The Cardinals have plucked RB D.J. Foster from the Patriots' practice squad. He went undrafted last year and totaled just 8 touches as a rookie. The Arizona State product goes 6'0, 195 pounds and played some RB and WR over a 4-year college career that featured 444 carries and 222 catches. We'll keep an eye on Foster, but he's not yet worth owning in fantasy football. His addition is a sign, though, that the Cardinals won't lean too heavily on any 1 back in David Johnson's absence.
Patriots RB D.J. Foster is a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Cardinals. There was some concern that he'd steal passing-down work from RB James White after a big showing in the preseason finale. White is now a much safer fantasy play.
Patriots RB D.J. Foster hauled in 9 of 10 targets for 110 yards in Thursday night's preseason finale. His 9 carries totaled just 22 yards. That pass-catching work is what's important, though, for an offense looking to replace RB Dion Lewis. Four of Foster's catches came from QB Tom Brady in 1 half of action. ESPN's Mike Reiss reported before the game that Foster and Tyler Gaffney could be fighting for 1 roster spot. Gaffney took 6 carries for 22 yards and wasn't targeted in Thursday's game. We'll see which guys sticks on the roster on Saturday.
