Texans | J.J. Watt will be placed on IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:47:29 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will be placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Sept. 28, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Although he would be eligible to return Nov. 27, sources indicate Watt is "probably" done for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Watt was likely the No. 1 DT taken in most IDP leagues, so his loss will be felt. Look for Jadeveon Clowney to see an increased role moving forward.

Texans | J.J. Watt expected to go on IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 18:28:46 -0700

Updating a previous post, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will likely be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Sept. 28. There was no word on whether the IR will be season-ending, although Watt could miss the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: As a previous post said, Watt is an elite IDP and this will greatly hurt the Texans defense. Jadeveon Clowney may be a very popular waiver-wire pickup this week.

Texans | J.J. Watt could be out for season

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:53:00 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) has re-injured his back and is expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, perhaps for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Watt is an elite NFL player and an elite IDP option in fantasy leagues. The Texans will miss his presence, but perhaps it will open the door more for Jadeveon Clowney to get his career going. Clowney is worth a pickup in IDP leagues if he's available.

Texans | Rough night for Jaelen Strong

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 19:02:57 -0700

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong caught one of his four targets for 15 yards in a 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 3, dropping a pass and committing a personal foul penalty.

Fantasy Tip: Strong had a chance to make some noise with Braxton Miller sidelined, but he did little to make a case for more targets. He can be left on the waiver wire at this point.

Texans | Brock Osweiler takes blame for loss

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:14:32 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he takes the blame for the performance of the offense against the New England Patriots in Week 3, and he said he will become a better quarterback because of the experience.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has three touchdowns and four picks through three games, and he looks like a low-end QB2 at this point.

Texans | Braxton Miller to return soon

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 19:33:03 -0700

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much time with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has two catches for nine yards this year, and the hamstring injury isn't helping his development. He should be owned in all dynasty formats, but don't be surprised if he doesn't contribute much in 2016.

Texans | J.J. Watt contained again

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:50:14 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt was held to two tackles and no sacks Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: He had 1.5 sacks last week, but he had two clunkers in Week 1 and last night. He should only get stronger as the season progresses and remains an elite DL option in IDP leagues.

Texans | Ryan Griffin busy in loss

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:36:15 -0700

Houston Texans TE Ryan Griffin had eight catches on 10 targets 52 yards in a 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin saw just four targets in the first two games, so don't overreact to his Week 3 performance. He remains a speculative TE2 for now.

Texans | Lamar Miller being check out

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:00:22 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was having his knee looked at by trainers against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22, but he was able to return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever Miller did to his knee, it doesn't look like it was serious. His status as Houston's every-down back should have him starting every week.
