Jonathan Grimes looks solid in big action
by Chris Towers |

Texans running back Jonathan Grimes thrived in his first extended action in Week 17, topping 100 all-purpose yards in a 16-10 loss to the Titans.

Grimes didn't have much success running the ball, finishing with just 50 yards despite 12 carries. He shined as a receiver, however, leading the team with six receptions for 76 yards. He added his first career touchdown on a 3-yard run in the first game.

Injuries pushed Grimes into action only recently, as he appeared in just the team's final two games.

Jonathan Grimes facing solid matchup in likely first start
by Chris Towers |

Texans running back Jonathan Grimes is expected to step into the starting lineup in Week 17 against the Titans, thanks to a number of injuries in the team's backfield.

Grimes, an undrafted free-agent out of College of William & Mary,  enters the week with just 29 rushing yards to his name at the NFL level. He rushed the ball five times for 23 yards last week, in his first action of the season. Though he is a total unknown, Grimes may actually find some room to succeed this week, against a vulnerable Titans defense.

The Titans have allowed 19 touchdowns by opposing running backs this season, along with 151.3 all-purpose yards per game. As a result, they are surrendering 21.2 Fantasy points per game to running backs, the fourth-worst total in the league.

Grimes has no track record of success at the NFL, so starting him represents a total roll of the dice. Still, he might surprise given such a solid matchup.

Jonathan Grimes has 23 rushing yards in loss
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Texans running back Jonathan Grimes came into Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos in relief of an injured Deji Karim, carrying the ball five times for 23 yards. All of his carries came in the fourt quarter. 

Grimes, who was signed by the Texans earlier this week, may be pressed into Week 17 duty against the Titans, as Dennis Johnson appeared to hurt his hamstring in the game, and Karim went to the locker room limping in the fourth quarter. 

Grimes is in his second year of professional football. He had two career carries before Sunday's game.
