The Houston Texans will be without RB Arian Foster this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. Interim head coach Wade Phillips announced that Foster will take the day off to rest his back and hamstring. With Foster on the sideline for the game, the Texans will lean on Ben Tate to take the load at running back.
Arian Foster has not been able to join the team in practice this week. Tate looks like a good option for your lineups in fantasy football. He will get the ball a ton and should be able to give you some good points for your fantasy team.
The Texans did well moving the ball last week with Case Keenum throwing the rock over to Andre Johnson the whole game. Keenum will likely be looking in his direction a lot again. It seemed to be something the team wanted to get done last week. They wanted to get Johnson the ball down in the red zone. Tate should get some opportunities to run it in from the red zone.
