Houston Texans running back Arian Foster looked sharp against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. He carried the ball eight times for 32 yards and a touchdown. Foster had a long run of 18 yards, finding his lanes and optimizing runs against the Saints defense.
Analysis: Foster is the consensus No. 1 pick in the majority of fantasy football leagues. As a runner, Foster has perhaps the best vision of any back in the NFL, and is one of the smoothest runners in and out of his cuts. The Texans as a team are expected to have a lot of success in 2012 and Foster could be at the center of it. He accounts for a lot of all-purpose yards, gathering fantasy points from all over. His performance against the Saints is just reassurance that he will be a dominant player this coming season.
