Arian Foster (RB)

Arian Foster (irregular heartbeat) scared every single one of his owners last week, and quite honestly, he let every single one of those owners down as well. I’m glad he is ok, let me say that, but let’s not pretend that Weeks 14-16 don’t rule our emotions. If your league played through Week 16 and you lost because Foster was an early departure, all I can say is that I feel your pain – I lost Foster in 3 leagues… If you play through Week 17, and you somehow managed to sneak out a win last week, well, we received good news recently, as Foster is expected to play in Week 17. Start Foster this week if you are still playing, don’t think twice about it. So, the bigger question surrounds Foster’s dynasty value… is his irregular heartbeat a concern? I wish I knew the answer to that, but it’s a good sign he is already back in action suiting up for Week 17. Still, despite all the good reports, it’s tough to trust that we are being fed all of the most accurate and up-to-date information. Knock Foster down a few spots on your dynasty running back rankings until we really know more. Don’t move him down too far, as I’m only ranking Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice and maybe one other back above him (at this point).
