Texans RB Arian Foster will be a game-time call in Week 4

CSN Houston - [Full Article]

Texans running back Arian Foster is still “day-to-day” three days after missing the team’s Week 3 matchup against the Giants.

Foster is dealing with a hamstring injury, which he talked about on Monday.

Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said the team will work Foster out Sunday before the game.

Fantasy Impact:

We learned in Week 3 that Alfred Blue will get the vast majority of carries with Foster sidelined, so we would expect that to be the case again in Week 4, if Foster can't play.

Raiders have 'confidence' in WR Andre Holmes

ESPN - [Full Article]

With Rod Streater out with a fractured foot, the next Oakland Raiders receiver in the rotation will probably be Andre Holmes.

Oakland coach Dennis Allen said the 6-foot-4 Holmes is an intriguing prospect. He had five catches for 45 yards against the Houston Texans and made a beautiful 29-yard catch at the New England Patriots after Streater was hurt.

The Raiders need more reliable receivers and perhaps Holmes will get his chance.

"We've got confidence that Andre, when we put him in the game, will go out and make some plays for us," Allen said. "He made a couple plays for us in the game the other day. He drew the pass interference penalty and had a big catch down in the boundary. Those are some of the things that Andre did for us last year and we feel like he can bring some of those things for us this year."

Fantasy Impact:

James Jones is locked in as a starter and Denarius Moore played more snaps in the last two weeks, with Streater limited. Holmes saw a significant amount of playing time, however, and Moore had a drop that led to the game-ending interception by the Patriots in Week 3. Holmes may get a chance to play ahead of Moore, but even if he's the WR3, he has a chance to emerge as the WR2. He performed well in starter’s snaps over the final six games of the 2013 season, averaging 4.0-66-.17 (WR3-type numbers) in that span.

Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. He should be fine to face the Bills this week. It’s a good sign that he’s even limited on a Wednesday.

Bills WR Robert Woods (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. Woods should be fine to face the Texans.

Arian Foster says he's day-to-day with hamstring issue

Monday, September 22, 2014, 1:44pm

HoustonTexans.com - [Full Article]

Texans RB Arian Foster was inactive against the New York Giants on Sunday, and gave an injury update on Monday morning.

The Texans running back said he's still "day-to-day" with a hamstring injury that kept him from playing in the Week 3 loss. Foster was listed on the injury report last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as "limited" because of a hamstring injury.

He worked out prior to the game at MetLife Stadium, but was unable to play. He said his hamstring felt "good" on Sunday, but not good enough to suit up against the Giants.

Foster's carried the ball 55 times for 241 yards and a touchdown this season.

Fantasy Impact:

The injury comes in the same week the Texans said they wanted to get other RBs involved to keep Foster healthy after he had another big workload in Week 2. In his place against New York, rookie Alfred Blue started and picked up 78 yards on 13 rushing attempts. He broke loose for a 46-yarder in the third quarter. Blue would likely see a lot of work in a good matchup with the Bills should Foster not be able to play this week.

Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:09pm

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 3. Foster is expected to play, but Alfred Blue ran ahead of Jonathan Grimes in Week 2, so he would presumably take over as the Texans' RB2 if Foster is unable to play. The Texans play early on Sunday.

Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:09pm

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 3. Hopkins is ready to go for the Giants. Thanks to a couple of touchdown receptions, Hopkins is the #19 WR in PPR formats thus far.
