Texans | Bruce Ellington goes full in practice

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:05:19 -0800

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 17, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 11 game with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is expected to see additional work in the pass game with Will Fuller (ribs) inactive. That makes Ellington worth a look as a WR4 or WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if you're in a pinch due to injuries or bye weeks. He is also a decent low-priced DFS target against the 23rd-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

Texans | Will Fuller out for Week 11

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:04:42 -0800

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) did not practice Friday, Nov. 17, and he is officially ruled out for Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: With Fuller on the shelf it will be Bruce Ellington starting alongside DeAndre Hopkins against the Cards. Ellington is worth a look as a WR4 or WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues and as a low-priced DFS target against the 23rd-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

Texans | Tom Savage off injury report

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:04:14 -0800

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 17, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Savage will be facing a surprisingly porous Cardinals pass defense, ranking 23rd in the NFL with 245.1 yards per game and 16 touchdowns. However, they have a pretty strong pass rush, sacking the QB 22 times through nine games, and Savage is without Will Fuller (ribs). Despite the favorable matchup his fantasy ceiling remains rather limited.

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.
