Texans WR Robert Woods (hip) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Colts. He joins WR Noah Brown (back) on the inactive list. That leaves WRs Xavier Hutchinson and John Metchie behind No. 1 WR Nico Collins. TE Dalton Schultz could play an expanded role in the passing game tonight.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud has cleared concussion protocol and will play vs. the Titans on Sunday, barring a setback between now and then, insider Aaron Wilson reports. With Stroud out the past two weeks, Houston has totaled just 41 points and 370 passing yards. The rookie's return is a big boost for the entire offense, particularly WR Nico Collins, WR Noah Brown, and TE Dalton Schultz. See where all the Texans sit in the Week 17 Rankings.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Browns, a source tells ESPN. The team, of course, will continue to monitor Stroud's progress through the concussion protocol before making a final decision on his Week 16 status. But fantasy owners should now assume that it'll be QB Case Keenum at the helm for Houston again this weekend. Keenum did just enough to eke out a win over the Titans last week, completing 64% of his passes at 6.4 yards per attempt with one TD and one INT. This news obviously deals a blow to all of Houston's pass-catchers.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz didn't post big numbers (4-58 receiving on 5 targets) in Sunday's OT win over the Titans. But he had a good day. His 34 routes tied for second on the team, found him on the field for 85.7% of Houston dropbacks and dominated No. 2 TE Brevin Jordan (7 routes, 17.5%). The game marked Schultz' return from two weeks down for a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the previous contest. The role could make him a key contributor in Week 16 against the Browns, who reached Week 15 as the third-best scoring matchup for TEs and third-worst for WRs. Schultz will push for a top-12 spot in our Week 16 TE rankings.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. Houston can certainly use Schultz with WRs Tank Dell and Nico Collins out. But QB C.J. Stroud’s likely absence dings Schultz’s fantasy value.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. It's good timing for the Texans, who lost WR Tank Dell for the season and will likely be without WR Nico Collins this weekend. But Schultz would be tough to trust as a TE1 if QB Davis Mills is under center.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) is out for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He was limited in practice on Wednesday but sidelined on Thursday and Friday, so it looks like he suffered a setback. Brevin Jordan will again operate as Houston’s lead TE on Sunday after posting a 3-64-0 line on five targets last weekend.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. That followed a limited workout on Wednesday. It's unclear whether this was a planned day off or if Schultz suffered a setback. We'll learn more tomorrow.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Jets. We'll track his progress over the next few days.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) missed practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos. His status for Week 14 and beyond is uncertain. Schultz’s absence leaves Houston with TEs Brevin Jordan and Eric Saubert. Jordan ran 19 pass routes to Saubert’s two last week and will likely operate as the primary pass-catching TE against Denver’s 27th-ranked TE defense. You can probably do better in season-long fantasy leagues, but Jordan is an intriguing salary-saver in DFS.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's seemingly in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. Schultz's absence would leave Brevin Jordan as Houston's lead TE -- and likely push more targets to the WRs.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. It's the first we've heard of the injury -- but might explain why his playing time plummeted in last week's loss to the Jaguars. We'll see if Schultz is able to get back on the field tomorrow. Brevin Jordan would likely operate as Houston's lead TE vs. Denver this weekend if Schultz is out.

Dalton Schultz has generally dominated playing time and opportunities among Texans TEs, but that wasn't the case in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. TE Brevin Jordan set season highs in playing time and routes. According to Pro Football Focus, he ran a route on 19 of C.J. Stroud's 47 dropbacks (40.4%). Schultz's mere 47.8% route rate for the game was his second-lowest of the season. It also marked a surprising fall vs. the previous four games, all of which found Schultz running a route on more than 80% of dropbacks. We've seen no report of an injury for Schultz, so we'll keep watch for any explanation of the Week 12 variation. Barring some indication from the team that Schultz will return to his previous usage, he'll make for a shaky play against an improved Broncos defense in Week 13. Jordan, meanwhile, will need to see his usage climb much further before he'll be a fantasy option.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. No word yet on the severity of the injury or whether Collins is in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. His absence would be a boost for WRs Tank Dell and Noah Brown and TE Dalton Schultz. Check back tomorrow for another update on Collins.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz caught 10 balls for 130 yards and a TD in the 39-37 Week 9 win over the Bucs. The catches and yards were both career highs. Schultz tied for the team lead with 11 targets (26% share). This will very likely go down as Schultz's best game of the season. But he's now found the end zone in four of Houston's last five games while averaging 7.2 targets per game. The Texans gave Schultz a one-year, $6.25 million deal in free agency, so it's not a major surprise that he's emerged as a big part of this passing game. Schultz looks like a weekly TE1 going forward. There's nothing scary on the upcoming schedule, with games against the Bengals, Cardinals, Jaguars, and Broncos.

Texans WR Nico Collins hauled 4 of 6 targets for a team-high 80 receiving yards in Week 6’s win vs. the Saints. TE Dalton Schultz also had a good game, posting 4 catches for 61 yards and a TD on Sunday. After a slow start to the season, Schultz has now recorded at least 40 receiving yards and 1 TD in three consecutive games. We won’t see the Texans again until Week 8 vs. the Panthers. Hopefully, by then, fantasy managers will have rookie WR Nathaniel ‘Tank’ Dell (concussion) back in the fold.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz led the team with 10 targets, seven catches, and 65 yards in the Week 5 loss to the Falcons. He also scored the team's only TD, breaking loose from 18 yards out with under two minutes left in the fourth quarter. It was easily the best game of the season for Schultz, who had totaled just 10 catches on 17 targets through the first four games. Houston lost WRs Tank Dell (concussion) and Robert Woods (ribs) in Atlanta, though. If those guys miss more time, Schultz will have an opportunity to soak up more targets. The bad news is that he gets a tough Week 6 matchup vs. a Saints defense that entered this week ranked fifth in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Colts today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Stroud was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday with a sore right shoulder. He's no better than a low-end QB2 in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but his availability is good news for Houston's offense.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (shoulder) was added to the injury report and limited in Friday's practice. He's listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Per insider Aaron Wilson, Stroud "didn't do much" on Friday to "rest sore right, throwing shoulder, but is expected to try to play against Colts." That doesn't sound great. Hopefully Stroud wasn't in your Week 2 fantasy plans. QB Davis Mills will start on Sunday if Stroud can't. The situation adds downside to Houston's pass-catchers.

Texans TE Dalton Schultz ranked third at the position in first-team snaps in Sunday night's preseason finale. He played just four of the nine snaps that QB C.J. Stroud played, running two routes and drawing one target. Schultz did lead Houston TEs in those latter two categories. But he trailed Teagan Quitoriano (six snaps) and Dalton Keene (five) in playing time. It's just one game, and Stroud attempted only four passes total. Schultz's three targets in the previous outing tied for second on the team. So Sunday night's usage shouldn't leave you panicking if you've already drafted Schultz. But it's enough to confirm that he belongs in TE2 territory of upcoming fantasy football drafts. And if you have already drafted Schultz, you might want to check our TE rankings for an early pickup off waivers as insurance.
