RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

An unheralded 2014 sixth-round pick out of LSU, Blue emerged as Arian Foster's most reliable backup last season. Now that Foster appears headed for groin surgery, opportunity knocks for Blue in 2015. Blue has nearly identical size and speed to Foster and showed similar vision and patience. The comparison ended, though, when defenders got their hands on him. While Foster is among the league's toughest backs to bring down, Blue was one of the easiest, ranking in the bottom five among running backs in touches per missed tackle. He hit holes effectively, but without Foster's burst or power, Blue wasn't able to do as much with them. Foster's increasing fragility likely will result in more work for Blue, but the Texans might look for an upgrade now that Foster is hurt again.

2014

Although Blue showed promise as a runner in his four seasons at LSU, he ended up only starting seven games in his college career, never carried the ball more than 71 times in a season, and had his junior year cut short by a knee injury. Still, the Texans saw enough to select the well-built rusher in the sixth round of this year's draft, and he'll battle with Jonathan Grimes in training camp for the right to serve as the No. 2 behind to Arian Foster.
