I'm not buying it. I'm reading all over the place today that Arian Foster is unlikely to play today (which is not surprising, I'm buying that). What I'm not buying is the talk that Alfred Blue is his backup. Blue was a 6th round pick and got some work in the preseason, but left the summer sitting third on the depth chart. In the last game, however, Blue got 11 carries (for a paltry 40 yards, 3.6 YPC) - against a crappy Raiders' squad. Now, on the strength of that data, we're putting Blue in as a starter? He's reported to be lacking in blocking skills, which will be huge today as the Texans take on the Giants. I'd say Blue gets on the field, but you can bet Grimes will get a lot more carries in this offense. Blue is likely the future, but if I'm grabbing a last minute plug in for a redraft league I'd take Grimes today.
