Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he is not looking for a "certain range" for his next contract but wants to be paid what he is worth. General manager Rick Smith said he is hopeful Hopkins will be around for a long time.
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has developed into one of the top receivers in the game, and he is a WR1 in any format.

Fantasy Tip: Will Fuller and Braxton Miller are waiting in the wings, and Shorts' role could diminish over the course of the year. In the meantime, Shorts could be worth a flier as a shot-in-the-dark DFS play.

Fantasy Tip: This seemingly has come out of nowhere, and it could cause Houston's defense to drop in the rankings if their star player shows any ill effects in the year ahead. If this becomes an issue that keeps Watt from playing to his full capacity, it would easily have significant ramifications on the defensive unit.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller has speed, and he doesn't have a big, uphill climb into playing time. He's a WR5 flyer with upside.

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller said Tuesday, July 12, in a satellite radio interview that he is open to playing anywhere the team asks. "Playmaker. I'll play slot, I'll play outside, receiver, running back. Whatever's in the game play," Miller said.
Fantasy Tip: Miller started three years at quarterback for Ohio State, and has just one year of wide receiver experience under his belt. He is an intriguing late-round flier for fantasy owners just in case he exceeds expectations, but it might take a while before he even gets to the level of former utility man Brad Smith, who wasn't a great fantasy option.

Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing led the team with 110 tackles last year, and linebackers coach Mike Vrabel said Cushing's attitude, energy and physicality is back to where it was before knee surgery four years ago.

Houston Texans LB Benardrick McKinney will be used more as a pass rusher in 2016 and will also be used in pass coverage because he is learning about how to shadow receivers. Head coach Bill O'Brien said McKinney was one of the most improved defensive players this offseason.

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller may be used in a variety of ways during the 2016 NFL season. He should line up at different spots in the offense and could also be used as a kick returner. Miller could also line up in the Wildcat formation since he was a quarterback in college.
Fantasy Tip: Miller should have a solid role on offense this season but may need some time to adjust to being a receiver in the NFL. He should be an attractive option in keeper leagues and may be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
