Arian Foster is going first overall in most fantasy drafts this season. With Matt Schaub at the helm and Andre Johnson always a health concern, the Texans passing game isn’t exactly top flight. Like they did last season, Houston will lean heavily on Foster and give him a ton of touches.

It appears that rapper Joe Buddens is no different from the rest of us- he wants Foster on his fantasy team. The only difference is he had the ability to ask Foster directly if he was a safe pick. Check out this screenshot of a text message that Buddens posted on Twitter:

Assuming that really was a text from Foster, it sounds like he is feeling confident — even with his new vegan diet. The photo itself has since been deleted, most like per Foster’s request because of his unfortunate use of language. If he’s confident enough to tell Buddens to pick him, you should probably consider Arian a safe selection on draft day.
