2019 Fantasy Outlook
Foster has floated around the league since joining the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2016, spending time on the practice squad and 53-man roster of both that team and the Cardinals. The latter organization has provided more opportunity to make a mark - 36 touches with Arizona in 2017 versus 25 in New England one year prior - but he didn't handle any last season due to a preseason ACL tear. In the meantime, rehabilitation has been Foster's focus, and when healthy he'll join Chase Edmonds and T.J. Logan in the competition for slotting behind starting running back David Johnson.

Foster (hamstring) re-signed Wednesday with the Cardinals on a one-year contract.
ANALYSIS
Foster appeared in six contests with the Cardinals in 2019 prior to sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury. When back to full health, he'll spend the summer competing for a reserve role out of the backfield behind Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
An undrafted free agent in 2016, Foster made three appearances as a rookie with the Patriots, but the backfield was too stacked for him to make their 53-man roster after last preseason. He instead spent Week 1 on New England's practice squad, from which he was plucked by Arizona on the heels of David Johnson's dislocated wrist in the opener. Foster needed time to ingratiate himself with coach Bruce Arians and company, but another season-ending injury to Adrian Peterson forced the Cardinals' hand. From Week 11 onward, Foster was a receiving complement to starter Kerwynn Williams, reeling in 17 of 28 passes for 133 yards over the final seven games. With Johnson back to handle a workhorse role and the selection of fourth-rounder Chase Edmonds, Foster may be a healthy scratch weekly, assuming he lands a spot on the final squad.
Foster, who joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State, finished up his rookie season with seven carries for 24 yards and one catch for two yards over the course of three games for the Patriots. Every-down NFL work may not be in the cards for Foster, who is on the team's practice squad, but his RB/WR flexibility could help the 6-0, 195-pounder if injuries hit the New England backfield.
As an undrafted free agent, Foster will need to shine in the preseason in order to secure a roster spot, but he could well find his way with a role with the Patriots out of the gate, especially if Dion Lewis (knee) ends up being slowed early on. At 6-foot, 195 pounds, Foster profiles more as a change-of-pace option, with his quick feet potentially making him an asset to the team as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
