Week 2 fantasy football owners concerned over the guys they spent high picks on may be able to breathe a sigh of relief as the final lineups come due.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to play and has reportedly looked good in practice this week. According to ESPN reports this morning, Foster is expected to take two-thirds of the touches today with Ben Tate expected to get some touches in relief of Foster.  

New York Jets star Santonio Holmes is active and will play today against Jacksonville.  

Detroit Lions fantasy stud Calvin Johnson is also a go. Megatron had been questionable this week with an ankle injury, but is now a confirmed start against against Kansas City.

Other key fantasy football player injuries are not yet clear. Currently, New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks and Dallas Cowboys stud Dez Bryant are still listed as questionable.  

This column will be updated with the latest news on both players and any other key fantasy news throughout the afternoon.
