Week 10 IDP Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf 11:11pm EST 11/5/17

Reuben Foster, MLB, 49ers

For the 3rd time this season, Foster left Sunday’s game with an injury. And he has only appeared in 3 games so far. This time, however, he returned and finished the day with 14 tackles (13 solo).

Facing 37 Adrian Peterson rushing attempts certainly helped that, but Foster should be set for high tackle upside whenever he can stay on the field.

The Niners moved to their 4th weak-side LB of the season Sunday, starting Brock Coyle over Ray-Ray Armstrong. They also lost a starting safety (Jaquiski Tartt) to a season-ending broken arm for the 2nd straight week.

HC Kyle Shanahan said after the game that Foster was dealing with effects of the high-ankle sprain that cost him 5 weeks earlier this season -- and that he likely will continue to do so for the rest of the year. That will obviously add weekly risk to Foster, but it’ll be worth absorbing at some level in most IDP leagues.
