Tom Savage’s Value Limited to Two-QB Leagues

Tom Savage’s first career start didn’t go as planned, but he will draw a much easier matchup in Week 17 against the Titans. Tennessee’s 2,064 yards passing allowed are the second-most in football, and it has surrendered over 300 yards through the air in seven of its last 10 games. Even still, Savage is incredibly...

C.J. Fiedorowicz Reclaims Lead Role in Week 16

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught four of his team-high seven targets for 42 yards in Week 16, recapturing the No. 1 tight end spot from Ryan Griffin, who wasn’t targeted at all on Saturday. After a strong seven-week stretch, Fiedorowicz has failed to reach 50 yards in four consecutive games played, but remains a focal point of... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller Fail to Make Fantasy Impact Against Bengals

In what turned out to be a putrid defensive battle between the Texans and the Bengals, no Houston receiver reached the 50-yard mark. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller each had just six targets, catching three balls for 43 and 39 yards, respectively. There had been hope for fantasy owners that new quarterback Tom Savage would...

Alfred Blue Makes Most of Opportunity, Gains 90 Total Yards

Alfred Blue started in place of the injured Lamar Miller on Saturday night, and played a large role in the offense. He carried the ball 21 times for 73 yards and a touchdown, adding 17 yards through the air on four receptions. Tom Savage struggled to get the passing game going, so Blue was relied... Read More

Tom Savage Struggles in First Career Start Against Bengals

Tom Savage completed 18 of his 29 pass attempts for 176 yards in his first career start on Saturday against the Bengals. The 26-year-old, who has yet to throw a touchdown or an interception in 65 attempts this year, failed to provide any of his receiving weapons with fantasy value, as DeAndre Hopkins led the...

Lamar Miller Ruled Out; Alfred Blue Next Man Up

Lamar Miller (ankle) will not play in Saturday night’s game against the Bengals, sitting out for the first time since joining the Texans. Alfred Blue, who carried the ball 123 times for 464 yards as Houston’s starter after Arian Foster went down in 2015, is expected to assume lead-back duties. The 25-year-old has gained 319...

Houston Defense Deserving of Lineup Spot Against Bengals

Houston’s defensive unit continues to be solid without J.J. Watt, forcing nine turnovers and recording seven sacks over its last nine games. The Bengals rank 23rd in the league with 20.6 points per game, but don’t make many mistakes offensively. Andy Dalton has just one multi-interception game this season, and the Bengals have yet to...

Ryan Griffin, C.J. Fiedorowicz to Split Production in Week 16

Ryan Griffin had a huge showing in Week 15 with C.J. Fiedorowicz sitting out with a concussion, causing a bit of a controversy at the tight end spot on the Texans’ depth chart now that Fiedorowicz is healthy. As stingy as Cincinnati’s defense has been in the passing game, the Bengals have actually yielded the... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins in Line for Heavy Usage in Week 16

In Week 15, DeAndre Hopkins finally flashed the potential that caused so many fantasy owners to pull him off the board in the first round this year— with backup quarterback Tom Savage under center. Now Savage is the Week 16 starter, and Hopkins’ value gets a little boost. Cincinnati, however, has surrendered the fourth fewest... Read More

Lamar Miller Listed as Questionable, Worth Starting if Healthy

Lamar Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game against the Bengals. Miller has found the end zone in back-to-back games for the first time as a Texan, managing 170 yards on 43 carries over that span. Only Ezekiel Elliott and Isaiah Crowell have surpassed 100 yards rushing against the Bengals, but the... Read More

Tom Savage Provides Hope for Texans, but Holds Little Fantasy Value

Tom Savage completed 23 of his 36 pass attempts in relief of Brock Osweiler in Week 15, earning his first career start against Cincinnati in Week 16. The Bengals haven’t allowed an opposing quarterback to score 20 points in standard leagues since Week 8, when Kirk Cousins carved them up for 458 yards. They are... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (12/22/16): NBA DFS Advice

Another small Thursday slate means limited options beyond the elite players. Hassan Whiteside ($9,200) is essentially a lock to terrorize the Lakers, so if you are able to fit him into your lineup, by all means do so. Additionally, Stephen Curry ($8,100) and Kevin Durant ($9,900) are likely to torch the hapless Nets, but in... Read More

Ryan Griffin Explodes for 85 Yards in Week 15

Ryan Griffin was an integral part of Houston’s passing attack in Week 15, catching all eight of his targets for a career-high 85 yards. Six receptions and 69 yards came following the quarterback change in the second quarter, with backup signal-caller Tom Savage relying on his tight end. However, the potential return of C.J. Fiedorowicz... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Shows Signs of Life With New Quarterback

DeAndre Hopkins was given a gift in the second quarter of Sunday’s game in the form of backup quarterback Tom Savage. On the day, Hopkins caught eight balls on a season-high 17 targets (15 from Savage) for 87 yards— his most since Week 2. He couldn’t come up with a touchdown grab, but if Savage... Read More

