Quick fantasy outlook: Arian Foster is one of the best all-around running backs in the league. He has finished in the Top 4 each of the past three years, reaching a minimum of 1,200 yards rushing and 12 total touchdowns in each year of that span. He will likely be a another high draft selection in many redraft leagues this year. If there is a down side to Foster this season, he is coming off 351 carries and 40 additional receptions. He was worked awfully hard in 2012, mostly because his backup Ben Tate suffered injuries and was unavailable to help ease the load. The 2013 season will feature Foster, but Tate will also be a contributor in the backfield, which could limit his production. Foster recently suffered a calf strain injury in OTAs, which kept him sidelined through most of camp. He has not played a snap in the preseason and could be limited, if not held back for the first few weeks of the regular season. He has bounced back after preseason injuries in the past, but the wear and tear is building up. His status for week one is very much in question after his back recently flared up, also causing pain in his legs. The latest uncertainty surrounding Foster could result in him being knocked out of the first round in redraft leagues. The season hasn't even begun and Foster is already an injury risk.
