2019 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted free agent, Foster exploded late in the year with four 90-yard receiving performances and three touchdowns over the final seven contests of his rookie season. This was no mean feat on a team whose biggest weapon for most of the year was its quarterback's legs. Foster finished with a whopping 20 YPC and 12.3 YPT, including four catches of 40-plus yards on only 44 targets, i.e., he was the most efficient receiver in the league (other than Tyler Lockett) on a per-play basis. At 6-2, 196, and running a 4.41 40, Foster is fast and lanky and had no trouble taking the top off of defenses. The issue for him, beyond the small sample, is the Bills' signing of deep threat John Brown, a player who not only will compete for targets, but who also serves the same function as Foster. The Bills also added slot man Cole Beasley and bring back target leader Zay Jones, but Brown is the bigger threat to Foster's production. Read Past Outlooks

Foster walked off the practice field Monday with his left foot wrapped in ice, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Foster's status for Friday's preseason game against the Lions will thus need to be monitored. The sooner the wideout gets back to the field, the better, though, given that Foster hasn't seemed to make a strong push for a starting slot thus far. For now, the team's top three receivers figure to be Zay Jones, John Brown and Cole Beasley.
