Arian Foster week 1? WHIR

This news seems somewhat hopeful. Are the Texans trying to keep the Colts guessing about their running game? Will Foster start week 1, only to leave mid game due to his hammy?

My other option is Lynch who I actually think will have a solid year, but hes someone I don’t want to rely on week1.

Any thoughts? WHIR

id keep my CPU/Phone close by. If hes gonna start,obviously play him.
If not, roll with Lynch....at least he's healthy, and will get a full workload.

If he starts, you gotta play him. Maybe sit him if you had a better option, but not for Lynch.

By asking this, I'll assume you won't have access to your fantasy team at game time and have to make a decision now. If this is the case, I'd still take a gamble on Foster who could potentially torch the Colts even with the Hamstring. If I'm wrong however, keep your eye on his status near game time tomorrow.

I agree, so long as there is a chance he'll play put him in. Of course against a Colts team that has no Manning they might get to a comfortable position in the second half where they can sit him... but there is always a chance they will be in a tough game with their biggest divisional rival in week 1. They want to go into week 2 with an advantage over the Colts, so if Foster plays it will be with full expectation for him to make a 60 minute appearance.

Help me please?

I'll echo what a lot of the other folks said. Keep your phone/computer near by, my personal gut feeling is that he won't play and Houston is trying to keep Indy on their toes. If he does start, you have to start him over lynch, if he doesn't play, you can slip lynch in there.

I hope he plays, but I picked up Tate as a last minute replacement just in case.

Not Playing , I'd take Lynch over Tate only because Tate will be splitting more carries with Ward IMO.

Thanks for your help ;-D
