Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/21/14 2:32pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson had five catches for 77 yards in a Week 7 loss Monday, Oct. 20, to move past Hall of Famer Steve Largent and into 14th place on the all-time receiving yards list.
Huddle Up: Johnson is still a low-end WR 2 or flex starter in PPR leagues, but he's had only one scoring reception in his last 14 games dating back to last season and his owners in standard-scoring leagues can hardly be blamed if they've sought out other starting options.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 10/20/14 8:00pm ET
Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will not play in Week 7 because his lateral movement is not where the team wants it to be.
Huddle Up: The top overall pick warmed up and reportedly was close to returning, but he will sit out a sixth straight game.
DeAndre Hopkins - WRPosted 10/16/14 6:55pm ET
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Hopkins should be just fine for Monday night's game in Pittsburgh, and his fantasy owners will certainly be looking for a bounce-back game following his dud of a performance (1 catch for 12 yards on 2 targets) in Week 6.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/10/14 12:13am ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson reached 13,000 career receiving yards in the second quarter of the team's Week 6 game Thursday, Oct. 9, and finished with a season-high 7 catches for 99 yards and a TD. He is the 15th receiver in NFL history to reach the mark, and Jerry Rice is the only player to reach the total faster than Johnson.
Huddle Up: Johnson, who didn't practice this week due to an ankle issue, was targted a game-high 12 times and found the end zone for the first time since Week 10 last season. The only negative was his lost fumble in Indy territory in the fourth quarter, helping the Colts to a 33-28 road win.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 10/10/14 7:47pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback even though he has struggled at times this season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: It's hard to blame Fitzpatrick. He is what he is. Fitzpatrick is a great backup that can come in for 6-8 games and help a team save its season. He's not a guy, however, who can lead an offense for 16 games. Fitzpatrick is no more than a QB2 and there's a good chance Ryan Mallet sees time under center before the season is over.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/9/14 8:00pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) is active Thursday, Oct. 9, against the Indianapolis Colts despite not practicing all week.
Huddle Up: Johnson will play on a short week and will be looking for his first TD grab of the season against an Indy secondary that surrenders the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 10/8/14 1:55pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is good to go for the Week 6 game Thursday, Oct. 9, according to Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Foster was limited in practice this week but his 25 touches and season-high 172 yards and 2 TDs this past Sunday says all you need to know about Foster's health entering Thursday night's AFC South showdown against Indy.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/7/14 12:50am ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) missed practice Monday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: It's a practice the day after a game on a short week so no real concern for now.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 10/7/14 7:08pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Foster not only played a full game and didn't appear to aggravate his hammy Sunday, but he delivered his best fantasy game (172 total yards, 2 TDs) in quite some time and will be ready for the early AFC South showdown against the Colts on Thursday night.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/7/14 7:08pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 7. Head coach Bill O'Brien still expects him to play Thursday, Oct. 9, against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Expect Johnson to play, but keep your fantasy hopes realistic given the emergence of second-year WR DeAndre Hopkins and a matchup against a tough Indy pass defense which has allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/4/14 8:16pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) is expected to play in Week 5, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Johnson didn't practice on Friday but the veteran is expected to suit up on Sunday against the Cowboys. Johnson hasn't scored yet this season but still comes in as a WR2 this week if he's in the lineup.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 10/2/14 2:28pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) could be a game-time decision in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. "I;m just going to go out there every day and see how it feels," Foster said. "If it feels good enough to play, I'll suit up." Foster continues to be day-to-day after being held out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs definitely must proceed with caution here with Foster. The RB did play in Week 4, but clearly wasn't at full health, gaining only 6 yards on 8 rushes.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 10/1/14 6:01pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Foster played in Week 4 but clearly wasn't 100 percent, rushing for only 6 yards on 8 carries. Fantasy owners may be looking at the same scenario this Sunday so weigh your fantasy options carefully.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 9/30/14 7:23pm ET
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) began running Tuesday, Sept. 30, as part of his rehabilitation process. He said the rehab process is coming along well and that he hopes to return in a few weeks.
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, J.J. Watt and the 3-1 Texans are doing just fine but they could certainly use the top overall pick for tougher matchups ahead.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/29/14 2:32pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) said he was less than 100 percent during the team's Week 4 game but tried to help out the team. 'I just wasn't 100 percent healthy out there (Sunday),' Foster said. 'I didn't feel 100 percent myself, so I got some third downs in at the end of the game, just to try to help out. I'm glad I could make my play when my number was called.' Foster rushed for six yards on eight carries in Week 4 but did catch seven passes for 55 yards.
