2018 Fantasy Outlook
Foster erased the memory of his impressive rookie campaign when a litany of legal issues stemming from his behavior off the field came to light this offseason. Just when it looked like the linebacker's career with San Francisco would come to screeching halt, his accuser made a statement saying that she had fabricated domestic assault allegations, which led to those charges being dropped by the Santa Clara court system. That development may have saved his career, and Foster is now expected to break camp with the 49ers after all. He isn't completely out of hot water, as the league did issue a two-game suspension for violations of the policies on personal conduct and substances of abuse. The short ban hurts his stock in IDP formats, but it's tough to argue against Foster's talent after he made 72 tackles in 10 games while quickly becoming the leader of a young 49ers defense.

The NFL has reinstated Foster without any suspension, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Foster is immediately eligible to participate in all team activities but will need to pay a fine of two game checks. The NFL released a statement Friday afternoon saying evidence in its investigation didn't support a previous finding that Foster had violated the league's personal conduct policy during a November incident in the Tampa area. The 2017 first-round pick was released by the 49ers shortly after his Nov. 24 arrest for a charge of domestic battery. Washington claimed the linebacker off waivers two days later and he then spent the rest of 2018 on the commissioner's exempt list.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Foster was a consensus top-10 prospect in the 2017 draft, but fell toward the end of the first round due to shoulder injury concerns. The 49ers traded up from the second round to get him, and as a result a starting role should be within reach. Foster is a rangy player who figures to play outside in San Francisco's 4-3, and while a true three-down role isn't guaranteed, a season-ending injury to Malcolm Smith has opened a path to a regular role right out of the gates, which puts the rookie on the map in IDP leagues.
