General News (Fri Oct 19): is out for this week's game.
Week 7: at Jacksonville Jaguars
FBG says: Tough matchup. Deshaun Watson continues to have a roller coaster of a season. Watson has thrown for 300 or more yards in four of his six games, but the other two games he struggled mightily as he threw for just 176.5 yards average in those two games. Last week the number of hits that he took were an issue and supposedly played with a partially collapsed lung. The Texans receiving group is an extremely dynamic trio in DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee that creates significant mismatches for opponents. The Jacksonville pass defense hasn't been quite as smothering as it was in 2017 when they allowed the league's fewest net yards per attempt and third-fewest touchdowns. Even with last week's blowout loss, cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye remain extremely stingy in coverage - only Odell Beckham Jr. Sammy Watkins and last week star Cole Beasley have topped 61 yards in this matchup thus far. And their job is made much easier by the swarming pass rush. Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, and Malik Jackson lead a front that both bends the edge and collapses pockets, and the Jaguars rarely need to blitz coverage men to disrupt things. Fantasy players rely on Jacksonville opponents at their own risk.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 65 / 0 rec)
It is was the first game in sometime a tight end has been really involved in a game plan but part of that might have been lower targets to Will Fuller. Griffin did a solid job of finding spots on in the defense and extending drives for the offense. He had receptions for 12, 11, 10 and 8 to notch first downs, he also missed a tough catch in the end zone that went right through his hands on tight coverage. Also, if Watson would have let a play develop in the red zone, there could have been an easy pitch and catch for a touchdown.
2018 Week 3 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 44 / 0 rec)
The Texans primarily tight end, Griffin better start handling his other duties outside of receiving the ball better or his playing time is going to be cut into. Griffin did have 2 receptions for 44 yards and had a long for 32. The Texans tight end group has been hit or miss but part of the issue is Watson not getting them the football. Griffin has been open more times than not but being a liability in blocking situations is not helping his cause which might cause the rookies of Thomas and Akins to start taking some of his time on the field.
2018 Week 1 vs NE (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ryan Griffin is the primary tight end and even though he had zero receptions during the game, he was wide open on four of those targets in which Watson delivered poor passes. The most egregious one was when Griffin was 1-on-1 with a safety, had him beat to the end zone and Watson threw a inaccurate pass no where close for Griffin to make a play. Griffin had golden chances to make plays but was let down by Watson who couldn't deliver.

OL Zach Fulton (ankle) did not participate in practice for third straight day Friday and is listed as questionable. WR Keke Coutee (hamstring), WR Will Fuller (hip) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) were limited in practice Friday but no longer appear on injury report. DE Joel Heath (knee), S Kareem Jackson (thigh), CB Johnathan Joseph (shoulder), LB Whitney Mercilus (ankle), RB Lamar Miller (chest) and QB Deshaun Watson (chest) participated fully in practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report. Our View: Colvin being out should make Dede Westbrook's matchup even better this week, but he's only a what the heck flex because you are relying on Blake Bortles.
