Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to play in Week 1 but the team is expected to test him in the pregame. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (knee) is expected to play on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. However, he says the team wants to test Foster in the pregame. Foster is listed as questionable for the Texans heading into Sunday's game with the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: It sounds like Foster will get every chance to play on Sunday against Miami. Even if he's not 100 percent, Foster is still a Top 10 running back this week. There is a chance that Ben Tate gets more carries than usual but those who drafted Foster likely have to start him and hope for the best.
