Texans | Lamar Miller struggled with efficiency in '16

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 19:01:52 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller finished in the bottom eight of 42 qualifying running backs in 2016 for fantasy efficiency in five of six measured categories. Among running backs with at least 120 offensive touches, he ranked 35th or worse in fantasy points per game (36th), touchdown efficiency (36th), yards per touch (35th), standard fantasy points per touch (38th), and PPR fantasy points per touch (39th). Miller finished 18th in PPR points per game.

Fantasy Tip: He was overused and is better suited for situational duty, which may be the course of action with D'Onta Foreman impressing through a pair of preseason games. The veteran Miller needs to be kept fresh for a playoff push. Even still, gamers can rely on him as a No. 2 back in most setups.

Texans | Jaelen Strong appeals suspension

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 17:19:11 -0700

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong is appealing an NFL-mandated, one-game suspension stemming from a February 2016 arrest for alleged marijuana possession.

Fantasy Tip: Strong is not much of a fantasy consideration in 2017, but there is always a chance he flashes a few times with Will Fuller on the mend. This cracks open the door for Braxton Miller to have another opportunity to showcase his ability. Neither Miller nor Strong should be drafted in conventional setups.

Texans | Tom Savage to begin season as starter

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:11:58 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage has enjoyed a good camp and will begin the season as the starting quarterback, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has never been able to stay healthy for any length of time and has rookie Deshaun Watson behind them on the depth chart, so this will continue to be an ongoing story. With that said, the veteran (17-for-20) has been much sharper than the rookie (18-for-35) in August. Nevertheless, Savage is a low-end QB2 at best for fantasy purposes.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins does not practice

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 18:14:45 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has not practiced much over the last few weeks but probably will be ready for the start of the regular season. He has performed well over the last several years even though the Texans have used multiple quarterbacks during that span. He should be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this season.

Texans | D'Onta Foreman can still improve

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 13:50:24 -0700

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman still has a "long way to go" despite an impressive preseason so far, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Foreman impressed in the Texans' Week 2 preseason game, but he's not where he needs to be. After all, he is in his first professional offseason. Plus, he played behind Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue and Tyler Ervin. That being said, Foreman has the ability to win Houston's backup running back job. View him as a late-round handcuff.

Texans | Bruce Ellington explodes for big game

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:59:08 -0700

Houston Texans RB Bruce Ellington caught four passes for 93 yards in a 27-23 win over the New England Patriots in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been bouncing around the league this offseason, but with Will Fuller out for while, Houston needs someone to step up as it No. 2 and No. 3 receivers. Ellington is a name worth filing away.

Texans | Tom Savage plays well

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:50:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage completed eight of his nine passes for 98 yards and a touchdown in a 27-23 win over the New England Patriots in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Savage was on the mark in this one, and he remains in line to open the year as the starter. He could be a low-end QB2, but with Deshaun Watson waiting in the wings, Savage might not even be under center all season.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins sits out again

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 23:35:03 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 15, and he has not practiced since Monday, Aug. 7. Head coach Bill O'Brien indicated that Hopkins is "doing fine," and has previously likened Hopkins' practice schedule leading up to the regular season as being on a "pitch count."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't worry themselves about Hopkins' health. The concerns stem from uncertainty at quarterback, but Hopkins is a proven producer that should offer a statistical floor as a WR2.

Texans | Braxton Miller has sprained ankle

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 12:33:13 -0700

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (ankle) is dealing with a mild ankle sprain, but his prognosis is positive.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has a good opportunity to earn the Texans' No. 2 wide receiver spot with Will Fuller sidelined. The talent is there, but Miller is still learning after just one season in the NFL. View the sophomore as a late-round flier.

Texans | Deshaun Watson works with first-team

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 09:27:41 -0700

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson took first-team repetitions in practice Monday, Aug. 14, but head coach Bill O'Brien downplayed it saying that's how the repetitions lined up.

Fantasy Tip: Watson has a chance to unseat Tom Savage as the starter, but he's more of a dynasty option.
