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.

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 | Jonathan Grimes will not play

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:11:24 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7, and has been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Arian Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) probably will receive more work in Week 5 than he did in the last game and could be starting option for owners. Alfred Blue ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be the No. 2 running back and could be a flex option if he sees solid playing time.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes doesn't practice

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:06:50 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) does have some value in PPR leagues, but he just doesn't see the field enough to be warranted as a starting option, especially with Arian Foster now back in the mix.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes misses walkthrough

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:35:26 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes could miss another game if he does not return to practice at some point in the next two days. Grimes likely would not see much playing time if he is active Thursday, Oct. 8, and should be avoided.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes ruled out

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 16:15:15 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) likely would start if Arian Foster misses the game and probably would see a decent amount of work even if Foster does play. It is a favorable matchup for Blue because the Falcons struggle against opposing running backs. Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could also be a solid option if he is active because he could see more touches.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes sits again

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 15:37:07 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Grimes (knee) may not be able to play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. Owners probably should avoid Grimes even if he is active for the game.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes misses practice

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:42:43 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be a decent sleeper this week if Arian Foster does not play. He is a threat in the passing game and the Texans could very well be playing from behind throughout their Week 4 contest with the Atlanta Falcons.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes a game-time decision

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 06:15:41 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) will be a game-time decision for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has received some playing time while Arian Foster is out of the lineup but was not posting great numbers. Owners should be able to find better options to use even if he is active for the game.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes questionable

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 13:53:51 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is questionable for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Arian Foster (groin) remains out for another week, but Grimes ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a question mark and has only eight carries in two weeks. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes doesn't practice again

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:47:30 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: If Grimes ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is unable to go and Foster doesn't play, Alfred Blue ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Chris Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would see increased playing time. None of Houston's running backs have done enough to consider starting on FantasyScore, however. Avoid them until Foster is at full health.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes does not practice

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 16:20:07 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes' ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) status for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are uncertain at this time. Grimes has rushed for only 35 yards so far this season and would not be a good fantasy option if he is active.

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 | Alfred Blue is next man up

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 16:36:01 -0700

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 | Alfred Blue sees more action

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 17:31:08 -0700

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.

Texans | O'Brien: Foster 'to play a lot'

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 08:08:26 -0700

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.

Texans | Andre Brown not a lock to make team

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:24:18 -0700

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.

Making his first-ever NFL start while filling in for Dennis Johnson, Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes rolled off team highs in rushing (50) and receiving yards (76). The 5-foot-10, 209-pound back from William & Mary also recorded the Texans' lone touchdown, via a 3-yard score with 9 minutes, 37 seconds left in the first quarter. "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 | Justin Forsett to play larger role in Week 9

Fri, 02 Nov 2012 17:00:05 -0700

Houston Texans RB Justin Forsett will serve as the team's No. 2 running back in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills because RB Ben Tate (hamstring) has been ruled out of the game. RB Jonathan Grimes, who was recently re-signed, will serve as the team's third back on the depth chart.

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.
