Alfred Blue Fantasy Football News 2018

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.

The Texans on Tuesday activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He had been on it since summer, while working back from last November's torn Achilles' tendon. It's hard to envision Foreman playing a big role in fantasy lineups over the final 3 weeks of most seasons, but he's at least worth an add as a handcuff to Lamar Miller. Houston would have little reason to bring Foreman back to the active roster at all unless it planned to give him a decent role.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Texans expect RB D'Onta Foreman to return to practice next week. Foreman has been on the PUP list all season, coming off the Achilles' tear that cut his 2017 short. He'll have 3 weeks to get activated or placed on IR. We'll see how the 2nd-year RB progresses. Houston starter Lamar Miller has surged over the past 2 weeks, though, and doesn't look quite as susceptible to the potential Foreman challenge as he did a few weeks ago.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He figures to form a committee backfield with Alfred Blue against the Bills on Sunday, making both guys just RB3 or flex options.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) put in a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll return for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller figures to form a committee with Alfred Blue, making both guys just RB3/Flex plays.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that RB Lamar Miller (chest) is expected back for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller was active as an emergency option only last night and didn't end up playing. He might return to a committee backfield with Alfred Blue -- and will also need to contend with D'Onta Foreman's eventual return.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) is "not likely to play" against the Cowboys tonight, despite being active, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It sounds like Miller is dressed as an emergency option only. He should not be in fantasy lineups. Alfred Blue will carry the load in Houston's backfield, making him a volume-based fantasy play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Texans are "pessimistic" about RB Lamar Miller's chances of playing Sunday night against the Cowboys. He's officially questionable with a chest injury. Alfred Blue would start if Miller's out.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien labeled RB Lamar Miller (chest) a game-time decision for Sunday night's tilt with the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week. It puts fantasy owners in a tough spot with the late kickoff. If you're hoping to start Miller, you need to have backup RB Alfred Blue rostered as insurance. Your best bet is probably to avoid this unproductive backfield.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) isn’t listed on the final injury report and will play against the Jaguars on Sunday. He’s not a fantasy option but figures to steal a handful of touches from RB Lamar Miller.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. With only RB Andre Ellington behind him, RB Lamar Miller is a lock to dominate carries in the plus matchup.

Texans RB Alfred Blue suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans. His last carry came about midway through the 3rd quarter. Missing further time would leave the Houston backfield to Lamar Miller and Andre Ellington, who logged 2 carries and 6 targets in his Houston debut. Ellington finished the game playing wideout after WR Braxton Miller and WR Bruce Ellington also left with injuries.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman will continue handling backfield duties for Houston.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. HC Bill O’Brien labeled him “doubtful” on Friday, though. Look for Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman to handle backfield duties again for Houston.

Texans RB Alfred Blue returned to practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a high ankle sprain in late August. He put in a limited workout, but the Houston Chronicle reports that Blue expects to play Sunday at New England. He's not a fantasy notable himself, but Blue's situation will be worth watching for anyone getting excited about Texans rooke RB D'Onta Foreman after his 12-carry Week 2. Blue, of course, served as Lamar Miller's primary backup last season and is in his 4th year with the team.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Rookie D’Onta Foreman figures to serve as the #2 RB, but Lamar Miller will dominate backfield work.

Texans RB Alfred Blue suffered a high-ankle sprain in the team's 2nd preseason game, according to insider Aaron Wilson. "Hope is he'll be able to return soon," Wilson adds. High-ankle sprains are usually 4+ week injuries, so we're marking Blue down as doubtful for Week 1. He had been running as Houston's #2 RB, but this injury opens the door for rookie D'Onta Foreman.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. Houston has nothing to play for in the season finale and will hope to get Miller healthy for the playoff opener. Alfred Blue will serve as the lead back this weekend and is a fine bet for 20+ touches.
