Most Recent Shark Bites

The Texans fired HC David Culley and OC Tim Kelly. These guys were set up to fail with an expansion-level roster and might have actually overachieved by winning 4 games this season. GM Nick Caserio is expected to tap into the Patriots pipeline for his next HC.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks suffered a knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks has been activated from the COVID list. He'll return for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. Cooks posted 8-101 and 7-102-2 lines in his last 2 outings before missing Week 16.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Chargers, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Cooks' absence leaves WR Nico Collins as the best bet for targets in Houston -- but he's only in play in DFS tournaments.

The Texans on Wednesday placed WR Brandin Cooks and K Ka'imi Fairbairn on the COVID list. HC David Culley has said that LB Eric Wilson -- who also landed on the COVID list Wednesday -- is the team's only unvaccinated player. So Cooks and Fairbairn have a chance to return for Sunday's game against the Chargers. You should plan as though you won't have either guy available, though.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday, but it’s unclear if the back will be an issue today. Cooks carries more risk than usual in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday. We'll look for further updates on his status. His game kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll know whether he's active by 11:30 am ET.

Texans HC David Culley named QB Davis Mills his starter for the rest of the season. "He gives us the best chance to win," Culley said, suggesting that QB Tyrod Taylor's wrist injury didn't factor into this decision. Taylor has struggled lately -- but Mills managed just 6.6 yards per attempt with 6 TDs vs. 7 INTs in 6 starts earlier this season. WR Brandin Cooks at least averaged 8.2 targets, 6.2 catches and 62.5 yards in those Mills starts. Cooks remains the only Texan worth using in fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we’re expecting him to play his usual every-down role today.

Texans insider Aaron Wilson confirms that WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is expected to play vs. the Colts on Sunday. Cooks only got in a limited practice on Friday, but unless we hear otherwise, we're expecting him to be ready for his usual role tomorrow.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but should be fine come Sunday. Just check back that morning to make sure he’s active.

Texans HC David Culley announced Thursday that QB Tyrod Taylor will start this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins. Taylor has been out since hurting his hamstring back in Week 2. He was good before going down, posting a 291-2-0 passing line vs. the Jaguars in Week 1 and completing 10-of-11 passes for 125 yards and a score before exiting in Week 2. Taylor is only a starting option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues -- but his return is good news for WR Brandin Cooks.

Texans QB Davis Mills will get another start against the Rams on Sunday. QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) returned to practice this week but will miss at least 1 more game. "We just don't feel Tyrod is ready right now," HC David Culley said Friday. Taylor figures to return for Week 9.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR. He'll practice this week and has a chance to return for Sunday's game vs. the Rams if all goes well. Taylor is only an option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues but will be an upgrade for WR Brandin Cooks.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will return to practice on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. HC David Culley confirmed that Taylor remains the team's starter when healthy. He was off to a strong start before going down about midway through Week 2, completing 70.5% of his passes and averaging 9.5 yards per attempt. Taylor still isn't much of a fantasy option but should at least be good news for WR Brandin Cooks.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (neck) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Colts and is safe to get back into fantasy lineups as a lower-end WR2.

The Texans expect WR Brandin Cooks (neck) to return for Sunday's game against the Colts, according to The Houston Chronicle. Cooks was seemingly close to playing vs. the Bears this past week. He's back in the WR2 mix for Week 15. And his return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Bears. Keke Coutee (knee) is active and suddenly looks like QB Deshaun Watson’s #1 WR. WR Chad Hansen and TE Jordan Akins also project for targets boosts.
