+) Steve Slaton hasn’t left the doghouse in two years while Ben Tate is coming off season-ending ankle surgery

(+) Overcame the stigma of having “fumble-itis” and only turned the ball over twice last season in 392 touches

(–) After having one of the most unlikely seasons in recent past, Arian will have a bull’s-eye on his back throughout 2011

(–) Despite his obvious high-end skills, Foster likely hit his ceiling in 2010, so don’t expect the same type of production two years in a row

It’s a bit of a tough call as to who will emerge as the primary backup in Houston this year, but we're betting on Ben Tate winning the job over Derrick Ward.

Injury Report


Foster revealed that he played the entire 2010 season with a torn meniscus in his knee, yet kept the injury hidden from the team.

The Positive: He had no trouble at all throughout the season despite the injury.

The Negative: Well, he DID have a torn meniscus.

The Conclusion: No worries. He had surgery on it in February and should be fine heading into 2011

Arian Foster Signs With Dolphins

Arian Foster

Pyro's take: Arian Foster has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins. (Ian Rapoport on twitter)

Fantasy Goo: It is still unclear what role Foster will have. If Arian can get back to full strength, expect him to be the start with Jay Ajayi as his complement. This lessens the value of both Ajayi and Drake. This move hurts the "sleeper" potential for Kenyan Drake. Depending on health, Foster will be an intriguing pick come draft day. This signing should come as no surprise as Miami has shown the most interest in him since day one.

Arian Foster Returns To Miami For Work Out With Dolphins

Adam Schefter

Pyro's take: Adam Schefter reports that free agent RB Arian Foster is scheduled to work out with the Miami Dolphins on Monday. The Dolphins are looking for another RB to go with second year RB Jay Ajayi and rookie RB Kenyan Drake. Foster has played his entire seven year career with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Goo: When healthy, Foster is one of the most talented RBs in the NFL. The problem is, Foster is rarely healthy. Since becoming the Texans starting RB in 2010, Foster has only played all 16 games in a season twice (2010 and 2012). Foster would also split carries on the Dolphins with Ajayi and Drake.Miami has shown the most interest in the free agent running back to this point in the offseason.

Arian Foster came to Boston for the weekend.

Pyro's take: Arian Foster came to Boston for the weekend. Boston lost its mind a little bit. Agents chumming the water by saying teams are interested in their unemployed clients is a frequent occurrence. Whether Foster was in town for business of pleasure, he is a free agent running back. The Patriots could use a running back and they have – historically – shown interest in signing experienced, aging backs and seeing what they can do.

Fantasy Goo: Sometimes we want to believe in something. We love heroes. I do not believe Arian Foster is the player he was. Personally, last season I drafted Foster and waited patiently just to watch him play in four games and average 2.6 yards per carry. I also watched Arian Foster live when he tore his Achilles. Foster was not evading a tackler. The ball was snapped; Arian jogged towards the line of scrimmage and simply fell. Instantly I was worried and sure enough his season was done after a non-contact injury to an already highly injury prone player. If he signs with an elite team like the Patriots I might risk it again. I want to believe in Arian only in the RIGHT situation such as in New England.

Ajayi need not worry about Arian Foster

The Dolphins aren’t pursuing Houston free agent running back Arian Foster, who visited Dolphins headquarters earlier this spring, but they will consider him if they have an injury or if their young backs falter. Foster is still working his way back from a torn Achilles sustained Oct. 25.

Foster is still working his way back from a torn Achilles sustained Oct. 25.

Fantasy Goo: This is good news for Ajayi, as a Foster signing would indicate a major loss in touches. This is also a boost for the young back as the organization has displayed their full confidence in him taking the step forward to lead back for the team in 2016.

Foster a Weather Vein for Lewis Love

Foster and Lewis

Pyro's take: I have been trading emails with David-Te Thomas, long time NFL scout. He believes Wild Billy B really likes Dion Lewis. Thomas stated that if the team takes Arian Foster, it means there are concerns for Lewis. However, Thomas seems to think Bill Belichick is trying to send the Patriots brass a message: Namely, our guy is Lewis.

Lewis was able to score a TD and/or rack up 100 all-purpose yards in 5 of 7 games played last season before going down with an injury. He has been more injured than not since coming into the league 2011 and there in lies the concern. If healthy, he could be a huge difference maker on your roster.

Arian Foster is a week away from passing a physical

Free agent running back

Pyro's take: Free agent running back Arian Foster (Achilles) is a week or two away from being able to pass a physical, after which his market will start to heat up. (Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

Foster should have no problem finding a team once he is healthy enough to pass his physical, and rumors have already linked him to the Dolphins,Patriots and Seahawks. Regardless of where he goes, however, Foster is unlikely to ever be a featured back again and would be best served as part of a committee to keep him healthy and fresh. The only question is for which team will he be on in 2016.

Arian Foster (Achilles') has been cleared for "light jogging."


Pyro's take: "Today you start some light jogging," says the man wearing a Houston Methodist Hospital coat. "No pivoting, cutting, explosive activity. Strengthen all you want. Do your heel lift, elliptical, bike, jog. Surf. Maybe not surf."

