Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/26/14 4:05pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) has an excellent chance to return in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans after missing the last two games.
Huddle Up: Alfred Blue should still get some work as well, but Foster is a must-start if he's active going against the Titans, who give up the second-most fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Ryan Mallett - QBPosted 11/24/14 1:45pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) is expected to miss the rest of the season because of the pectoral injury he suffered in Week 12.
Huddle Up: The Texans will turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick for the short-term but could take a look at rookie Tom Savage late in the season if they fall out of playoff contention. Mallett enters the offseason a free agent with minimal starting experience but he's likely to draw interest from QB starved teams.
Ryan Mallett - QBPosted 11/23/14 11:29pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury in the Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he will go for an MRI. He might miss several games if the test shows a tear. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to return to a starting role.
Huddle Up: Houston's passing game has been limited this season with both quarterbacks. We should know Mallet's diagnosis on Monday. Fitzpatrick is nothing more than a middle-of-the-road QB2.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is highly unlikely to suit up Sunday, Nov. 23, for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Alfred Blue would make his second straight start against the Bengals if Foster is inactive. Blue will be a RB2 and should see 20+ touches.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is questionable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Foster would be worked out prior to the game Sunday, Nov. 23, to see if he can play.
Huddle Up: It's an all-too familiar situation for Foster owners after the RB missed the last two days of practice following limited participation Wednesday. Ideally, you also have Alfred Blue ready to swap in, but, if not, get a Plan B lined up.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/20/14 10:07am ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is likely share carries with RB Alfred Blue if he plays in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Seems like the Texans have said this before, and the result was a full workload from Foster. If Foster can play, expect him to have close to his usual duties; otherwise, the team's MO has been to sit Foster if he's not at full capacity, in which case Blue will be the primary ballcarrier.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/20/14 6:29pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after being limited the previous day.
Huddle Up: It's never usually good when a player's status trends the wrong direction during a week, but see if Foster can get back on the field Friday.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/16/14 10:12pm ET
Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried a franchise-record 36 times for 156 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns in place of the injured RB Arian Foster (groin). His 156 yards tied a rookie franchise record previously set by RB Steve Slaton back in 2008.
Huddle Up: Blue now has 234 yards rushing in two starts this year. Foster said he'll be back for Week 12's game against Cincinnati but if he can't go, Foster will be a strong RB2.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/15/14 1:57pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) has been ruled out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Alfred Blue will start in Foster's place. Blue is a RB2 this week against a struggling Browns rush defense.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 11/14/14 12:05am ET
Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will have a limited role if he is able to play in Week 11. Clowney could be limited to pass-rushing opportunities like he was in Week 8.
Huddle Up: It's been a lost season so far for the No. 1 overall pick as he's registered all of two tackles in two games so far. The Texans are hoping to get him back to aid in a late run at the postseason, but time's running short in terms of fantasy purposes.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/14/14 6:10pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns, but he's unlikely to play Sunday, Nov. 16 according to the Houston Chroncile. 'He did some things (Friday), but I think at the end of the day, he and I will talk,' head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'We'll do what's best for Arian Foster No. 1, and we'll do what's best for our team No. 2.' Foster was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Hopefully Foster owners have Alfred Blue/Plan B at the ready as it looks like last week's bye isn't going to be quite enough to get Foster on field.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/13/14 4:30pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) will be a game-time decision for Week 11, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Foster was expected to be fine coming off the Texans' bye week but hasn't practiced yet this week. Get another option lined up now.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/12/14 6:40pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Not a promising start to the practice week for Foster with the Texans coming off the bye last week. Check back Thursday and see if the news is any brighter.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/11/14 4:20pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is expected to play in Week 11 on Sunday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: There is certainly optimism with Foster and the Texans coming off a bye week, but what the RB is -- or isn't -- able to do in practice this week will be a more telling indicator.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/10/14 7:48pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is day-to-day with a groin injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Foster had an extra week of rest courtesy of the team's well-timed bye so see what he can do in practice this week.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/6/14 12:21am ET
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) said Wednesday, Nov. 5, that he plans to play in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns after the team's bye.
