Arian Foster has established himself among the NFL's elite running backs.
Arian Foster burst onto the scene in 2010, leading the NFL in rushing just one year after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee. Since then, he has proven himself to be among the most consistent and dominant running backs in the NFL.
Foster, the feature back in the Houston Texans' run-based offense, currently sits second in the NFL with 561 yards rushing, and leads the league with an average of 26.4 carries per game.
As the running game goes, so too does the entire Texans offense, so we can expect his opportunities to remain consistent.
Although he is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry so far this season, look for that to increase moving forward as the somewhat new look Texans offensive line continues to come together. Should this happen, Foster can easily find himself at least within the league's top five leading rushers for the third consecutive season.
