Prioritizing running backs on the waiver wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/14) The running back position has been a tough one to pin down for Fantasy owners this season, with so many big names struggling -- if they aren't out of action entirely. With this in mind, it is more important than ever to hit on your waiver-wire pickups. Jamey Eisenberg's top waiver-wire targets at the running back position are as follows:

The Vikings' Jerick McKinnon, The Ravens' Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, the Browns' Isaiah Crowell and the Texans' Alfred Blue. Additionally, Andre Williams of the Giants, Darrin Reaves of the Panthers and Denard Robinson of the Jaguars are mentioned as possible options worth targeting.

If you need a roster spot, consider dropping Adrian Peterson, DeAngelo Williams and Darren McFadden this week. 

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. 

Alfred Blue finds little room in running game in Week 4
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) Texans running back Alfred Blue gained just nine yards on nine carries while adding 16 yards on two receptions in his team's 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4.

Though starter Arian Foster was active after being labeled a game-time decision, Blue saw plenty of work, especially in the second half, as Foster didn't have a carry in the last 24 minutes of game action. However, neither running back could do much against the Bills' front, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick leading the team in rushing yards. Blue will head to Dallas for a Week 5 matchup with the Cowboys.

Last-minute Arian Foster reactions
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) By all indications, Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to play through his hamstring injury in Week 4 against the Bills Sunday, and he is not expected to have any limitations.

Fantasy owners who have been waiting for news of Foster's status should take this as good news. Barring a last-minute setback that leaves Foster inactive prior to game-time, he should probably be moved into all lineups for Week 4, even against a Bills team that is allowing just 12.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. According to the Houston Chronicle, Foster is expected to get a full workload.  

Additionally, Alfred Blue seems likely to see a steep decline in his playing time -- and he only had 13 carries with Foster out. Sit him.  

What to do if Arian Foster plays Sunday?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/14) The Texans have running back Arian Foster as a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Bills, which makes relying on any of their backs difficult for Week 4.

The Texans and Bills kick off at 1:00 pm Sunday, with inactives to be reported about 90 minutes before kickoff. So, you'll have to make sure you are around then if you plan on having Foster or Alfred Blue in your starting lineup this Sunday. Sorry to all our West Coast friends who might want to sleep in.

If Foster is active, you'll almost certainly want to sit Blue, unless you have been decimated by injuries. Even with Foster out in Week 3, Blue played just 51 percent of the team's snaps, and was a non-factor on passing downs. Foster should likely be considered a low-end starting option if he takes the field, given how easy it might be for him to suffer an aggravation of this injury.
