Texans Fantasy News

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. This is a new injury for Hopkins. We’ll monitor his progress this week, but it’s not a good sign for his Week 16 prospects if he’s not getting valuable practice reps with the new quarterbacks in Houston.

Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It appears that Johnson will make his return this week in a nice matchup with Baltimore, though the Houston QB situation is dire. Thad Lewis or Case Keenum will get the start. If it’s Keenum, there is some reason for optimism as Johnson averaged 6.9 catches for 100 yards and 0.6 TD in the eight games in which Keenum played last season.

Texans think Andre Johnson plays Week 16

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 10:19am

HoustonTexans.com - [Full Article]

WR Andre Johnson will likely return to the starting lineup for the Texans against Baltimore.

“I think he feels better today,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “Looks like we would have Andre Johnson back for Sunday.”

Fantasy Impact:

On December 7, Johnson suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit in Jacksonville. After failing to clear the league’s concussion protocol, Johnson was inactive in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Colts. Week 16's matchup actually isn't a bad one as the Ravens are 28th in allowing fantasy points to WRs. But the Texans QB situation is very much up in the air right now and will likely limit Johnson's value this week.

T.Y. Hilton's (hamstring) MRI comes back clean

Horseshoeheros.com - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts had a bit of good news today, when it was reported that the team received a clean bill of health regarding wide receiver T.Y. Hilton‘s sore hamstring. The 3rd-year wideout apparently tweaked his hamstring in Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans. He received the results of his MRI today, which came back with positive results.

Fantasy Impact:

While it wasn’t visibly noticeable during the game, Hilton was fairly quiet after catching 3 passes in the 1st quarter. Perhaps, it was a direct result of his hamstring injury, as he finished with just 4 receptions for 50 receiving yards and 0 touchdowns, the story pointed out. He looks promising for a game in Dallas in Week 16, but we first have to see if he can practice this week. The team is hoping he can by Wednesday or Thursday.

Texans bring back QB Case Keenum

Monday, December 15, 2014, 10:22am

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Case Keenum is returning to the Texans.

Keenum, the former record-breaking University of Houston quarterback who was on St. Louis’ practice squad, will be signed and added to the Texans’ active roster for the last two games against Baltimore and Jacksonville at NRG Stadium.

Fantasy Impact:

Because Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) and Tom Savage (knee) were injured in Sunday’s 17-10 loss at Indianapolis, the Texans are in the market for at least one quarterback and possibly two to join recently signed free-agent Thad Lewis. Fitzpatrick’s season is over with the broken leg. If Savage suffered extensive damage to his knee, as many suspect, Lewis and Keenum should be active against the Ravens. Savage is going to have an MRI Monday to determine the extent to his injury. Neither really presents a great fantasy outlook.

T.Y. Hilton tweaks hamstring

Monday, December 15, 2014, 8:59am

Yahoo Sports - [Full Article]

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton tweaked his hamstring against the Texans on Sunday, but didn’t seem to miss much time if any.

His production on the other hand did take a marked plunge after a strong start to the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton didn't shed anymore info on the injury other than he was quoted as saying he's scheduled for an MRI. It's perhaps at least a little good news at this point in the week that he remained in the game but could be a reason for a drop in fantasy production.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) lost for season

Sunday, December 14, 2014, 7:56pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was injured on a scramble and was carted off the field with a boot on his left leg in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Colts. His leg is broken, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, per a team source. His season is over.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie Tom Savage entered the game and completed his first NFL pass to DeAndre Hopkins after avoiding the pressure. But on the second-to-last play of the game, Savage took a hit to his lower leg. Rapoport later add, per a team source, that the QB will have an MRI on Monday. The fourth-round pick would take over a Texans offense that has already lost Ryan Mallett this season. Thaddeus Lewis is the next QB up on the depth chart

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Foster appears to be all systems go for a good matchup against the Colts. He has averaged 123 rushing yards and 1.0 TD in his last three games against Indianapolis.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (not injury related, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 15. Hilton will be fine for a great matchup against Houston. In his last five games against the Texans, Hilton has averaged 6.2-122-1.2. That’s 25.6 fantasy points in PPR formats.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. We should have final word by Saturday. Right now, Johnson looks very iffy to face Indianapolis, but he’s a veteran who could play without practicing at all during the week.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Texans TE Garrett Graham (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15.

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 6:32pm

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Another report said that Foster returned to practice, but the official report said that he was out. Regardless, we’re expecting him to play after finishing Week 14 with no apparent problems.

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 6:32pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (not injury related) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Hilton should be fine for a great matchup against Houston. In his last five games against the Texans, Hilton has averaged 6.2-122-1.2. That’s 25.6 fantasy points in PPR formats.

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 6:32pm

Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Houston hasn’t ruled him out, but he’s going to have to advance through the league’s concussion protocol quickly if he’s going to play against Indianapolis.
