Arian Foster found the end zone twice to salvage a poor running day. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Texans fell behind early to the Packers on Sunday night, so the ground game was eventually phased out of their plans for the most part. Arian Foster ran the ball 17 times for a mere 29 yards, but he managed to score twice to make the most of his playing time.

Foster was expected to rack up the yards again facing a relatively weaker run defense, but Green Bay kept him at bay, aside from he goal line carries.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to complain when he still scores two touchdowns. Foster's owners are probably a bit disappointed with the lackluster yardage numbers, but he proved he can be a top performer no matter what the situation.

The Texans face the Ravens in Week 7, and given the fact that Baltimore is struggling mightily against the run lately, Foster should be in for a big bounce back. Expect a strong showing from him.
