Texans RB Alfred Blue (back) practiced fully Wednesday. Blue carried the ball 20 times for 107 yards last week, so it appears that he’s back atop the Texans’ depth chart.

Report: T.J. Yates (ACL) lost for year

The Houston Texans fear quarterback T.J. Yates suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Yates suffered the season-ending injury on a scramble on the final drive of the first half. Yates walked directly to the locker room under his own power after the injury, which came on a non-contact play.

Fantasy Impact:

Brandon Weeden replaced Yates to close out the half. The team signed Weeden after the Cowboys released him and he would be next in line to start.

Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs, probable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15. Hasselbeck will start against the Texans, though he’s severely banged up.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. It’s going to be T.J. Yates this week. This isn’t necessarily bad for DeAndre Hopkins, though it is a bit of a concern.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (back, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Blue did not play an offensive snap in Week 14 despite being active and healthy enough to contribute on special teams. It’s not clear if there has been a change on the depth chart, but Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes have been splitting the running back duties. For what it’s worth, the team’s unofficial depth chart still shows Blue as the RB1 and HC Bill O’Brien said that Blue would be more involved this week.

Texans RB Chris Polk (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Polk could lead the Houston backfield in touches once again, but HC Bill O’Brien said that Alfred Blue would be more involved this week.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Griffin is not a bad dart throw for TE streamers this week. He had a touchdown in back-to-back games before a 1-20 outing (on five targets) against the Patriots last week. The Colts are #27 in TE aFPA.

Buccaneers Inactives

QB Ryan Griffin
LB Bruce Carter
T Demar Dotson
TE Brandon Myers
WR Vincent Jackson
DE George Johnson
DT Akeem Spence

Fantasy Impact:

With Jackson out, Mike Evans should see a ton of targets against the Rams. In the three games that V-Jax missed this year, Evans averaged 13.7 targets (for 6.3 catches and 110 yards). Evans averaged 8.6 targets in eight games with Jackson in the lineup. The Rams did contain Calvin Johnson last week, so a big game for Evans isn't a sure thing. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is also more appealing as a streaming option.

Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Hasselbeck is expected to start against the Texans, though he’s severely banged up, so it’s no sure thing.

Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:06pm

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Hoyer won’t play. It’s going to be T.J. Yates this week. This isn’t necessarily bad for DeAndre Hopkins, though it is a bit of a concern.
