Arian Foster expected back for fantasy owners in Week 17

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans don't seem worried about Arian Foster's chances of playing next week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arian Foster left Sunday's game against the Vikings after dealing with an irregular heartbeat. Gary Kubiak said afterwards the Texans were running tests on their star running back, but everything appeared to be fine.

Kubiak also noted he expects Foster to be back in action for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Week 16 was not a kind one to Foster. He rushed for just 15 yards on 10 carries, and then was forced out of the game due to his heart issue. Houston continues to label it a minor situation, so owners shouldn't be too worried about his chances of playing next week.

The Texans wrap up the regular season on the road against the Colts. Foster rushed for 165 yards against Indy two weeks ago. Keep starting him barring a major setback.
