Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 19 vs KC (6 / 3 / 80 / 1 rec)

Stills ended up getting the Texans offense going to start the game with a 54-yard touchdown reception from Watson. On a third-down play, Stills was able to break free after the Chiefs coverage busted and left him wide open for an easy throw from Watson. Outside of his touchdown reception, Stills was kept quiet. Only catching two more passes along the way for 26 yards for the remainder of the game.

2019 Week 18 vs BUF (5 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)

Kenny Stills played a steady part in the Texans offense, and he picked his spots to make his presence felt. Stills was working underneath the majority of the game, but then he sprung loose for a 20-yard reception off the arm of Watson. Stills ran a nice corner route to the left sideline where Watson hit him in stride to get the Texans offense moving.

2019 Week 16 vs TB (9 / 5 / 57 / 0 rec)

Leading the Texans in receiving against the Bucs, Stills was able to at least give Deshaun Watson some looks in the passing game. Watson did miss Stills after beating his defender to the middle of the field, but the ball was left behind him and picked off. Stills did most of his work on intermediate routes on the outside with his longest reception for 21 yards.

2019 Week 15 vs TEN (3 / 3 / 35 / 2 rec)

There were only three receptions on the day for Stills but two went for touchdowns. Stills caught two touchdowns that singled him. Up against Titans DB Logan Ryan. Stills in both plays was able to run to voids in the defense to allow Watson to throw easy passes for him to run under.

2019 Week 13 vs NE (4 / 3 / 61 / 1 rec)

With the Patriots slowing down Will Fuller, Kenny Stills was able to get one one one matchups majority of the game. He dropped a key 3rd down throw to keep the chains moving but was able to answer back with a 35-yard touchdown reception that saw him beat his defender to the back of the end zone. Stills was able to snag the pass while dragging his back foot to flip momentum to the Texans on a big play score. Stills also had a 20-yard reception to jump-start the offense coming out in the second half across the middle of the field.

2019 Week 11 vs BAL (7 / 4 / 27 / 0 rec)

Continuing to take the snaps that Will Fuller has vacated due to his hamstring injury, Stills is getting opportunities, but due to the total down day on offense, it was an unproductive day. Stills was open on plenty of plays, but due to breaking down in protection or Watson not seeing him, it lead to missed opportunities. Still did have four receptions, but he is doing enough to get open, it is just up to Watson to find him.

2019 Week 9 vs JAX (4 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)

Kenny Stills remains the starter with Will Fuller out with a hamstring injury. Stills went in and out of the game with a slight groin issue, and then he had the wind knocked out of him on a 10-yard reception where he landed hard on his back after making the reception. Stills is a first down machine, and all of his receptions went for first downs. His longest catch of the day was on a nice out route that saw him catch and make a defender miss for 18-yards.

2019 Week 7 vs IND (5 / 4 / 105 / 0 rec)

It remains a productive situation for Kenny Stills when he steps on the field. He had an outstanding catch on a 9-route when he was able to stack a cornerback down the sideline and catch a 45-yard reception. Stills was also used on crossing routes early in the game. After Fuller went down, Stills took his place in the offense and was on the field for the remainder of the game.

2019 Week 3 vs LAC (6 / 4 / 89 / 0 rec)

Kenny Stills is slowly being integrated into the offense and he is taking snaps away from slot wide receiver Keke Coutee. Stills is a true threat for the Texans offense and now he is rewarding the offense with big plays. Stills had two receptions for 38 and 31 yards getting the offense down field into scoring territory. Stills 31-yard reception came on a flea flicker that saw him make an outstretched catch down the left sideline. Stills was also wide open on a potential 30-plus or more gain wide open but Watson missed him throwing the football shorts. Stills is getting opportunities to make plays and is another weapon for a potentially deadly offense.

2019 Week 1 vs NO (3 / 3 / 37 / 1 rec)

There were three receptions for Kenny Stills in limited work, two jet sweeps and one post route to the middle of the field for a 37-yard touchdown strike. Stills will continue to be worked into the offense and his big play ability is evident.

Texans | Houston blows big lead, falls in Kansas City (Sun Jan 12, 06:31 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 31-of-52 passes for 388 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 51-31 AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, as the team blew a 24-0 lead. RB Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 44 yards, while Watson also added 37 yards and a score. WR DeAndre Hopkins ended up with nine grabs for 118 yards on a game-high 14 targets. WR Will Fuller was a nice secondary option with 89 yards on five catches, while WR Kenny Stills posted three receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. TE Darren Fells also had three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. RB Duke Johnson also chipped in with 11 rushing yards and five grabs for 23 yards. CB Lonnie Johnson also had a blocked kick return for touchdown in the first quarter while totaling four solo tackles.

Our View: Watson was gifted a 24-0 lead but then turned into a deer in the headlights like his teammates as the game quickly slipped away. The stats were great in a perfect fantasy football game script, but this game will be remembered as an all-time collapse. The Texans are unlikely to make any majors this offseason and will be without their first and third round picks in the draft.

Texans | Kenny Stills listed as questionable (Fri Jan 10, 04:17 PM) - Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 10, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.

Our View: Stills is questionable like Will Fuller...but it looks like Fuller is going to play in the Divisional Round. If Fuller is out there, then Stills will have a smaller role if he plays.
