Texans' Alfred Blue: Logs majority of backfield snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue carried nine times for eight yards and played 77 percent of Houston's offensive snaps in Saturday's 29-22 win over the Jets.

Blue was given an expanded role after Lamar Miller (ankle) left the game midway through the first quarter. The injury to Miller is not considered major, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, but we need to see how he responds in the coming days as the Texans turn their gaze to Week 16's road game in Philadelphia. Should Miller be impacted next week, Blue is the logical replacement as the starting running back.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Scores first TD since Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts.

After both teams stalled on their first two possessions, the Texans took the ball a third time and engineered an 82-yard drive that culminated in Blue's 3-yard touchdown run. It was his first carry inside the 5-yard line since Week 6 and first touchdown since the opening week. Depending on how Houston wants to use D'Onta Foreman in Week 15 against the Jets and beyond, Sunday might have been Blue's last chance as the No. 2 back.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Double-digit carries again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue rushed 13 times for a season-high 54 yards in Sunday's 29-13 win over the Browns.

Houston trails only Seattle in running plays called, so there's lots of work for Blue as the No. 2 back behind Lamar Miller. He hit double-digit carries for the fourth time in five games, but he hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. The running game has fueled the Texans' nine-game winning streak, and they may not want to muck it up by forcing D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) into the mix ahead of Blue.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Produces season-high rushing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue carried 13 times for a season-high 49 rushing yards while catching his lone target for another 13 yards in Monday's 34-17 win over the Titans.

The Texans once again favored the ground attack, calling 34 runs to 24 passes. That's been their preferred formula since quarterback Deshaun Watson sustained rib and lung injuries earlier this season. That run-pass mix has led to double-digit touches for Blue, who averages 11.6 carries/receptions per game. However, his usage will be impacted when the Texans eventually activate D'Onta Foreman (Achilles), who is entering the third week of a three-week rehab window.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Gains 46 yards in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue rushed eight times for 46 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over Washington.

The 46 yards tied his season high, which came in Week 5 when he started for an injured Lamar Miller. With the Texans shifting focus to a more run-oriented offense, there are opportunities for Blue every week -- he averages 10 carries per game -- but he has just one touchdown. Until he starts getting carries inside the 5-yard-line, Blue is a nice-to-have backup for bye weeks.
