Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Will Fuller V Note

Fuller shined in Week 1 against the Chiefs, pulling in eight catches on 10 targets for 112 yards. He saw a 31% target share, and wasn't even targeted downfield a ton, showing that the ceiling is even higher. It's all about health for Fuller. If he can avoid injury, he's likely to be a stud.

David Johnson Note

Johnson looked quick and decisive in his first game against the Chiefs, scoring a touchdown and gaining over 100 total yards. At least for now, he answered questions about his effectiveness when healthy, and should be a rock solid RB2 until or unless he deals with injury concerns.

Deshaun Watson Note

Watson put up fantasy points in Week 1, as he often does. His offensive line did not play particularly well, but his ability to use his legs often turns that into a positive, as he can avoid pressure and add fantasy points on the ground. Brandin Cooks' quad injury limits one of Watson's main weapons, but so long as Will Fuller stays healthy, Watson should have enough at his disposal to continue to play like a top-five quarterback.

Brandin Cooks Note

Cooks played through his quad injury during the opening game against the Chiefs, but his snaps were limited and he had minimal production. If the Texans were just being cautious with him and he's a full-go for Week 2, then he should be a fine WR3 option. But, until he's fully recovered from his quad injury, he's not someone to target.

Duke Johnson Jr. Note

It's okay if you wanted to hold out hope that Johnson would have fantasy relevance with Bill O'Brien out of town, but clearly, it doesn't matter. We've been through enough coaches to know that he's never going to get more than 5-8 touches per game.

Jordan Akins Note

Akins caught both of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Chiefs. He splits time with Darren Fells and is unlikely to be heavily involved, but in deep leagues with bonus points for tight ends, he could be a bench option that fills in during bye weeks.

Ka'imi Fairbairn Note

Fairbairn's accuracy fell significantly last year, from 88.1% on field-goal attempts and 95% on extra-point attempts in 2018, to 80% and 89%, respectively, last year. To make matters worse, Fairbairn's field-goal attempts dropped from 42 down to 25 last year. It's the perils of drafting any fantasy kicker, but on a decent offense and kicking mostly indoors, Fairbairn is worth drafting in a 12-team league, albeit it as one of the last kickers.

Darren Fells Note

Fells caught both of his targets for 19 yards in the opener, but it was Jordan Akins who found the end zone and had the more productive day. Neither is worth rostering in anything other that deep, tight end-premium leagues.

Houston Texans Note

Kenny Stills Note

Even with Brandin Cooks limited with his quad injury, Stills barely saw work, failing to bring in either of his two targets against the Chiefs. He's not worth rotering in any format.
