Arian Foster could be looking at 400 carries this year.

Over the last decade or so, NFL teams have begun to shy away from only having one primary ball-carrier.  That's resulted in RB becoming the most devalued position in football.  Yet, we still wonder who's going to lead the league in rushing this year?

The Texans are a bit of an anomaly in today's NFL, because they're winning with the "old formula": Run the ball and play great defense.

Foster continues to be a huge part of that success.  His ability as a pass-catcher makes him a dual threat out of the backfield.
