Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a shoulder sprain, and his injury is considered day to day. There is a chance he is able to suit up for the Week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

"There's two fractures in my back, but those are things you have to push through," Cushing said. "Obviously, it's painful, and I'm not able to get as many reps as I want in practice right now, but I'll be out there Sunday with my team."

Fantasy Tip: Fuller has recorded nine catches and 119 yards in each of the last two games and has been targeted at least six times in all but two games of the season. Fuller could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Miller briefly left the team's Week 13 game because of the injured ribs but should be ready to play this week. He has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his rushing yards over the last few weeks but can still be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Fiedorowicz is more of a TE2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He has a high rate of catches, but he doesn't go for big yardage of touchdowns. As long as he is splitting touches at tight end with Ryan Griffin his ceiling is rather limited.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin co-exists with C.J. Fiedorowicz, splitting the receptions from the tight end position. Neither can be trusted outside of deeper fantasy leagues unless the other suffers some sort of an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes provided a change of pace with started Lamar Miller mostly stuck in neutral. Despite some decent production on his six touches he is only worth a roster spot in the very, very deepest of fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller appears to be healthy again, and he has nine grabs for 119 yards over the past two outings. Still, he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2, and he hasn't visited the end zone since Week 4. He should be a viable WR3 in most fantasy formats against the Indianapolis Colts and their shoddy pass defense in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins re-discovered the end zone for the first time since Week 5, snapping a six-game touchdown drought. He has three or more catches in each of his past eight outings, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2. Still, he remains a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 14 for his high ceiling.
