Arian Foster produces for fantasy owners vs. Bears despite bad weather

David Banks

Arian Foster had 29 carries for 102 yards rushing and five receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown during the Texans' win over the Bears on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arian Foster rushed for 102 yards on 29 carries during the Houston Texans' win over the Chicago Bears in a rainy game Sunday night. Foster also had five receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Foster still has yet to go a game this season without scoring a touchdown. He has racked up over 100 yards of total offense in six of the nine games that the Texans have played this season. With Ben Tate out, Justin Forsett was Houston's next leading rusher with four carries for 27 yards on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Foster was terrific yet again for fantasy owners, carving up a Bears defense that had been giving up just 3.6 yards per carry on the season (though Foster's performance technically helped that average). He didn't put up a ton of yards in the receiving game, but five receptions is more than enough for owners in PPR leagues.

Foster remains a must-start going forward. With Tate sidelined, the coaching staff is somehow relying on Foster even more heavily than normal. Even if Tate does return next week, you shouldn't think twice about playing Foster.
