Texans | Foster impresses as receiver

Tue, 15 Dec 2009 15:51:08 -0800

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans RB Arian Foster impressed the coaching staff in Week 14 for his ability to catch passes, recording four receptions for 54 yards while averaging 12.3 yards per catch. "We're impressed with what Foster did," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "He can learn a lot of things, but he handled his job in protection for the most part pretty good, so I think we just get him involved more, give him an opportunity." RB Chris Brown starts because he is the best blocker and RB Ryan Moats has had the most problems blocking in the backfield.

Texans | Slaton inactive for Week 13

Sun, 06 Dec 2009 08:45:24 -0800

The NFL Network reports Houston Texans RB Steve Slaton (neck) is inactive for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: RB Chris Brown should get a considerable number of touches today, making him a decent choice as a flex play. He faces the Jacksonville Jaguars, whose run defense has slowly improved from its poor showings in the first few weeks, though. RB Ryan Moats may be a bigger factor than some expect, just because Moats provides a change of pace, and the Texans probably aren't comfortable relying on Brown for a hefty workload. For those in PPR formats, especially, Moats is a sneaky flex play if you're short on options.

Texans | Kubiak has confidence in Slaton

Mon, 26 Oct 2009 07:30:47 -0700

Dale Robertson, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said following Week 7 that he remains confident in RB Steve Slaton, even though Slaton was briefly replaced by RB Chris Brown in Week 7 after he lost his fourth fumble of the season. "People smell blood because he's put some balls on the ground," Kubiak said. "Steve's our guy, and I have a lot of confidence in him. It's our job to help him find a way to hold on to the football. He touches it, and good things happen. But at the same time, you can make five big plays and one turnover can get you beat. Steve understands that."

Texans | Moats starting to step up

Fri, 29 May 2009 10:36:44 -0700

Brooke Bentley, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans RB Ryan Moats has been getting the job done working as the No. 2 back during practice and rotating with RB Chris Brown in the spot. Head coach Gary Kubiak has called Moats and Brown his "2a and 2b" backup running backs. Moats has been getting the edge in the competition because he has shown tremendous speed during OTAs and played last season. Moats, at 5-8 and 210 pounds, doesn't have great size and doesn't fit the big-back prototype the Texans have wanted in short-yardage situations. Moats, however, believes he can accomplish the job through his running style.
