Robert Foster signed with the Dolphins this season, and he will compete for a role as a reserve receiver. He's not worth drafting in most Fantasy leagues. Foster spent 2020 with Washington and had little impact. In Miami, Foster will compete with Preston Williams, Jakeem Grant, Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson for playing time, among others, behind Jaylen Waddle, DeVante Parker and Will Fuller.
Foster agreed to a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Foster hasn't produced any meaningful statistics since recording a 27-541-3 line as an undrafted rookie with the Bills in 2018. The Dolphins already have DeVante Parker, Preston Williams (foot) and Jakeem Grant (ankle) locked into key roles for 2021, so Foster is unlikely to see much regular wok at receiver. Instead, the 26-year-old will likely make his biggest impact on the Dolphins' special-teams units.
Foster played in four games for the Washington Football Team in 2020, catching two of six targets for 37 yards. Foster hasn't been able to recapture his 2018 rookie magic from Buffalo, but he did play a lot of special-teams snaps for Washington in December and January, potentially creating a path to a roster spot in 2021. The Alabama product isn't likely to generate much interest as a restricted free agent this offseason, after catching just five passes in 17 games the past two years.
Foster (coach's decision) is a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports. Foster has only appeared in four games for Washington this season, having secured two of six targets for 37 yards. He's also played 48 snaps on special teams.
Foster finished without a catch on two targets in Sunday's 23-15 win over the 49ers. It was Foster's second appearance since signing with Washington in late October. He played five snaps on offense and 14 on special teams, working as the No. 5 receiver behind Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims, Steven Sims and Isaiah Wright.
Foster is active Sunday against the Bengals for the first time this season, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports. The 26-year-old was signed by Washington off Green Bay's practice squad a month ago, but Sunday's contest will be his first time suiting up in 2020. Foster should operate as a depth wideout for the Football Team.
