TE - FA
Week 17 Outlook
Houston Texans beat writer John McClain is reporting TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) "may retire" this offseason.
Fiedorowicz, who suffered four concussions since December 2016 -- his latest occurring in Week 13 of the 2017 season -- is considering retiring from the league this offseason as a result of his recurring head injuries. However, although his career is hanging up in the air, the 26-year-old tight end told the press that he plans on reporting for offseason activities and taking part in OTAs. In five games last season, Fiedorowicz only accumulated a 14-127-00 stat line.
C.J. Fiedorowicz caught two passes for 16 yards against the Tennessee Titans.
C.J. Fiedorowicz is still not looking like he was the season before where he was a top tight end option. In an offense that is not as effective with Tom Savage. His value is a spot start.
C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 4 passes for 37 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12
The value of Fiedorowicz is capped currently with Tom Savage leading the offense who clearly locks in on Hopkins downfield on passing plays. Combined with the ability of the Quarterback to move the team downfield unfortunately fantasy owners can’t rely on solid production from him.
C.J. Fiedorowicz caught both of his targets for 18 yards on Sunday against the Cardinals.
Tom Savage really spread the ball around, completing passes to seven different receivers, which prevented Fiedorowicz from being heavily involved. At this point, Fiedorowicz shouldn't be considered a fantasy option until or unless he starts producing more significantly.
C.J. Fiedorowicz caught two of six passes for 10 yards in the Texans' loss to the Rams on Sunday. It was his first game since Week 1.
Fiedorowicz was heavily involved but that doesn't usually mean much when Tom Savage is the quarterback. He still falls outside of the streaming conversation, including next week against the Cardinals, but he can at least be considered a potential option in a league with significant bonus points to tight ends.
