Football season starts on Wednesday, Sep. 5, and that means millions of armchair general managers are scrambling to get their fantasy football teams ready. Fans in the Houston area do not have to go very far to find the player who should be on top of their draft boards. Texans running back Arian Foster tops the list at Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy sports blog.

Foster is the top running back in the top tier of position rankings at Fake Teams.

I'm not saying Arian is number one. Umm sorry I lied. He's number one, two, three, four and five.

For most, Foster will be the first player off the board, above the quarterbacks, receivers and all the other running backs out there. What makes Foster so special is his role as the center piece of the Texans' offense. He runs the ball and catches passes, not to mention that he scores touchdowns.

A complete list of play and position rankings from Fake Teams is here. For more fantasy news and analysis check out SB Nation's fantasy football hub. For more on Foster and the Texans, check out Battle Red Blog.
