Arian Foster (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arian Foster is active for Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and the Miami Dolphins, according to reports. Foster was considered a game-time decision after injuring his knee late in this week during practice. There is no word whether or not he will be limited.

Analysis: Against a weak Miami run defense, Foster still has to be considered a must-start despite his potentially gimpy knee. Even if he is held to just 15 touches, he is still expected to be productive behind an excellent offensive line. Ben Tate may a viable option as well, especially if the Texans take a significant lead and have the opportunity to give Foster some rest.
