Tweaked hamstring for Houston RB Arian Foster

Nick Scurfield on Twitter - [Full Article]

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said running back Arian Foster "tweaked his hamstring" during Saturday's game in San Francisco against the 49ers.

"We have 15 days, so we’ll just keep our fingers crossed that he recovers," Kubiak said. "We don’t think it’s anything worse than what we were dealing with before. I’m just hoping he’ll be ready for opening day."

Fantasy Impact: 

Kubiak isn't the only one hoping Foster will be ready. The good news is that it doesn't sound like a long-term serious injury. However, hamstrings can be problematic, and owners drafting Foster would be very wise to secure Ben Tate just in case, although Derrick Ward will be in the mix as well. We'll be moving Foster down a couple of spots in the next rankings update coming today. Foster still has the most upside on our board, but Adrian Peterson & Ray Rice are now safer picks.
