Player Outlook

It's hard to count on Arian Foster for a large role in Fantasy or in the NFL in 2016 after he tore his Achilles last October. He underwent surgery, missed the rest of the 2015 season and was subsequently released by the Texans in March. He'll turn 30 just before the start of the season and is in the market for a new home. We suspect Foster will sign a deal somewhere to serve as a part-time back, potentially just in passing situations. Such a role would probably keep him healthy but really cap his numbers. Do not draft Foster thinking you'll have a chance at catching him on a rebound year. And do not draft Foster believing he will be ready for the start of the season. Foster is only worth taking a chance on with a pick past 100th overall in all leagues.

Player News
  • The Dolphins and Foster (Achilles) agreed to a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After getting a baseline on Foster's recovery from a torn Achilles in late March, the Dolphins' medical staff must have been impressed enough with his recovery on his second go-around Monday to give the front office the thumb's up. Considering his age (30 next month) and the fact he's nine months removed from the devastating injury, he'll more than likely ease into training camp. However, his competition includes two unproven products -- second-year back Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake (hamstring) -- which provides a path to relevance for Foster. On the other hand, the final stages of Foster's rehab will ultimately dictate when he'll be able to make an impact.

  • Foster (Achilles) will work out for the Dolphins on Monday and then for the Lions later in the week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Foster previously visited with the Dolphins in late March, at which point he was only five months removed from suffering a torn right Achilles. He expects to be available for the start of training camp, but there's no guarantee he'll look anything like his peak self. Miami is an ideal landing spot, as Foster would join a backfield that's currently counting on second-year pro Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake. Other possible fits include Detroit, Washington and New Englands.

  • Arian Foster: Expects to be ready for training camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Foster (Achilles) is expected to be healthy for training camp, should he sign with a team, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Foster was released by Houston, his home for the past seven seasons, earlier in the offseason after another disappointing year plagued by injuries. Currently unemployed, he continues to rehab from a torn Achilles in the hopes of finding his way onto a roster. Reports say the four-time Pro Bowler will be hungry and healthy for training camp should any team bring him on.

  • Arian Foster: Needs another month to rehab
    By RotoWire Staff

    Foster (Achilles) said he probably needs another month to get back into top shape, ABC 13 Houston reports. Foster made it clear he expects to regain his top form, even though he'll turn 30 before the season and is recovering from a torn Achilles suffered in late October. He'll likely join a team before training camp, with Miami, Washington and New England among the potential fits. He visited the Dolphins at the end of March, but has repeatedly made it clear he's in no hurry to sign a contract.

  • Arian Foster: Leaves Miami without contract offer
    By RotoWire Staff

    Foster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy. Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.
