Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 23 Nov 2014 18:27:14 -0800
Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to return to a starting role after QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Mallett will have an MRI, and a tear would likely keep him sidelined several weeks.
Fantasy Tip: The Texans face the Tennessee Titans in Week 13, a team which was carved up for 300-plus yards by Philadelphia's Mark Sanchez. Fitzpatrick could be a sneaky play for FantasyScore owners if he does indeed get the nod.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has four or more receptions in each of his past five games, and eight of the past nine outings. He is a solid low-end WR1 in FantasyScore going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is expected to receive at least 20 touches today and is a solid RB2 on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is expected to receive at least 20 touches and makes for a solid RB2 or flex on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett won't cost you much at all at FantasyScore ($3,900), but the Bengals haven't been terrible against opposing quarterbacks this season. There isn't a whole lot of upside for the rookie gunslinger in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson isn't injured and will suit up against Cincinnati. The Bengals have been adequate in limiting the damage that opposing wideouts do against them this year, but having Ryan Mallett under center has revived Johnson's fantasy value. He'll cost you $6,400 at FantasyScore.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is questionable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Foster would be worked out prior to the game Sunday, Nov. 23, to see if he can play.
Fantasy Tip: If Foster ($7,300) plays against the Bengals, he's a fine option for FantasyScore lineups, since Cincy allows an average of 22.76 fantasy points to running backs this year. Either way, Alfred Blue ($5,800) should have a big enough role to be considered for a flex spot.

Houston Texans CB Kareem Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. LB Max Bullough (hamstring) is questionable, while OT Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee), LB Brian Cushing (knee), LB Akeem Dent (neck), RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle), CB Johnathan Joseph (knee), LB Whitney Mercilus (knee), LB Mike Mohamed (hip), CB Darryl Morris (ankle), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and LB Justin Tuggle (shoulder) are probable. Jackson did not practice Friday, Nov. 21. Bullough, Clowney, Cushing, Dent and Joseph were limited, while the others practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett still isn't worth starting in any format, especially against an above average Cincinnati Bengals pass defense.

Houston Texans CB Kareem Jackson (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. LBs Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee) and Akeem Dent (neck) and CB Johnathan Joseph (knee) were limited. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle), LB Whitney Mercilus (knee), LB Mike Mohamed (hip), CB Darryl Morris (ankle), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and LB Justin Tuggle (shoulder) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: A downgrade this late in the week certainly isn't promising. If Foster is unable to play, Alfred Blue will once again start at running back. The two would split carries if Foster does play, as reported earlier. Foster's FantasyScore price of $7,300 is starting to seem like it won't be worth the investment this week.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) presents a very risky play on FantasyScore this week that you might want to avoid. Blue ($5,800; 11.6%) isn't a very attractive play at that price either if Foster plays.

Fantasy Tip: Foster's status for Week 12 is still unknown, and we may not get any updates until later in the week. Check back to see if he is able to do more in practice tomorrow. Even if he is active, it is not a great matchup for Foster against Cincinnatti. Look elsewhere in FantasyScore this week.
