Summary

The Texans lost running back Ben Tate to the Cleveland Browns in free agency and his replacement is the newly acquired Andre Brown. Arian Foster is returning from a back injury that forced him out of action after week nine last year. Foster is expected to be the team's leading rushing threat, with Brown getting reps in relief. It took Brown a few years, a few teams and several injury recoveries to finally latch on in the league, but he proved that he can be an effective rushing threat after two good seasons with the Giants. Brown gives the Texans running game a powerful, but surprisingly agile option for his size. His fantasy value primarily lies as a handcuff to Foster and if he does get a chance to see increased snaps, he is capable of being a threat as a rusher and someone who can punch the ball into the end zone when called upon.
