Take a moment to reminisce college football fans. Do you remember a certain half back for the Tennessee Volunteers by the name of Arian Foster? He was once predicted to win the Heisman at one point. His junior year in 2007 was supposed to be his most productive, but ended up being a slight disaster. He had to share the load with new up and coming back Montario Hardesty. That same year he lost that fumble at the goal line which was returned for a touchdown, not to mention the infamous nickname "Fumblin Foster" was adopted. All the bad luck resulted in Foster being undraftedin 2009. Later he was signed by the Houston Texans. Speeding up to Sunday, September 12th, 2010, the Texan's first game of the season against the Indianapolis Colts, Foster has half redeemed himself. Foster cam out onto the field and put up huge numbers; 33 carries for 231 yards and 3 touchdowns. There where no fumbles by the way. Even though it is not guaranteed, he may have just taken Steve Slaton's starting position with his performance. That quickly, Foster has set the record for the most rushing yards in a game by a Texan. Foster looked like a completely different player when the game started. He definitely turned over a new leaf when he entered the game, total opposite of his last few Volunteer starts. Hopefully he can keep it up for the rest of the season, so he won't be called "Fumblin Foster" ever again. Who would have ever thought that the best choice for fantasy football would be Arian Foster's stats over a mediocre 3 receptions on 33 yards from the explosive Andre Johnson.