"Cleared to jog ... back against the wall once again," wrote Foster on the post. "I live for s--- like this!!!! f--- "they", we out here dreamin!"

Arian Foster rushed 19 times for 41 yards and also caught 9-of-10 targets for an additional 77 yards.


Pyro's take: Arian Foster didnt have the greatest rushing game against the Indianapolis Colts, but he dominated in the air. Basically, he stunk for standard leagues but was a delight in PPR. He did get over 100-yards of total offense, so at least he didnt put up a goose-egg.

He was evaluated for a concussion after a huge second quarter hit, and appeared to be operating without his typical burst. This can all be related to the long lay-off, the more he plays the more dominant he is going to be.

Arian Foster to have an increased role in Thursday night's game


Pyro's take: He has had his one game under his belt and will be ready to rumble against the Colts. This obviously is good news for Arians owners and should open up for DeAndre Hopkins and the other receivers.

Foster set to Play in Week#4

foster plays

Pyro's take: It is being reported that Arian Foster will make his 2015 debut today in Week #4. It is a choice matchup agaisnt Atlanta. In Pyro's PPR scoring, Atlanta is giving up an average of over 44 FF Pts to opposing RBs. The second highest team is allowing over 32 FF Pts per game. Ian Rapoport's source says he will be on a snap count, and then will be full go in Week #5 in which they have a Thursday game.

Texans will let Arian Foster (questionable, groin) decide if he can play this week.


Pyro's take: According to John McClain via twitter "I believe Arian Foster will play if he can convince OBrien he's ready. OB trusts that Foster knows his body and will be honest bout it."

I dont buy this for a minute, but I have been wrong before. The Texans have a game Thursday Night against the Colts, so that is prohibitive as well.

IF for some reason the coaches feel he is good enough to play, roll with him.

Arian Foster Texans running back Arian Foster was a limited participant in today's practice


Pyro's take: According to ESPN reporter Tania Ganguli "Bill O'Brien said Foster's status will be decided the night before the game or 90 minutes prior, when the Texans must announce inactives."

Im doubting a return this week, but make sure he is out before making a decision. He could make a nice Flex play in PPR leagues.

Arian Foster may not return till week 5


Pyro's take: Arian Foster may not be able to return until week 5 according to the Houston Texans. Beat writer John McClain tweeted out

"Foster will miss his 2nd game Sunday. He has to practice a couple of weeks before he can play. I still think he'll miss 4 and return 4 Colts"

Groin Day-to-Day

Drew Dougherty has reported that Arian Foster "O'Brien: Arian Foster (groin injury) is "day-to-day"

Pyro's take: Arian Foster at this time looks like a no-go this Sunday. If you have Alfred Blue make sure you get him ready.

Practices but Out?

Tania Ganguli ESPN writer for the Houston Texans, has stated via twitter "O'Brien says Arian Foster practiced a little bit today. Says that'll be a gameday decision."

Pyro's take: Multiple reports surfaced Friday that Foster will be out against Cleveland, giving Alfred Blue the start. "Right now it does not look promising," Adam Schefter said of Foster's potential availability. "Signs not encouraging." Schefter expects a "heavy dose" of Alfred Blue against the Browns.

This is confusing as it gets, but I gotta trust what reports are saying, and that he is out, and this really is not a game time decision. But in safety make sure he is out for certain.

Game Time

It appears that Arian Foster will be a game time decision according to Texans tv host Drew Daugherty "O'Brien: Arian Foster is definitely a game-time decision, and we'll work him out before the game."

Pyro's take: Keep a hold on to Foster and make sure he plays before officially putting him in your lineup, if he cannot go, expect Alfred Blue to step up in his place.

Won't Miss Time?

Arian Foster looks as though he won't miss anytime. The Texans have their bye-week and Ian Rapoport stated that "unlikely to miss any time with the groin injury he suffered Sunday against the Eagles because of the team's extended break, per a source informed of his injury." Also, Foster "bypassed additional medical testing and simply needs rest above anything else. The Texans don't play the Browns for another 13 days, which should help Foster get back on the field."

Pyro's take: This would save the Texans a huge misfortune if Foster can go in two weeks. Alfred Blue looks to be a good candidate as a rookie, but he is untested, and with the balance of playoffs up for grabs, Houston does not want to rely on a rookie to get the job done.

Arian Brotherhood

Arian Foster and the Houston Texans had a great game, as the offense line blocked well for him, and Foster used that for his big run-day. It was a combination of Andre Johnson, JJ Watt, and Arian Foster that helped the Texans escape a 23-0 first quarter deficit and lose by less than seven points.

Pyro's take: On the game Foster carried the ball for 20 times for 109 yards and scored twice, and caught 3 passes for 32 yards, and danced his way through large gaping holes for him to cut-through and eventually make it into the end zone. Even though Alfred Blue got some carries, it wasn't enough, but to give Foster some breathing treatments.

Foster should continue to be a high number two. or even a low number one.
