C.J. Fiedorowicz Fantasy Football News 2017

The Texans have activated TE C.J. Fiedorowicz from IR. He was shut down after sustaining a concussion back in Week 1 -- his 3rd in a 9-month span. But he's been cleared and will return for this weekend's game against the Rams. Fiedorowicz is a low-upside fantasy play with Tom Savage under center.

The Texans have placed TE C.J. Fiedorowicz on IR after he suffered his 3rd concussion in the past 9 months in Sunday's opener. Fiedorowicz could be a candidate to return in 8+ weeks but isn't worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues. TEs Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson are also likely to miss Thursday night's game against the Bengals with concussions. It all just means more targets for WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz was knocked out of Sunday's opener with a concussion. He was also listed on this week's injury report with a concussion and suffered one last December. He's a long shot to be cleared ahead of Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He's done for the day. Griffin's absence could mean an extra target for 2 for TE C.J. Fiedorowicz.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is listed on Wednesday's injury report with a concussion. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Fiedorowicz put in a full practice, putting him on track to play against the Jaguars this weekend. But the head injury is worth filing away. He also suffered a concussion last December.

Texans C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play on Saturday night against a Bengals team that’s allowed the 3rd most catches and 2nd most receiving yards to TEs.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday, putting him on track to play against the Bengals on Saturday night. Only 2 teams have allowed more catches to TEs than Cincinnati, and only 1 has allowed more yards. Fiedorowicz will be a high-floor TE1 if he suits up this weekend.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Ryan Griffin will step in as Houston’s starter and is an intriguing TE2.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to get cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. That'd leave Ryan Griffin as the top TE in what's become a TE-centric passing game.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz did not practice on Wednesday. It's basically confirmation that he sustained a concussion in the win over the Colts. We'll see if he can get cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. Jacksonville.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game in Indianapolis to get checked for a concussion. He corralled just 3 of 7 targets for 32 yards before exiting. But the targets and catches actually led the team on a day when QB Brock Osweiler completed just 14 of 24 attempts. We'll look for an update on the concussion and monitor Fiedorowicz's status throughout this coming week. He'll be a low-upside fantasy option if he's able to play against the Jaguars next week.

The forecast for today's Texans-Packers game calls for 1-3 inches of snow. Wind won't be a major factor, though, at just 5-10 mph. Green Bay's passing game is safe to keep in fantasy lineups. There's nothing safe about Houston's passing game, but that has nothing to do with the weather.

Texans WR Will Fuller (leg) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. With WR Jaelen Strong (ankle) also out, Braxton Miller figures to serve as Houston’s #2 WR. The rookie remains a weak fantasy play, though. TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is a good bet to finish 2nd in targets behind DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is not expected to play against the Redskins today, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.  Graham was listed as questionable but didn't practice at all this week, so he shouldn't be considered a lock to be ready for Week 2.  Rookie TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is expected to start in Graham's place today, with TE Ryan Griffin also seeing more action.  Neither guy is a recommended fantasy play.

The Texans may have dumped HC Gary Kubiak, but they still want the TE cupboard stocked.  They opened the 3rd round of the 2014 NFL draft by taking Iowa's C.J. Fiedorowicz.  He caught just 91 passes in a career of underuse at Iowa but flashed good athleticism at the Scouting Combine, including a 4.76 time in the 40.  The strong blocking background that seems to accompany all Iowa TEs should help him get on the field earlier, but Fiedorowicz will open his Texans career behind Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin on the depth chart.  He's only a late consideration even in dynasty formats.
