Houston Texans

AFC South

According to a source, the Green Bay Packers have expressed interest in trading for Texans WR Will Fuller V. (Source: Aaron Reiss on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: No deal is imminent, but it’s no surprise the Packers are calling around looking for a wide receiver to pair with Davante Adams. The Texans are reportedly willing to make a trade, but only if they’re receiving enough value in return, whether it be picks or a player. They won’t “trade just to trade” according to Aaron Reiss. Stay tuned to see if the Packers make a move for Fuller or another wide receiver ahead of the November 3 trade deadline.

Fantasy Impact: Prosise received just one touch with Houston so far this year. A reunion with the Seahawks could be in the work with Chris Carson (foot) expected to miss some time.

The Texans defense gave up five touchdowns as the team lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: The Texans defense came up with three tackles for losses and one QB hit on Sunday. The D/ST has a bye in Week 8 and faces the Jaguars in Week 9 but is not worth owning in fantasy.

Ka'imi Fairbairn went 2-for-3 in field goal attempts and made both his extra-point tries on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Fairbairn is now 12-for-14 in field goal attempts and is 16-for-17 in extra-point tries on the season. The veteran kicker has been accurate this season but does not see enough opportunities to be anything but a deeper league kicker.

Kenny Stills caught two of four targets for 34 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Stills has become the forgotten man in the Texans passing game as he has seen just five targets over the last three games. The veteran receiver is not seeing enough action to be worth owning in fantasy leagues.

Duke Johnson Jr. rushed one time for a negative yard and caught all five of his targets for 43 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: With the Texans falling behind early they passed often and utilized Johnson out of the backfield as he had a season-high in catches. The veteran running back does not see enough action to be worth owning in fantasy other than as a handcuff to David Johnson.

Darren Fells did not see a target on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Fells was at the top of the depth chart at tight end on Sunday with Jordan Akins out once again with a concussion. Fells started in Week 6 as well and had six receptions including a touchdown but was not utilized on Sunday. Look for Jordan Akins to be back after the bye in Week 9 and Fells can be dropped in most fantasy leagues.

Randall Cobb caught eight of 10 targets for 95 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb saw his most targets as a Texan this season against his former team. The veteran wide receiver now has 30 receptions on 38 targets for 372 yards and two touchdowns and is worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.

Brandin Cooks caught seven of nine targets for 60 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks has become a big part of the Texans passing game and has 24 catches on 30 targets over his last three games. The veteran wide receiver should be owned in most fantasy leagues and has a bye in Week 8 but a good matchup against the Jaguars in Week 9.

David Johnson rushed 14 times for 42 yards while catching four passes for an additional 42 yards and a touchdown on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson struggled on the ground as he finished with a 3.0 rushing average on Sunday. But he helped out fantasy owners with the touchdown catch. Johnson is on a bye in Week 8 but has a good matchup in Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Deshaun Watson went 29-for-39 for 309 yards and two touchdown passes while rushing seven times for 38 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Packers by a 35-20 score in Week 7 action.

Fantasy Impact: Watson played from behind most of the game and had a season-high in pass attempts and completions. Look for the team to continue to throw as they have struggled to stop teams with their porous defense. Watson is off in Week 8 for the bye and faces the Jaguars in Week 9 which should be a good matchup.

Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle) is inactive for Week 7 vs. the Packers. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This will be Akins third consecutive game missed due to the high ankle sprain. Darren Fells Will once again take over starter duties and should be viewed as a TE2 today.

Pharaoh Brown caught both his target for 33 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Titans in overtime by a 42-36 score in Week 6 action.

Fantasy Impact: Brown moved up the depth chart on Sunday with starter Jordan Akins out with a concussion. Akins should be back in Week 7 which will move Brown back to a limited role with the team.

The Houston Texans are placing LB Benardrick McKinney on season-ending IR with a shoulder injury that will require surgery. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a huge blow to a weak Houston defense. McKinney has been a staple at LB for the Texans since being drafted in the second round in 2015, racking up 95 or more tackles in each of the last four seasons. He remains under contract with Houston through 2021.

Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Isaiah Coulter returned to practice on Wednesday. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Coulter is seemingly buried on the depth chart for the Houston Texans, but aside from Will Fuller, no one is impervious to losing snaps to a more effective player. Coulter is more of a dynasty stash, but for those of you in redraft leagues, he may just be an injury away from entering the rotation once healthy. He is someone to add to your watch list.

Buddy Howell did not see any carries or passes in Week 2 as the Texans lost to the Ravens by a 33-16 score.

Fantasy Impact: It looked like Howell might see some action in Week 2 with Duke Johnson out with an injury. The team went exclusively with David Johnson on Sunday and Howell was stuck on special teams once again. Unless David Johnson gets hurt, Howell should be left on the waiver wire.

Keke Coutee caught both of his targets for 11 yards and lost a costly fumble in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Coutee was inactive in Week 1 but was back on the field on Sunday. The 23-year-old receiver made a critical turnover on his second catch when the ball was knocked loose and scooped up by L.J. Fort, who returned the fumble for a touchdown to give Baltimore a 20-7 lead late in the second quarter. That was the turning point of the game as the Ravens were never threatened afterward.

The Houston Texans came to terms with LB Zach Cunningham on a four-year, $58 million extension. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The three-year standout has tallied 339 tackles, one interception and 13 passes defended in 46 games for Houston since they selected him in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Though Cunningham's being paid as a top tier LB, his fantasy value is more like that of a high-end tier-three IDP. Maybe this season he'll find 14.5 million reasons to crack his way into the top tier finally.

CB Gareon Conley has been placed on the PUP by the Houston Texans. Conley underwent offseason ankle surgery. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Conley can be removed from the PUP at any time prior to the start of the regular season. If he’s not ready to roll, he’ll remain on the PUP through Week 6. The Texans hope to have their best lockdown corner available come Week 1.

The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with second-round draft choice DT Ross Blacklock from TCU. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The hard-nosed run-stuffing tackle played just two full seasons at TCU, but it was enough to net him as the 40th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He’ll join a very solid defensive line in Houston that will look to take another step forward this season.
