• DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/21/17 6:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said the chemistry between he and QB Deshaun Watson is improving every day. 'We're growing, we're getting to know each other, and it's getting better, I can say,' Hopkins said.

    Huddle Up: In their first full game together, Watson targeted Hopkins 13 times. The big plays haven't been there, but the huge workload should make him a low-end WR2, especially in PPR formats, against the Patriots in Week 3.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/20/17 7:22am ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has a tough matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 3 based on historical data. No rookie quarterback has won in New England since head coach Bill Belichick was hired in 2000. They are 0-8 with five touchdowns, 16 interceptions and a 50.7 passer rating.

    Huddle Up: Watson is only an option in dynasty leagues or in leagues where you must start two quarterbacks. However, this week isn't a strong matchup.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 9/20/17 4:28pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Bill O'Brien made the announcement Wednesday, despite Fuller's return to the practice field, and added that the second-year receiver 'will be available soon.' Fuller had some glimpses of brilliance in 2016, and can be a fantasy asset when healthy.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/19/17 7:31pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has 29 targets through Week 2, making him easily the most targeted receiver in the league through two games.

    Huddle Up: To give you some sense of how much the Texans are relying on him, 24 of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson's 47 pass attempts in six quarters of action have been thrown in direction of Hopkins. The fifth-year wideout has responded with seven receptions in each of his first two games but is averaging only 9.1 yards per catch. Life won't get any easier in Week 3 when the New England Patriots will almost certainly force Watson to rely on his other receivers. Nevertheless, Hopkins is a solid WR2 in fantasy.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 9/18/17 3:16pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (shoulder) participated in practice Monday, Sept. 18. His status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has been sidelined since early in training camp because of his broken collarbone, so he probably will need a week or two before he is able to play in a game. He may be eased into the offense when he does start playing but could be a factor during the second half of the season. Owners desperate for help at receiver may consider adding Fuller if he is available on the waiver wire.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/14/17 8:42pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 15 of his 24 pass attempts for 125 yards and rushed five times for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Watson struggled throwing the ball and looked nervous in the pocket, but he flashed his upside with a 49-yard rushing score. There are going to be plenty of growing pains for the rookie, but his scrambling ability should keep him in the QB2 conversation.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/14/17 8:53pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 73 yards in a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins saw more targets than the rest of the team combined, but neither Tom Savage nor Deshaun Watson has shown the ability to connect with him consistently, especially on deeper throws. Hopkins looked stuck as a high-upside WR3 for now.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/13/17 3:22pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (wrist) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins will be a focal point of offense no matter who starts at quarterback and likely will lead the team in targets. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.

  • Tom Savage - QB
    Posted 9/13/17 3:16pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (ankle) and QB Tom Savage (finger) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13, and are not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Watson is expected to start the game, but the team has not named the starter at this point. Both Savage and Watson had problems in Week 1 and neither should be a starting option in any fantasy leagues.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/12/17 4:33am ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will start the game Thursday, Sept. 14, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: After the subpar performance of Tom Savage early in the first game, the Texans rolled the dice and went with Watson. He didn't do much better down the stretch, but it might be time to see what Watson is made of on a regular basis. Do not start Watson in your fantasy league just yet, as it's going to take time for his skills to sharpen.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/12/17 12:17pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson took repetitions with the first-team offense in a walk-through practice Tuesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Watson still has room to grow as a rookie, but he was clearly the more successful and beneficial quarterback for the Texans in Week 1. If the rookie does start, he remains a No. 2 fantasy quarterback versus the Cincinnati Bengals. He would be a solid waiver wire addition as a backup, though.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE
    Posted 9/12/17 1:59pm ET

    Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Ryan Griffin will take over as the starting tight end once he returns from his own concussion. Fellow tight end Stephen Anderson will get some looks, too, but Griffin will be Houston's No. 1 tight end as long as he's healthy and deserves to be added for those who own/owned Fiedorowicz.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/12/17 3:16pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will be under center for his first NFL start in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: As mentioned previously, Watson played much better than his counterpart Tom Savage last week. There will be growing pains for the rookie, but he gives the Texans their best chance to win. Pick him up if you're hurting at quarterback, but don't expect weekly QB1 performances.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/11/17 6:15am ET

    Updating previous reports, Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is expected to be the starter Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. The situation is still being evaluated.

