Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

David Johnson Note

Johnson has been placed on IR after suffering a concussion in Week 9. He'll miss a minimum of three games. It's unusual for a player to be ruled out for three games so quickly after a concussion, but given where the Texans are in the standings, they're likely just being overly cautious. Stash Johnson if you can, but he won't be able to help you until at least close to the fantasy playoffs.

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.

Deshaun Watson Note

If you're looking ahead to the playoffs, you shouldn't rely on top-six production out of Watson. In Weeks 14 and 15 he'll play the Bears and the Colts, two of the worst matchups for quarterbacks. When you add in the loss of Will Fuller, it seems to be too much for Watson.

Phillip Lindsay Note

With Melvin Gordon potentially facing a suspension after being charged with a DUI, Lindsay looks likely to inherit a large workload, similar to what he saw last year. Now past his bye with Drew Lock back, Lindsay could find himself in RB2 territory until Gordon returns, if he does this year.

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.

Houston Texans Note

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.

Anthony Miller Note

Miller had a big first game but was entirely shut out in Week 2 against the Giants. But the real takeaway from his first two games is that he's played on just 40% of the snaps or so, making him as unreliable as can be for fantasy purposes. Unless and until Miller plays more, feel free to move on.

Mark Ingram II Note

Ingram has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list after testing positive for COVID-19 and will miss at least Week 12's game against the Steelers. He had little-to-no fantasy value regardless, so there's no reason to hold him in redraft formats.
