Tyrod Taylor is slated to return to practice on Wednesday as he recovers from a hamstring injury. If he avoids setbacks, he is expected to return and start on Sunday against the Rams. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)
Taylor had been on IR with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, but looks ready to return here in Week 8. Outside of deep two-quarterback or superflex formats, fantasy managers aren't relying on him, but his return does boost the stock of Brandin Cooks, who has been floundering with Davis Mills at the helm. In a tough matchup with Taylor needing to shake off the rust, however, it's probably best to avoid most Texans in fantasy if you can for this week.
