2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


The Dolphins added Arian Foster in mid-July, which takes out one of the upside legs of Jay Ajayi. Last season Foster tore his right Achilles in late October. Typically, it takes about a year to recover fully from this type of injury. Arian will have an uphill battle to regain his explosiveness, and the summer reports may pump more life into his upside. Anytime a football player doesn't have a full summer of training camp; he adds injury risk to his season. Foster has missed 23 games over the last three years. Last season he struggled in the run game (2.6 yards per rush) while flashing his upside as a receiver (10.3 yards per catch). I have to respect his ability and possible upside, but it is important to temper our expectations. I'm going to project Arian to play ten games with a couple of those games having limited snaps. If/when he regains his bounce in his step; Foster should take over as the lead RB in this offense. He has plenty of risk so I would be careful not to overpay for a bumpy ride in 2016. I'll set his bar at about 150 touches for 750+ combined yards and six TDs.

10.03 Evan Silva - I expect Foster to be signed by a team that plans to start him.

12.04 Gridiron Experts - Jody Smith - I almost nabbed Foster in Round 10, then gambled that he'd slide to me again here. That gamble paid off. I think Foster still has plenty left in the tank and could still be up RB1/2 numbers. Now he just needs a job.

5.04 Scout Fantasy - Corey Parson - Yeah I know we have been down this road before, but he looks great in camp, and he will be the guy and generate fantasy points while on the field.
