Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 21 Dec 2014 15:34:14 -0800
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson posted six catches for 65 yards in the Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens, giving him 1,002 receptions for his career. He is the 10th player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson has had a turnstile at quarterback this season, but he has continued to produce. He is a solid FantasyScore option heading into Week 17 despite the fact the Texans are down to third-string QB Case Keenum.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) will have Case Keenum throwing to him and is a bit of a risk on FantasyScore today.

Fantasy Tip: Damaris Johnson ($3,000; 6.0% of your cap) could be worth a flyer if you're looking to load up in other spots on FantasyScore.

Houston Texans LB Mike Mohamed (concussion), QB Tom Savage (knee), TE Garrett Graham (ankle) and OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (back) all did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 16 game. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Brian Cushing (ankle), LB Akeem Dent (neck), CB Kareem Jackson (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), LB Whitney Mercilus (back), WR DeVier Posey (calf) and LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) all fully practiced and are probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: After Johnson got in a full practice Thursday, he took the day off Friday. It may be nothing more than being cautious. It is good news that he is listed as probable, and will cost $6,000 in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Foster looks like he is good to go this week, but he is not a great starting option in FantasyScore at $7,300 this week. With an inexperienced quarterback, and going against one of the best run defenses in the NFL, there have been much better weeks to start Foster.

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.
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 07:00:28 -0800
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.
