Houston Defense Forces Three Turnovers Against Patriots

The final score of 34-16 does not accurately depict just how well the Texans’ defense performed against the Patriots. A.J. Bouye and Andre Hal each picked off Tom Brady, who had just two interceptions all season, and Whitney Mercilus and Brian Cushing each recorded a sack. On special teams, Houston had its moments, yielding a... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Scores Houston’s Only Touchdown of The Day

C.J. Fiedorowicz was targeted several times in the red zone against the Patriots, including a 10-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter that wound up being Houston’s only trip to the end zone. He finished the game with three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown, significantly outplaying fellow tight end Ryan Griffin, who failed... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Targeted Nine Times, Totals 65 Yards

DeAndre Hopkins saw a team-high nine targets, hauling in six of those passes for 65 yards as the Texans fell to the Patriots, 34-16. The 24-year-old displayed glimpses of excellence over the last month, but could not come away with any consistent production. With such an unsteady quarterback situation, Hopkins’ fantasy value heading into 2017... Read More

Lamar Miller Touches the Ball 23 Times in Loss to Patriots

After carrying the ball 31 times against the Raiders, Lamar Miller saw a slight dip in touches as a result of the Texans falling behind the Patriots early.

Brock Osweiler Tosses Three Picks in Second Half

After a strong first half against the Patriots, the wheels fell off for Brock Osweiler. The 26-year-old signal caller threw three second-half interceptions, finishing the day with 23 completions on 40 attempts, 198 yards, a touchdown and the three picks. Houston’s defense and running game were quite effective on Saturday, but the passing game could... Read More

Houston Defense Faces Tough Matchup Against Mistake-Free Patriots

Houston’s defense has been playing well of late, forcing 14 turnovers in nine games since its Week 9 bye. However, New England allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing defenses this year, turning the ball over a league-low 11 times — four of those came while Tom Brady was serving his four-game suspension. The Texans... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Should See Double Coverage Against Patriots

Heading into a daunting meeting with the Patriots, DeAndre Hopkins has 43 receptions, 320 yards and a touchdown over his last four games. In Week 3, the Patriots held him to four catches for 56 yards on eight targets, but the Texans have found ways to get him more involved over the last month. If... Read More

Healthy Lamar Miller Likely to Endure Heavy Workload in Divisional Round

Lamar Miller wasn’t overly efficient in the wild-card game against the Raiders but will look to pick up the pace against the Patriots on Saturday. The 25-year-old ran for 80 yards on 21 carries against the Pats in Week 3, adding four receptions for 27 yards. Miller holds value because of how heavily Houston will... Read More

Brock Osweiler Looks to Redeem Week 3 Dud Against Patriots

Brock Osweiler was fairly successful last weekend against the Raiders and will try to gain some momentum for a rematch with the Patriots. Back in Week 3, Osweiler completed 24 of 41 passes for 196 yards and an interception as the Texans were held scoreless in New England. Still, against a relatively tough Patriots defense,...

Houston DEF Smothers Raiders in Wild-Card Game

The Houston defense, led by Jadeveon Clowney, shut down the Raiders from the start on Saturday. Clowney’s first-quarter interception set up the first score of the game, and the Texans picked off rookie Connor Cook two more times. Whitney Mercilus delivered two of the team’s three sacks, with D.J. Reader picking up the third. Houston’s... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin Split Touches Against Raiders

C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin canceled each other out on Saturday against the Raiders, managing two catches for 35 yards and three receptions for 29 yards, respectively.

DeAndre Hopkins Hauls in First Career Postseason Touchdown

DeAndre Hopkins finished Saturday’s game with five catches for 67 yards, including a touchdown grab in the second quarter that gave the Texans a 13-point lead. That score was set up by a 38-yard connection between Brock Osweiler and Hopkins, marking the 24-year-old’s longest reception since Week 5. Hopkins led the team with nine targets... Read More

Quantity Over Quality for Lamar Miller in Wild-Card Win

Lamar Miller reverted back to his early season form on Saturday, carrying the ball 31 times for 73 yards and a touchdown. The 31 rushes marked a career high for Miller, who averaged 19.14 carries this season but just 12.13 a year ago. Only once this year, however, did he manage fewer than the 2.4... Read More

