Description: Houston running back Jonathan Grimes rushed just three times for nine yards in Week 2 after a one-carry Week 1.
Insight: It appears that Alfred Blue has jumped over Grimes for the "coveted" handcuff role to oft-injured Foster. Adjust your roster accordingly.

Description: Houston running back Jonathan Grimes put forth a solid argument for his being the No. 2 back with 42 yards rushing on nine carries, three catches for 25 yards and a special teams touchdown.
Insight: The winner of the battle for a backup spot to Arian Foster is a "must-handcuff" as Foster, who is already dealing with a hamstring injury, has missed 11 games over the past three years.

Description: The Houston Chronicle reported Monday afternoon that Jonathan Grimes was now the frontrunner for the Texans' backup running back job and just a few hours later the team released Andre Brown and Dennis Johnson.
Insight: It was assumed Brown would get the job as Ben Tate's replacement due to his past experience as New York's starter, but he didn't play in the preseason opener and was cut two days later. Grimes is the necessary handcuff to Arian Foster, who is dealing with a hamstring injury already and missed 11 games the past three years.

Description: It appears that Jonathan Grimes has the lead in the battle for backup to oft-injured Arian Foster, according to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The role has been useful to fantasy owners with Foster missing 11 games over the past three seasons. There's still three weeks to go, however, and Andre Brown could win the handcuff job.

Description: The Texans have named Jonathan Grimes the starting running back for Week 17 against the Titans.
Insight: Deji Karim suffered a broken collarbone in Week 16 and Dennis Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game due to a hip injury. Even if Johnson plays, Grimes will start.
