2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-10-2015 by Shawn Childs

Foster continues to be an injury risk, and that tag won't go away with him turning 29 in late August. After being discounted in 2014 drafts, Arian delivered a top-five Fantasy RB season despite missing three games and carrying the ball 13 times combined in two other games. He battled hamstring, knee, groin and hip issues. He had seven 100-yard rushing games and nine outings with 15 or more Fantasy points in FFWC scoring. Compared to previous seasons, Foster wasn't used as much in the passing game, but his skill set remains very good in this area as he caught 38 passes for 327 yards and five scores. In four of his past five seasons, Arian has touched the ball at least 298 times. His success last year couldn't be defined better than by comparing his yards per carry average (4.8) to the rest of Houston's RB options (3.2). In his 11 full games, Foster averaged 25.3 touches per game. He is one of the most productive players in the sport when he's on the field. His draft stock really depends on how people weigh his risk versus his reward. Foster's handcuff will be cheap, but as stated above, those players failed to have much of any impact value last year. As much as I like Foster as a player, I can't see him being on the field when I need him during the Fantasy playoffs. My advice would be to avoid the risk and find another impact RB who actually has age on his side.

2.09 Fantasy Taz - Foster has a great shot at comeback player of the year. Team is already talking about throwing to him more and with many questions at QB, he should get at least 20 touches a game. Most are already writing Foster off, but he is only 27 and I look for a strong bounce-back year for him.
