10:38 AM ET 09.08 | If you are wondering about whether or not you should be starting Houston Texans running back Arian Foster on your fantasy football team this week, you should proceed with caution because the team is expected to rotate their running backs, which means Foster could see a decrease in production. The news came from head coach Gary Kubiak as the team prepares for their Week One matchup. The decision is being made to preserve Foster and ensure that he is healthy for the long run this season, but don't be surprised to see the team continue with this strategy if it is successful.

Well good because Houston has been in some trouble finding talented backs over the years. Steve Slaton, Arian Foster, Ben Tate. Oh Gary, as a Steelers fan I think you had it way to good choosing between three backs that could've easily handled this kind of work load and average close to Arians numbers.
I also find it comical that you couldn't work a decent trade for any of the backups. Ben Tate? Prime time running back material, he's getting old and Arian will be the starter for the next two years, might as well get a good pick in the draft and see what comes up. Slaton? former 1500 yard potential runner who had problems with possession (of the football). A free agent now, as soon as Arian was exploding like he was in 2009/2010 you should've sent him away for all the first round picks New England was offering.

Kubiak's zone blocking scheme has always allowed for multiple backs to succeed. His time in Denver being the most obvious example. It's almost as simple as plug and play.
