Arian Foster Another Game Time Decision For Week 12

Texans coach Bill O'Brien is calling Arian Foster a game-time decision according to the Houston Chronicle.Fantasy Spin:O'Brien said the same thing last week, and Foster came no where close to playing. His chances seem better for Week 12, but keep Alfred Blue stashed just in case. Foster is a RB1 if he plays, and Blue is a decent RB2.
