Texans' Alfred Blue: Flirts with 100-yard mark versus Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfred Blue gained 99 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's 30-0 loss to the Chiefs. He was unable to bring in his only target in the passing game.

The second-year back flirted with the 100-yard mark against a stout Chiefs defensive front, although the majority of his production on the day came on a 50-yard burst in the first half. Blue saw his playing time wane as the Houston Texans got further and further behind, limiting what could've been an even better day. Blue flashed at times as the fill-in for the injured Arian Foster this season, but his best-case scenario heading into next season will see him as the top backup to the latter.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfred Blue (calf) is listed as active Saturday against the Chiefs.

Acting as the Houston Texans ' No. 1 back in the last three games, Blue racked up 56 rushes for 254 yards (4.5 YPC) and two catches for seven yards. That success may be difficult to match against a Kansas City defense that finished the season as the eighth-ranked run defense.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Listed as probable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfred Blue (calf) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs.

Blue, who finished up the regular season by topping the 100-yard rushing mark in two of the last Houston Texans ' last three games, is thus on track to continue to head the team's ground game as the postseason starts. In the mix for complementary work in that area are Chris Polk, Jonathan Grimes and Akeem Hunt.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Limited participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blue (calf) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

Blue finished up the regular season on a high note, rushing for more than 100 yards in two of the last three games. We suspect the Texans will focus on the run in Saturday's playoff game against Kansas City, as long as the score remains close. Houston's running attack had been underwhelming early in the season, but it finished strong, averaging 135 yards per game over the final seven contests. When the Texans made their second-half run to the division title, the ground game was a big part of it.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Big game helps Texans into playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfred Blue gained 102 yards on 21 carries and caught his only target for another two yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

The second-year back came up big in a game the Houston Texans needed to sneak into the playoffs, topping the 100-yard mark for the second time in the last three weeks. These types of performances will be essential to any sort of sustained playoff run the Texans are likely to make, and Sunday's showing bodes well ahead of the franchise's return to the tournament. Blue has been inconsistent as the feature back this season, but he could be hitting his stride at just the right time.
