I'm starting Duke as a 3rd RB in my PPR league. Mainly because I think Carlos Hyde is very "Alfred Blue-ish" at this point in his career. 3-yards and a cloud of dust. Nothing special, and he's no longer a starting calibre talent.

Duke should get all the work he can handle. The question will be, can he hold up and stay healthy with that increase in carries/receptions he'll see when compared to his workload in Cleveland?
I really like the Hyde "Alfred Blue-ish" comp.
I'm starting Duke in one of my flex spots so I'm hoping he shows he can handle all the Texans can put on his plate.

I suppose I'll start Duke. It helps that Coutee has gotten the Questionable tag, and may be limited even if he is active; seems to me Duke is more than that capable of flexing out into the slot and getting some of Coutee's targets.

Call it a gut feeling, but I actually think Buddy Howell gets some carries this week. He had a good game in game 2 of the pre season and then didn't play in the 3rd or 4th one. Hyde is a pedestrian talent at this point and Taiwan Jones to me is a special teamer. I don't think the Texans kept both Howell and Jones just to play special teams. We shall see.
Howell is indeed a core special-teamer, though. Good gunner with the coverage units. I think Jones returns kicks? So they do different things for the special-teams.
