Fantasy Tip: Foster may not be back with the Texans, but he's still quite valuable if he returns to full health in 2016. Keep an eye on his rehab.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, who had three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Pro Bowl, received praise from former WR Michael Irvin. "We don't know what the ceiling is," Irvin said. "You see the skillset, where he can catch footballs from anyplace in the world. There is no telling what the ceiling can be. He'll be rewriting a lot of records in the NFL." Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and a franchise-record 11 touchdowns in 2015. Hopkins caught a touchdown from four different quarterbacks this year, which is an NFL record.
Fantasy Tip: Irvin is right, Hopkins' ceiling remains incredibly high. Just imagine if he had a strong quarterback slinging him passes on a regular basis. Even with Houston's QB position in flux, Hopkins has solidified his position as an elite fantasy receiver, and he's worth consideration in the first round of drafts.

Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance Foster will be cut before next season, but assuming he lands elsewhere, he could still have legit fantasy value depending on the situation.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is expected to be released before the new league year begins in March, according to multiple sources not authorized to speak publicly. Foster, 30, would have a cap hit of $8.925 million for the 2016 season. The sources also said they expect him to sign elsewhere.
Fantasy Tip: Foster is coming off a torn Achilles', but he still has a lot of name value. He should be able to land at least a timeshare spot next season. He'll be worth watching in the offseason for PPR leagues. The Texans may decide to run with Alfred Blue or draft another back. If Blue is their guy, he'd be an RB3 candidate in fantasy.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith will work with each other for a third straight year in 2016, according to owner Bob McNair. "I see no reason they (Smith and O'Brien) can't (work together). They've been working together. They're bright, and they're independent and they express their opinions," McNair said.

Houston Texans owners Bob McNair admitted that the Texans need to look for a franchise quarterback moving forward. "I don't think there's any question," McNair said. "I've been saying that. The question is what's available, and what's the price? How many draft picks might you have to give up? You can't undermine the rest of your team while you're trying to get a quarterback."
