Texans | Full practice for Tom Savage

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:01:14 -0800

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Savage hasn't been eye-gougingly terrible since taking over for Deshaun Watson, but he's been close to that. He limits the ceiling of DeAndre Hopkins and the rest of the offense, but guys like Hopkins and Lamar Miller are still automatic starts. Savage, on the other hand, cannot be trusted as a starter no matter who he's playing.

Texans | Bruce Ellington logs full practice

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 13:56:46 -0800

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (ribs) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington will take over for Will Fuller this week, and possibly beyond, as the Texans' No. 2 wide receiver. After seeing a season-high nine targets last week, he is a sleeper candidate in a quality matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Texans | Bruce Ellington may get more targets

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 17:36:35 -0800

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington "needs to get the ball more," according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who added that "he's doing some really good things out there."

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has become more involved in the passing game since Deshaun Watson went down, as he's drawn eight targets in each of the last two games, turning that into seven catches for 63 yards and his second touchdown of the season. While those numbers don't exactly sound glamorous, it is encouraging that his head coach wants him more involved, which makes him a sleeper option to ponder in deeper formats.

Texans | Bruce Ellington takes part in practice

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:17:33 -0800

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is expected to receive a bigger role in the passing game with Will Fuller unlikely to play. He has been targeted 17 times over the last two weeks but has only seven catches and 63 yards during that span. Desperate owners in deeper leagues could consider Ellington, but owners in most leagues can find better options for their lineups.

Texans | Tom Savage practices Wednesday

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:11:07 -0800

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has thrown for 440 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks and will continue to be the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense and should be avoided in all leagues.

Texans | Will Fuller likely out Week 11

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:09:42 -0800

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and is not expected to play in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller is reportedly dealing with cracked ribs after getting blasted by Los Angeles Rams safety Lemarcus Joyner last week. Bruce Ellington attracted eight targets - catching half of them - and scored a touchdown in the same game and has shown a fair amount of chemistry with Tom Savage dating back to the preseason. Expect Ellington to be a surprise DFS staple this week as DeAndre Hopkins will likely receive shadow treatment from Patrick Peterson.

Texans | Tom Savage will start again

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:42:08 -0800

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will start in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has no business in your fantasy lineups outside of a fringe play in two-QB leagues.

Texans | Will Fuller to miss time

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 06:45:05 -0800

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is expected to miss at least one game with cracked ribs suffered in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller has a 17-326-7 line - and that's not a typo. He has value because of his knack for finding the end zone as a WR5.

Texans | Bruce Ellington finds the end zone

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:39:47 -0800

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington caught four passes on eight targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington took advantage of an injury to Will Fuller to log some extra snaps, but even if Fuller misses more time, Ellington isn't likely to make a consistent impact.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins tops 100 yards

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:33:51 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes on 14 targets for 111 yards in a 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Tom Savage has targeted Hopkins a whopping 30 times in the last two games, and that type of volume should keep Hopkins in the WR2 range going forward.

Texans | Lamar Miller runs for 60 yards

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:15:26 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 11 times for 60 yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in a 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ran well, but Houston fell behind quickly in the second half and had to abandon the running game. Unfortunately for Miller owners, this could be a theme going forward now that Tom Savage is back under center.
