Reports: Arian Foster Could Return to Field in September

By Jason Lisk

Earlier this week, Aaron Wilson also sent out this info that if things went well he could be back by the end of September.

Foster has still suffered the leg injuries in recent years, and there is no certainty that he will come back without being limited for a period of time. He’s also turning 29. Nevertheless, he will be a wildcard if you still have an upcoming fantasy draft. In my earlier RB rankings, I had him in the mid-30’s among running backs on the idea that he would be the clear starter for only 8 games. This news moves him more into the late-20’s, with roughly 11 games as a clear starter, though I wouldn’t go higher than that given all the questions about what he might have when he returns, and whether he can stay healthy again.
