Arian Foster to be used more as a receiver

My Fox Houston - [Full Article]

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is thrilled with the new offensive system head coach Bill O'Brien has brought to the franchise.

"So far I really love it," Foster said. "It's very versatile.

"Coach O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield. That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."

"They have a lot of zone schemes, runs, every offense does," Foster said. "The way they want to use me out of the backfield as far as different alignments and matchups they want to have against linebackers and things like that."

Fantasy Impact: 

Foster's reception total has dropped in each of the last three seasons, from a career high 66 in 2010 to just 22 in his injury-shortened 2013 campaign. It sounds as HC Bill O'Brien wants to get him more involved in that aspect of the offense.
