Summary

An injury plagued 2013 season left people wondering how Arian Foster would rebound in 2014. The Texans offense had question marks, including Foster's own health. With his legacy in the balance, Foster quieted critics and rose to the occasion with a strong season that saw him finish in the Top 5 among fantasy running backs. The offseason came and the Texans were strong candidates to use a high draft pick on a talented, young running back, but it never happened. Outside of Foster, the 2015 Texans running game will include last year's surprising rookie, Alfred Blue, the newly signed Chris Polk and veteran Jonathan Grimes. The Texans coaching staff has indicated that Foster's role will be diminished this year, which would undoubtedly have a least some negative effect on his fantasy value. Foster has a history of leg, hamstring and calf injuries which can pop up without notice, especially on a player with as much wear and tear as him. In the last five years, Foster has amassed over 1,500 touches. He has the talent, drive and experience to be a weekly fantasy standout, but can he make it last the entire year? He is expected to be a key piece of the offense, but there is definitely risk involved in making him your top back in 2015. (May 15)
