Buddy Howell rushes for 22 yards in loss on Sunday

Buddy Howell rushed five times for 22 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Colts by a 27-20 score in Week 15 action.

Fantasy Impact

With Duke Johnson out on Sunday, Howell moved into the backup role at running back for the Texans. The undrafted third-year pro does not have a big enough role in the offense to be worth owning in fantasy.

Buddy Howell leads the Texans in rushing in Week 14

Buddy Howell rushed 11 times for 42 yards and caught his only target for an additional three yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Bears by a 36-7 score in Week 14 action.

Fantasy Impact

Howell has mostly played on special teams this season but got an opportunity at running back on Sunday with the team during for offense. David Johnson should be back in Week 15 and Howell will not see enough snaps to be worth grabbing in fantasy.

Buddy Howell not involved in the offense in Week 2 loss

Buddy Howell did not see any carries or passes in Week 2 as the Texans lost to the Ravens by a 33-16 score.

Fantasy Impact

It looked like Howell might see some action in Week 2 with Duke Johnson out with an injury. The team went exclusively with David Johnson on Sunday and Howell was stuck on special teams once again. Unless David Johnson gets hurt, Howell should be left on the waiver wire.

Buddy Howell rushes for a touchdown on Saturday

Buddy Howell rushed 15 times for 84 yards and a touchdown and wasn't targeted in the passing game in the Texans' 30-23 preseason win over the Lions on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Howell spent the entire 2018 season on Houston's active roster but played just three snaps on offense as he was used mostly on special teams. The 23-year-old has the inside track to make the team once again with a strong preseason but will not be fantasy relevant.
