TEXANS INACTIVES
WR Keke Coutee
WR Vyncent Smith
RB D'onta Foreman
CB Deante Burton
T Roderick Johnson
DE Carlos Watkins
DE Joel Heath

Fantasy Impact:

No earth-shattering inactives from this game. Make note that Jets RB Trenton Cannon is active and will back up Elijah McGuire. Coutee out cements Demaryius Thomas as Houston's WR2 for another week. Enunwa being out keeps Robby Anderson as the primary receiver for New York.

Jets TE Christopher Herndon (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Herndon should be good to go to face the Texans, who have had trouble covering the tight end position this season.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday. No worries here.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Coutee was limited all of last week and ultimately sat out. The Texans play on Saturday. His absence would give Demaryius Thomas a small boost.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Texans WR DeAndre Carter (concussion) took full practice reps again Thursday.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. Anderson should be fine to face the Texans. With Quincy Enunwa (ankle, out) ruled out, seven targets in back-to-back games, and a nice matchup on tap, Anderson is shaping up as a Sneaky Start for Week 15. Jermaine Kearse is also worth a look.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Texans RB Donta Foreman (not injury related) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe, out) missed practice again Thursday. Elijah McGuire (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. With Crowell out, it’s looking likely that McGuire serves as the RB1 against the Texans. It’s a bad matchup, but McGuire should see a sizable workload after turning 20 touches into 83 yards and a touchdown against the Bills last week. Houston has yielded just 40 rushing yards per game (on 2.65 YPC) to opposing running backs in the last four games, though they’ve given up an average 42 receiving yards to the position in the same span. McGuire is more than capable as a receiver—he has 11 catches for 90 yards in five games played, so he holds more value in PPR formats than in standard this week. Trenton Cannon (toe, questionable) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Watson should continue to play through the shoulder injury.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6:59pm

Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) took full practice reps again Thursday. He’s expected to start against the Texans on Saturday.

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell and WR Quincy Enunwa ruled OUT for Week 15

Jets Official Injury Report

The Jets have listed Isaiah Crowell (foot) and Quincy Enunwa (ankle) as out for Week 15's game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact:

Crowell's backfield mate Elijah McGuire isn't a sure thing for Saturday's game, but it does sound like he should play. If so, he checks in as a low-end RB2/flex option against a tough Texans run defense. Coming off his best game since Week 5, Robby Anderson is an intriguing WR4 with upside should he get loose for a long score (or two).

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (toe) did not practice Wednesday. Elijah McGuire (ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Crowell looks doubtful, but we’ll continue to monitor his status. It’s looking likely that McGuire serves as the RB1 against the Texans. It’s a bad matchup, but McGuire should see a sizable workload after turning 20 touches into 83 yards and a touchdown against the Bills last week. Houston has yielded just 40 rushing yards per game (on 2.65 YPC) to opposing running backs in the last four games, though they’ve given up an average 42 receiving yards to the position in the same span. McGuire is more than capable as a receiver—he has 11 catches for 90 yards in five games played.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:48pm

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (right shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday. Watson should continue to play through the shoulder injury.
