Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. We have seen no indication that Foster will miss Week 3, but this is a good time to pick up his handcuff, rookie Alfred Blue.

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Foster has been getting a huge workload, and so far he has held up. Alfred Blue is now his backup, and is a recommended handcuff for Foster in all formats.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (hamstring) won't play in Week 3

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Despite some signs of progress last week, and the fact that Odell Beckham was one of the first people on the practice field today, the team's 2014 first-round pick is still a long way from seeing game snaps.

Tom Coughlin said Beckham won't significantly deviate from his practice routine this week, which means there's a zero percent chance he's seen on Sunday against the Texans. Before the season opener, Coughlin said that Beckham (hamstring) could be out "another three or four weeks," which led to some hope that Beckham may start working his way back this week.

That is not the case.

Fantasy Impact:

With Jerrel Jernigan out for the year, Preston Parker and Corey Washington will keep Beckham's spot in the lineup warm until his hamstring fully heals. Washington seems to have more upside, but Parker played ahead of him in Week 2.

Texans could split up RB carries

Monday, September 15, 2014, 6:22pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Texans running back Arian Foster has 55 carries already this season -- the highest total any running back has had since 2006.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien steadfastly maintains the team will give Foster as many carries as is necessary for the team to win, whether that's 10 carries a game or 35. On Monday he admitted the Texans will probably spread out carries among the rest of the Texans' running backs later in the season.

"Certainly when you look at one player getting a ton of carries, that’s something that you have to pay attention to as a staff," O'Brien said. "We do that. But also we do what’s necessary to win a game."

Fantasy Impact:

It's easy to say, but it's another thing for the Texans to do it. There's not a ton of experience behind Foster once the team released Andre Brown. Alfred Blue had a 11 carries and Jonathan Grimes had three, but this game became a blowout. Even Ronnie Brown had three carries. In Week 1, when the Texans were in a close game with Washington, Foster carried 27 times while Grimes and Blue had only one carry each. With an injury history like Foster's, it's probably a good idea to cut back a little on his workload to keep him healthy for the long haul.
