Houston Texans

AFC South

Pro Bowl WR Stefon Diggs has reworked his contract with the Houston Texans, clearing out his final three years (2025-2027) to essentially create a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Texans are converting his future injury-guaranteed money into guaranteed money in 2024, giving him a one-year pay raise and setting him up for free agency in 2025. Diggs, who appeared to lose a step — for one reason or another — in 2023 has an incentive to perform in 2024 for a new payday. However, the Texans are not eligible for compensatory-pick compensation for Diggs if he leaves due to the nature of his restructured deal.

Fantasy Impact: Fairbairn becomes the fourth-highest paid kicker in the NFL. He has been one of the most reliable kickers in the game the past few years and with C.J. Stroud continuing to lead the offense for Houston, Fairbairn should continue to have plenty of opportunities next season.

The Houston Texans and TE Dalton Schultz have reached terms on a three-year, $36 million deal ($23.5 million guaranteed) to keep the veteran TE paired with QB C.J. Stroud. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Stroud's emergence, the name of the game for Houston is to build around him, and that includes giving him weapons to work with. Schultz was productive during his years with Dallas, and after he didn't have the strongest market in 2023, his one-year deal with Houston proved to be worth it, turning into a $12 million-per-year contract. He finished 2023 as the half-PPR TE11.

Will Anderson Jr. has taken home the 2023 Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Adam Schefter noted that this is the second year in a row that teammates have taken the rookie awards, Anderson and C.J. Stroud in 2023, Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson in 2022. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson showed huge potential in his rookie year, with 7 sacks, 22 QB hits, and 45 combined tackles to his name in 2023. The young star will look to only improve upon those numbers in year two and appears to be a great asset for those in IDP leagues.

C.J. Stroud has won the 2023 Offensive Rookie of the Year. This is the second year in a row that a Buckeye has won the award after his former teammate, Garrett Wilson, won the award last season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Even with several strong candidates to compete with, such as the Rams Puca Nacua, Stroud came home with the prestigious award. He was 8th in the NFL in total passing yards and led the NFL in passing yards per game. His 1.0% interception rate was also the best in the NFL and he led the Texans to a playoff win in what was believed to be a rebuilding year. He has a bright future ahead of him and the Texans have found their franchise quarterback.
