Pats RB D.J. Foster feels 'great' in first preseason game

Running back D.J. Foster caught three passes for 33 yards and ran twice for 9 yards tonight in his preseason debut against the Panthers.

The Patriots were clearly trying to suit his strengths, as they set him up on screens and swing passes, as well as stretch runs to give himself an opportunity to show off his speed and quickness.

“I felt great,” Foster said. “I was telling some guys that was the first time I’ve been hit since college. It felt good getting out there. The coaches gave me the chance to show what I can do.”

Fantasy Impact: 

James White and LaGarrette Blount appear to be the two lead backs, but the team is an injury away from having to go down the depth chart, so Foster is a name to keep an eye on. The Patriots have never really been predictable with their RBs so it's not out of the question Foster has some kind of role, especially when you consider White hasn't really made an impact to this point.
