  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz considering retirement    Mon Feb 12, 01:54 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz said he is considering retirement after suffering three concussions in 2017. He is also considering sitting out the 2018 season and coming back later.

Footballguys view: Concussions were a huge problem for Fiedorowicz and he only played in five games in 2017. A third-round pick in 2014, Fiedorowicz may be done playing football. Expect the Texans to look for help at the position in the draft or free agency.

  Texans | Two Texans sent to IR    Tue Dec 5, 05:20 PM

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Ellington being lost for the season hurts their depth at the WR position, but they could be getting Will Fuller (ribs) back this week. Fiedorowicz has suffered three concussions over the last 12 months and his future in football is in serious doubt. Stephen Anderson will take over as the starting TE for the Texans this week.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (head) left the team's Week 13 game and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz already had two concussions this year, so this would certainly be a season-ender. Stephen Anderson is the best healthy tight end on the Texans roster right now.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) will receive a lot of playing time against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz made it through the week of practice with no setbacks, and he's set to return to the field for the first time since the season opener. Fantasy owners in need of help at the TE position could look to Fiedorowicz as a low-end option.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz ready to roll    Fri Nov 10, 02:50 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 10. TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list due to a concussion in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz is a viable desperation play. He should assume his old role right away. While Tom Savage is not an effective quarterback, he could lean on Fiedorowicz as a short and intermediate target in the middle of the field.

Houston Texans TEs C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion), Ryan Griffin (concussion) and Stephen Anderson (concussion) as well as WR Bruce Ellington (concussion) and LB Brian Cushing (concussion) are all unlikely to play Thursday, Sept. 15, versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: That's all three of their TEs that are concussed. They do have rookie Evan Baylis on their practice squad, but they'll have to sign at least one tight end even if Baylis is activated.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz extension update    Thu Aug 31, 07:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz signed a three-year contract extension worth $21.5 million, according to a source. The deal includes $10 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz could end up a sneaky TE2 given that there are very few options for the Texans to throw to not named Hopkins. The question is whether he will be able to do anything with an increase in opportunities.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz receives extension    Thu Aug 31, 06:35 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with the Texans Thursday, Aug. 31. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz may see an uptick in targets with as many injuries and underperforming options as there are in the Texans passing offense. DeAndre Hopkins will continue to be the number one, but Fiedorowicz could get enough targets to be a sneaky TE2.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (thigh) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz should see plenty of targets from Tom Savage, but overall the inexperienced quarterback is going to limit his yardage total. He's an OK start, but there are much better out there.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz being out means that Ryan Griffin will be the #1 tight end this week and he's worth a look if you are desperate at the position.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz managed a team-high six receptions for 44 yards in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted a team-high nine times, too.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz is a favorite target for QB Brock Osweiler, but he misses out on some touchdowns. Once again, TE Ryan Griffin got into the end zone instead of Fiedorowicz. That makes Fiedorowicz more of a TE2 on a weekly basis.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz limited    Thu Dec 1, 06:41 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz's game has been rather up and down the past few weeks and we aren't very excited about his prospects against Green Bay. Normally you can throw against the Packers but last week they clamped down, and if they can continue that trend the Texans are going to struggle. We expect the Texans to do just that which means Fiedorowicz is no more than a middle-of-the-road TE2 this week.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Coming off a six-catch, 82 yard game, Fiedorowicz has settled into a nice TE2 spot most weeks and makes for a good streaming option. He's definitely worth the TE2 tag this week.

Footballguys view: We'd feel better about Fiedorowicz in this matchup if he wasn't getting TDs vultured away by TEs Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson. As it stands, we like him as a low-end TE1 against the Raiders on Monday night.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz caught three passes for 26 yards in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterback Brock Osweiler threw touchdown passes to TEs Stephen Anderson and Ryan Griffin.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz's shine is fading with two other tight ends involved and the Texans attempting to play as conservative as possible on offense. He has a better matchup next week at Oakland, but is only a mid-level streamer at best.
