Texans' Alfred Blue: Four snaps in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blue had one carry for two yards in Houston's 34-16 loss to New England in Saturday's divisional-round playoff game.

Blue played just four offensive snaps against the Patriots and just nine in Houston's two playoff games. He was effective in spurts for the Texans, rushing 100 times for 420 yards and one touchdown this season, but he's clearly a backup and will not be a premier back in 2017. We saw that he wasn't an effective lead back in 2015, so it's unlikely the Texans would go that way should Lamar Miller not be in a position to top the depth chart.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Quiet in regular season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue had 28 yards on 11 carries, and caught three of four targets for 12 yards Sunday in Tennessee.

Blue got the start with Lamar Miller (ankle) out, but split carries with Jonathan Grimes. He finishes the regular season with 420 yards and one touchdown on 100 carries. Miller is expected back for next week's playoff game, so Blue will likely return to a reserve role for that one.

Texans' Alfred Blue: In line to start in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue is expected to start at running back in Sunday's matchup with the Titans.

The playoff-bound Texans have already ruled out Lamar Miller (ankle) for Week 17, so Blue will have a great chance at building on his season-best performance last Sunday against the Bengals, during which he accrued 73 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. Blue isn't a dynamic runner by any means, but given that he seems to have a fairly safe path to steady volume in the regular-season finale -- which most starting running backs around the NFL can't say -- he'll make for a worthy lineup option in leagues that are still in the midst of the fantasy playoffs.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Season-high 73 yards in Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blue filled in for the injured Lamar Miller (ankle) and had 73 yards rushing on 21 carries, including a 24-yard touchdown run, in Houston's 12-10 win over Cincinnati on Saturday. He added four catches for 17 yards.

Houston's game plan was designed to rely on the ground attack behind Blue, who had season highs in yards and carries. However, he was stymied in the first half, as the Bengals weren't particularly worried about quarterback Tom Savage beating them. When Houston switched to a no-huddle offense to start the second half, Savage was more effective, and Blue was able to exceed his fantasy projections. With the win, Houston clinched the AFC South, and can afford to let Miller heal up for another week. Therefore, Blue could be the main back once again in Week 17 against the Titans.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue will start at running back Saturday against the Bengals.

Blue tallied just one carry in Week 15, but he will play a far more prominent role in Week 16 with Lamar Miller (ankle) unable to go. Blue will square off against a Cincinnati defense that allowed opposing running backs to find paydirt just twice over the last six games.
