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

Nabs first catch of 2019
WRBuffalo Bills
November 12, 2019
Foster caught a 20-yard pass on his only target of Sunday's 19-16 loss to Cleveland.
ANALYSIS
Foster set up Buffalo's first touchdown of the game early in the second quarter, finding a soft spot in front of his defender and making a 20-yard catch to bring Buffalo into the red zone. It was the Alabama product's first catch of 2019, as he has struggled to find opportunities and has recorded just one game with multiple targets (Week 2 against the Giants). John Brown and Cole Beasley continue to dominate looks from Josh Allen with a target share of 44.0 percent between them. Foster doesn't figure to expand his role much against a suddenly surging Dolphins squad that was left for dead earlier this season.
