Description: Texans running back Arian Foster just missed the 100-yard rushing bonus versus the Colts.
Insight: Foster had 99 rushing yards on 26 carries. He had plenty of opportunities with starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick leaving the game with a leg injury. Foster is still a RB1 no matter who plays quarterback for Houston.

11/30/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster is active for Week 13 against the Titans.

11/26/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) has a good chance to play, according to coach Bill O'Brien.

Description: Texans running back Arian Foster may be a game-time decision, but according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain, he'd be surprised if Foster plays in Week 12.
Insight: McClain is usually pretty good an analyzing the situation in Houston so fantasy owners better have an alternate plan in place. Foster is a RB1 if he plays, and Alfred Blue, his backup, is a decent RB2.
 
11/20/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: Texans coach Bill O'Brien is calling Arian Foster a game-time decision according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: O'Brien said the same thing last week, and Foster came no where close to playing. His chances seem better for Week 12, but keep Alfred Blue stashed just in case. Foster is a RB1 if he plays, and Blue is a decent RB2.

Insight: While he looked likely to play early in the week, that optimism has dipped over the last day or so. Still, we have no official word on the subject other than he'll be a "game-time" decision. Alfred Blue needs to be owned in all leagues, as he will have RB2 potential, if Foster sits.
