Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried 11 times for 40 yards in the Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders, while RB Jonathan Grimes had just three carries for nine yards. Neither player had a reception.
Fantasy Tip: Blue appears to have unofficially moved ahead of Grimes on the depth chart behind Arian Foster. However, neither is particularly useful from a fantasy perspective unless Foster goes down with a long-term injury.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will "get the bulk of the playing time" in Week 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Jonathan Grimes, Alfred Blue and Ronnie Brown will be mixed in for certain situations. It'll be Foster's first game action -- regulation or exhibition -- since his season-ending back injury in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: There really isn't much of a FantasyScore discount with his $7,800 price (15.6% of your cap), but it's a decent matchup, so it's not a terrible play. How he holds up after this game may dictate his workload over the next few weeks.

Houston Texans RB Andre Brown is in a tough spot to make the team right now, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. It looks like RBs Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue are currently ahead of Brown in the running back pecking order.
Fantasy Tip: Brown didn't even see action in the team's first preseason game this weekend, and he's unlikely to see many repetitions moving forward to prove he deserves a spot. As it sits right now, Brown shouldn't be drafted anywhere.

"I usually just hand the ball to the (referee). I told him … 'I want to keep this one,' " said Grimes, who rushed 16 times and caught all six of his targeted passes. "It was my first one and I wanted to bring that home to my pops."

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Forsett will rotate into the game to spell starting RB Arian Foster the same way Tate normally does. Forsett has averaged 5.2 yards per carry this year. Kubiak went on to say he has a ton of confidence in Forsett. "He'll basically take Ben's spot," Kubiak noted.
