Arian Foster was unhappy after splitting the carries in week one with Ben Tate. However Gary Kubiak has told the Texans media that he hopes the carries are split a little more evenly.RT @DeepSlant: Kubiak: Going to keep carries close with Foster and Tate for Sunday's game vs. TEN.— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) September 11, 2013This will be a worry for fantasy owners across the country, many of whom selected Foster with a high first round selection. My fantasy advice would be to try and trade Foster for another top tier running back, as he has experienced a decline in his yards per attempt in each of his past three seasons, falling from 4.9 yards per attempt in 2010 4.1 last season.Having watched the Texans opening game of the season, Tate appeared more explosive than Foster, and that was reflected in the statistics from the game. Ben Tate averaged 6.1 yards per carry on nine carries, whereas Foster struggled averaging 3.1 yards per rush.Foster struggled throughout the preseason with injuries, and did not participate in training camp. Therefore it may take some time for him to get back up to game speed. Hearing Kubiak's words, I would expect this time share in the backfield to continue. In my opinion, this should be good news to Texans' fans, as reducing Foster's workload could be key to improving their chances at a deep playoff run.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
