Luck is listed as questionable, so owners should pay attention as inactives are announced leading up to game time on Thursday. Gore and Allen are both probable, so they're virtually certain to play. Allen's return puts a big dent in Coby Fleener's upside. For the Texans, Foster is probable, so he should see an increased workload. With both Shorts and Washington out, the Texans are short at receiver. Look for DeAndre Hopkins to dominate targets again.

Week 5 vs. Indianapolis
Even though the Texans were down for the entire game against the Falcons last week, Chris Polk received some garbage time touches and finished with 50 yards and his first TD of the season. Now Arian Foster is healthy, look for Polk to drop to the third RB option for Houston. He should be kept on the bench on Thursday night.
