Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs PIT (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Foster made his return from a hamstring injury on Sunday, but he was not a factor due to the emergence of Jay Ajayi. Foster did not get many opportunities, rushing only three times for three yards, while catching two passes for 12 yards. He looked like a player who was still trying to shake the rust off after missing four consecutive weeks of play, and it will be very interesting to see how Miami divides touches between their backfield moving forward.

2016 Week 2 vs NE (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Foster came up limp with a hamstring injury after only his third carry in the game. While the injury is not considered serious, it does highlight the risk the Dolphins took when acquiring a veteran with an injury riddled past.

2016 Week 1 vs SEA (13 / 38 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 62 / 0 rec)

Foster did not set the world on fire, but is veteran presence was evident as he showed little frustration despite the tough going against the Seahawks D. After a few carries with nowhere to go, the field finally opened up for Foster on a screen pass and he expertly shed a couple of tackles down the sideline for a fifty yard gain. He took another screen pass late in the game, down to the 2 yard line (and then lost out on the short yardage play to Tannehill's draw play). Overall, Foster had his ups and downs while making good reads throughout. Late in the game, he seemed strong and was helping to move the chains moreso than in the early going.


Latest News

Dolphins | Arian Foster will play (Sun Oct 23, 12:19 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game.

Our View: Foster should still take a backseat to Jay Ajayi and be used mainly in the passing game. He's on the fringe of rosterable in typical leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster listed as questionable (Fri Oct 21, 04:49 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Our View: Jay Ajayi should lead this backfield as long as he doesn't end back in doghouse like he was at the beginning of the season. Foster is only worth carrying in deep PPR leagues.

Dolphins | Arian Foster full go (Thu Oct 20, 06:49 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

Our View: Foster returns to a full-blown RBBC situation, with Jay Ajayi coming off a huge game. We have no idea how Foster fits in, and as it stands don't see him as much more than an RB5 unless Ajayi's production takes faceplant.

Dolphins | Arian Foster not at full health (Mon Oct 17, 03:20 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is still not at 100 percent, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase did say that Foster 'still brings something to the table,' however.

Our View: With Foster still banged up, it was Jay Ajayi who shined against the Steelers on Sunday. The Dolphins seemed to have the right O-Line combination (finally) after going through six different versions up front. We'll see if Foster cuts into Ajayi's workload as the veteran gets healthier, and we'll see if the Dolphins can continue to run the ball better going forward.
