RB Derrick Ward still in the mix for Houston

Nick Scurfield on Twitter - [Full Article]

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said the team is still lining up with veteran runner Derrick Ward as their number two back and Ben Tate as number three.

"I could see us playing 3 guys on gameday," Kubiak said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tate clearly has more potential than Ward should Arian Foster be sidelined for any length of time, but Kubiak could easily keep the veteran involved. Ward can't be entirely dismissed as a low round gamble.
