News:D.J. Foster took nine carries for 41 yards and grabbed two receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown Thursday night as Arizona State fell to Oregon 43-21 at home in Tempe.
Analysis:D.J. Foster proved about the only weapon on the offensive side of the ball for Arizona State to find success in Thursday night's game against the Oregon Ducks and, as such, should continue to draw interest as a fantasy option in Pac-12 and deeper leagues given his ability to produce not only as a ball carrier, but also a receiver.
News:D.J. Foster took nine carries for 61 yards and six receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown Thursday night as Arizona State routed Colorado 51-17 on the road in Boulder.
Analysis: Like teammate and fellow tailback Marion Grice, D.J. Foster has served as an offensive jack-of-all-trades, averaging seven carries and 47 yards rushing and three receptions and 49 yards catching per start this season. He's only found the end zone four times so far in 2012, so he may not be an attractive draw for owners outside of Pac-12 only or deep general leagues. Keeper owners, however, may very well want to take note of the freshman moving forward.

News:D.J. Foster led all Sun Devils rushers with 10 carries for 70 yards Saturday as Arizona State defeated Utah 37-7 at home in Tempe.
Analysis: The freshman posted his best-ever performance as a collegiate tailback in Saturday's game, but the fact ASU head coach Todd Graham is spreading carries out to as many players as he is (eight in the win over Utah) means D.J. Foster's overall fantasy value will likely remain very limited.
