2019 RTSports Outlook

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.

Player Notes
Aug 25 4:03pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle), WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring), WR DJ Chark (concussion) and TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) are not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 25.

Aug 17 2:23pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game because of his ankle injury.

From TheHuddle

Aug 16 12:50pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Aug 15 11:30pm ET

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.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle) will not return to the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, because of his ankle injury.

Aug 15 7:53pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, and is considered questionable to return.

From TheHuddle

Jul 17 3:03am ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue is the 'frontrunner' for the No. 2 spot behind RB Leonard Fournette, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid.

Fantasy Spin: There are some other recognizable names on the depth chart, including Thomas Rawls and rookie Ryquell Armstead, but Blue has been penciled in as RB2 since he signed with the Jags. He remains a decent late-round handcuff for Fournette owners.

From TheHuddle

May 28 1:03pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue was absent from the team's OTA workouts Tuesday, May 28, for an unspecified, non-medical reason.

Fantasy Spin: Keep an eye on Blue as he's vying with Thomas Rawls, Benny Cunningham and rookie Ryquell Armstead to serve as the primary backup to the oft-injured Leonard Fournette.

From TheHuddle

Apr 1 10:00pm ET

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. He rushed for only 499 yards and two touchdowns over a full season last year with Houston behind Lamar Miller. Blue will join Thomas Rawls, David Williams and Dimitri Flowers as depth behind the oft-injured Leonard Fournette in 2019. Consider Blue just a low-upside handcuff for Fournette owners.

From RotoBaller

Apr 1 4:13pm ET

Free-agent RB Alfred Blue (Texans) signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, April 1, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Spin: Blue was a solid contributor for the Houston Texans behind Lamar Miller. He'll make for a high-end handcuff behind Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville.

Apr 1 8:13am ET

Free-agent RB Alfred Blue (Texans) is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, April 1.
