Pats Beat: Team to explore adding RB

ESPN - [Full Article]

One wild card in the Patriots running back situation remains undrafted D.J. Foster of Arizona State, who hasn't played in the preseason because of an undisclosed injury but appeared to increase his practice workload on Monday.

Foster was a priority free-agent signing whose $30,000 in guaranteed money was second highest among the team's undrafted players. He fits into the "passing back" mold of Lewis and top replacement, James White.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story mentioned Fred Jackson and Roy Helu but they fall more into the passing back category. The story also said the Titans could be a trade partner as they are deep with RBs DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry and Bishop Shankey. We had a story Monday that said Ronnie Hillman may not make the Broncos. The Pats could just be waiting for the next round of cuts, but they appear likely to add to the position and that player could have some fantasy relevance.
