3 of the past 4 weeks for Foster have been less than stellar and it begs the question is Foster wearing down? Probably has more to do with Houston trying to grab him a rest but he's had over 900 carries the past 3 seasons (will probably have over 350 this year) and I just thought it might be a little food for thought for next year.

His rushing averages haven't been particularly great all year. If he can't be guaranteed the quantity next year it could be a worry.

I am a little worried about drafting him next year if I have the opportunity. I never thought he was the most gifted runner, just kind solid at everything. I am not sure how long a runner like him, in the scheme he is in, can last.

Call me crazy but I think it has something to do with his "Vegan" lifestyle. He just isn't the same runner this season. I don't think it has anything to do with wearing down.

Maybe his vegan diet was due to heart concerns :-k

Maybe cutting Eric Winston and losing Brisiel to free agency has something to do with it. I doubt very much it's him going Vegan. It's a healthy life.

This... The offensive line hasn't been as good as last year and it is showing somewhat in Foster's performances. In recent weeks, I think it has more to do with Kubiak's stupid playcalling than Foster wearing down (outside of the heart item).

I think Arian Foster is a great RB, but he's not a talent of the level that explains his top notch level of production. That line and that blocking scheme are a huge part of the Texans' success running the ball. Foster is a very good RB, but as that line goes so goes Foster's fantasy fortunes. I'm going to be hesitant about taking him too early next season, but the concern doesn't reach a level of dropping him off my board in the 1st round.

Question mark should be on Richardson not spiller. Spiller will be solid. Also depends on your league if its ppr I would feel very comfortable taking a wr.

He's such a good goal line back, that I'd have trouble passing on him at #2 next year. Thinking long term though---he just seems like a weird guy...philosophy majors. I could see him pulling a Tiki a little early.

I think hes wearing down a little bit, but with a full offseason of rest I think hell be back to his old self
and a top 5 back next year. However, I realized his big play ability is not as huge as a few other backs, (e.g. Charles with multiple 50+ yd runs) but his goal line usage has to be one of the best in the league. With such few options in the passing game, Foster is always involved. Anywho, for next year these are my top backs:
1. AP
2. Lynch
3.Foster
4.Morris
5.Martin
6.Rice
7.Ridley
8.Richardson
9.Charles
10. Spiller
