Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans RB Ben Tate continued to post an impressive yards-per-carry average, picking up 44 yards on just seven carries last week. A late fumble near the Texans’ end zone helped set up the Seahawks’ rally. But HC Gary Kubiak stressed there was no correlation between the turnover and the all-Arian Foster approach toward the end of the game.

“Let me say this: I’ve got total confidence in Ben. I think Ben is playing extremely well,” Kubiak said. “I don’t know if Ben got a carry after the fumble but it was not a reflection of that. I have total confidence in him."

Fantasy Impact: 

Foster seems like he's found his form, so its pretty safe to say he'll get a bulk of the workload with Tate mixed in for 12-15 touches while Foster gets 25, the story said. Tate is still a great handcuff for Foster owners and borderline usable in deeper leagues.
