Polk runs with determination and balance. The former high school receiver has excellent hands for a runner with lead back size. He'll begin the season as a contributor, but there's a chance he can out-perform Alfred Blue.

Summary

Chris Polk has had a few brief moments of success in his three year career with the Eagles, mostly as a third string back and special teams performer. He signed with the Texans in the offseason hoping to provide a decent option for the running game if he is called upon. The training camp injury to Arian Foster (groin) has opened up an opportunity in the Texans rushing attack that Polk will be battling for. Expect him to compete with Alfred Blue in addition to veteran Jonathan Grimes. The Houston running game could rely on one lead back, but the odds point to a more balanced, committee or hot-hand approach. Polk's fantasy value has climbed recently, but make no mistake, even with Foster the Texans offense was considered average at best. Embrace the fantasy potential, but don't expect a Top 20 opportunity to emerge in the Texans backfield. (August 4)
