Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. This is mildly concerning. We’ll see what he’s able to do on Friday before adjusting our rankings. If he were to miss, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee would pick up the slack.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Fuller’s injuries have been ongoing, but he’s been active on Sundays. He should be out there in a tough matchup against the Jaguars.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. At first glance, Coutee doesn’t have a very good matchup against the Jaguars, but his individual matchup in the slot against CB Tyler Patmon is by far the best of any of the Houston receivers this week. Prior to a 3-33 clunker against the Bills in Week 6, Coutee caught a combined 17 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 and Week 5.

Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen left Sunday’s loss to the Texans with a right elbow injury and coach Sean McDermott provided an update on Allen’s condition when he met with the media on Monday.

McDermott described Allen’s outlook as “week to week.”

Fantasy Impact:

HC Sean McDermott said "we'll see" and he'll know more Tuesday as far as whether or not Allen can play in Week 7. Peterman may not be a lock to start if Allen can't go, as the team signed the veteran Anderson last week.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman unlikely back for Week 7

Monday, October 15, 2018, 1:23pm

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans running back Donta Foreman isn't expected to be activated from the physically unable to perform list this week, according to coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Impact:

This is the first week that he was eligible to return to practice. Once activated, the Texans would have three weeks to decide whether to place him on the active roster or IR reserve list, so all of that is being considered said O'Brien.

Lions Beat: Kenny Golladay emerging at top WR

Monday, October 15, 2018, 10:35am

MLive.com - [Full Article]

Last year, Marvin Jones averaged the 11th most receiving yards per game. This year, Golden Tate is 10th.

Yet it's possible Kenny Golladay has been better than both of them in 2018.

Metrics say Golladay is the ninth best receiver in the NFL, trailing only DeSean Jackson, Adam Thielen, DeAndre Hopkins, Tyreek Hill, Michael Thomas, Mike Evans, A.J. Green and Odell Beckham.

And Golladay's emergence, with two really good players ahead of him, was one of the brightest developments of the first five weeks of season.

Fantasy Impact:

Golladay now has 27 catches, just one off his total from all last season. He has 428 yards, which is just 3 off Tate's team lead. And he's been the No. 1 threat downfield. He now has 55 catches for 905 yards and six touchdowns in 16 career games, which is better than both Calvin Johnson and Herman Moore. And he's done so while playing with better receivers than either of them, the story went on to say.
