Alfred Blue looks the part as a prototypical NFL running back, which is exactly why the Texans took out a flier on him.

His touches will be limited in Houston early because of a healthy return of Arian Foster but, if history tells us anything, Foster is injury prone and likely to miss a game or two from nagging injury.

Insert Blue, who’s made a great impression the last two preseason games he’s played in and showed some flashes of his days with the LSU Tigers. He’s 6’2″, 232 pounds and can get down hill in a hurry.

He’s proving to be the number two running back in Houston which means he should touch the ball even with a healthy Foster.

He falls as my deepest sleeper because by the end of 2014, he will have started at least two games and could be a great option off the waiver wire if you’re in desperate need of a running back spot filled.

If he’s available later in the season, don’t be afraid to put him on your roster.
