Arian Foster, Ben Tate Fantasy Recap: Texans Running Backs Roll Over Titans

The Houston Texans demolished the Tennessee Titans on Sunday and they have their two running backs to thank in part for the victory. Arian Foster put together a masterful performance of 115 rushing yards and 112 receiving yards, to go along with three total touchdowns. Foster struggled early in the year with a hamstring injury but appears to be back at 100%. While the Texans have struggled at times without Andre Johnson, Foster has taken the lead for the team and put them on his back.

Ben Tate benefited from the blowout as well, finishing the game with 104 yards on 15 carries. He remains a useful handcuff alongside Foster, but is not one you would normally expect to start. He had a big game on Sunday, but the odds are slim of that happening on a frequent basis while Foster is healthy.

The Texans host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday. Andre Johnson is getting closer to coming back, but there is no word yet on his availability for next Sunday. If Johnson returns, it would cut into Foster's receiving numbers a bit, but could be a boon for his rushing opportunities.

Jared Cook Fantasy: Titans TE Scores Touchdown

Jared Cook did not necessarily have a great day for the Tennessee Titans, but he did score their only touchdown on Sunday. Cook was held to just one other catch and only had 22 yards, but touchdowns from tight ends are like fantasy gold. In context of Cook's season, this really wasn't a bad game at all.

Cook was averaging 42 receiving yards a game with 208 receiving yards on the season and 1 touchdown through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Cook's receiving yards per game are up nearly 20 yards per game from last season.

Cook was ranked by Yahoo! as the 15th ranked tight end heading into Week 7 taking on the Houston Texans.

Owen Daniels Fantasy: Texans TE Turns In Another Solid Performance

Owen Daniels had another workmanlike performance for the Houston Texans, catching four passes for 74 yards in a victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Daniels was held out of the endzone, which keeps it from being a huge fantasy performance by tight end standards, but it's hard to complain about those numbers.

Daniels was averaging 47 receiving yards a game with 284 passing yards on the season and 3 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Daniels' receiving yards per game are up nearly 5 yards per game from last season.

Daniels was ranked by Yahoo! as the 5th ranked tight end heading into Week 7 taking on the Tennessee Titans who rank 12th against the pass.

Matt Schaub Fantasy: Texans Quarterback Having Nice Bounce Back Game

Matt Schaub has had a bit of a roller-coaster season so far this year. On Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, he was back on the rise. The Houston Texans quarterback finished with 296 yards and two touchdowns while completing 18 of 23 passes. One of those touchdowns was a 78-yarder to running back Arian Foster.

Schaub was averaging 266 passing yards a game with 1,597 passing yards on the season and 10 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Schaub's passing yards per game is down nearly 10 yards per game from last season.

Schaub was ranked by Yahoo! as the 15th ranked quarterback heading into Week 7 taking on the Tennessee Titans who rank 12th against the pass.

Arian Foster Fantasy: Texans RB Having Huge Afternoon

Hopefully, Arian Foster's start did not sour you on starting him this week. The Houston Texans running back became the first running back in two years to register more than a 100 yards both rushing and receiving. He finished with 115 yards rushing and 119 yards receiving, that includes a 78-yard touchdown catch from Matt Schaub. He rushed for a pair of TDs as well.

Foster's had a bumpy start to the 2011 NFL season, dealing with a hamstring injury that has lingered since the preseason and a Texans offense that has lost some of its balance since Andre Johnson's injury. But Foster's also turned in two monster games: he gutted the once-mighty Steelers run defense for 155 yards and a touchdown, and had 184 combined yards rushing and receiving in Houston's loss to Oakland.

With more play like those two games, Foster could re-establish himself as a premium fantasy option.

Andre Johnson Injury Update: Texans WR Still Out With Hamstring

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has officially been ruled out of today's match up with the Tennessee Titans, as expected. Johnson suffered a hamstring injury a few weeks ago and had surgery to remove some scar tissue from the area, in hopes to expedite the healing process. The Texans had hoped Johnson would be able to get some practice reps in this week to get ready for a possible Week 8 return, but he was not able to.

In Johnson's absence, Jacoby Jones will once again start out wide opposite Kevin Walter with newly acquired Derrick Mason in the slot. The Titans defense ranks Top 12 in the NFL and Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has been nursing a shoulder injury.
