Stephen Anderson In Line For Strong Outing Against 49ers

Houston Texans tight end Stephen Anderson was targeted 12 times in Week 13 against the Titans after starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz went down with a concussion. Anderson will likely play a major role in the Texans offense this week, as Fiedorowicz has been placed on Injured Reserve and injuries to other key players have... Read More

Will Fuller Expected To Play

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (ribs) is expected to return against the 49ers in Week 14. San Francisco's pass defense has struggled in 2017, which could allow Fuller to have a strong performance.

Tom Savage Could Have Decent Game In Week 14

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage had his best game of the season against the Titans in Week 13, throwing for 365 yards and a touchdown and tying his season low with just one turnover.

Braxton Miller Could Play Against 49ers

Houston Texans wide receiver Braxton Miller (concussion) could play in Week 14 against the 49ers, head coach Bill O'Brien says, though his return is not guaranteed.

Alfred Blue Doubtful In Week 14

Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue (concussion) is unlikely to play in Week 14. With Blue out, Andre Ellington will likely serve as the primary backup to starter Lamar Miller, though Miler will likely dominate touches out of the backfield. Blue could return in Week 15, though his fantasy upside is limited by his lack... Read More

Texans Expect C.J. Fiedorowicz Back Next Season

Despite suffering his third concussion of 2017 and landing on Injured Reserve for the second time, the Houston Texans expect tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) to be with the team for the 2018 season. Questions had emerged about Fiedorowicz's recent spate of head injuries possibly leading to an early retirement, but head coach Bill O'Brien expects him... Read More

Bruce Ellington Placed On IR, DeAndrew White Promoted From Practice Squad

Houston Texans wide receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) has been placed on Injured Reserve. Ellington ends the season with 330 yards on 29 catches.

Texans Place C.J. Fiedorowicz On IR, Promote MyCole Pruitt To Active Roster

Houston Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) has been placed on Injured Reserve after sustaining his third concussion of the 2017 season. Fiedorowicz ends the season with 14 catches for 127 yards. Stephen Anderson will see his snaps increase now, but he isn't likely to be fantasy relevant except in deeper formats as a low-end streamer.... Read More

Texans Activate Brian Cushing

After a 10-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, the Houston Texans have activated linebacker Brian Cushing. Cushing has been a star for Houston in the past, but it remains to be seen if he can get back to that level of production this year. His presence could help the Houston defense in a fantasy matchup... Read More

Deeper Sleepers for Standard Fantasy Football Leagues (Week 14)

It's fantasy playoff time, y'all, which means your waiver claims have to stop being lottery tickets and start being pieces that you believe can actively contribute to your playoff run.

The Houston Texans lost tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz to a concussion in their Week 13 loss to the Titans, but backup Stephen Anderson did his best to make up for that, finishing with five catches for 79 yards and a touchdown.

Andre Ellington Sees Action At Wide Receiver Against Titans

Houston Texans running back Andre Ellington was forced into action at wide receiver after Bruce Ellington and Braxton Miller left Sunday's loss to the Titans. Ellington finished the game with five catches for 56 yards. His role for Week 14 is currently unclear and will depend on what Texans players are active against San Francisco.

Will Fuller Won't Play In Week 13

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 13, but head coach Bill O'Brien says that the speedy wideout should return at some point this season.

Will Fuller Misses Practice Again

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (ribs) was absent from practice again on Thursday, casting his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Titans into doubt.

DeAndre Hopkins In Line For Good Start In Week 13

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is, once again, a solid start this week, owing to his skill as a receiver and his consistently large share of Houston's offensive touches. The star receiver has been the sole bright spot in the post-Deshaun Watson days in Houston. He's a WR2 this week with upside against a... Read More

Tom Savage Remains A Bad Fantasy Option

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage is still the team's starter, but the league leader in lost fumbles continues to falter and could lose that role soon. Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him in their lineups this week against the Titans, or any other week, unless they play in a very deep league. With head coach Bill... Read More
