Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is actually one of the more healthy running backs on Houston's roster right now. He didn't do anything to write home about in his return to action last week, but he's still Arian Foster, which means he could produce any given week. The Indianapolis Colts are allowing 92.5 yards and one touchdown per game to running backs this year, so Foster does have a favorable matchup on paper.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts has been thrown to nearly 10 times per game so far in 2015. While DeAndre Hopkins is still the No. 1 wide receiver on the Texans, Shorts is playing with consistency that can't be ignored. He's only $2,700 (5.4% of cap) on FantasyScore, and will enable higher-priced studs to be rostered, too.

Fantasy Tip: Washington ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) left the Texans' Week 4 contest with the hamstring injury that caused him to miss practice. It's not the most encouraging sign that Washington isn't practicing two days before gameday. Look for better options at the wide receiver position on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Grimes ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) does have some value in PPR leagues, but he just doesn't see the field enough to be warranted as a starting option, especially with Arian Foster now back in the mix.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:56:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) scored his first touchdown of the season last week, even with Arian Foster returning to action. Polk's volume of play isn't very high from week-to-week, however. He's not a reliable option in seasonal leagues or daily leagues.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:48:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Mallett has had his fair share of troubles so far this year, but he's still the Texans' starter. Houston has been forced to pass frequently in 2015 in order to try to keep up with their opponents, making Mallett a sneaky value play in some weeks. He's not the most reliable, but he's one of the cheaper quarterbacks on FantasyScore in Week 5.

Houston Texans SS Quintin Demps (hamstring), LB Akeem Dent (hamstring) and LB Whitney Mercilus (thigh) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 5. RB Chris Polk (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (hip) and SS Eddie Pleasant (thigh) were limited, while LB Max Bullough (shoulder), OT Derek Newton (ankle), OG Xavier Su'a-Filo (calf) and Vince Wilfork (ankle) fully participated.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett should be fine for the game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8, and is receiving another start despite being benched in Week 4. Mallett is not a strong option for fantasy owners and should be avoided.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:46:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Foster recorded only 10 yards on eight carries and also lost a fumble during the game. He should be able to play against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8, and could be a starting option.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:45:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shorts is dealing with a dislocated shoulder, so it does not look like he will be able to play against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Jaelen Strong could see more playing time but is not a great option.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:35:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grimes could miss another game if he does not return to practice at some point in the next two days. Grimes likely would not see much playing time if he is active Thursday, Oct. 8, and should be avoided.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:28:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Washington suffered the injury in the last game and appears to be questionable for the game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Washington has played well early in the season, but owners may want to look for other options because the injury may affect Washington.
