  Texans | Deshaun Watson tied for rookie history    Wed Oct 18, 09:53 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is tied with retired QBs Kurt Warner and Mark Rypien for most touchdown passes (15) in a player's first six games of their career.

Footballguys view: Watson has been outstanding so far, and on track for a tremendous rookie year. He's off this week, but is a solid starter for fantasy purposes.

  Texans | Ryan Griffin posts 52 yards    Sun Oct 15, 05:46 PM

Houston Texans TE Ryan Griffin hauled in three receptions for 52 yards on a game-high eight targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: The Browns matchup vs. tight ends still gave up a lot of yards and a two-point conversion, but it was split between Griffin and Stephen Anderson. Delanie Walker should be great against them next week.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins scores in win    Sun Oct 15, 05:46 PM

  Texans | Will Fuller shines again in victory    Sun Oct 15, 05:45 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted two grabs for a game-high 62 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Fuller now has five scores in three games. He'll be back in our lineups in Week 8 after a bye next week, as Deshaun Watson has every reason to keep targeting Fuller deep. The margin of error is small with Fuller not getting a ton of targets, but until he cools off, he deserves a lineup spot.

  Texans | Lamar Miller quiet in Week 6    Sun Oct 15, 05:45 PM

  Texans | DeShaun Watson tosses three more TDs    Sun Oct 15, 05:44 PM

Houston Texans QB DeShaun Watson completed 17 of his 29 pass attempts for 225 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. He also rushed six times for 23 yards.

Footballguys view: One of Watson's touchdown passes went about six inches in the air, so that makes up for this matchup not forcing Watson to open up the passing game because the Browns weren't in the game for most of it. Watson is a strong QB1 heading into the bye.

  Texans | Lamar Miller wants big plays    Sat Oct 14, 12:51 AM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said he feels he has room for improvement and needs to start breaking longer runs. 'I feel like, me personally, I got to break some more runs, long runs,' Miller said. 'I don't think I've got a 20-yard run yet.'

Footballguys view: Miller is correct. By our count, his longest run of the year has been 19 yards (Week 2 vs Bengals). As teams maneuver to stop QB Deshaun Watson and the passing game, it could open things up more for Miller and the ground attack. Miller has a tough matchup against a good Browns rush defense (Browns have allowed the second-fewest yards per rush - 2.88 - and the sixth-fewest per game - 76.6 so far in 2017) in Week 6, making him a low-end RB1 or RB2 for fantasy owners.

  Texans | D'Onta Foreman limited Thursday    Thu Oct 12, 04:45 PM

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Lamar Miller is the only back here worth having on your roster, and should be in a solid place for RB2 production. Foreman could see enough cleanup work as to warrant a flex back start if you are short players due to bye, but keep your expectations low.
