Foster wrapped up 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Giants.
Foster followed up his impressive 14-tackle performance last week with another double-digit total in the 49ers' first win of the season. The rookie was on the field for all 66 of the team's defensive snaps and has become the defacto leader of a young defensive squad. As long as he is healthy, the middle linebacker is proving to be a must-own fantasy asset in IDP formats.
Foster (ankle) logged a game-high 14 tackles (13 solo) in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Cardinals.
Foster made his triumphant return to the field after missing several games due to rib and ankle injuries. The talented rookie suffered a scare in the second half when he went down grasping his previously injured ankle. It turned out to be nothing more than a stinger, and the linebacker returned to the game and set a lofty career high with 14 total tackles. Foster was given many opportunities for wrap ups due to Adrian Peterson setting a high-water mark in carries this season with 37 on Sunday. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect this high of a total every week, but as long as he is healthy, Foster has the makings of a top-end IDP option.
Foster (ribs) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Foster will end his DNP stretch at one contest, allowing him to retain his starting spot at middle linebacker. In two appearances as a rookie, he's tallied eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defended on 64 defensive snaps.
Foster (ribs), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, will play in the contest, a source informed Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Foster's availability would be a major boon with the Cardinals expected to adopt a run-heavy attack featuring lead back Adrian Peterson as they break in a new starter (Drew Stanton) under center. Injuries have limited Foster to just two games in his rookie season, but the linebacker could have some appeal in IDP settings if he's able to stay healthy for must of the second half of the campaign. He's accrued eight tackles in just 66 snaps in 2017.
Foster (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Foster started the week with an ankle injury as well, but the ribs are apparently the only remaining area of concern. Foster was able to practice on a limited basis this week and the 49ers already have seven players projected as inactives for Sunday's game, so he appears set to play.
