It looks like the Texans are going to sign Pierre Thomas, who immediately becomes the best third down back on the roster. Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk would vie for carries on first and second down. It appears that Thomas may have the most value in PPR formats. Blue has the inside track for early down carries, but he wasn't very productive last season (3.1 YPC). He averaged 3.74 YPC in the six games where he saw at least 10 carries.