Brock Osweiler Serviceable Against Raiders

Brock Osweiler was surprisingly effective against the Raiders, completing 14 of his 25 pass attempts for 168 yards and a touchdown. After being benched in favor of Tom Savage late in the season, Osweiler regained the starting job when Savage suffered a concussion in Week 17. The 26-year-old watched from the sidelines as Peyton Manning... Read More

Houston DEF Should Feast on Injury Plagued Raiders

Houston’s defense heads into the postseason with four consecutive double-digit fantasy showings, recording 10 sacks and forcing six turnovers over that span. The Raiders, normally an offensive juggernaut, have been reduced to a shell of their former selves. They will be without quarterback Derek Carr and left tackle Donald Penn on Saturday afternoon, meaning Jadeveon... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz a Touchdown Threat Against Raiders

C.J. Fiedorowicz salvaged a quiet Week 17 performance with a third-quarter touchdown catch against the Titans, and will now face a Raiders team that allowed the ninth most fantasy points to the tight end position this season. He saw a season-high 10 targets (with 82 yards on six receptions) back in Week 11 against Oakland.... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Looks to Build Off Week 17 Success

After a 14-week drought, DeAndre Hopkins totaled over 100 yards in Week 17, with Brock Osweiler back under center for most of the game. Osweiler will start for the Texans in the wild-card game, and while that brings forward a lot of uncertainty with regard to how Houston’s offensive unit will perform, Hopkins is likely... Read More

Lamar Miller at Full Health for Game Against Raiders

Lamar Miller sat out the final two games with an ankle injury but is expected to return to the field on Saturday for the wild-card game against Oakland.

Brock Osweiler Back Under Center for Wild Card Game

With Tom Savage (concussion) ruled out for Saturday’s matchup with the Raiders, Brock Osweiler will be inserted back into the starting lineup. He is coming off a Week 17 performance in which he completed 21 of 40 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown off the bench. The Raiders allowed at least 240 yards passing... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (1/5/16): NBA DFS Advice

Thursday night’s eight-game slate is headlined by Russell Westbrook vs. James Harden Pt. 3, but there is a ton of talent to go around elsewhere. C.J. McCollum has been tearing it up with Damian Lillard sidelined, but he has risen up to $9,000, so he is not as appealing as he had been just a... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Catches Fourth Touchdown of Season

C.J. Fiedorowicz wasn’t as productive as usual in Week 17 against the Titans, snagging just two of his seven targets for 12 yards. He did, however, catch a touchdown pass from Brock Osweiler in the third quarter for his fourth score of the season. Ryan Griffin totaled just two catches for 10 yards, and Stephen... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Reaches 100-Yard Mark in Week 17

After more than a three-month wait, fantasy owners who stuck with DeAndre Hopkins — and whose championship matchups carried into Week 17 — were finally rewarded with a big fantasy performance.

Alfred Blue Struggles Against Titans, Splits Carries With Jonathan Grimes

Alfred Blue served as the Texans’ lead back for the second straight game in Week 17, carrying the ball 11 times for just 28 yards. Blue’s lack of success caused third-string back Jonathan Grimes to see more action than usual, but Grimes fared even worse, gaining just 16 yards on eight rushes. Grimes, however, did... Read More

Tom Savage Leaves Game with Concussion; Brock Osweiler Steps up in Relief

Tom Savage completed five of his eight pass attempts for 25 yards before leaving the game in the second quarter with a concussion.

Houston Defense Still Strong Without Jadeveon Clowney

Top pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) will not play in Week 17, damaging Houston’s fantasy value.

With Marcus Mariota lost for the season, Matt Cassel will make his first start of... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Remains Viable TE1 Despite Limited Upside

A week after sitting out with a concussion, C.J. Fiedorowicz returned to his heavy-usage ways, catching four of his seven targets for 42 yards.

Lamar Miller Out, Alfred Blue Earns Second Consecutive Start

Lamar Miller will sit out Houston’s regular season finale with an ankle injury, meaning Alfred Blue will make his second consecutive start.

The Titans have yielded the fifth-fewest yards rushing and the second-fewest fantasy points... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Has One Last Chance for Success Against Vulnerable Titans

After providing a glimmer of hope that he could produce with Tom Savage under center, DeAndre Hopkins regressed in Week 16, totaling just 43 yards. Savage failed to show an ability to get the Texans’ offense going, and that is unlikely to change in Week 17 against the Titans. That said, Tennessee has allowed the... Read More
