Texans | J.J. Watt has surgery

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 06:11:01 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) had surgery on his back Thursday, Sept. 29, and he's expected to be ready for the 2017 season. He was out for the season whether surgery was performed or not.

Fantasy Tip: Watt has had multiple back surgeries in the last few months, and there is some concern he won't be able to return to the elite level he has performed. Time will tell, but he'll be a high-end target in IDP leagues with some risk attached to him next season.

Texans | Braxton Miller remains out

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 17:31:40 -0700

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has explosive athleticism, but it could be a while before it translates into consistent production. He doesn't need to be owned outside of keeper leagues right now.

Texans | Jonathan Grimes to miss about a month

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:45:42 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (leg) will be sidelined for "roughly a month" after suffering a cracked fibula in the team's Week 3 game against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes is merely just a handcuff anyway, as Lamar Miller, of course, is the only back worth owning from Houston's backfield. His absence could also give a little extra work to Alfred Blue.

Texans | J.J. Watt should be ready for 2017

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:23:56 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) likely will not be able to play again in 2016, but the Texans believe he will be ready for the 2017 season. The team does not have any long-term concerns about Watt's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners in IDP leagues will need to keep an eye on Watt's recovery over the next several months to see if suffers any setbacks. He will be a risky option for owners moving forward but should still be one of the better players in IDP leagues.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 20:48:07 -0700

Texans | No practice for Jonathan Grimes

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:51:12 -0700

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes has seen some action spelling Lamar Miller, but there is limited fantasy value behind Miller. Grimes has rushed four times for 12 yards and grabbed five of seven targets for 28 yards. He is nothing more than a handcuff option, and his ownership should be limited to the deepest of leagues.

Texans | Braxton Miller misses another practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:47:32 -0700

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Miller missed the Week 3 game against the New England Patriots, but he isn't expected to miss an extended time with the hamstring injury. He is a big-play threat waiting to happen with tremendous athleticism, but he's also a raw receiver who caught just two passes through his first two games of the season. Miller isn't a must-own player at this stage of the season.

Texans | Duane Brown may be available

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:21:24 -0700

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (quadriceps) will be doing more during practice this week in hopes of being able to play in Week 4, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said he expects Brown to play in Week 5 if he is not able to play in Week 4.

Texans | J.J. Watt to IR

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:03:21 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Watt is one of the best players in IDP leagues, but it's unlikely to have the amount of bench spots where you can comfortably sit him out for the off chance he returns late in the season. If you do have space, stash him in hopes of the unlikely. However, reports are his season is likely over.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:52:28 -0700

Texans | J.J. Watt will be placed on IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:47:29 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will be placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Sept. 28, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Although he would be eligible to return Nov. 27, sources indicate Watt is "probably" done for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Watt was likely the No. 1 DT taken in most IDP leagues, so his loss will be felt. Look for Jadeveon Clowney to see an increased role moving forward.
