If there are no setbacks, he could return September 27th in the game against Tampa Bay. It was first thought that he would be placed on IR/Designated for return but now it appears he will avoid that and return at an earlier date. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This will help his draft stock a bit, as he would have missed at least eight games had he been placed on IR/DFR. Still, be wary, as this is only speculation.

Groin injury. Will miss at least the first 8 games of the regular season. In the 13 games that he played in 2014, Arian Foster averaged 18.1 fantasy points per game, 2nd only to DeMarco Murray at 18.4. In 2014 the Houston Texans led the league in rushing attempts (34.5) per game. New Offensive Coordinator George Godsey takes over for Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison who departs for Denver. Godsey is also the QB coach, so don't expect a drop-off in run/pass percentages. I like Foster as a solid mid to late round 1 draft pick, but due to missing 11 games over the past 2 seasons, I don't have him ranked in the elite RBs.

Expectations are for him to return to football by Week 2-4.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 29th
Foster is going to require groin surgery and will probably not be available for the Texans first 8 games of the season, which means he could return in Week 10. It's a devastating blow for Foster, Texans fans and fantasy owners. The best he is going to be is a RB4 and should probably not go until very late in the draft or be a waiver wire claim when more is known.

That stinks about Foster. One of my favorite NFL players but also a player I never owned in fantasy. Hope he comes back strong.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 29th
His injury changes everything and could come back around Week 10 so he can help with the play-off run but will hog valuable bench space throughout the season. If you have an injured reserve spot then that could be the strategy to take with him.

Foster managed nagging injuries all last year well enough to finish with 298 touches, 1,573 total yards, 13 touchdowns and his best rushing average since 2010 with 4.8 yards per carry. He could return from his preseason injury by Week 4, which would be big for his outlook this season.

Major fantasy production when healthy, but at least 3 DNPs in 3 of past 4 seasons - given age (soon to be 29), mileage, history, you can't buy heavily into fact that he's feeling great right now
Breaking Football | Aug 28th
only out 2-4 weeks now? well, if thats true then the value here is insane
Fantasy Couch | Aug 27th
Not worth a draft pick in any league except ones with multiple IR spots
RotoBaller | Aug 27th
Best case scenario: half a season. If you think you can get 5 or 6 wins without him, you COULD use a 10+rounder on him, but you'd better be good.

I hope you've done your research and have participated in at least one mock draft by now.  Keyword, of course, being mock.  After seeing what happened to Arian Foster on Tuesday, you don't want to draft until the last minute possible.  However, you want to go into your strategy with a plan, not blind.

Arian Foster‘s groin injury is going to force him to enter surgery and miss anywhere from 6-8 weeks of the regular season depending on whether the Texan’s decide to put him on PUP or IR (as of writing this article, which of the two they’ll go with is unclear).

No team rushed more times than the Houston Texans (551 carries) last season, but they will be without their workhorse back for a significant portion of the 2015 NFL season. Per John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Arian Foster will need surgery on his "severe" groin injury that he suffered last night. Foster probably headed to short term injured reserve, meaning he can practice after w...

Ouch – for both Houston Texans key running back Arian Foster, and to those who were looking forward to drafting Foster in their fantasy football league (and by “those” people, I mean poor Blackberry-texting time travelers from the year 2012).

Buzz: Initially broken by Tania Ganguli, who walks the Texans beat for ESPN NFL Nation, Arian Foster suffered a severe groin injury in Houston's first practice with pads. The concern is the setback could require surgery which would shelve the fantasy superstar for weeks if not months. How predictable. Suffice it to say, the drama should be THICK on the season-debut of "Hard Knocks."  [Yahoo S...
