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.

Texans | Three Texans have full practice

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:22:09 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) and TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) were full participants in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0%) are kind of a crapshoot when they're both active. Polk has more value in PPR scoring formats like FantasyScore, and he's pretty cheap, but neither should be overlooked in a favorable matchup with the Indianapolis Colts. Ryan Griffin ($1,700, 3.4%) could be a safety blanket for T.J. Yates this week; he's in sleeper tight end territory.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes leads Houston RBs

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:48:42 -0800

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes ran seven times for 53 yards in the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots, leading the Houston running backs. RB Chris Polk ran 11 times for 34 yards while RB Alfred Blue was active but did not see any touches.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes appears to be the most dynamic running back heading into Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts, but neither of the trio is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk are both active

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 16:35:15 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (back) and RB Chris Polk (knee) are each active for the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Blue will see a bulk of the carries with Chris Polk, who is also active. Each should only be considered as low-end RB2 or flex FantasyScore options.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 16:08:45 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 11, and are probable for Week 14 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots have struggled to stop the run during their recent losing streak, making Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) somewhat intriguing as FantasyScore sleepers.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 16:48:11 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (back) and RB Chris Polk (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should both see playing time against the New England Patriots this week. Neither player is a great option for owners, so owners should be able to find other options to use.

Texans | Alfred Blue, Chris Polk practice in full

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 19:50:15 -0800

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (back) and Chris Polk (knee) were each able to practice fully Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) are not recommended FantasyScore options against the Patriots, who rank 11th in the NFL against the rush by allowing just 99.8 yards per game.

Texans | Three Houston players probable

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 12:46:25 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion), RB Chris Polk (knee, hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer ($6,600, 13.2% of cap), Polk ($2,500, 5.0%) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0%) all have really good matchups against the New Orleans Saints this week. Polk and Washington are too unreliable to consider starting, but Hoyer makes for a nice sleeper at quarterback as the Saints have allowed a league-high 28 touchdown passes to quarterbacks in 2015.

Texans | Three Texans fully practice Thursday

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 16:22:37 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion), RB Chris Polk (knee, hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: All three of these guys have really good matchups against one of the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year in the New Orleans Saints. Polk and Washington aren't too reliable, though, but Hoyer could be a nice sleeper play on FantasyScore in Week 12 as the Saints have allowed a league-high 28 touchdown passes to quarterbacks this year.

Texans | Chris Polk inactive

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 09:12:00 -0800

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is inactive for Week 11's game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: It was previously believed that Polk ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) would be active versus the Jets. Alfred Blue ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Jonathan Grimes ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will split time in the Houston backfield this afternoon, although neither player is a recommended FantasyScore option.

Texans | Chris Polk expected to play

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 08:05:56 -0800

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) had just four carries for 14 yards in Week 10's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and isn't a great FantasyScore choice. Alfred Blue ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Jonathan Grimes ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to see the bulk of the carries for Houston but neither of them is a viable fantasy option either, especially against a Jets team that has allowed the fewest rushing yards in the league.

Texans | Chris Polk probable

Sat, 14 Nov 2015 12:46:32 -0800

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) is listed as probable against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) may see more playing time with Arian Foster out for the year, but he's not a reliable enough player to seriously consider for FantasyScore lineups.

Texans | Chris Polk, Cecil Shorts full go

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:07:15 -0800

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is a solid PPR receiver when he's healthy and should be given a good look on FantasyScore in his return to the field. Polk ($3,500, 7.0%) has more value in PPR scoring formats, too, but he's done next to nothing lately and should probably be avoided.

Texans | Chris Polk probable for Week 8

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 15:06:42 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 30, and is probable for Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Jonathan Grimes will now fight for scraps behind Alfred Blue with Arian Foster done for the season. The Titans surprisingly allow the third-fewest PPR points to running backs this year, making Polk a stab in the dark on FantasyScore.

Texans | Chris Polk has full practice

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 13:16:23 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) was a full participant in practice again Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Polk should more playing time, especially on passing downs, with Arian Foster out for the season. He's not a bad sleeper pick on FantasyScore at $3,700 (7.4% of cap).

Texans | Chris Polk puts in full practice

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 16:05:47 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Polk's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) fantasy value is on the rise with Arian Foster done for the year. The Texans are expected to use a committee backfield, but Alfred Blue ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is the likely leader for the majority of touches and is the better fantasy play.

Texans | Alfred Blue part of committee?

