Texans | Jonathan Grimes to hit market

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 14:28:29 -0800

Houston Texans impending free-agent RB Jonathan Grimes will become a free agent Wednesday, March 9. Grimes and the Texans worked on a deal but an agreement could not be reached.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes will be an under-the-radar free-agent running back in this year's market. He played well last season when Arian Foster was injured and is a threat in the passing game. He should be on your radar in PPR leagues.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes finds end zone

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:34:04 -0800

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes rushed four times for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he added four receptions for 28 yards and another score. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes and Alfred Blue were a nice fire-and-ice combination in the Houston backfield in the regular season finale. Grimes has a little more fantasy appeal heading into the playoffs due to his versatility, especially his pass-catching ability out of the backfield.

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 | Jonathan Grimes runs for 33 yards

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 21:41:49 -0800

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes carried six times for 33 yards in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 16. Grimes also added a 12-yard reception.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes totaled 45 yards from scrimmage and could see more touches going forward since Alfred Blue has been mostly ineffective since Arian Foster went down. Still, Grimes has a long way to go before trusting him in FantasyScore.

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 | 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.