Huddle Up: Foster didn't look healthy Sunday and hamstring injuries can linger. He has a solid matchup Sunday against Dallas but it remains to be seen how healthy Foster will be for the game. The injury could hinder Foster all season unless he gets some rest. The Texans bye isn't until Week 10.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/27/14 8:17pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) remains a game-time decision, but he will probably play in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer John McClain. Foster was close to playing last week.
Huddle Up: Foster is a still a game-time decision but the good news is the Texans play Buffalo at 1:00 ET, so at least owners will know either way. Alfred Blue will get the start if Foster is held out another week.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/26/14 3:45pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 4, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: For the second straight week, Foster owners will need to be paying attention before kickoff Sunday morning.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/25/14 7:57pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 25, for the second straight day.
Huddle Up: The going remains slow for the RB, who is expected to be a game-time decision again Sunday morning.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 9/24/14 8:40pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Johnson is dealing with an ankle injury but he's expected to be in the lineup Sunday against Buffalo. He can be counted on as a WR2 this week.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/24/14 8:40pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did some things in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24, but he remains 'day-to-day,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said Foster will work out before the team's Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills to determine if he can play. Foster was listed as limited in practice Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Foster is headed for another game-time decision this week. If he can't go against the Bills, Alfred Blue will get his second straight start. Blue played well against the Giants - rushing for 78 yards on 13 carries - but the Texans got down early and had to throw. Blue is a RB2 option this week if Foster is out.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/23/14 4:02pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), who is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, is unsure if he'll be able to return in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. RB Alfred Blue replaced Foster in Week 3 and ran for 78 yards on 13 carries in the loss. Foster has 55 carries for 241 yards in two games this year.
Huddle Up: Foster owners are going to need some patience as this, in all likelihood, means another game-time decision Sunday morning.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/19/14 5:54pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice again Friday, Sept. 19, and he is questionable for Week 3 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: There's been nothing to suggest that Foster is any real danger of missing the game, but beware that his heavy workload -- a league-high 55 rushes through the first 2 games -- might already be taking a toll on the RB.
DeAndre Hopkins - WRPosted 9/18/14 6:47pm ET
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Just a temporary bug so no real concerns for Hopkins, who has caught a scoring pass in each of the Texans' 2 games so far.
Jonathan Grimes - RBPosted 9/15/14 10:22am ET
Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried 11 times for 40 yards in the Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders, while RB Jonathan Grimes had just three carries for nine yards. Neither player had a reception.
Huddle Up: Blue is fast becoming the handcuff to Arian Foster, who at this juncture doesn't appear to be in need of much of a handcuff. That said, Foster has an injury history so stashing Blue isn't necessary a bad roster move.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 9/22/14 9:14am ET
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee) underwent surgery for a torn lateral meniscus Monday, Sept. 8. He is expected to miss four to six weeks.
Huddle Up: It's a blow to Houston's defense but the Texans still have a juicy fantasy matchup this week against the Raiders that should reward owners with plenty of points.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 9/22/14 9:14am ET
Updating a previous report, the Houston Texans fear LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) suffered a meniscus tear in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins that could require arthroscopic surgery, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Clowney will likely miss at least a month. It's a blow to a Houston defense that looked much-improved in Week 1 against Washington. However, the Texans will still be a decent match-up play versus weaker offenses even without Clowney in the lineup.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 9/5/14 2:11pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will 'get the bulk of the playing time' in Week 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Jonathan Grimes, Alfred Blue and Ronnie Brown will be mixed in for certain situations. It'll be Foster's first game action -- regulation or exhibition -- since his season-ending back injury in 2013.
Huddle Up: Hey, you spent that high draft pick on Foster, so you're rolling him out there Sunday and seeing what develops in the Texans' new-look offense.
Garrett Graham - TEPosted 9/5/14 7:42pm ET
Houston Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is questionable for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins. He did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and has not been involved in a practice this week.
Huddle Up: Graham is a game-time decision against Washington. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for a starting tight end this week.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 9/4/14 2:09pm ET
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (concussion) is expected to start in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, head coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday, Sept. 3. Clowney missed the third preseason game, but he wasn't even listed on the team's injury report Wednesday.
Huddle Up: It's been confirmed that the No. 1 overall pick missed the final two games of the preseason after suffering a concussion in a joint-practice session with the Broncos, but he should be good to go after more than 2 weeks of rest. In short, not good timing for RGIII and the Skins on Sunday.
Ryan Mallett - QBPosted 9/4/14 2:23pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett was named the team's backup quarterback, with rookie QB Tom Savage the No. 3 quarterback.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, and this is who you'll see at the Texans' controls if Ryan Fitzpatrick pulls a Matt Schaub and gets himself benched.
