Texans | Chris Polk returns to practice

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 07:43:34 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 8, after missing some time because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Polk is expected to see more playing time while Arian Foster is out of the lineup. Owners should monitor his work during the preseason to see what he role will be during the season. Polk could be middle- to late-round option depending on his playing time.

Texans | Alfred Blue is next man up

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 16:36:01 -0700

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue is expected to take over the first-team duties with RB Arian Foster (groin) expected to miss some time in the regular season. RBs Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk could also see more action in the backfield with Foster injured.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes filled in as the third-down back with Foster injured for three games last year, so his workload will certainly increase. He has late value only in point-per-reception leagues. Blue has more in him than his 3.1-yards-per-carry average from 2014, but he's nothing more than a midround flier right now.

Texans | Chris Polk recovering

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:33:19 -0700

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (hamstring) is dealing with a minor hamstring injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Polk could be used more now that Arian Foster is expected to miss a good amount of time with upcoming groin surgery. He'll still back up Alfred Blue, but Polk may turn into a deep sleeper. He scored four times on just 46 attempts last season.

Eagles | PHI rescinds Chris Polk's tender

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:28:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent RB Chris Polk's tender offer has been rescinded by the Eagles, according to a source. Polk will become an unrestricted free agent and allowed to sign with any team.

Fantasy Tip: Polk probably will receive some interest from teams in free agency but likely will only be a backup for his next team. His fantasy value will be determined by which team he joins, but he probably will not be more than a late-round pick in all leagues.
