Arian Foster had no issues with his knee against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster had 26 rushes with 79 yards and 2 touchdowns, and caught one pass for -4 yards as the Texans routed the Miami Dolphins 30-10 Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Foster did not appear to be hampered by the knee injury that held him out practice earlier in the week. Despite only 3 yards per carry, he paced Houston's offense with two running scores in the 2nd quarter, and was mostly used to kill the clock as the Dolphins never came close. Backup Ben Tate was not needed as a handcuff, with only 4 carries. Foster is an easy start in Week 2 against the Jaguars.
