Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been a pleasant surprise this season; he has gone from being a relative unknown to leading the league in rushing. But he hasn't been the only surprise performer. With five weeks down and 12 to go, let's see where one man thinks Foster ranks among the biggest fantasy football surprises of the 2010 campaign, and how the rest of the season is likely to go for those players.

We'll start things off with the season's No. 5 surprise, and count things down from there. Since my original list of surprises went more than 20 deep, plenty of high-scoring options obviously had to be left out. And by the way, we're keeping things positive here. Let's not discuss the "not-so-fun" surprises, disappointments such as DeAngelo Williams, Greg Jennings and Matt Schaub. We'll have plenty of time down the road for that.