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 01:34:02 -0700

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (toe) is feeling better after battling a toe injury, and he is likely to lead a committee-based approach at running back with RB Chris Polk and RB Jonathan Grimes in the wake of the season-ending injury to Arian Foster (Achilles').

Fantasy Tip: When Foster missed the start of the season, Blue ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) delivered duds in Week 1 and Week 2 before tallying 139 yards in a score and Week 3. He isn't the type of back you start every week at FantasyScore, but he could be a solid source of cap relief against weaker opponents.

Texans | Houston unlikely to add RB

Tue, 27 Oct 2015 06:32:16 -0700

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk will handle the running back duties moving forward, because the team is not planning to sign another running back with RB Arian Foster (Achilles') being placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Blue probably will receive most of the carries at this point with Grimes and Polk also receiving some playing time. Owners may want to avoid the situation for at least a week to see how the team uses them in the offense.

Texans | Chris Polk to see more touches

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 15:39:08 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk is expected to see more responsibilities in the offense following the loss of RB Arian Foster (Achilles') for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is expected to see more touches following the loss of Foster, but it's unclear what the split will be between he and Alfred Blue ($2,000, 4.0% of cap). Right now in FantasyScore, the best guess is that Blue will see more carries, but that's not yet been made official.

Texans | All Houston RBs practice in full

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 15:26:22 -0700

Houston Astros RBs Arian Foster (groin), Alfred Blue (toe), Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) and Chris Polk (knee) were all full participants in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) is the only Houston runner worth considering on FantasyScore now that he appears to be back to full health. He had 18 carries and another five catches last week and should see another healthy workload against the Miami Dolphins this week. Foster is typically a safe running back pick in point-per-reception formats like FantasyScore.

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 13:38:41 -0700

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue (toe), Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) and Chris Polk (knee) were full participants in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), Grimes ($2,000, 4.0%) and Polk ($2,000, 4.0%) have not produced much since Arian Foster returned to the field. None of them should be rostered unless Foster is injured.

Texans | Chris Polk questionable

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 12:57:05 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be a sneaky sleeper play if he is able to play Thursday night. Keep in mind, however, that Arian Foster is back, so Polk may not see as much playing time as he did in previous weeks.

Texans | Chris Polk sits out of practice

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:56:48 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) scored his first touchdown of the season last week, even with Arian Foster returning to action. Polk's volume of play isn't very high from week-to-week, however. He's not a reliable option in seasonal leagues or daily leagues.

Texans | Running game lacking for Houston

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:48:44 -0700

Houston Texans RBs Alfred Blue, Chris Polk, Jonathan Grimes and the Texans' offense rank 24th in the NFL with 44 rushing attempts so far this year. They lead the league at 105 pass attempts.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Arian Foster being absent is the key reason for their struggles so far and why Houston has had to pass frequently. The Texans' defense hasn't been what they were expected to be yet, either. The rush attempts should increase once Foster returns, but none of Houston's running backs should be in starting fantasy lineups until Foster comes back.

Texans | Alfred Blue shares the load

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 18:12:33 -0700

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue led the team with nine carries for 42 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 13, but RB Jonathan Grimes had six carries and RB Chris Polk had five carries.

Fantasy Tip: Blue ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should remain the starter as long as Arian Foster is out, but he may not be the workhorse he was expected to be. Houston's early deficit may have also contributed to his lighter workload, but for now, consider him a risky sleeper at FantasyScore.

Texans | Chris Polk returns to practice

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 07:43:34 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 8, after missing some time because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Polk is expected to see more playing time while Arian Foster is out of the lineup. Owners should monitor his work during the preseason to see what he role will be during the season. Polk could be middle- to late-round option depending on his playing time.

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue is expected to take over the first-team duties with RB Arian Foster (groin) expected to miss some time in the regular season. RBs Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk could also see more action in the backfield with Foster injured.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes filled in as the third-down back with Foster injured for three games last year, so his workload will certainly increase. He has late value only in point-per-reception leagues. Blue has more in him than his 3.1-yards-per-carry average from 2014, but he's nothing more than a midround flier right now.

Texans | Chris Polk recovering

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:33:19 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is dealing with a minor hamstring injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Polk could be used more now that Arian Foster is expected to miss a good amount of time with upcoming groin surgery. He'll still back up Alfred Blue, but Polk may turn into a deep sleeper. He scored four times on just 46 attempts last season.
