Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Howard practiced on Wednesday and is a true questionable play for this week. However, he is not a great play even if he is ruled active, with the Giants playing pretty well against the run and being horrible against the pass. With Howard, you would simply hope for touchdowns, with there not being much upside with yards. That is not a situation you want to bank on your your fantasy playoffs, if you don't have to.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The heavy workload for Lindsay continued last week, as he out-touched Freeman 20-9, though it is worth noting that Freeman out-snapped him 31-25. Neither of them was particularly efficient in that game, but it's good to see Lock target his running backs more than Brandon Allen did. We saw 7-of-28 pass attempts go to the running backs, which is a phenomenal 25 percent target share. The Texans have allowed at least 139 yards on the ground to running backs in each of the last three games they played, but the question is: Can the Broncos run the ball enough to take advantage of the Texans weakness? On the year, opponents have only averaged 20.3 rushing attempts per game against them, which is one of the lower marks in the league, and doesn't bode well for timeshares, though as we've seen the last few weeks, this may not be that. The area the Texans have been destroyed most by running backs is through the air, as they've allowed a league-high 202.1 PPR points through the air. That amounts to 16.8 PPR points per game through the air alone. We don't have a big enough sample size from Lock to say with any certainty he'll continue to target the running backs, but from what we did see, it's a plus for Lindsay. Knowing he's received 14-20 opportunities in each of the last three games, Lindsay should be played as a solid RB2 against the team allowing the fourth-most points per opportunity to running backs. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Lindsay has basically been what we expected this season: 15 or so carries, a couple receptions, and maybe a touchdown here or there. He's a low-end RB2/high-end RB3, and expect more of the same against the Texans in Week 14. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Houston is 26th against fantasy running backs, but the Texans should be able to load up the box against a Broncos team that is unable to pass the ball. Lindsay is a low-upside RB2.
