Chris Polk rushed 11 times for 38 yards Week 16 against the Titans.
Polk only had two carries in the first half, but he was much more involved with the Texans in clock-killing mode in the second half. Polk has been more effective than Alfred Blue most of the season, but he continues to play second fiddle to the plodder. Sun, Dec 27, 2015 05:27:00 PM

Date:

Chris Polk rushed four times for six yards in Week 15 against the Colts.

Polk started for the second straight week, but didn't get much work outside of the first quarter. He was outplayed by both Alfred Blue and Akeem Hunt. Polk shouldn't see more than 5-7 touches against the Titans in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:38:00 PM

Chris Polk had 11 carries for 34 yards in the Texans' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

He added two catches for nine yards. Polk started in place of Alfred Blue, but failed to do much with his carries. He was outplayed by Jonathan Grimes on fewer touches. Polk could draw the start again next week, but isn't more than a low-upside RB4.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 12:04:00 AM

Chris Polk rushed 12 times for 61 yards and caught his lone target for an 11-yard touchdown in the Texans' Week 13 loss to Buffalo.

One week after Alfred Blue led the Texans' RBBC with 17 carries against the Saints, Polk operated as the lead back while Jonathan Grimes (seven touches), Blue (four touches), and Akeem Hunt (two touches) mixed in behind him. None of Houston's running backs are trustworthy in fantasy leagues ahead of a Week 14 date with the Patriots.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:09:00 PM

Chris Polk rushed six times for 21 yards in Houston's Week 12 win over the Saints, adding a six-yard reception.

With Alfred Blue carrying the mail on early downs, Polk split change-up work with Jonathan Grimes, Akeem Hunt and even Cecil Shorts. Polk has no standalone fantasy value, and would remain part of a committee were Blue to go down.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:35:00 PM

Chris Polk (knee, hamstring) is probable for Week 12.

Polk will return after missing only one game. He shouldn't see more than 5-7 touches in a committee with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 06:32:00 PM

Chris Polk (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 12.

Polk was held out despite practicing on a limited basis last week. He'll return to a minor committee role, but isn't a fantasy option.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 05:20:00 PM

Texans declared RB Chris Polk, G Oday Aboushi, ILB Akeem Dent, TE Garrett Graham, QB Brian Hoyer, CB Kareem Jackson and FS Rahim Moore inactive for Week 11 against the Jets.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier today Polk (hamstring) was expected to play, so his absence is a little surprising. With Polk out, Jonathan Grimes will handle backup duties behind starter Alfred Blue. Max Bullough (shoulder/hamstring), Jadeveon Clowney (back), Jared Crick (ankle), DeAndre Hopkins (knee), Charles James (foot), Kevin Johnson (thigh), Ben Jones (thumb), Johnathan Joseph (calf), Nick Novak (thigh), Brian Peters (hamstring) and Nate Washington (hip) are all active.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 12:10:00 PM

Chris Polk (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets.

Polk sat out Wednesday's practice with a minor hamstring issue but returned a day later. In two games since Arian Foster's season-ending Achilles injury, Polk has been out-touched by Alfred Blue 32 to 13. Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere for running back help.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 09:04:00 AM

Chris Polk (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Jets.

He returned to a limited practice on Thursday, but was on the exercise bike Friday. Even with Arian Foster out of the lineup the last two games, Polk hasn’t been much of a factor. He’s not a fantasy option.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 03:32:00 PM

Chris Polk (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

Obviously this helps his chances of playing Sunday against the Jets. Polk was dealing with a knee injury before the hamstring issue popped up Monday against Cincinnati. He's averaged 6.5 touches in two games since Arian Foster went down with a torn Achilles'.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 03:18:00 PM

Chris Polk (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Polk played through a knee injury on Monday night, and is now dealing with a hamstring issue. He finished behind both Alfred Blue (12) and Jonathan Grimes (6) in carries. Polk isn't a Week 11 fantasy option.
Wed, Nov 18, 2015 06:01:00 PM

Chris Polk (knee) is probable for Week 10.

Polk was never in doubt despite being added to the injury report this week. He could see 7-10 touches behind Alfred Blue, but isn't a Week 10 fantasy option.
Sat, Nov 14, 2015 02:57:00 PM

Texans RB Chris Polk is listed on the Week 10 injury report with a knee issue, but is practicing in full.

Polk will be good to go as a change up behind plodding starter Alfred Blue. Polk is on the RB3/4 borderline in standard leagues.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 03:30:00 PM

Chris Polk had eight carries for 18 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for four yards in the Texans' Week 8 win over the Titans.

Polk was the No. 2 back behind Alfred Blue. He had a few series to himself, but didn't do anything on his limited touches. Polk isn't worth stashing though Houston's Week 9 bye.
