2) Arian Foster

Foster is a workhorse and is slightly riskier because of that workload. Not only did he carry the ball 351 times last year, but he also caught 40 passes. He has averaged nearly 14 rushing touchdowns a season over the past three years. In 2010 and 2011, he gained over 600 receiving yards as well. If your league values touchdowns, Foster is probably the number two back off the board. The Texans love to run the ball so Foster will continue to get carries. Don’t be surprised if there is a small slip from the 1,424 yards he complied in 2012, but when you figure in the yards, receiving yards, and touchdowns, Foster is fantasy gold.
