Texans beat writer Tania Ganguli...

Who will back up Arian Foster? The Texans currently have Dennis Johnson and Jonathan Grimes returning from last year's squad, plus free-agency pickup Andre Brown and draft pick Alfred Blue. I think this will come down to Brown and Blue. Brown has an edge on starting experience. Blue has an edge on youth and lack of mileage. Evaluating the status of the running game requires seeing the backs and the linemen blocking for them in pads.

Fantasy Impact: 

Our bet is that it will be Brown, who showed he was very capable while with the Giants. Anyone who drafts Foster should try to get his backup, whoever it is. We'll know more as the summer wears on.
