Blue had a decent season in a reserve role and even got a few starts because of injury. He didn't exactly light it up with more work, though, having double-digit carries six times. His season high in rushing was just 54 yards. Blue averaged only 3.3 yards per carry. He did set a career high in the passing game, catching 20 passes for 154 yards. Blue is likely to play a similar reserve role this year with the Jaguars, hoping to serve as the No. 2 or 3 back for his new team. Blue has good size, runs with some power, catches the ball well and has decent moves in the open field. He lacks explosion, though, and makes few big plays.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Blue isn't a very exciting option unless injury occurs. He won't get enough work in a backup role to help fantasy teams. He might finish with around 500 total yards with a score or two.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Alfred Blue (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the preseason game against the Eagles on Thursday night. Blue had five yards on four carries in the game before departing. It's unclear how serious the former Texan's injury is, so stay tuned for more details. If healthy this year, Blue should help serve as depth behind the oft-injured Leonard Fournette in the Jags backfield. It's looking more like rookie Ryquell Armstead will get the first shot at snaps after Fournette, though, so Blue doesn't move the fantasy need much, if at all.
Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle) was diagnosed with a sprained ankle.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Alfred Blue had five yards on four carries in Thursday's preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. For a little while, it looked like Blue could wind up as the main backup to Leonard Fournette, but it's looking more and more like that job belongs to rookie Ryquell Armstead. Blue doesn't appear to have a solid role this year for the Jaguars, making him a player to avoid in all fantasy formats. If you must handcuff Fournette, do it with Armstead.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent running back Alfred Blue to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday. In five seasons with the Texans, Blue had 2,407 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground while catching 69 passes for 470 yards.
