Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 12:37:10 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (calf) and RB Chris Polk (knee) are listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 9. Polk fully participated in the team's walkthrough Friday, Jan. 8, while Blue was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) probably will receive a majority of the carries against the Chiefs because he has played well over the last few games. He will be facing a tough Chiefs defense but could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore. Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will receive a handful of touches during the game but is not a strong fantasy option.

Texans | Full practice for three Texans

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:24:25 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Texans will have their three top wide receivers playing together in the playoffs, assuming Nate Washington is good to go. Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is obviously a top wide receiver play this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Shorts ($3,700, 7.4%) is a decent sleeper, especially for a PPR scoring format like FantasyScore. As for Polk, he may not be utilized enough with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes also in the mix, so there are better options at running back than him.

Texans | Full practice for Chris Polk

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 13:44:03 -0800

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Polk hasn't been utilized much this season aside from a double-digit carry game here and there. He has next to no value with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes healthy and facing a top-tier rush defense in the Kansas City Chiefs.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk probable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 14:41:09 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (calf) and RB Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and are listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Chris Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should both receive some carries during the game, but Blue may be the more valuable option for fantasy owners.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 15:36:10 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (calf) and RB Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) shared carries in the last game but neither posted more than 45 yards on the ground. They should continue to share playing time in the backfield but are not great options for fantasy owners.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk practicing

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:33:40 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (calf) and Chris Polk (knee) both fully practiced Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Jacksonville Jaguars have proven to be a top-10 PPR fantasy matchup for running backs this year, so Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) looks like a sneaky sleeper pick on FantasyScore as the leading rusher in this backfield. Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a deep sleeper if you're looking to save even more money.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk probable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 17:14:30 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (back) and RB Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and are listed as probable for the Week 16 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be able to play this week with Blue probably receiving a majority of the carries. Blue should be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore, but Polk likely can be passed over by owners.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk practice

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 15:15:16 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) led the team in rushing last week and posted 107 rushing yards. Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) received only four carries during the game. Blue should continue to see a majority of the carries and could be a decent starting option on FantasyScore. Owners probably can avoid Polk in all leagues.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk probable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 15:13:43 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and are listed as probable for the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) probably will be more involved in the passing game between the two players with Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) also receiving some work. Both could be starting options since they have favorable matchups, but Polk is probably more valuable on FantasyScore because of his price.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk ready to go

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:43:24 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Over the last two games, Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has faded and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has had double-digit carries. The Indianapolis Colts have been a good matchup for opposing runners for much of the year, too. Both runners are worth a look as a sleeper play, with Polk being more attractive on FantasyScore for less money.
