Strength of Schedule

Fantasy Analysis
Coming off two straight games with 100-plus rushing yards and two touchdowns, the must-play Foster is healthy and running well. The Pittsburgh Steelers have yielded just 69 rushing yards and 1.0 rushing touchdowns per game during the last month, but the numbers are misleading. Pittsburgh faced only one good rushing attack in that time frame. Last week, the Cleveland Browns gouged the Steelers for 158 yards on the ground. SATURDAY UPDATE: Foster (groin) took part in a full Friday practice. He is listed as PROBABLE to play Monday night.
Rushing: 87 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 25 Yards, 0 TD.

Foster saw his 2013 season come to an end after only eight games due to a back injury that required surgery last November. That's the bad news. The good news is that Foster has been medically cleared and will be ready for training camp. More good news is that Foster actually looked sharp and fresh last season. The shaky quarterback situation in Houston could allow defenses to stack the box in an effort to contain Foster and force the team to throw. After incurring a massive workload from 2010-2012, there is some concern that Foster could be wearing down as he's struggled with hamstring issues. The extended break and recovery time from back surgery should see him enter the 2014 season as healthy as he's been in recent years. The addition of former Giants running back Andre Brown is no threat to Foster's workload and he'll continue to be a three-down player. Look for a bounce-back season for the soon to be 28-year-old, but the days of Foster posting top-5 fantasy totals are over.

Rushing: 1250 Yards, 12 TD.
Receiving: 52 Receptions, 450 Yards, 1 TD.

Draft Analysis
Round 1, Pick 1
Positives
Hard worker capable of playing through injuries. Offense is capable of a lot of scoring. PPR monster who will continue to get a lot of receptions. will be the main focus as RB again with Tate as a breather back only. Definitely a 3 down RB!
Negatives
Starting the season with a Hamstring pull. Houston is being very conservative with the recovery. Last year was his breakout year and some consider him a one hit wonder (I disagree). His total touches was approaching the magic 400 number that usually leads to a breakdown the following year.
Draft Strategy
Hammerhead shark 4 league PPR. I also considered Ray Rice & Chris Johnson. I am very concerned about the Ravens offensive line (center especially) and the hold out might get nasty with Johnson. So in my opinion Foster is the most likely to succeed. (Contributed by: Mad_Puppy)

Round 1, Pick 1
Positives
Absolutely torched the league last season, finishing 90 points clear of the field. Plays on one of the most dangerous offenses in the league behind a crushing zone-blocking offensive line.
Negatives
Only one year of elite performance as a track record. Lost one of the best blocking fullbacks to free agency. Not as good of a football player as the primary alternative, Adrian Peterson.
Draft Strategy
This year it comes down to AF and AP for the first selection, with good arguments for either. I think Foster is the upside pick, and Peterson is the high floor guy. (Contributed by: Agenda42)

Draft Strategy
I had moved Ray Rice to my #1 until Ricky Williams showed up in Baltimore, hopefully Fosters hammy doesn't linger and has similar numbers as last year. (Contributed by: jerexter)
