6 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Candidates

2. Arian Foster

Foster missed eight games in 2013, and not surprisingly the Houston Texans managed a 2-14 record without him anchoring the backfield. But back in the fold for eight of the team’s nine games so far this season, Foster sits second in the league in rushing with 822 yards on 161 yards and seven touchdowns.

With the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett and possibly even Tom Savage starting under center in Houston this season, Foster is the only building block this offense has. When healthy, he’s been the team’s driving force as both a runner and pass-catcher out of the backfield.
