Texans' Alfred Blue: Minimal role in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue carried twice for eight yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to the Colts.

Blue didn't get a chance to play a larger role after Indianapolis scored touchdowns on three of its first four possessions, putting the Texans in desperate comeback mode early. That meant shelving the ground game in favor of a passing attack. Blue, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2019, was a valuable backup for the Texans, who played the first 12 games without D'Onta Foreman (Achilles). Foreman did not make an impact upon his return, which is unsurprising given the history of players that suffered similar injuries, so Blue remained the top backup to Lamar Miller for the final weeks of the season. The 28-year-old Blue has substantial history with the organization and could return as a depth option, depending on how Foreman responds next year.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Small role in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue had three carries for 12 yards and caught two of three targets for another 12 yards in Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jaguars.

Blue's involvement was cut back with the return of Lamar Miller, but it's notable that the Texans didn't activate D'Onta Foreman for Week 17. That suggests Blue will be the top backup in the first round of the playoffs next Saturday at 4:35 pm, when Houston hosts Indianapolis in the AFC Wild Card Round.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Held to 40 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue rushed four times for 14 yards and caught four of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Eagles.

The Texans simply couldn't get much done on the ground as Deshaun Watson had more than three times as many rushing yards as the rest of Houston's backfield combined on the day. Blue drew the start but split touches evenly with D'Onta Foreman and saw three fewer carries. The 27-year-old will probably be relegated to third on the Texans' depth chart if Lamar Miller (ankle) is healthy for Week 17 at home against the Jaguars.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Expected to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue is expected to start after Lamar Miller (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Eagles.

Saturday's injury designation doesn't necessarily mean Blue will get the majority of the carries, however, as D'Onta Foreman looms as a potential option out of the Texans backfield. That's in part due to the fact Blue failed to make much of an impact Week 15 after Miller left the game following the team's first possession, carrying the ball nine times for just six yards while playing in 77 percent of the offensive snaps. Foreman, who was activated off the PUP list Dec. 4, was a healthy inactive last week, but it would be a genuine surprise to see him held out in Week 16 given Miller's lack of availability. As such, fantasy owners eager to pick up the next waiver wire star will need to monitor the news coming out of Houston in the coming days to see which of the two backs is the one to own.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Possible fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue will start at running back if Lamar Miller (ankle) is unavailable Week 16 against the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Miller has made steady progress since spraining his ankle against the Jets last week, so there's a chance he'll be ready to go Sunday, but head coach Bill O'Brien remains noncommittal. In the event Miller is inactive, Blue would likely get the call over D'Onta Foreman, who could be active for the first time this year following his recovery from a ruptured Achilles' tendon.
