• DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/16/19 8:26pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was targeted 163 times during the regular season while the second highest total on the team was 45 targets.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was targeted at least 10 times in 11 regular season games this season and received 10 targets in the playoff game. He will continue to be the main option in the Texans passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues. Hopkins could even be the first receiver off the board.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR
    Posted 1/7/19 9:05am ET

    Houston Texans WR Demaryius Thomas (Achilles') told the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson he's 'not thinking about retirement' and 'would love to finish my career (with the Texans).'

    Huddle Up: Thomas faces a long rehab this offseason and won't return to Houston at the $14 million he is owed in 2019. The Texans also will get Will Fuller and Keke Coutee back fully healthy, although durability is not something either player's strong point. Expect Thomas to be in another uniform next season, most likely as a complementary starting receiver. His days as a 100-catch wideout are almost certainly over.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/6/19 9:24am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins drew extensive praise Sunday, Jan. 6, in head coach Bill O'Brien's season-ending news conference. 'I don't think there was anybody better in the league,' O'Brien said. ' ... Every team knew that we were going to him on every play.'

    Huddle Up: Hopkins set career highs in receptions (115), receiving yards (1,572) and catch percentage (70.6) in 2018 and was a top-six fantasy wideout for the third time in the last four seasons. The Texans have more weapons than ever if WRs Will Fuller, Demaryius Thomas and Keke Coutee are healthy, but Hopkins will continue to be an elite WR1.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/6/19 11:08am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) had his arm in a sling Sunday, Jan. 6, the day after suffering a Grade # AC joint sprain in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Hopkins said he won't require offseason surgery.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins should be more than fine with nine months to recover, and he'll remain an elite WR1 option in drafts this summer.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR
    Posted 1/6/19 1:03pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Demaryius Thomas (Achilles') said he hopes to return to the Texans next season.

    Huddle Up: The Texans could consider releasing Thomas this offseason but may not be on a field until training camp because he is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon. Thomas is not as productive as he has been in the past but could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver if he can stay healthy.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 11:12am ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) will be active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a team official.

    Huddle Up: Coutee has not played since the end of November because of the hamstring injury but has been a solid fantasy option when he has been healthy. He is a risky option this week because he could aggravate the injury but can also be considered a flex option in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 3:07pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) went to the locker room just before halftime after having his shoulder looked at by trainers two plays prior.

    Huddle Up: The Texans would be in dire straits if Hopkins is not able to return. Keke Coutee has played an important role in his return, but Hopkins is an irreplaceable player. Stay tuned for an update.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 3:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) returned to action in the second half after having his shoulder checked out.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 4:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee caught 11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in his first playoff game, but the Texans lost to the Indianapolis Colts 21-7 Saturday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Coutee played minimally in his first year with a nagging hamstring injury. When he did play with Will Fuller out, he was lights out. Houston boasts a solid wide receiver corps with DeAndre Hopkins, Coutee and Fuller, but Coutee isn't as valuable when Fuller is healthy. Still, he's an extremely alluring fantasy sleeper in 2019.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 1/5/19 4:53pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller tallied just five rushing attempts for 18 yards while adding eight catches for 63 yards in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: The Texans were forced to pass early and often, mostly taking Miller and the running game out of the equation. He did play a significant role in the passing game, but he can't be drafted as more than low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 1/5/19 4:48pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 29 of 49 passes for 235 yards, throwing one touchdown and one interception in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 5. He added 76 yards on the ground.

    Huddle Up: Watson was pressured frequently, as is customary behind a poor offensive line. He still managed a respectable yardage total, but had some errant throws every now and then. Watson's running ability and talented receiving corps put him comfortably in QB1 territory heading into 2019.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 4:42pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught five of 10 targets for 37 yards in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins is arguably the best wide receiver in the game but was held in check today by an underrated Colts defense. It was a tough pill to swallow in the NFL playoffs, but he'll be on plenty of teams in the fantasy playoffs next season and deserves consideration in the middle of the first round.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/5/19 5:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) suffered a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in the first half of the Texans' wild-card playoff loss. Hopkins said he played through a lot of pain in the second half but didn't want to come out of the game.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 1/4/19 8:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is expected to play against the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Coutee has flashed plenty of potential when healthy, but he missed the final five games of the regular season. Needless to say, he could be dealing with some rust, making him a risky play in playoff contests.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 1/3/19 9:05am ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is 'trending in the right direction' as he attempts to overcome a hamstring injury and play in the Saturday, Jan. 5, wild-card game, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Coutee's status likely will be a game-time decision.

