    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.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 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.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 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    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury in Week 16 and has been replaced by QB Taylor Heinicke.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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 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.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 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.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 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.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 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.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 7:45pm ET

    Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates completed just 12 of his 31 pass attempts for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: It was a disastrous start for Yates against a very good Jacksonville defense. He is likely to continue starting down the stretch, but he isn't even worth using as a low-end QB2 in deeper leagues using two starting signal callers at this rate.
