Houston Texans

AFC South

Fantasy Impact: Will Fuller was able to log limited sessions for all of last week before being declared inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Ravens. It is expected that the Texans held Fuller out in a tough matchup against the Ravens to ensure he was ready for Thursday Night Football against their division rivals Indianapolis Colts in a battle for first place in the AFC South. Fuller should be active on Thursday and will be a massive upside WR3 play.

Fantasy Impact: Watson suffered the ankle injury on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. The team was confident enough to list him as a full participant on the estimated report which suggests that while they expect him to play on the short week, that this is an injury they will be monitoring up until Thursday. Watson remains a no-brainer QB1 despite the horrible showing against the Ravens suddenly ferocious secondary.

Houston Texans D/ST finished with one sack in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Houston's defense gave up a season-worst 41 points in the loss, failing to force any turnovers. This defensive unit has been mostly bad all season, and a TNF matchup with Indy won't make things much easier.

Category: Game Recaps

Ka’imi Fairbairn missed his only field-goal attempt and connected on his only extra-point attempt in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fairbairn had an uncharacteristic miss in Sunday's blowout, though the three points wouldn't have made a difference in the outcome of the game. He's normally a reliable kicker option, and Houston's offense should bounce back moving forward, helping the Fairbairn to rebound.

Darren Fells caught one of three targets for 18 yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fells finished with a dud, thanks to a poor showing from DeShaun Watson in the blowout loss. Fells is highly touchdown-dependent and isn't worth a look outside of very deep leagues.

Zach Cunningham logged seven solo tackles and four assisted tackles, but the Texans fell to the Ravens, 41-7.

Fantasy Impact: Cunningham's nose for the ball and tackling ability gives him a high floor week in and week out. Though he's a safe play, he'll never give you a standout week that will propel your team to victory. He remains a solid play against the Colts on TNF next week.

Category: Game Recaps

Whitney Mercilus posted just two solo tackles in a 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: The whole Texans got eviscerated by MVP-candidate Lamar Jackson, and Mercilus had one of his worst games of the season. In his last two weeks combined, he's totaled just five tackles. He'll try to pick up the slack on TNF in a battle for the AFC South against the Colts.

Category: Game Recaps

Keke Coutee hauled in all three of his targets for 25 yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Coutee hasn't been a big part of the offensive plan this season, and that continued in Sunday's loss. Will Fuller should make his return in Week 12, pushing Coutee even farther out of fantasy relevancy.

Category: Game Recaps

Kenny Stills corralled four of seven targets for 27 yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Stills was a great get for Houston, though his play is largely dependent on big plays. Finding none of those against Baltimore on Sunday, Stills was rendered largely irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Will Fuller could make his return on TNF against the Colts in Week 12, making Stills an even riskier play moving forward.

DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of 12 targets for 80 yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Nuk was held in check by Baltimore's solid defense, going for 80 yards on a team-high 12 targets. Through 12 weeks, Hop's 75/745/4 receiving line has left a lot to be desired by fantasy owners who spent a first-round pick on him. He's performed well against Indy in his career, and he'll face the Colts on TNF in Week 12.

Duke Johnson carried six times for 40 yards, adding two receptions for four yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Duke didn't do too much Sunday, despite the Texans playing catchup all afternoon. Despite the emergence of Carlos Hyde, Johnson has still scored three times in his last four games, and makes a solid flex option in PPR formats. More positive gamescript will boost his fantasy value from here on out.

Category: Game Recaps

Carlos Hyde carried nine times for 65 yards and a TD in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde's big play came on a 41-yard score in garbage time, with Houston already down 34-0. His other eight carries went for just 24 yards. The Texans struggled Sunday, but Hyde still made the most of his opportunities. He's having a resurgence with his new team, as he's accounted for 769 rushing yards through 12 weeks.

Recently-acquired cornerback Vernon Hargreaves is inactive for Houston's Week 11 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: With Hargreaves only being claimed off waivers this week, he likely needs a little more time to get acclimated with the team's defensive systems.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Texans LT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) is expected to play Week 11. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tunsil is trending in the right direction for Sunday's tough matchup with the Ravens. His presence will bolster a Houston offensive line that is improved this season with him but can certainly still be exploited when Tunsil is out, especially in a matchup with an elite Baltimore secondary who can not only shut down most challenging wideouts in man-coverage, but in that scenario, would open up the front-seven to pin their ears back and attack Deshaun Watson while the back-end is protected. Tunsil playing is imperative for the Texans to win in Week 11.

DeAndre Carter caught his only target for eight yards on Sunday as the Texans beat the Jaguars in London by a 26-3 score.

Fantasy Impact: It looked like Carter would become a bigger part of the offense with fellow receiver Will Fuller out with an injury. But the 26-year-old wide receiver has seen only four targets total over the last two games and is not worth owning in fantasy.

Category: Game Recaps

Jordan Akins caught all three of his targets for 24 yards on Sunday as the Texans beat the Jaguars in London by a 26-3 score.

Fantasy Impact: Akins now has 20 catches on 28 targets for 248 passing yards on the season. The second year tight end is not seeing enough action in the passing game to be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Brennan Scarlett recorded two solo tackles, one TFL, two sacks, two QB hits, and a forced fumble as the Texans defeated the Jaguars 26-3.

Fantasy Impact: Scarlett's game kind of appeared out of the blue, as he hit season-bests in TFLs, sacks, and QB hits. While it's unclear if his big day came about solely because of JJ Watt's absence, he might be an intriguing add if he can sustain a semblance of this production.

J.J. Watt's injury Sunday against the Raiders is believed to be a torn pectoral. He confirmed via his personal Twitter account Sunday that his season is over, suggesting that fears of a torn pectoral are true. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a massive blow to the Texans defense. The team will be without their star defensive lineman for the remainder of the season. A rotation of Charles Omenihu and Carlos Watkins figures to fill into Watt's place. Watt will look to rehab and set his sights on returning in 2020.

Tashaun Gipson got in on the scoring frenzy against the Falcon, taking a 79 yard INT to the house in a 53-32 win. He also chipped in three total tackles, a pass defended, and a QB hit.

Fantasy Impact: Gipson's TD came in the waning moments of the game and put the icing on the cake for a Texans team that had struggled to put points on the board two of the last three weeks. However, the unit as a whole needs to be much better next week as they go into Arrowhead against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Category: Game Recaps

Bradley Roby had a tough time covering Michael Thomas, but it ultimately led to him tying the team lead in total tackles (nine) and leading in solo tackles (eight).

Fantasy Impact: Roby's productive outing likely occurred on your waiver wire, and unless he keeps producing near double-digit tackle stat lines, you can leave him there.
