Normally I like to feature someone who surprised or rose above the crowd when they normally don’t. However, no one really did anything to dominate the ball anything like what Arian Foster did. On 30 touches, Foster gave his fantasy owners nearly 170 total yards to go with his TD plunge. I should know, I played against his owner with a 20 point lead. It always hurts when you look and see someone with 100 yards at the half and a touchdown. Overall, his first half would’ve been more than enough but he came back to front the load for Houston as they were without Ben Tate for the game. Speaking of Tate, I really thought some of these yards/carries so far into the season would be partially going to him but now Foster is on pace for 422 carries and 32 catches. That’s a lot of touches for one season. Now I’m not trying to scare Foster owners as he’s already given you a few questionable/probable heart palpitations on Sundays already this season but realize this. Larry Johnson was a ...

With their win last night against the New York Jets, the Houston Texans moved to 5-0. They're now two and a half games in front of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South. If not for the Colts' improbable comeback against the Packers Sunday, Houston would enjoy a nearly invincible three and a half game advantage on the rest of the division. It's not likely that the Colts...
JJ Watt was such a dominant force blocking passes during the Texans’ 23-17 win over the Jets on Monday night, Rex Ryan joked that he should be playing for the Knicks. “That JJ Watt’s the real deal,” Ryan said in his postgame press conference. “I think the Knicks should pick him up too with all the shot-blocking he did.
