Texans WR Andre Johnson, RB Arian Foster ready for Week 7

The Texans will have their best offensive weapons available Sunday against the Chiefs. And they're going to need them. Running back Arian Foster @ArianFoster and wide receiver Andre Johnson @johnson80 are both listed as probable. Both were limited during the practice week -- Foster sat out Thursday's session -- but they will be full-go in Week 7.

Fantasy Analysis:

Foster is an easy must-start. The Chiefs don't allow many fantasy points to running backs, but they are allowing about 4.3 yards per carry. Foster will get all of the carries and check-down passes he can handle as the Texans look to make the game as easy as possible for Case Keenum @casekeenum7.
The presence of Keenum makes putting Johnson into your lineup a tougher call, but I think you still need to play him. Keenum knows whom his go-to receiver is, and the plan for him should be simple: Feed the beast. Of course, the Chiefs should expect this and force the undrafted quarterback playing in his first career game to look somewhere for his yards. While it might be a hit-and-miss day for Johnson, I expect him to get more than enough targets to be worth starting.
