General News (Wed Sep 18): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Week 3: at Los Angeles Chargers

All WR vs LAC

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Deshaun Watson and the Texans passing offense put forth a meager effort against the Jaguars in Week 2. Watson completed just over 50 percent of his passes for only 159 yards with no touchdowns. He continues to take a beating behind this struggling offensive line as Watson went down four more times last week, bringing his sack total up to a league-leading 10 on the season. DeAndre Hopkins was held to just 40 yards with a long reception of only 14 yards as he struggled against tight coverage--a rare sight from an elite receiver like Hopkins. Will Fuller saw a big bump in targets in Week 2, but his production still lacked last week. Keke Coutee made his season debut after missing Week 1 with an injury, but he was not heavily involved and will compete for snaps in the slot with Kenny Stills as they split relatively evenly last week. Running back Duke Johnson Jr. was shut out of the passing game last week as well, which is a concern as that seems to be his primary source of value with Carlos Hyde eating up the rushing attempts. Johnson's snap count was down last week, but his usage through should be relatively game script dependent. The Chargers secondary suffered yet another blow last week as safety Adrian Phillips broke his arm and will miss several weeks. Phillips was playing in place of star safety Derwin James and has been a key piece of the Chargers secondary, so this will be a heavily felt loss. With cornerback Trevor Williams still sidelined with a knee injury, this secondary has become much thinner than anyone would have thought coming into the season. They still have one of the top slot cornerbacks in the league in Desmond King, who should make it tough on Keke Coutee and Kenny Stills this week. Casey Hayward Jr. is also a stout matchup for any opposing receiver and should shadow DeAndre Hopkins this week. Will Fuller should have a good matchup against second-year cornerback Brandon Facyson though, as Facsyon has given up over 2.5 yards per route covered and nearly a 75 percent catch rate in his limited time on the field. Safety will be a clear weakness as well, opening up the chances for some big plays by this Texans receiving corps.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs JAX (7 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)

With Hopkins taken out of the game, the Texans turned to Will Fuller to pick up the slack. Fuller had beautiful 28-yard reception off the arm of Watson to get the Texans out from deep in their territory. Fuller got down the right sideline, and Watson dropped a dime to him in stride. Fuller had two costly drops both that hit him in his hands that he could not haul in. Fuller had a couple of receptions for 7 yards but missed his big opportunities in the passing game with his drops.

2019 Week 1 vs NO (3 / 2 / 69 / 0 rec)

The Texans offense was looking for anything after slow start then Watson went to a big throw to Fuller for 54 yards over Eli Apple. It was on an under thrown ball but it was adjusted well to by Fuller to make the reception. Fuller also had another target intercepted when Watson forced it into double coverage.
