Texans running backs mostly silent in Week 4

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) Texans running back Arian Foster was expected to receive his usual workload in his return in Week 4 against the Bills, but Alfred Blue actually ended up with more rushing attempts in the win.

Of course, that doesn't tell the whole tale. Foster was ineffective with his eight carries, as he rushed the ball for just 6 yards in the win. Blue wasn't much better, finishing with 9 yards on his nine carries. Foster did shine in the passing game, hauling in seven passes for 55 yards, to Blue's two receptions.

The interesting thing about Sunday's game was how little Jonathan Grimes figured into it. It appears as if Blue and Foster might be the tandem going forward, though it is possible Grimes saw more of the field than the standard box score might indicate.

Foster might not have been fully healthy Sunday, which could explain his somewhat limited role. With another week of rest, however, he should improve next week, which will only be bad news for Blue. He looks like just a handcuff option for Foster owners, given his lack of usage in passing downs. 

If you need a last-minute Brandon Marshall replacement...

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/14) What is a Fantasy owner to do if Brandon Marshall's lingering ankle injury forces the Bears to sit him down in Week 4?

Luckily, the Bears play at 1:00 pm EST, so we will know if Marshall is inactive by 11:30 am, giving you plenty of time to shuffle your roster.However, if you don't have any capable replacements available on your bench -- remember, six teams are on bye this week -- here are some guys you may be able to snag in free agency at the last minute to fill in for Marshall, all of whom are listed among the top-50 at their positions by Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg:

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (42 percent owned), Raiders wide receiver James Jones (68 percent), Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (29 percent), Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (66 percent), or Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings (53 percent).

If you have Marshall slotted into the flex spot, consider running backs Jerick McKinnon (19 percent) of the Vikings, Justin Forsett (63 percent) of the Ravens, Jacquizz Rodgers (19 percent) of the Falcons, Jonathan Grimes (13 percent) of the Texans, or Dexter McCluster (19 percent) of the Titans. 

Jonathan Grimes' role makes him an unappealing Fantasy add

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/14) Texans running back Jonathan Grimes saw a significant increase in his role in Week 3 with Arian Foster out, but it hardly translated to Fantasy production.

Grimes came off the bench behind Alfred Blue but played 40 percent of the team's snaps in the 30-17 loss to the Giants. Unfortunately, Grimes was used almost exclusively in passing downs and ended up touching the ball just twice. He had one carry for 5 yards and was only targeted once in the passing game as well.

If Foster is forced to miss more time, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Grimes get more of a look than he did Sunday. However, he seems to be viewed as a third-down back in Houston, leaving him on the fringes of Fantasy relevance at this point. 

Report: Arian Foster a 'longshot' to play

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/14) Texans running back Arian Foster was limited in practice all week with a hamstring injury ans is viewed as a longshot to play today against the Giants, NFL Network reported this morning. In the event he is inactive, rookie running back Alfred Blue is expected to see a lot of work with tailback Jonathan Grimes pitching in. 

The Texans inactives will be in around 11:30 a.m. ET this morning. Watch Fantasy Football Today on CBSSports.com for the latest starting at 11 a.m. ET. 

Texans get minor contributions from role players in Week 2

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/14) The Texans received minor contributions from several role players in a Week 2 win over the Raiders.

In the passing game, tight end Garrett Graham and Damaris Johnson were each limited to one catch on one target. Graham caught a 26-yard pass in the first quarter, and Johnson caught a 4-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick on the opening drive. Jonathan Grimes rushed for 9 yards on three carries, while Ronnie Brown gained 2 yards on three carries.
