DeAndre Hopkins Sees Double-Digit Targets Again In Week 2

The Houston Texans receiving game struggled in Week 2--quarterback Deshaun Watson only threw for 125 yards--but DeAndre Hopkins was a bright spot again. Hopkins was targeted 13 times--he caught seven of those for 73 yards--in the game. If Watson shows improvement in his second start, a game like this could represent Hopkins' fantasy floor.

Lamar Miller And D'Onta Foreman Split Carries Against Bengals

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said that backup running back D'Onta Foreman would see the ball more against Cincinnati after only receiving one carry in Week 1. That proved true on Thursday, when Foreman saw 12 carries and gained 40 yards. Starting running back Lamar Miller carried the ball 18 times for 61 yards and added... Read More

Deshaun Watson Rushes For Touchdown, Struggles In Passing Game

Quarterback Deshaun Watson made his first NFL start on Thursday, leading the Texans to a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Texans Will Meet With Gary Barnidge, Other Tight Ends

With Houston Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on the Injured Reserve and tight ends Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson dealing with concussion issues, the Texans appear to be looking toward free agency as a way of shoring up the position. The team will meet with free agent and former Cleveland Brown Gary Barnidge on Friday. Barnidge... Read More

Sit Deshaun Watson Against Bengals

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will make his first career start Thursday against the Cincinnati Bengals, but that doesn't mean he should make his first start for your fantasy team. Watson--who threw for a touchdown and an interception in the second half of Week 1's loss to Jacksonville after replacing starter Tom Savage at halftime--won't have... Read More

D'Onta Foreman Will See Increase In Carries In Week 2

Houston Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman will see an increase in carries for Week 2's match-up with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Lamar Miller Should Be Safe Start For Week 2

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller didn't play great in Week 1, but he should see enough of the ball in Week 2's game with the Bengals to justify a start. Although Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has said that rookie running back D'Onta Foreman will see the ball more going forward, the Bengals match-up... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Is A Good Start Against Bengals

The Houston Texans offense looked horrendous in their Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Though they've replaced quarterback Tom Savage with rookie Deshaun Watson, the offense is still expected to struggle in Thursday's game with the Cincinnati Bengals, but one possible bright spot is wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins led the NFL in targets... Read More

Ryan Griffin, Stephen Anderson Out For Week 2

The Houston Texans have already placed tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on IR due to a concussion he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars; now, the team has officially ruled out two more tight ends, Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson, for Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with concussion issues. Tight end Evan Baylis has... Read More

Deshaun Watson Will Start For Texans

After one disappointing half in which the Houston Texans struggled to move the football, head coach Bill O'Brien had seen enough of quarterback Tom Savage. Reports say that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has been named the starter for Houston's Thursday night matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Watson threw for a touchdown and an interception during... Read More

Jaelen Strong Returns From Suspension

After missing Houston's season-opening loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars due to suspension, wide receiver Jaelen Strong will return to the team for Thursday's match-up with the Cincinnati Bengals. Strong has never been a big part in the Texans offense in his two previous seasons--he has a career total of 292 yards and three touchdowns--but that... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Placed On IR

After suffering his second concussion since the start of the preseason, the Houston Texans have placed tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on the Injured Reserve. With Fiedorowicz out, Houston's tight end job will fall to Ryan Griffin, who is currently dealing with his own concussion issues, and Stephen Anderson. If Griffin misses time, Anderson could have...

Deeper Sleepers for Standard Leagues (Week 2)

Well, this week happened, didn't it? There were some really bad performances by some NFL teams--hi Cincinnati! hi Houston!--and some disappointing performances by players you were counting on in fantasy. There were also surprises. Also, you lost David Johnson. You were likely getting ready to stand up and holler about how good the catch he'd... Read More

D'Onta Foreman To See More Carries In Week 2

After only touching the ball once in Houston's Week 1 loss to the Jaguars, running back D'Onta Foreman is expected to be more involved in the offense going forward, according to Texans head coach Bill O'Brien. The Texans offense struggled against Jacksonville and running back Lamar Miller dominated the team's carries--his 17 carries represented all... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Finishes Strong Against Jaguars

In the first half of Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars, it looked like wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was in for the same disappointing season he endured in 2016. Then quarterback Tom Savage was benched for rookie Deshaun Watson at halftime and Hopkins showed why the Texans just signed him to... Read More

Deshaun Watson Expected To Be Texans Starter If Healthy

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Houston Texans are expected to stick with quarterback Deshaun Watson, who was inserted into Sunday's game at halftime, as their starting quarterback provided he is healthy and ready to go for Thursday's match-up with the Cincininati Bengals. The healthy part is important because it was reported... Read More

Lamar Miller Solid In Week 1

While the Houston Texans passing game looked lost through Sunday's loss to Jacksonville, running back Lamar Miller did his best to show that the team's rushing attack can be relied on to pick-up some of the slack. Miller--who had 17 of the team's 23 carries and added a pair of receptions--wasn't spectacular, but his 65... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz And Ryan Griffin Leave Texans Game With Concussions

Houston Texans tight ends C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin left Sunday's season-opener after suffering concussions. Fiedorowicz had just passed the concussion protocol earlier in the week after dealing with a concussion during the preseason.

Bill O'Brien Does Not Commit To Starting Quarterback For Week 2

After the team's 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars--a game in which starting quarterback Tom Savage was benched for rookie Deshaun Watson at halftime--Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien says that he is not ready to commit to a starting quarterback for next week's game. Fantasy owners should monitor this situation, but whoever earns the... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Passes Concussion Protocol, Is Low-End Fantasy Option

Houston Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz has passed concussion protocol and will play in the Texans season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fiedorowicz, who had 559 yards and four touchdowns in 2016, is not a great fantasy option on a Texans team whose passing game is a major unknown, but he could be a safe play... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Expected To Be Major Part Of Houston Offense In Week 1

Coming off a disappointing 2016 season, Texans wide receiver might seem like a risky play, especially with the team turning to quarterback Tom Savage. But the receiver--who just signed a five-year extension--should be the one bright spot in Houston's passing game. Savage has shown in the past that he knows how to get the ball... Read More

Tom Savage Should Be Avoided in Week 1

The Houston Texans are going into 2017 with Tom Savage as their starting quarterback, but that doesn't mean fantasy teams should follow suit. With injuries--both minor and major--to the team's receiving core, Savage is too much of a risk to see lineups this week in anything but larger, multi-QB leagues. Savage has never thrown an...

Lamar Miller Should Play Well Against Jaguars

With uncertainty surrounding the Houston Texans passing game going into Sunday's season opener against the Jaguars, one player who should excel is running back Lamar Miller.

Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue has been ruled out for Sunday's season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a high-ankle sprain.
