    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) announced his retirement from football Monday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Foster has been dealing with injuries once again this season and had clearly lost his starting job to Jay Ajayi. The 30-year-old's body just didn't have enough gas left in the tank to be sustainable for another full NFL season. Ajayi is a must-own player at this point after rushing for 200-plus yards in back-to-back games. Damien Williams is a viable handcuff, particularly in PPR leagues. Foster is obviously safe drop in all formats.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 9:19am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game.

    Huddle Up: Foster will not be in the starting lineup but should receive some touches during the game. Foster could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 1:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Foster should be available to play in Week 7 but may be behind Jay Ajayi in terms of snaps during the game. He should still have a decent role in the offense and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 3:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how Adam Gase utilizes all of his running backs. Jay Ajayi deserves more work after last week's performance. Foster's main role could be in the passing game. He's a flex at best in Miami's current backfield situation.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 1:31pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Foster should be active for the team's Week 7 game but his role is uncertain since Jay Ajayi had a terrific game last week. Foster should see some touches during the game, but owners likely will have better options available.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 12:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is still not at 100 percent, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase did say that Foster 'still brings something to the table,' however.

    Huddle Up: If there was a feast at the table in Week 6 then Foster must have brought the salad dressing. Jay Ajayi brought the entrees, the sides and the dessert. We could see more of an even split once Foster is fully ready, but Ajayi should continue to see most of the work after his Week 6 breakout. Ajayi is another top waiver wire pickup this week, especially for those who want to handcuff Foster.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 8:30pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) returned to action in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He ran three times for just three yards, and he added two catches for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: Foster did very little, and his role is likely to remains rather limited with Jay Ajayi going off in the victory. Foster is worth adding in fantasy leagues if he is available off the waiver wire, but keep him reserved until his role expands.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 7:46am ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Foster was listed as questionable on the injury report but was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 14. However, he hasn't played since Week 2 and wasn't very productive prior to getting hurt, making him a risky flex option versus Pittsburgh.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 6:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: He is expected to be a game-time decision, but even if Foster suits up, he is a risky flex play. He hasn't produced much when healthy, and he is just one hit away from his next injury.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 12:17pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 16, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Foster has been practicing on a limited basis throughout the week, so it appeared he was closer to making his return after missing the prior three games. Even if he does manage to suit up, he's a shaky option, given that he'd likely be playing at less than 100 percent, plus the Dolphins' offense has been messy in the early going. If has to sit once again, Jay Ajayi would be the biggest beneficiary, though he can be a mixed bag as a RB3.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 1:11pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Even with the limited practices, it would be mildly surprising if Foster doesn't return this weekend. His status will need to be monitored heading into the weekend, but he's in RB3 territory against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he does play.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 5:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Foster has a good chance to play in Week 6 and probably will regain the starting job. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers run defense but could still be a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 9:45am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) is expected to play in Week 6 and will work more in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Foster is a flex candidate against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. However, the offensive line has been an issue, and it may take a week to kick off the rust.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 7:21pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 7, and is listed as doubtful for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Foster will miss another game, but continue to stash him if possible. He should be the lead back when he returns and a viable flex option.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 1:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) will 'most likely' be held out Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. While there is belief he can play, his status is expected to come down to a 'coaching decision'.

    Huddle Up: It would probably be the prudent move given Foster's injury history. The Dolphins have had next to no running game since Foster got hurt early in Week 2, but all the blame doesn't necessarily fall on his replacements. Still, it is obvious head coach Adam Gase trusts Foster more than he does any other back on the roster. He'll be a midrange flex option when he does return.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 2:38pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 6. The Dolphins did not practice; Foster's status is an estimation of how active he would have been if Miami did practice.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear if Foster will be able to take the field. If he's sidelined again then the Dolphins would once again implement a committee of Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams. None of them are worth writing home about, but Ajayi would be the better bet if Foster is out. That being said, Ajayi is a flex play at best, but he's been too inconsistent to expect much from.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 9:56pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin, hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 5, but head coach Adam Gase said Foster will not be rushed. RBs Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will shoulder the load against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5 if Foster cannot go.

    Huddle Up: Foster is such a talented football player, but his propensity for injury is a major headache for fantasy owners. Avoid him if you have other alternatives and wait to see him prove his health in a game or two before relying upon him again.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 5:47pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Foster could be a game-time decision for Week 5, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Foster is a solid No. 2 running back when he is healthy, but owners will need other options ready in case Foster is ruled out.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 9:45am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) is unlikely to play in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The Dolphins are likely to trim down the running back committee in order to allow one or two of the backs to gain a rhythm. Jay Ajayi is likely to be in the lead, and Kenyan Drake in some form behind him. Both are worth owning, but neither are more than flex options against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Posted: 10/4/2016 10:24am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Foster has not practiced since suffering his injury in Week 2, so even if he is able to get in a couple of limited sessions later this week, it is unlikely he'll be of much use this weekend versus the Tennessee Titans. Jay Ajayi appeared to make a move to take over lead-back duties in Foster's absence last week and head coach Adam Gase has publicly stated he would like to let one runner get into a rhythm, but there's just not enough upside in this backfield to put up with the headaches it will cause in most weeks.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 2:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will continue to share work at running back with Foster sidelined. None of the running back posted great numbers in the team's Week 3 game and they likely will not receive enough carries to have a big impact. Ajayi may be a flex option in deeper leagues, but most owners should be able to find better options.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 2:58pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 27. Foster's status is an estimate as the Dolphins did not conduct a practice.

    Huddle Up: Foster is doubtful in a short week for the Dolphins. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will comprise a committee backfield, but that backfield is too much of a crapshoot right now to seriously consider starting anyone. If push comes to shove, Ajayi is the better bet.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 2:46pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Monday, Sept. 26. Foster's status is an estimate as the Dolphins did not conduct a practice.

    Huddle Up: The signs are pointing to Foster missing at least another week, especially since the Dolphins play on Thursday in Week 4. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will comprise a committee backfield, but that backfield is too much of a crapshoot right now to seriously consider starting anyone. If hard pressed, though, Ajayi is the better bet.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 8:08am ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) won't be rushed back, according to head coach Adam Gase, which casts him as doubtful for Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Jay Ajayi had just seven rushes for 28 yards, but a touchdown saved his performance in Week 3. However, he lost a fumble in the game as well. He's a flex option against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.
