Texans | Tyler Ervin goes to the Texans

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:21:33 -0700

Former San Jose State RB Tyler Ervin was drafted by the Houston Texans with the 119th pick in the fourth round in the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ervin is one of the more dynamic running backs in this year's draft class. He will compete immediately for backup playing time behind Lamar Miller in Houston, and will take away some fantasy value from Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes. He shouldn't be viewed as more than a prospective RB4 or RB5, though.

Texans | Versatility big for Braxton Miller

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:24:48 -0700

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller was called an "explosive" and "versatile" player by general manager Rick Smith, and head coach Bill O'Brien said he was impressed by Miller after meeting with him during the pre-draft process.

Fantasy Tip: Miller may be the most dynamic athlete in this draft class, but his transition from quarterback to receiver is an ongoing process that won’t be made easier with a jump to the NFL. He is an intriguing prospect in dynasty formats, but you can afford to take a wait-and-see approach with him in traditional formats.

Texans | Braxton Miller heading to Houston

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:44:54 -0700

The Houston Texans selected Ohio State WR Braxton Miller with the No. 85 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Miller, a former QB at Ohio State, is a gifted physical specimen with great ball skills as a receiver. However, he's a project at wideout at the next level and must improve his route running in order to contribute for the Texans. He has great playmaking abilities, though, giving Houston another home run threat. Keep Miller on your radar in deeper leagues, but you'll probably want to leave him to the waiver wire to start.

Texans | Will Fuller adds missing element

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:18:22 -0700

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller's speed adds a new element to the offense, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller should have some chances to showcase his big-play speed playing opposite DeAndre Hopkins. He has enough upside to grab as a WR5, but he will likely be an all-or-nothing play from one week to the next.

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:34:42 -0700

Texans | Will Fuller taken by Texans

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:25:33 -0700

The Houston Texans selected Notre Dame WR Will Fuller with the 21st overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28. The Texans traded up with the Washington Redskins for this pick.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller is a speedy big-play threat down the field that could contribute right away opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Fuller does have an issue with drops, which could hurt his production early on, but he will be an impressive talent with a big-armed quarterback throwing him passes in Brock Osweiler. Fuller is worth a late-round flier as a WR5 with upside for more.

Texans | Kenneth Dixon visiting Houston

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:55:25 -0700

Louisiana Tech RB Kenneth Dixon is visiting with the Houston Texans Wednesday, April 20, according to a source. Dixon also had pre-draft visits with the San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue are currently at the top of Houston's running back depth chart, so Dixon would likely be buried behind at least those two in his rookie season, meaning he's unlikely to have much fantasy value outside of dynasty leagues in 2016 if he landed in Houston.
