Arian Foster, RB, Houston Texans

Up and down, up and down. That’s the way Arian Foster’s 2015 season has gone in terms of fantasy football. To begin draft season back in early August, Foster’s ADP was anywhere from 7-14. Two weeks later, Foster was going undrafted in some leagues.

  • Now, as we’re less than one week away from the regular season, some recent news out of Texans camp has put Arian’s ADP back on the rise.

    Originally, it was thought that the team would be placing Foster on short-term IR. Then as recent as a few days ago, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that Foster’s return could happen as soon as week three when the Texans battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    The fact that Foster could now be back potentially six weeks sooner that expected, makes his ADP go way up. If you decided to take a Foster, make sure it’s at a good value. I would be comfortable in the fifth round. Another A-1 idea? Look up Foster’s cuff too — Alfred Blue.
