J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/28/16 8:03am ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Watt is one of the best players in IDP leagues, but it's unlikely to have the amount of bench spots where you can comfortably sit him out for the off chance he returns late in the season. If you do have space, stash him in hopes of the unlikely. However, reports are his season is likely over.
Braxton Miller - WRPosted 9/28/16 2:47pm ET
Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Miller missed the Week 3 game against the New England Patriots, but he isn't expected to miss an extended time with the hamstring injury. He is a big-play threat waiting to happen with tremendous athleticism, but he's also a raw receiver who caught just two passes through his first two games of the season. Miller isn't a must-own player at this stage of the season.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/27/16 5:53pm ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) has re-injured his back and is expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, perhaps for the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Watt is an elite NFL player and an elite IDP option in fantasy leagues. The Texans will miss his presence, but perhaps it will open the door more for Jadeveon Clowney to get his career going. Clowney is worth a pickup in IDP leagues if he's available.
Jaelen Strong - WRPosted 9/24/16 7:02pm ET
Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong caught one of his four targets for 15 yards in a 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 3, dropping a pass and committing a personal foul penalty.
Huddle Up: Strong had a chance to make some noise with Braxton Miller sidelined, but he did little to make a case for more targets. He can be left on the waiver wire at this point.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/23/16 5:50am ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt was held to two tackles and no sacks Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3.
Huddle Up: He had 1.5 sacks last week, but he had two clunkers in Week 1 and last night. He should only get stronger as the season progresses and remains an elite DL option in IDP leagues.
Braxton Miller - WRPosted 9/23/16 7:33pm ET
Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much time with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Miller has two catches for nine yards this year, and the hamstring injury isn't helping his development. He should be owned in all dynasty formats, but don't be surprised if he doesn't contribute much in 2016.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 9/23/16 9:14pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he takes the blame for the performance of the offense against the New England Patriots in Week 3, and he said he will become a better quarterback because of the experience.
Huddle Up: Osweiler has three touchdowns and four picks through three games, and he looks like a low-end QB2 at this point.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/22/16 8:00pm ET
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was having his knee looked at by trainers against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22, but he was able to return to the game.
Huddle Up: Whatever Miller did to his knee, it doesn't look like it was serious. His status as Houston's every-down back should have him starting every week.
Ryan Griffin - TEPosted 9/22/16 9:36pm ET
Houston Texans TE Ryan Griffin had eight catches on 10 targets 52 yards in a 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Griffin saw just four targets in the first two games, so don't overreact to his Week 3 performance. He remains a speculative TE2 for now.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 9/21/16 3:20pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Osweiler will not be limited by his back injury and should be able to make all the throws in the offensive playbook. He will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense and probably is not a great fantasy option for owners.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 9/20/16 3:43pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Osweiler has been inconsistent throughout his short career, but he does have a favorable matchup against the New England Patriots this week. The Patriots yielded nearly 400 yards to Ryan Tannehill last week and Osweiler is a cheaper investment in daily contests.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 9/19/16 4:43pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) participated fully in practice Monday, Sept. 19. Osweiler's status is simply an estimation of what his practice activity would be as the Patriots only held a walkthrough.
Huddle Up: Osweiler has been decent so far in his first season with Texans, but he doesn't perform consistently enough to warrant QB1 status on a week-to-week basis. He's not a bad play in daily contests this week, however, going up against a New England Patriots defense that just gave up nearly 400 yards to Ryan Tannehill.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/17/16 8:24pm ET
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller has been on head coach Bill O'Brien's radar since Fuller was in high school, and O'Brien said he knows Fuller is a resilient player who will rebound from a dropped pass or bad play.
Huddle Up: Fuller had a big Week 1, and since O'Brien appears to trust him to work through rough patches, the rookie should be owned in all formats. The speedster is a high-risk, high-reward flex option against Kansas City in Week 2.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/16/16 3:40pm ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 16 but is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Watt appears to be back to normal and should be an attractive option in all IDP leagues.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/13/16 5:22am ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt had just one tackle and three quarterback hits in Week 1, but he felt great and played 88 percent of the snaps on defense. 'I knew I wouldn't have any problems with my back, and I didn't,' Watt said. 'Definitely knocked some rust off. It felt good to go out there and get some live shots at you and get back in to the flow of things.'
