Teammates say Arian Foster feeling great

ESPN - [Full Article]

Texans RB Arian Foster now is apparently feeling great. His media boycott has lasted throughout organized team activities and both of the Texans' minicamps, so we haven't heard directly from him, but his teammates say that's what he's saying.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien plans to use him in diverse ways, and during a (likely paid) appearance at a bowling alley, Foster told reporters he was excited about that.

You have to wonder, though, is this going to last?

Fantasy Impact: 

Talk is RBs tend to start heading downhill at age 27, which is what Foster is until he turns 28 in August. This decline can manifest itself in a lot of ways - sometimes it's pure wear and tear, sometimes it's the result of the body's declining ability to recover from injuries, the story points out. Either way, Foster is a high-risk, high-reward selection this year for fantasy owners. Andre Brown, the former Giant, will back him up and is probably a good add if you end up with Foster. We rank Foster 11th among our RBs heading into drafts.