    Huddle Up: Watson is worth rostering as a QB2, but growing pains should be expected. Tom Savage would lose his roster viability with a demotion.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/11/17 6:32am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (ankle) was spotted limping Sunday, Sept. 10, with an ankle injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Texans play the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night, and the ankle injury could keep Tom Savage in the starting lineup. Both are QB2 options, but Watson has more roster clout in fantasy.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE
    Posted 9/11/17 1:26pm ET

    Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) is not expected to play Thursday, Sept. 14, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson are also in the concussion protocol and may not play, which means plenty of targets again for DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins had as many targets in Week 1 (16) as the rest of Houston's offense combined. Running backs Lamar Miller and Tyler Ervin should also be more involved in the passing game.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/11/17 2:39pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins saw 16 targets in the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The rest of Houston's offense had 16 targets combined.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins will be targeted plenty no matter who the quarterback is, but he benefitted more from Deshaun Watson. He only totaled 54 yards on the 16 targets, but he did tally seven catches, including a touchdown. Hopkins remains a WR1 this week as the Texans' go-to receiving threat.

  • Ryan Griffin - TE
    Posted 9/11/17 3:21pm ET

    Houston Texans TEs C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) and TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Both Fiedorowicz and Griffin will have to pass their concussion tests before they are cleared to play. Owners should avoid both players since the team has a short week to prepare for Week 2.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/11/17 3:38pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (wrist) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was targeted 16 times in Week 1 and will continue to be the main target in the passing game no matter the starting quarterback. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

  • Tom Savage - QB
    Posted 9/11/17 3:36pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (finger) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Savage was pulled from his start in Week 1 but is still a candidate to start in Week 2. Owners in all leagues should look for other options to use and should avoid Savage.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/11/17 3:27pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (ankle) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Watson played the second half of the team's Week 1 game and is in the running to start in Week 2. He had an up-and-down performance during his limited playing time against the Jacksonville Jaguars and should be avoided in fantasy leagues if he starts.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 9/10/17 11:48am ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson took over as the starting quarterback in the second half of the team's Week 1 game replacing QB Tom Savage.

    Huddle Up: Watson has a chance to take over as the starting quarterback if he plays well against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Watson can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues if he keeps the starting job.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE
    Posted 9/10/17 12:25pm ET

    Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 1 game and has been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Fiedorowicz will need to pass his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so he should be considered questionable for Week 2.

  • Tom Savage - QB
    Posted 9/10/17 5:38pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage was benched in favor of rookie QB DeShaun Watson in Week 1 against the Jaguars, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, Sept. 10, he would evaluated game film before deciding on a starting quarterback for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: The Texans have a short week to prepare for the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, so a decision will be made quickly. Savage was atrocious, while Watson led the team a bit better. It's likely Watson is under center on Thursday, but wait for official word. Neither is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective at this point.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 9/10/17 6:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller carried 17 times for 65 yards and caught two passes for 31 yards in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Miller managed a decent game despite a horrible showing from the Houston offense. He remains the unquestioned feature back, and he should be a volume-based RB2 against Cincinnati in Week 2.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 6:16pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes on 16 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: It's nice to see the heavy usage, but until Houston can find a quarterback who can consistently hook up with Hopkins, the receiver's value is going to be capped. Consider him a WR3 heading into a Thursday night matchup with Cincinnati in Week 2.

  • Braxton Miller - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 6:39pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller failed to catch his only target in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Miller certainly wasn't helped by Houston's terrible pass protection and poor quarterback play, but this wasn't good sign for fantasy owners hoping for a breakout from the former college quarterback. He remains high-upside stash candidate for now.

  • Alfred Blue - RB
    Posted 9/7/17 4:23pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Blue will miss at least one week because of his injury and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Alfred Blue - RB
    Posted 9/6/17 3:54pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Blue was expected to miss a few weeks because of his injury, so there is a chance that he sits out Week 1. Owners in all leagues should avoid him this week.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 9/6/17 4:08pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins missed most of the preseason because of the injury but will be on the field for Week 1. He will see plenty of targets in the passing game this week and can be No. 2 receiver.