Lamar Miller Inefficient but Productive in Week 15

Lamar Miller wasn’t overly effective in Week 15 against the Jaguars, but the fantasy production was there, nonetheless. He finished with 63 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown, as well as two receptions for 26 yards. After failing to find the end zone in his first five weeks of the season, Miller has now... Read More

Brock Osweiler Benched for Tom Savage Following Two Picks

Brock Osweiler completed just six of his 11 passes for 48 yards, including two costly interceptions on consecutive passes, before being benched in favor of Tom Savage in the second quarter. Savage, who had just 19 career pass attempts under his belt, finished the day 23-for-36 with 260 yards, helping to orchestrate a fourth quarter... Read More

Houston DEF Faces Juicy Matchup Against Jaguars in Week 15

Houston forced three turnovers against the Colts in Week 14, and will now face a much less formidable Jaguars offense in Week 15. Led by a quarterback in Blake Bortles whose 15 interceptions are the second most in the league, Jacksonville is putting up just 18.5 points per game, the sixth-fewest in football. Even with...

C.J. Fiedorowicz Ruled Out for Week 15; Ryan Griffin to Serve as Starting Tight End

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. The 25-year-old had been targeted at least five times in 10 consecutive games, but will be replaced by Ryan Griffin in Week 15. Griffin has 40 receptions on the year with 347 yards and two touchdowns, and should play a larger role in... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Not a Surefire Play Against Jaguars

DeAndre Hopkins’ only strong fantasy performances have come when he scores a touchdown— something he has done just once since Week 5. He will likely remain touchdown-dependent in Week 15 against the Jaguars. Jacksonville has actually been pretty stingy against opposing receivers, allowing the fourth-fewest yards, the seventh-fewest touchdowns and the sixth-fewest fantasy points. Only... Read More

Lamar Miller Looks to Continue Strong Play Against Jaguars

Lamar Miller is fresh off a monster, 100-yard showing against the Colts, and faces another solid matchup vs. the Jaguars this Sunday. To date, Jacksonville has allowed the 10th-most yards rushing and the sixth-most touchdowns on the ground. Those numbers are padded by matchups with some of the weaker running teams in the league, but... Read More

Brock Osweiler Can Be Ignored for Likely Defensive Battle With Jaguars

Brock Osweiler couldn’t get anything going against the Colts, throwing for 147 yards and an interception on a 58.3% completion percentage. He will face a Jacksonville defense in Week 15 that is allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to the quarterback position. Last meeting with the Jaguars, Osweiler completed 14-of-27 passes for 99 yards and two... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (12/15/16): NBA DFS Advice

Thursday's five-game slate promises several high-scoring affairs, as eight of the 10 teams scheduled to play fall in the bottom half in opponent's points per game. It also offers a lot of parity, with only one player (Anthony Davis) demanding more than $10,000. Sure, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant or both could go off for 40 points... Read More

Houston Defense Records Three Takeaways Against Colts

The Houston Texans' defense managed double-digit fantasy points for just the second time since Week 4, holding the Colts, who had posted 41 points in Week 13 against the Jets, to just 17 points. Quintin Demps and Andre Hal were responsible for the ninth and 10th interceptions of the year, respectively, for Andrew Luck, who... Read More

C.J. Fiedorowicz Produces Little, Suffers Concussion in Week 14

C.J. Fiedorowicz managed three catches for 32 yards on a team-high seven targets on Sunday afternoon. No Texans receiving option made any impact in fantasy leagues on a day in which Brock Osweiler managed just a 58.9 passer rating. The tight end left the game early with a concussion, and his status for Week 15... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Continues Disappointing Season With Two-Catch Showing in Week 14

DeAndre Hopkins came out of Week 14 with just two catches for 33 yards, which somehow led the team. In a season in which the Texans’ top receiver has been a major fantasy disappointment, this was his second-worst showing of the year— he caught one pass for four yards in Week 4. The 24-year-old has... Read More

Lamar Miller Totals 122 Yards, Finds End Zone in Week 14; Alfred Blue Records 17 Touches in Backup Role

Lamar Miller carried the ball 21 times for 107 yards rushing and a touchdown against the Colts on Sunday. He also added 15 yards on his lone reception of the game. It was just the third time all year in which the 25-year-old totaled 100 yards and found the end zone in the same game,... Read More

Brock Osweiler Held Scoreless by Underwhelming Colts Defense

Brock Osweiler followed up his best showing of the year with what is likely his worst.

He actually moved the ball well for much of the... Read More

Houston Defense Faces Matchup With Red-Hot Colts

After posting three double-digit efforts in the first four weeks of the season, the Houston Texans defense has managed at least 10 points just one time since. On the other side, Indianapolis has yielded double-digit fantasy points to opposing defenses just twice in its last eight games. Jadeveon Clowney, Brian Cushing, Kareem Jackson and Jonathan...

C.J. Fiedorowicz a Low-End TE1 for Week 14

C.J. Fiedorowicz has found a way to remain fantasy relevant despite having to share the workload with two other tight ends.

DeAndre Hopkins Maintains WR2 Value in Indianapolis

DeAndre Hopkins caught his first touchdown pass since Week 5 on Sunday, but still hasn’t amassed more than 71 yards receiving since Week 2.
