Not crazy at all!  Houston has great match ups and with a rookier QB will most likley run the ball 70% or more of the time.  Foster has to have relief.  Wouldn't surprise me that Foster got 25 carrries each game and Tate got close to 20.  You other options aren't bad, but all have issues.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D

I don't think its crazy either. I think he should be a good play the rest of the year. Great matchups and the Texans won't wan't to burn out Foster before the playoffs.

I'd ride with Tate. Seems like your best available choice given the great match ups.
