Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to start this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fantasy football owners can now take a collective sigh of relief as their likely top 5 draft selection is finally ready to go. "He's fine," Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said about Foster. "He should be OK heading into the rest of the season now, hopefully. We'll keep our fingers crossed. He's chomping at the bit and ready to go, took his full load and we're okay."
Foster has only played in one game this season and he was ineffective, rushing for just 33 yards on 10 carries. In that single game, he re-aggravated his injury causing him to miss more time. As it stands however, Foster is a full go, expected to start, and get the lion share of carries. Even though Foster is going against the Steelers defense, they've been run on this season so don't be afraid to put him in your line up.
