2) Arian Foster, RB, Houston Texans

Arian Foster is still one of the best in the business, despite missing games this season. He’s averaging 100 yards a game and supplies some much needed balance to the Texans offense. More importantly, he is also a threat to take over a game. The Jags’ front four will have their hands full trying to limit Foster from getting into the second level of the defense, especially since they have not been tackling well. Foster will be hungry to break a big gain on each handoff, so the Jags have to clamp down on him early if they hope for a win. With Ryan Fitzpatrick likely to fall back to earth after a near flawless monster performance last week, expect Foster to get a lot of looks. If the Jags can slow him down and force the game on Fitzpatrick’s arm, then they have a shot. If not, then expect the Arian Foster Show to be on all day.
