• Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 1/2/18 8:41am ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could take part in organized team activities, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: The thought is nice, but there's no chance the team puts him in any risky situation this offseason. Watson is a midrange QB1 option in next year's drafts.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 1/2/18 2:03pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will undergo minor surgery on his injured knee. He will be fully recovered in a few weeks.

    Huddle Up: Fuller managed seven touchdowns in 2017 on just 26 catches. Obviously that kind of efficiency can't be maintained, but with Deshaun Watson coming back Fuller does have WR3 upside.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 12/31/17 10:33am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 17 and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to determine the severity of Fuller's injury. He was a valuable fantasy receiver when he was playing with Deshaun Watson and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver next season if he and Waston are healthy.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/29/17 2:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Will Fuller probably will serve as the top receiver for the Texans this week but is not a strong fantasy option. Owners probably should avoid all of the Texans pass catchers this week.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/28/17 11:05am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) will be sidelined for Week 17. It is the first game he will have missed in his five-year career.

    Huddle Up: Enough cannot be said about Hopkins' season. He was the silver lining for the Texans in 2017 and excelled no matter who was under center. An argument can be made for him to be the first wide receiver taken in fantasy drafts next summer.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/28/17 7:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins' (calf) status for the Week 17 game against the Indianapolis Colts won't be known until game time, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: With the Texans out of the playoff hunt, it would make sense to rest Hopkins if he isn't close to 100 percent. If he does happen to suit up, he should be in your starting lineup.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/27/17 2:54pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27, due to his calf injury.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if he is a legitimate question mark for the regular-season finale or he is just receiving rest for a minor injury. Despite his immense talent, with a shaky quarterback situation, Hopkins is a risky fantasy option for Week 17 even if he does play.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/25/17 3:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (head) has been cleared to return to the Week 16 game after going through the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Yates has struggled against the Steelers so far in Week 16 and should be avoided in all leagues next week.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/25/17 3:19pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury in Week 16 and has been replaced by QB Taylor Heinicke.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to determine the severity of Yates' injury. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Texans quarterback situation no matter which quarterback starts in Week 17.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/25/17 5:08pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 55 yards on 10 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been fairly consistent in terms of his rushing yards this season but has only three rushing touchdowns during that span. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues, but owners in most leagues probably can find better options.

  • Alfred Blue - RB
    Posted 12/25/17 5:02pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue rushed for 108 yards on 16 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Blue nearly matched his season total with his Week 16 performance and could see more work next week against the Indianapolis Colts. He has a chance to be a flex option in deeper leagues if he receives a similar workload.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/25/17 4:56pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates went 7-for-16 for 83 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Yates was pressured for much of the game and was not able to do much in the passing game. He should be avoided next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 12/25/17 5:18pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught one pass for 10 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was targeted five times during the game but was only able to catch one of the passes. He has been held to under 45 yards in each of the last five games and can be avoided in fantasy leagues next week.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/25/17 5:17pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught four passes for 65 yards and one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was most of the team's passing game against the Steelers and continues to play well no matter the quarterback. He should be a starting receiver in all fantasy leagues next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Braxton Miller - WR
    Posted 12/25/17 9:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller finished with only one catch for five yards in the team's Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 25, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Miller had missed the last two games, and those rolling the dice on his services this evening were left sorely disappointed. The second-year receiver was trending up prior to going down, as he had nine catches in his last two games, but that was with a different quarterback under center. Other than DeAndre Hopkins, no Texans pass-catcher finished with more than one reception.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/23/17 1:42pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) was limited during practice Saturday, Dec. 23, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins is working with his third quarterback this season but continues to be a productive receiver for fantasy owners. He will have a tough matchup this week but should still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Braxton Miller - WR
    Posted 12/23/17 1:52pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Miller should return to the lineup after missing the last several games because of his concussion. Miller probably will see limited targets during the game and is not a strong fantasy option.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/23/17 1:43pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Yates has posted decent numbers in his limited playing time this season, but owners should have better options available for their lineups.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/22/17 1:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins does not appear to be in any danger of missing Week 16 and should see his normal workload. He will be facing a tough Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense but can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver for owners.

  • Braxton Miller - WR
    Posted 12/22/17 2:20pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Miller appears to be on track to play in Week 16 after missing some time because of his concussion. He probably will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Texans this week but is not a strong fantasy option.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/22/17 1:59pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Yates has thrown for 303 yards, three touchdowns and one interception since taking over the starting quarterback. He will be facing one of the better defenses in the NFL this week and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/21/17 4:45pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Yates is drawing the starting assignment on Monday against the Steelers, but it's hard to recommend utilizing his services, even in two-quarterback leagues. It's very realistic that the Texans get blown out, in which case Yates would be throwing a ton versus loose coverage, but even then it's hard to trust the six-year journeyman.

  • Braxton Miller - WR
    Posted 12/21/17 5:06pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 21, and was a full participant.

    Huddle Up: The second-year wide-out was doing some good things before sustaining a concussion, as he literally had the two best showings of his career in back-to-back games prior to getting injured. However, if he does return to action this weekend, he'll have a new quarterback in T.J. Yates throwing him the ball, and thus, he's not recommended for any league.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/21/17 5:12pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has never missed a game in his five-year career, so it's a good bet he'll be out there on Monday opposite the Steelers. Even with the downgrade at quarterback, the WR1 continues to post delightful numbers from his weekly massive amount of targets, and the same should hold true this week.

  • T.J. Yates - QB
    Posted 12/20/17 9:41pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates will start in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. QB Tom Savage was classified as 'a ways off' from playing by O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Yates completed just 38.7 of his passes a week ago and now draws a Steelers team fighting for one of the top two seeds. Inserting him into your lineup with a championship on the line would be a bold move, Cotton... but one you definitely wouldn't want to make.

  • Tom Savage - QB
    Posted 12/19/17 10:04pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) remains on the active roster as of Tuesday, Dec. 19, and has not been placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: It sounds as though Savage won't play again this year, but the team has yet to officially shut him down for the season. Still, even if he got the call he'd be best avoided for fantasy purposes.

  • Tom Savage - QB
    Posted 12/17/17 7:17am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol and likely will not play again this season, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates probably will start the last three games and will have some solid weapons to work with in the passing game but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/17/17 8:59am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is active for Week 15's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Despite a somewhat challenging matchup, along with the fact that T.J. Yates will be Houston's starting quarterback for the rest of the season, Hopkins should be viewed as a high-end WR2 in all fantasy formats this week. He is coming off an 11-catch, 149-yard performance against the San Francisco 49ers where he was targeted 16 times and reached the end zone twice.

  • Stephen Anderson - TE
    Posted 12/17/17 7:47pm ET

    Houston Texans TE Stephen Anderson did not have any receptions on three targets in Week 15 agaisnt the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Anderson had a huge game in Week 13 and looked to have some promise, but he has done nothing over the past two outings. He cannot be trusted even if the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

  • Will Fuller - WR
    Posted 12/17/17 7:47pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted five receptions for 44 yards on his five targets in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Fuller had some huge games earlier in the season, but that was when working with DeShaun Foster. Since Foster went down, and then Fuller returned from an injury himself, he has been very ordinary. Treat him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues heading into Week 16. He hasn't been nearly as prolific with Tom Savage or T.J. Yates under center.