Huddle Up: Foster appears on track to play after Houston's bye. However, Alfred Blue should be added as insurance in case Foster's groin keeps him out.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 11/6/14 4:06pm ET
Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (illness, knee) said he is still dealing with some soreness in his surgically repaired knee. Clowney hopes to be able to play in Week 11 but does not know about his status.
Huddle Up: The 2014 season is quickly slipping away from the No. 1 overall pick who has played in 2 games and registered 2 total tackles.
Ryan Mallett - QBPosted 11/5/14 4:10pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett has been named the team's starting quarterback moving forward.
Huddle Up: Mallett, a 2011 third-round pick, is the very definition of an unknown quantity with no starts and only four passes attempted in three-plus seasons. Previous starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, though, threw only 11 TD passes with no 300-yard games in the first 9 starts of the season, so it can't be too much worse for the Houston pass-catchers, can it?
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/4/14 10:29am ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is unlikely to miss time after the bye week in Week 10 due to the groin injury he suffered in Week 9.
Huddle Up: There was certainly cause for concern when Foster hobbled off the field in Week 9 and slammed his helmet to the ground. He may miss some practice time this week, and Foster owners should make sure they have Alfred Blue rostered just in case, but right now it seems to be merely a blip on the radar for Foster's fantasy prospects.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/3/14 12:06am ET
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) suffered a groin injury in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles midway through the third quarter. He slammed his helmet down in disgust upon leaving the field. He will have an MRI to offer more details on how significant his injury is.
Huddle Up: The Texans have a bye this week but Foster's availability could be in doubt for Week 11. If Foster can't play, Alfred Blue would get the start. Blue should be owned in all leagues right now.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 11/3/14 4:36pm ET
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is day-to-day with a groin injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: O'Brien didn't give much of an update. The Texans are on a bye week. Foster should be considered questionable for Week 11 and Alfred Blue needs to be owned in all formats.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 11/3/14 7:47pm ET
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he will evaluate the entire offense during the team's bye in Week 10, including at the quarterback position. However, O'Brien didn't come close to benching QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the team's Week 9 loss, and he didn't single him out when discussing possible changes for Week 11. "I think we have to evaluate everything," said O'Brien, when asked if he'll make a QB change. "I don't think you can always -- and I've said this along -- I don't think you can look at one position and put all the blame on that."
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has thrown for 11 TDs, including three multi-TD games, but has yet to top 300 passing yards and has committed 10 turnovers so far, including nine interceptions. Most telling, though, is that Texans have won only two of their last seven games after a 2-0 start, and that could lead to the Texans seeing what Ryan Mallett can do sooner rather than later.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 10/31/14 3:35pm ET
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to play in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. 'It doesn't look very good for him playing Sunday,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.
Huddle Up: It's a mixed bag of IDP news here as Clowney reportedly is dealing with an unspecified illness that could keep him out Sunday, according to a Friday ESPN report. At least, however, there doesn't look to be any complications with his surgically-repaired knee that sidelined him from Weeks 2-7 before his return last Sunday.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/29/14 9:20pm ET
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Johnson is getting a day of rest but he'll be in the starting lineup this week against the Eagles. Johnson hasn't lived up to expectations in 2014 but he's a WR2 versus a struggling Eagles secondary.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/25/14 10:30pm ET
Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he believes he can improve the performance of the team's offense by making sure WR Andre Johnson receives more touches.
Huddle Up: Johnson's production has fallen off this year, so fantasy owners would love to see him be the target monster he was in previous seasons. That's not going to happen under Bill O'Brien but it would be wise for the Texans to feature Johnson more over the second half of the season. He's a WR2 this week against the Texans.
Jadeveon Clowney - LBPosted 10/24/14 3:53pm ET
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 8, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Clowney will be on a limited snap count if he is active for the game.
Huddle Up: Expect the first-overall pick to play this week after coming real close this past Monday night in Pittsburgh.
Brian Cushing - LBPosted 10/22/14 11:11pm ET
Updated a previous report, Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (knee) will miss at least a week due to his knee injury. The ailment has been bothering him for the past two games.
Huddle Up: Cushing's absence is a blow to Houston's run defense. Tennessee's Bishop Sankey should have a nice fantasy day against a Texans defense giving up just under 119 yards per game on the ground.
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.
