Arian Foster injury update: Set to start for fantasy owners Sunday

Jeff Gross

Arian Foster's calf injury allowed him to practice fully all week and he will start on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (calf) was listed as a full participant in practice all week and will start as usual when the Texans take on the Tennessee Titans in their home opener on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Earlier this week, Foster complained about the role he played in the Texans' Week 1 win over the San Diego Chargers, even though he received over 70 percent of the touches over teammate Ben Tate. Head coach Gary Kubiak seems unfazed by his star's frustration and has stated on multiple occasions over the last week that he'd like to see Foster and Tate split touches more evenly going forward. With all signs pointing to Foster's value decreasing, his time as a top three fantasy running back may be ending faster than his owners might have thought coming into the season.
