Believe it or not, fantasy football drafts are right around the corner. For those of you who had a brutal season like myself, the break has been been welcomed. For those who were lucky good enough to win your leagues, the new season can’t come soon enough. One recent piece of news that has seemed to rattle the fantasy football world a bit is Arian Foster’s announcement that he is going vegan.
“Officially a vegan now,” Foster wrote on Twitter last week. “We’ll see how this goes. But week one down. So far, so good. Feels wonderful.”
Some obvious questions come to mind when you hear that a player has cut dairy, meat and fish out of their diet. Will he be in the same physical condition he has been over the past few years? Will Foster still be able to run through people? Will the new diet affect his overall conditioning? Has he gone soft? Considering Foster is expected to go in the first round of all standard scoring fantasy drafts once again, you can understand why people are curious.
Foster has made it clear in the past that he doesn’t think very highly of his fantasy football owners, so I doubt he’s concerned with what they think about his vegan diet. As far as losing weight on is concerned, Prince Fielder once went vegetarian for a few months and it didn’t seem to affect him. Foster is a professional, so it’s probably safe to assume he’s not going to make any type of lifestyle change that will affect his status as one of the best backs in the league. He just might eat more wheat grass.
