Arian Foster racks up yards to pay off for fantasy owners

Scott Halleran

Arian Foster posted his highest rushing total of the season on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arian Foster rushed for 165 yards on 27 carries against the Colts in Week 15. He finished with his highest yardage total so far in 2012, averaging 6.1 yards per carry on the afternoon.

Foster scored a 27-yard touchdown in the second half, but it was taken off the board after a holding call brought the ball back.

Fantasy Impact: Owners surely would have liked to see Foster find the end zone for the fourth week in a row, but 165 yards isn't anything to scoff at. The Texans relied on their No. 1 back throughout the afternoon, and he did not disappoint.

He'll face a tough matchup with the Vikings defense next week. Foster is obviously a must-start, though, regardless of his opponent.
