Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:43:02 -0800
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.

Fantasy Tip: After missing last week, Johnson ($6,000) is looking to return in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, if he returns, he'll be coming back to a very inexperienced quarterback at the helm, which doesn't inspire confidence for your FantasyScore lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($6,600) is an extremely risky FantasyScore lineup choice this weekend. Despite facing a weak secondary in the Baltimore Ravens, Hopkins will have a very inexperienced quarterback throwing him the rock. It's hard to trust Hopkins in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300) is dealing with a new injury this week, but it doesn't appear to be very serious. We expect him to play in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Houston will be going with a QB without much experience and are going up against one of the best run-stuffing units in the league. That's a recipe to avoid Foster at FantasyScore.

Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (ankle), TE Garrett Graham (ankle), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), LB Mike Mohamed (concussion), QB Tom Savage (knee), OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (back) and DE J.J. Watt (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Akeem Dent (neck), CB Kareem Jackson (knee), LB Whitney Mercilus (back) and LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) were limited.

Fantasy Tip: Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum are the likely candidates to start, but neither is worth investing in on FantasyScore unless you want to spend big at other positions.

The Houston Texans are expected to ask WR Andre Johnson to take a pay cut for future seasons, with an outright release a possibility if he refuses. Johnson will make $10.5 million in 2015 and $11 million in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for Johnson's fantasy owners. However, the bad news is that Ryan Fitzpatrick is out for the year with a broken leg, and the Texans will have to decide between Thaddeus Lewis or Case Keenum to start against the Ravens this week. The turmoil at QB makes Johnson a hard sell at FantasyScore for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Again, whoever starts still isn't worth a starting spot in daily leagues or seasonal leagues, unless you're looking for value at other positions in daily leagues.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) underwent surgery Monday, Dec. 15, on his broken tibia he suffered in Week 15. QB Tom Savage (knee) will miss at least this week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Tip: Case Keenum has already been signed and could get the spot start this week. While Keenum does have experience with Houston, he's not a starting option at this point on FantasyScore unless you're looking for value at other positions.
