Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: There are better options, for sure, but Novak isn't the worst starting kicker for fantasy purposes. He made 18 of his 21 field goal attempts last season and 29 of 31 extra point attempts.

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has been the starting slot receiver in the first two preseason games, and offensive coordinator Bob Godsey said he has been impressed with Miller's commitment to developing relationships with his quarterbacks and coaches.
Fantasy Tip: Miller's transition to receiver appears to be going well, and he should only improve as the season goes on. He is a more appealing option in dynasty formats, but Miller is still worth a late-round gamble as a WR5 in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Novak hasn't even technically won the starting kicker position yet, but he's probably still the favorite. Kickers are a dime a dozen, but Novak would be in low-end PK1 range if he does start.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller looked awfully sharp, but remember he was also facing one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Fuller will start out in the WR5 range for fantasy owners, worthy of a late-round flyer on draft day. However, he could very well move into the WR3 range by season's end if he stays healthy and Brock Osweiler can take a big step forward.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler looked a lot more comfortable in this game than his debut. He is going to be just fine as long as DeAndre Hopkins stays healthy, Will Fuller continues to progress and either Jaelen Strong or Braxton Miller can emerge as another viable target. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most standard fantasy formats with some room to move up.

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (quadriceps) missed the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New Orleans Saints, as expected. He remains hopeful to be ready for the regular season opener, as he progresses from a torn quadriceps muscle.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player is known to be dealing with an injury, so the Saints' decision to sit both starters is likely just a way to give rookie Michael Thomas and others behind him on the depth chart plenty of snaps to show their wares. Look for Cooks and Snead to play most of the first half when New Orleans hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers next Friday.

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) has head coach Bill O'Brien encouraged by Watt's progress from back surgery. However, O'Brien is still unsure about Watt's availability for the first two games of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Watt is the cream of the crop as far as defensive linemen go in fantasy, and it's not even close. If he continues to progress and avoids setback, he's still firmly atop the D-line perch in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Savage was competing with Brandon Weeden for the job and has apparently emerged as the victor in this position battle. This probably won't have much of a fantasy impact, if any, though it's worth noting that current starter Brock Osweiler dealt with injury last season.
