Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:26:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fuller is expected to play in Week 7, but with Denver's stingy secondary looming, he is a risky WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is on track to play in Week 7, but mediocre numbers and matchup with Denver's stout defense make him a poor fantasy play.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Hopkins and Will Fuller will both be good to go Monday night, but the matchup for both is the most difficult one either player will see all season. Hopkins is simply too good to bench in fantasy, but expectations need to be set low. The Broncos have allowed only two receivers to top 60 yards and kept opposing wideouts out of the end zone since Week 1. As such, he's no better than a WR3 this week.

Fantasy Tip: While Fuller's return is a good thing for the Houston offense, he returns against perhaps the league's best secondary, making him a low-end WR3 play at best. Better days are ahead for the rookie, however, as the Texans face the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders over their next three games. Fuller could easily perform at a WR2 level in all three contests.

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (foot) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 20, with a foot injury. He went full in practice Thursday, and he's expected to play in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has struggled with a 59 percent completion percentage, 1,402 yards, eight scores and eight picks. He returns to face his former team in the Denver Broncos, and he's not a strong play except in two-QB leagues.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 20, with a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice Thursday, but he's expected to play in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.
Fantasy Tip: Nuk has been pretty underwhelming with a 31-354-3 line this season, and he faces the stout Denver Broncos defense. He's a midrange WR1 option this week.

Houston Texans OT Derek Newton (ankle) and OG Jeff Allen (concussion) are expected to play in the team's Week 7 game, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Allen will have to pass his concussion tests before he is cleared to play.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately Fuller will be returning to one of the toughest matchups he'll have all year. The Broncos are elite against the pass, allowing just one touchdown to receivers through six games this season. Fuller isn't completely unstartable, but he's no more than a flex this week.

Updating a previous story, Texans CB Kevin Johnson (foot) is expected to be placed on the Reserved/Injured list sometime this week after breaking his foot in a Week 6 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Houston Texans CB Kevin Johnson (foot) suffered a broken foot in his left foot during a Week 6 win over the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source. It is feared Johnson, who played through a Jones' fracture in the same foot in 2015, will miss the remainder of the season.
