Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:44:59 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($6,000) has been cleared from the concussion protocol and is expecting to play this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. Although Houston will have a new quarterback under center this week, Johnson has prior chemistry with both of them. He's not the safest wideout at FantasyScore, but he's the better bet than teammate DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600).

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) should suit up against the Baltimore Ravens. The problem is the Ravens are one of the best run-stopping units in the league this year, and Houston will be running with a very inexperienced quarterback. There have been much better weeks to use Foster at FantasyScore than this one.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($6,600) sets up to be a bust this week against the Baltimore Ravens. Not only has he not practiced this week, but Houston will be going with a very inexperienced quarterback this week. Nothing adds up to Hopkins being a good play at FantasyScore.

Houston Texans TE Garrett Graham (ankle), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), LB Mike Mohamed (concussion), QB Tom Savage (knee) and OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (back) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18. LB Brian Cushing (ankle) was limited, while OT Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Akeem Dent (neck), CB Kareem Jackson (knee), LB Whitney Mercilus (back), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and DE J.J. Watt (non-injury) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Johnson will be good to go for Week 16. The Texans quarterback situation should concern FantasyScore owners though, and there are probably safer options available to you this week.

Fantasy Tip: Arian Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) should see a healthy workload this week. Keenum hasn't been on board very long, and the playbook could be scaled back. DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600; 13.2%) makes a suspect play on FantasyScore with all the uncertainty.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has a pretty good connection with both QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum, who will be battling for the start in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis was coached by head coach Bill O'Brien back in college, and Lewis also worked with Johnson in the offseason in South Florida. Keenum connected with Johnson for five touchdown passes last year, and Johnson likes Keenum's approach at the QB position.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($6,000) is recovering from a concussion, so he's not a sure thing to play against the Ravens, but if he does, we think he's a better FantasyScore option than DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600) because of Johnson's familiarity with both QBs. Either way, though, you're taking a big risk with them in your daily lineups.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:39:35 -0800
Fantasy Tip: After missing last week, Johnson ($6,000) is looking to return in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, if he returns, he'll be coming back to a very inexperienced quarterback at the helm, which doesn't inspire confidence for your FantasyScore lineup.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:37:18 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($6,600) is an extremely risky FantasyScore lineup choice this weekend. Despite facing a weak secondary in the Baltimore Ravens, Hopkins will have a very inexperienced quarterback throwing him the rock. It's hard to trust Hopkins in Week 16.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:34:48 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) is dealing with a new injury this week, but it doesn't appear to be very serious. We expect him to play in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Houston will be going with a QB without much experience and are going up against one of the best run-stuffing units in the league. That's a recipe to avoid Foster at FantasyScore.

Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (ankle), TE Garrett Graham (ankle), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), LB Mike Mohamed (concussion), QB Tom Savage (knee), OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (back) and DE J.J. Watt (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Akeem Dent (neck), CB Kareem Jackson (knee), LB Whitney Mercilus (back) and LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) were limited.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:29:57 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum are the likely candidates to start, but neither is worth investing in on FantasyScore unless you want to spend big at other positions.

The Houston Texans are expected to ask WR Andre Johnson to take a pay cut for future seasons, with an outright release a possibility if he refuses. Johnson will make $10.5 million in 2015 and $11 million in 2016.
