Texans RB Arian Foster 'is more determined than ever to reach his goals'

If you are a fantasy owner who was left a little disappointed with what you got from Texans running back Arian Foster @ArianFoster last year, you're not alone. Foster wasn't happy about his stats either, and he is really focused on putting up bigger numbers in 2013, according to Texans running backs coach Chick Harris.
"I think Arian is more determined than ever to reach his goals of being better than last year and obtaining more yards in both the passing game and run game," Harris said to the Texans' official website back in June. "He knows what he did the year before. He did not attain the amount of yards that he had prior so therefore he's gunning for it.
"He hasn't even gotten close to what he can do."

Fantasy Analysis:

Foster actually had 187 more rushing yards in 2012 than in 2011, but he did so on 73 more carries. If Foster is "gunning" for a repeat of any season, he should try to repeat what he did in 2010. That would be really impressive. No one expects that, but as a common No. 2 overall pick in fantasy drafts, fantasy owners are expecting a better season than his most recent one. Of course, there are at least a few questions that need to be answered to that end. In no particular order: Is Foster going to be healthy for the start of training camp? Will his 1,243 touches over the past three years cause his body to break down? Can the Texans' offensive line do a better job of opening lanes for Foster?