Huddle Up: Watt could heat things up a bit against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. It was a quiet game for him, but he needs to remain in your lineup if he's healthy.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/11/16 9:56pm ET
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 28 times for 106 yards in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, and he added four receptions for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Miller did what an RB1 is expected to do in fantasy leagues short of finding the end zone. He faces a San Diego rush defense in Week 2 that allowed two scores on the ground to Melvin Gordon, so expect Miller to make his first foray into the end zone for Houston.
DeAndre Hopkins - WRPosted 9/11/16 9:55pm ET
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Nuke took a backseat to Will Fuller, who had nearly double the amount of receiving yards in the opener. That's because Hopkins faced double teams while the rookie was freed up. If Fuller continues to produce, Hopkins should see more single coverages allowing him to produce like a first-round fantasy pick. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats across the board.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/11/16 9:54pm ET
Houston Texans rookie WR Will Fuller (hamstring) had five receptions for a game-high 107 yards and a touchdown in his regular season debut in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. He was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Fuller did not show any ill-effects of the hamstring injury which limited him in practice until Friday. If he is on the waiver wire in your fantasy league it is a good idea to scoop him up immediately, as the former Notre Dame standout will be a hot pick-up this week across the board.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 9/11/16 9:54pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 22 of his 35 pass attempts for 231 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in his regular season team debut.
Huddle Up: Osweiler jelled nicely with Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins, and the run game was good allowing him plenty of time to throw. If everyone on offense can remain healthy, Osweiler could be a decent QB2 in most fantasy leagues worth using in select weeks when the matchup is favorable.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/9/16 2:25pm ET
Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 9. WR Will Fuller (hamstring), OT Derek Newton (hamstring), DE J.J. Watt (back) and LB Akeem Dent (concussion) fully participated in practice. Brown has been ruled out for Week 1, while the other players are not on the injury report.
Huddle Up: Fuller could be a flex option in some deeper fantasy leagues, while Watt is an attractive option in IDP leagues.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/9/16 9:01pm ET
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has picked up the offense quickly, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, and O'Brien said he is looking forward to seeing what Miller does this season.
Huddle Up: Miller is primed for a big role in Houston's offense, and his all-around ability makes him a RB1 and a must-start player in any format.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/8/16 10:18am ET
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was not doing much during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Fuller's status over the next few days to see if he will play in Week 1. He is expected to have a solid role on offense this season, but owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups this week.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/8/16 11:25am ET
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) will be fine for Week 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Fuller has been limited this week because of the injury, but it appears he will be able to play in Week 1. Owners should consider him a risky option this week, but he could be a starting option in some deeper leagues.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/8/16 7:25pm ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Watt can be a fantasy force in IDP leagues, but the possibility of limited snaps clouds his value. If there is another quality option available, you may want to sit Watt in Week 1.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/8/16 7:32pm ET
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Fuller has big-play potential, but the rookie was already a risky play, and a hamstring injury for a player who relies on his speed only raises more red flags. Leave him on the bench for Week 1.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/7/16 4:18pm ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Watt should be able to play in Week 1 but likely will receive limited playing time since he is coming off a back injury. He is one of the more valuable players in IDP leagues, but owners should lower their expectations for now because of the injury.
Will Fuller - WRPosted 9/7/16 4:13pm ET
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Fuller is expected to be a deep threat for the Texans this season, so owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be limited in Week 1. Owners may want to keep Fuller out of their lineups until he is completely healthy.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/6/16 8:16am ET
Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt's (back) number of snaps and role in Week 1 has yet to be determined. He is definitely expected to play in Week 1, according to two team sources.
Huddle Up: Watt is in a class by himself at the defensive line spot in IDP leagues. Even if he plays half his normal load, he's still among the top options at the position in Week 1.
J.J. Watt - DEPosted 9/4/16 9:42am ET
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) is expected to play Week 1, according to a source. Watt underwent back surgery less than two months ago.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Watt will be able to play the entire game, so owners will need to monitor his practice participation this week. He can be a starter in IDP leagues, but owners should lower their expectations because of the injury.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 8/28/16 7:12pm ET
Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 11 of his 13 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in a 34-24 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: Osweiler is an unknown as he enters his first season as a full-time starter, but a solid supporting cast makes him worth a look as a midrange QB2. He could develop into a decent trade chip.
