Will Fuller Kept off the Field; Jaelen Strong, Braxton Miller Provide Little Value

Despite reports that Will Fuller (hamstring) would, in fact, be active for Sunday night’s matchup with the Colts, the rookie wideout was held off the field for the entirety of the game. As a result, Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller saw more playing time than usual, but neither player made much of an impact. Strong... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Largely Ineffective in Week 6

DeAndre Hopkins caught nine passes for 71 yards against the Colts. While these numbers equate to strong production in PPR leagues, his performance leaves a lot to be desired by standard-league owners. Hopkins wasn’t lacking in targets — Brock Osweiler threw his way 15 times — but heavy pressure from Vontae Davis and Osweiler’s overall... Read More

Lamar Miller Leads Way for Houston with 178 Yards, Two Touchdowns

Lamar Miller enjoyed his best game of the season in Week 6 against the Colts. With quarterback Brock Osweiler continuing to struggle for most of the game, the Texans relied heavily on Miller, who carried the ball 24 times for 149 yards and his first touchdown of the season. He also added 29 yards and... Read More

Brock Osweiler Struggles Early, Leads Comeback Win over Colts

Brock Osweiler looked completely inept over the first three quarters of Sunday night’s win over the Colts. He completed just 11 of his 22 passes for 89 yards and an interception, but went 14-for-17 with 180 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions throughout the fourth quarter and overtime as he pulled the Texans out of...

Jake Odorizzi Logs Career-High 187.2 Innings in 2016

Jake Odorizzi was -- for the most part -- a reliable asset in 2016, with 17 quality starts in 33 appearances. He finished with a 3.69 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, 166 K in 187.2 IP and a 10-6 record. The 26-year-old was given just 4.67 runs of support per outing, and walked away with 17... Read More

Chris Archer Avoids 20 Losses, Closes Rough Season With Strong Second Half

Chris Archer spun 6.2 strong innings in his final start of the 2016 campaign, holding the White Sox to three runs as he earned the win and improved to 9-19. He fired off six consecutive quality starts to close out the season, but still managed just a 4.03 ERA on the year, with 233 K... Read More

BREAKING: Will Fuller Active, but Will Be Limited

Will Fuller (hamstring), originally expected to miss Houston’s Week 6 matchup with the Colts, is active for Sunday night’s contest. The rookie will likely be limited, but fantasy owners without a reliable alternative could take a shot with Fuller and hope he makes the most of his playing time. Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller are... Read More

Will Fuller Likely Out for Week 6; Jaelen Strong, Braxton Miller to Be More Involved

Will Fuller is unlikely to play in Week 6 with a hamstring injury that had limited his participation in practice. The rookie wideout is averaging eight targets and four receptions over his first five games, and while the Texans could rely heavily on DeAndre Hopkins against the Colts, look for Jaelen Strong to become more...

Big-Play Opportunities to Be Prevalent for Will Fuller in Week 6

Will Fuller caught just one pass in Week 5, with the Vikings’ defense smothering Brock Osweiler from start to finish. The rookie wideout is still averaging 16.4 yards per reception, but hasn’t broken out a 30-yard play since Week 2. The Colts have allowed seven plays of at least 30 yards this season, with at...

Jaelen Strong Remains off Fantasy Radars for Now

Jaelen Strong has become more of a factor in Houston’s offense over the last two weeks, catching 10 of the 15 balls thrown in his direction for 70 yards over the last two games. However, DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller are still the clear top two targets for quarterback Brock Osweiler. Plus, slot receivers have... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin Active for Week 6 Against Colts

C.J. Fiedorowicz (ankle) and Ryan Griffin (concussion) are both expected to suit up on Sunday for Houston, with Stephen Anderson missing his third consecutive game. Fiedorowicz has eight receptions on 13 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks, and Griffin has caught 13 of his 21 targets for 114 yards... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Primed for Breakout Performance

DeAndre Hopkins has just one game of at least 100 yards so far this year, but that could change when he takes on the Colts this Sunday. In Week 5, he passed Will Fuller for the team lead in targets and receptions, and appears to be trending upwards. Colts cornerback Vontae Davis is not expected... Read More

Lamar Miller to Be Utilized More Heavily in Week 6

Lamar Miller was removed from the game-plan in Week 5 when the Texans fell behind the Steelers early. However, Houston should have no problem sticking with the Colts on Sunday night, meaning Miller should revert back to his 20-touch self. This likely means another 80-to-100-yard game for the 25-year-old, who will have RB1 value even... Read More

Brock Osweiler Looks to Bounce Back Against Colts

Brock Osweiler is coming off his worst game of the season, in which he completed just 45.2% of his passes for 184 yards, one touchdown and an interception. He heads into a Week 6 matchup with the Colts with six touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 70.6 passer rating on the year. However, the Colts offer... Read More

Fantasy Football Buy Low & Sell High Candidates for Week 6

The waiver wire isn't the only place to change the course of your team. The right trade can make or break your season. The key is to buy low on cold players and sell overachieving players whose values have skyrocketed. While this is a well-known method, some owners still tend to overreact to a small sample size, so... Read More

