Arian Foster Fantasy: Texans RB Having Huge Afternoon

Hopefully, Arian Foster's start did not sour you on starting him this week. The Houston Texans running back became the first running back in two years to register more than a 100 yards both rushing and receiving. He finished with 115 yards rushing and 119 yards receiving, that includes a 78-yard touchdown catch from Matt Schaub. He rushed for a pair of TDs as well.

Foster's had a bumpy start to the 2011 NFL season, dealing with a hamstring injury that has lingered since the preseason and a Texans offense that has lost some of its balance since Andre Johnson's injury. But Foster's also turned in two monster games: he gutted the once-mighty Steelers run defense for 155 yards and a touchdown, and had 184 combined yards rushing and receiving in Houston's loss to Oakland.

With more play like those two games, Foster could re-establish himself as a premium fantasy option.
