Fantasy Tip: Washington will not have much time to recover since the team plays the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Owners will have a better idea of his status later in the week, but he has been off to a solid start this season.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett was benched during the Week 4 game because of performance but is receiving another chance at the starting job. Owners probably should avoid Mallett and look for more consistent options.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can monitor the situation during the week, but Shorts likely will be sidelined for at last one week. Jaelen Strong could receive a bigger role because of the injuries the team has at receiver but is not a strong fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Despite suspect quarterback play, Hopkins ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is enjoying a strong season. He has logged at least 11 targets in all four games, making him a reliable option at FantasyScore at the receiver position.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett completed 12 of 27 passes for 150 yards and an interception and was replaced by QB Brian Hoyer in a 48-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. Hoyer finished 17 of 30 for 232 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) looked like the better quarterback, albeit after the game was well out of hand. Neither Mallett ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) nor Hoyer should be used at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) struggled in his season debut, but on the plus side, he led the team in carries. Foster should resume his role as the workhorse back as long as he stays healthy, and better days are in store for him.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett was benched in favor of QB Brian Hoyer during Week 4's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Mallett went 12-for-37 for 150 yards and one interception before giving way to Hoyer, who was 17-for-30 with 232 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Houston was trailing Atlanta by 42 points at the time of the quarterback change and had been held scoreless up to that point. It is unknown who will start Week 5's game against the Indianapolis Colts but neither Mallett ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) nor Hoyer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is an ideal FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Washington ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been off to a solid start with his new team, but this injury could hurt his fantasy value. Owners should avoid Washington for the time being.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) will be active for the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons but will see limited snaps during the game, according to a source. Foster is expected to receive a normal workload in Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) will see his first game action of the season, so he will see a limited amount of snaps. Foster is a risky option for owners on FantasyScore and may be too expensive since he will not receive his normal workload.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could see limited snaps since this would be his first game of the season but does have a favorable matchup this week. Owners could consider using Foster in their lineups, but they may want to lower their expectations.

Houston Texans SS Lonnie Ballentine (knee) and LB Akeem Dent (hamstring) have been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons. OT Duane Brown (hand) is listed as questionable, while OG Brandon Brooks (ankle), LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (hip), OT Derek Newton (ankle), SS Eddie Pleasant (thigh) and OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (calf) are listed as probable. Ballentine and Dent did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2. Brown, Clowney, Joseph and Newton were limited, while Brooks, Pleasant and Su'a-Filo fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) likely would start if Arian Foster misses the game and probably would see a decent amount of work even if Foster does play. It is a favorable matchup for Blue because the Falcons struggle against opposing running backs. Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could also be a solid option if he is active because he could see more touches.