Houston DEF Carved up by Vikings

The Vikings went for 351 total yards in Week 5, putting up 31 points against the Texans despite playing without top wideout Stefon Diggs— in addition to Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson. Houston was particularly unable to stop Sam Bradford, who found Adam Thielen, a third-year wideout with just 426 career yards receiving heading into... Read More

Ryan Griffin Leaves Game With Neck Injury; C.J. Fiedorowicz Steps up For Texans

Ryan Griffin had two catches for eight yards in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Vikings, but left in the third quarter with a neck injury. He is now in concussion protocol, and his status for Week 6 remains uncertain. Griffin’s absence allowed C.J. Fiedorowicz to take on a more prominent role in... Read More

Jaelen Strong Totals Five Receptions, Shows Clear Advantage Over Braxton Miller

Jaelen Strong hauled in five of his career-high nine targets for 39 yards in Week 5’s loss to the Vikings. He has been targeted 19 times over the last three games, making his presence felt in his second NFL season. Braxton Miller, on the other hand, returned from a two-game absence to find his job...

Will Fuller Shut Down by Vikings in Week 5

Will Fuller was a no-show in Week 5, catching just one of his six targets for four yards in what was his worst game as a pro. He has officially been overtaken by DeAndre Hopkins for the team lead in targets and receptions, and has now gone three consecutive weeks without a reception over 30... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Avoids Dud with Late-Game Touchdown

DeAndre Hopkins caught just five passes for 56 yards against the Vikings on Sunday, but a fourth-quarter, garbage-time touchdown grab salvaged his week. It was his third touchdown of the year, and his first since Week 2. The 24-year-old star wideout has still only surpassed 60 yards once this year— he did so 11 times... Read More

Lamar Miller Not a Factor in Week 5; Outproduced by Alfred Blue

Lamar Miller was rendered useless in Houston’s Week 5 loss to the Vikings. With the Texans falling behind early, they had to rely heavily on the passing game, and Miller came away with just eight carries for 20 yards. It was the first game of the season in which the 25-year-old didn’t see 20 touches,... Read More

Brock Osweiler the Latest Victim of Minnesota’s Defensive Attack

Like those before him (a group that includes Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton and Eli Manning), Brock Osweiler couldn’t get anything going against the undefeated Vikings in Week 5. He threw for just 182 yards, one touchdown and one interception on the day, managing just a 45.2% completion percentage and a 56.1 passer rating, yet was... Read More

Turnovers, Sacks Will Be Hard to Come by for Houston DEF

Houston limited Marcus Mariota to 202 yards, no touchdowns, one interception and a 54.1 passer rating in Week 4, but recorded a season-low one sack in its first game without star defensive end J.J. Watt. The Texans received a boost from Will Fuller’s punt return touchdown, but that is not likely to be an every-week... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz In, Stephen Anderson Out; Ryan Griffin Should Maintain Starting Role

C.J. Fiedorowicz (knee) is expected to play in Sunday’s game against Minnesota, but Stephen Anderson (hamstring) will sit out for the second straight game. In Week 4, Fiedorowicz hauled in four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown— the only touchdown scored by a Houston tight end this year. Regardless, Ryan Griffin has separated himself... Read More

Braxton Miller Set to Return; Jaelen Strong Not Fantasy Relevant

Braxton Miller returned to practice on Thursday and is expected to suit up for Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings. The rookie wideout had two catches over his first two games, but has missed the last two contests with a hamstring injury. Miller isn’t worth starting in any format this week against a tough Vikings defense,... Read More

Will Fuller Could Have Tough Time Against Vikings

Will Fuller pulled in a career-high seven receptions in Week 4, totaling 81 yards and scoring his second receiving touchdown of the year. He also returned a punt for a touchdown, giving him his best fantasy performance to date. Minnesota, Houston’s Week 5 opponent, has yielded just three plays of more than 20 yards to... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Could Be in for Another Quiet Week

DeAndre Hopkins has not been himself so far this year, with 113 of his 227 yards coming in one of his four games. He has managed just five receptions for 60 yards over the last two weeks, and now faces a very talented Minnesota secondary. The Vikings have yet to give up 100 yards to... Read More

Lamar Miller Still Safe to Start vs. Vikings

Lamar Miller is averaging 87.75 yards rushing this year, and the Vikings have allowed 82.5 yards rushing per game over the first four weeks. Fantasy owners basically know what they are getting this week— Miller has accounted for 78% of Houston’s carries and yards on the ground. However, in order to join the RB1 group,... Read More

Brock Osweiler Not Worth Starting in Week 5

Brock Osweiler heads into a Week 5 matchup against the Vikings with five touchdowns and six interceptions on the year. His top target, DeAndre Hopkins, has had a sluggish start to the season. Will Fuller, despite enjoying a strong rookie campaign, has made some untimely drops. Houston has little depth at the receiver spot with... Read More
