Will Fuller Comes Up Big In Season Debut

Texans wide receiver Will Fuller made his season debut on Sunday after missing the team's first three games with a broken collarbone. He made the most of it, catching four passes for 35 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Though the touchdown numbers likely won't continue at this rate, expect Fuller's yardage totals to increase...

DeAndre Hopkins Continues Strong Play

Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins continued his impressive season with a ten catch, 107 yard, one touchdown performance in Houston's win over the Tennessee Titans. Hopkins has been a major part of Houston's offense all season and showed that Will Fuller's return won't negatively affect his performance. Hopkins should continue putting up strong numbers.

Lamar Miller Scores Twice Against Titans

Texans running back Lamar Miller scored twice--once on the ground and once via reception--against the Tennessee Titans. It was a strong game for Miller, who had been losing touches to rookie D'Onta Foreman but saw the bulk of the touches early in Week 4. Miller's performance could signal that he'll hold onto his starting job... Read More

Deshaun Watson Has Huge Game In Week 4 Win

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in Houston's 57-14 win over the Tennessee Titans. It was a big day for Watson, who connected with Will Fuller--in his first game back from a broken collarbone--for two scores. Watson is starting to look like a strong fantasy starter after putting up... Read More

Tyler Ervin Ruled Out

Houston running back and kick returner Tyler Ervin has been ruled out for the rest of Houston's Week 4 game against the Titans with a knee injury. Expect Will Fuller to see time returning kicks for the rest of the game. If Ervin misses time, Fuller will likely gain value in leagues with return yardage.

Braxton Miller Inactive, Houston Goes With Four Receivers

Texans receiver Braxton Miller is a healthy scratch for the team's Week 4 game against the Titans. Four receivers will play for Houston: DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Bruce Ellington, and the newly-signed Chris Thompson. Miller being designated as inactive is a surprise--he had been starting for the team during Fuller's absence. Miller is now droppable... Read More

Top 10 Fantasy Football Lineup Busts - Week 4

We're about to reach the quarter-mark of the 2017 NFL season and the fantasy football picture still feels unsettled. For example: is Jordan Howard going to live up to his ADP? Uhh, maybe! Were Brandin Cooks' first two weeks of usage a fluke and this is what we get moving foward? Hmm, I don't know!... Read More

Ryan Griffin Has Upside Against Titans

Texans tight end Ryan Griffin has established himself as the team's primary receiving option at the TE position after a five catch, 61-yard performance in Week 3. Griffin, who took over for the injured C.J. Fiedorowicz, will look to continue that productivity against the Titans. Griffin isn't guaranteed to have a strong game, but there... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Limited With Knee Injury, Should Still Put Up Strong Numbers

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been limited all week with a knee injury, but he is expected to play in Week 4 against Tennessee. If he suits up, Hopkins is a strong start as always--with Will Fuller returning to Houston's lineup, Hopkins should see looser coverage while still receiving the bulk of Houston's... Read More

Despite Expanded Role, Sit D'Onta Foreman

Texans running back D’Onta Foreman is going to continue to grab a larger role in the team’s offense, but don’t expect Week 4 to be the time he shines--at least not in the run game. Foreman has shown himself to be capable at catching passes out of the backfield, which gives him an advantage this... Read More

Sit Lamar Miller Against Titans

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller should find it tough going in Week 4 against a Titans team that held Seahawks running back Chris Carson in check last week. Add to that the fact that Miller will continue to cede more and more carries to rookie D’Onta Foreman and you get a dim picture of... Read More

Deshaun Watson Should Have Good Fantasy Week

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson should be in line for a solid performance against the Titans in Week 4. The Titans allowed Seattle's Russell Wilson to put up big fantasy numbers a week ago and Watson's ability to move with the football should give him those same opportunities. The return of receiver Will Fuller helps... Read More

Will Fuller Should Play Sunday

Texans receiver Will Fuller should return from a collarbone injury this week, head coach Bill O'Brien says. Fuller is a tremdously fast player who should bring a new dimension to Houston's anemic passing game. Fantasy owners should monitor his usage this week and see how his presence helps the rest of the team's offense.

Will Fuller Is Practicing

Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (collarbone) has returned to practice, though it is still unclear if he has progressed to a point that will allow him to play in Week 4. Still, it's an encouraging sign for the second-year receiver. When healthy, he could be a sneaky fantasy play in deeper formats. His presence should... Read More

Duane Brown Continues Holdout

Houston Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown's holdout has "no end in sight," an anonymous source tells NBC's Mike Florio. Brown's continued absence hurts the Texans offense--a return would boost the fantasy prospects of everyone involved with the team. That return looks unlikely before Week 8, though, and it increasingly appears that even that might be... Read More

Will Fuller May Return In Week 4

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller has missed the first three games of the 2017 season after breaking his collarbone during the preseason, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller may be nearing a return, possibly as soon as Sunday's matchup with the Tennessee Titans. Fuller, who flashed his speed last season but was fairly... Read More

Deeper Sleepers for Standard Fantasy Football Leagues (Week 4)

Another week has gone by and we finally--FINALLY--got one of those monster weeks where lots of players go off. ESPN's Bill Barnwell ranked the 1:00 pm games as the seventh-most exciting slate of games since the introduction of the RedZone Channel in 2009. There were a lot of high scores and a lot of big...

Bruce Ellington Scores Touchdown Against New England

One of the biggest mysteries surrounding the Houston Texans seems to have been solved in the team's Week 3 loss to New England -- the mystery of who the team's No. 2 receiver was. Wide receiver Bruce Ellington had four catches on seven targets, hauling in 59 yards and a touchdown. Ellington, who was signed during the... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Sees Reduction In Targets But Still Produces

The Houston Texans have been targeting wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins over and over in the passing game, but in the team's loss to New England Hopkins was only looked at eight times. He turned those into seven catches for 76 yards, but failed to reach the end zone. Hopkins remains the player to own in... Read More

D'Onta Foreman Continues To Show Improvement

Houston Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman only had 25 rushing yards in Houston's Week 3 loss to New England, but he added 65 yards as a receiver and continued to cut into starter Lamar Miller's share of the touches. Fantasy owners who were hesitant to add Foreman might want to start thinking about making the move... Read More

Lamar Miller Puts Up Mediocre Numbers In Week 3

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller didn't do much on Sunday to quell the rumors that his role in the offense was at stake, putting up 56 yards and no scores on 14 carries, plus adding seven yards on one catch. Miller's 4.0 yards-per-carry average isn't bad, but his inability to score and his relative... Read More

Deshaun Watson Has Strong Game In Week 3 Loss

Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns in Houston's 36-33 loss to the New England Patriors. Watson added 41 yards on the ground, though he negated some of those numbers by throwing a pair of interceptions. Prospective fantasy owners should note that one of those interceptions came on a...

Alfred Blue Out Against Patriots

Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman will be the team's main backs. Blue wasn't expected to see many touches if he had played and should not be rostered in any leagues.

"Everyone In The League Knows" Texans Will Throw To DeAndre Hopkins

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien was joking around when he said that "everyone in the league" knows the team will be throwing the ball to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, but the statement should hold true against the New England Patriots in Week 3. Hopkins has been the center of Houston's offense through two games... Read More

Top 10 Fantasy Lineup Busts - Week 3

Another week in the NFL and another disappointing fantasy performance by [insert the name of someone or, more likely, someones from your lineup here].

Alfred Blue Is Doubtful

Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue is officially listed as doubtful for Week 3's game against the New England Patriots. Blue, who was the team's primary backup runner last season, has seen his role reduced due to the presence of rookie D'Onta Foreman. Blue isn't expected to do more than contribute to special teams upon... Read More

Lamar Miller Unlikely To Be Good Fantasy Option In Week 3

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller is still the team's starting running back for another week, holding off rookie D'Onta Foreman, but that doesn't mean he's a good fantasy option. Miller will find it tough going against the Patriots. Expect the Texans to be down early and abandon the run. If Miller can get involved... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Should Have Good Floor, Low Upside In Week 3

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has led the team in targets through two games by a wide margin, something that should continue against the New England Patriots in Week 3. The problem for Hopkins will be turning those targets into catches and yards against a New England defense that should feast on Houston's rookie... Read More

Deshaun Watson Has Limited Upside Against Patriots

Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson makes his second career start on Sunday against the New England Patriots. Watson scored a rushing touchdown in Week 2's win against the Bengals, but he struggled at times in the passing game. That isn't likely to change against the Patriots. Sit Watson unless you don't have a better... Read More

Alfred Blue May Return In Week 3

The Houston Texans might get running back Alfred Blue (ankle) back for Week 3's game with the New England Patriots.