    Huddle Up: The hammy issue has helped limit the wideout to six games -- and only two since Week 7 -- in his rookie season. But when he plays, he's been involved, averaging 6.8 targets, 4.7 receptions and 47.8 yards per contest -- and most of that is with since-injured WRs Demaryius Thomas and Will Fuller also playing along with stud WR1 DeAndre Hopkins. Check the game-day inactives list if you're thinking about using him.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/3/19 2:06pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 3, but is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been one of the best receivers in the NFL this season and should continue to be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 1/3/19 2:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 3, but is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Coutee is expected to be a game-time decision but was a full participant in all three practices this week. He has played well when he is healthy but may be too risky of an option for owners this week.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/2/19 1:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been limited throughout the season with foot and ankle issues and has still performed consistently week-to-week. There is a strong argument for him to be the No. 1 wide receiver drafted next season.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 1/1/19 3:03pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Jan. 1.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has essentially been limited all year en route to leading the league in receiving. He's highly unlikely to miss this weekend's playoff contest. Heading into next year he's arguably the top fantasy wide receiver.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 12/31/18 5:09pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) has a chance to play in the Wild Card playoff game, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Coutee has not played since the end of November, but owners can keep an eye on his practice participation during the week. He has played well when healthy, but owners probably should look for other options for their lineups.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/30/18 2:53pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught 12 passes for 147 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been targeted at least 10 times in each of the last five games and has three straight 100-yard games. He is a must-start option in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/30/18 2:49pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 56 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been a solid fantasy option this season when he has been healthy and has three rushing touchdowns in his last five games. He can be considered a fine No. 2 running back in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Deshaun Watson - QB
    Posted 12/30/18 2:40pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 25-for-35 for 234 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17. He also rushed for 66 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Watson has been playing well over the last several weeks and has seven total touchdowns over the last three weeks. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/28/18 6:33am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to play in Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Miller will be an RB2 option in the season finale. The team is still playing for seeding and could end up in the top seed if all the dominoes fall their way.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/28/18 8:21am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) will be 'good to go' Sunday, Dec. 30, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: The Texans have plenty to play for, including the possibility of the top seed, and Miller will be an RB2 in fantasy.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/28/18 2:37pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Miller appears to be in good shape for the regular season finale, but the team could play it safe and limit his work in the game to preserve him for the playoffs. It's likely he, Alfred Blue and D'Onta Foreman all touch the ball and share the workload, limiting each player's fantasy value.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR
    Posted 12/28/18 2:35pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 28, but he is off the injury report prior to the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners know the drill by now. He takes off mid-week practices or goes limited rather frequently, but he is up for game day and he hasn't missed a beat.

  • Keke Coutee - WR
    Posted 12/28/18 2:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 28 and he is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Coutee has shown glimpses of brilliance this season but a nagging hamstring injury from the summer has bugged him for most of his first NFL campaign. He'll be an intriguing fantasy play heading into 2019 if he can finally get right.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/27/18 9:12am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) said Thursday, Dec. 27, he is feeling 'way better' about his sprained ankle.

    Huddle Up: Miller has essentially missed the last two games with the injury and would like to return for Sunday's crucial game with the Jaguars with the AFC South title still not locked up. Miller got in a limited practice Wednesday, and we'll see if he can ramp things up at all here to close out the week.

  • Lamar Miller - RB
    Posted 12/27/18 1:11pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Miller appears to be on track to play in the Week 17 game as long as he does not suffer a setback. He can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues if he receives his normal workload.
