Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said RB Arian Foster would fill the roles that RBs Kevin Faulk and Danny Woodhead did with the New England Patriots.
A few weeks ago we learned that Foster would be used out of the backfield more under the O'Brien regime. He clarified Foster's role today, implying through Faulk and Woodhead that Foster would not need a replacement on third-downs. Foster has shouldered a massive workload over the last few years, so it's hard to know whether or not this helps or hurts his fantasy value. In the short-term, it probably helps. ANALYST:
