Texans TE Jordan Akins (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs. TE Darren Fells remains questionable with his hip injury. If he can't go, Houston would be down to TE Jordan Thomas.

The Texans made a series of moves at TE on Monday. They placed Jordan Thomas and rookie Kahale Warring on IR. Thomas suffered a rib injury in the 2nd half of Thursday's preseason finale. Warring dealt with a concussion and hamstring injury and missed most of the summer. Houston signed veteran Logan Paulsen, whom Atlanta cut over the weekend. He joins Jordan Akins and Darren Fells. You would be best off avoiding all Houston TEs in fantasy for now. Thomas and Warring will be eligible for the designation to return this season.

The Texans have already dumped TE Ryan Griffin, who led the position in targets for them last season. Second-year man Jordan Thomas has spent OTAs taking the starter reps, and Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle says he's "building a case as the top candidate to be a starter." Thomas edged fellow rookie Jordan Akins in playing time last year, despite arriving 2 rounds later in the draft. We're highly intrigued by the long-term outlook for 2019 third-round TE Kahale Warring, but Thomas looks like the best bet for 2019 production. That said, this isn't a high-upside situation, given the TE crowd, the talent at WR and the history of Bill O'Brien TEs. Consider Thomas a late option in best-ball drafts and FFPC formats.

The Texans selected San Diego State TE Kahale Warring in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Warring didn’t play a lick of football until his senior year of high school in 2014. He totaled just 20 catches across his first 3 college seasons before leading a run-heavy Aztecs team with 31 catches last year. The 6'5, 252-pounder registered a strong 79th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine and is also 1 of the best blocking TEs in this class. Warring will find opportunity in Houston, where the depth chart consists of Ryan Griffin, Jordan Thomas and Jordan Akins.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (illness) is out for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. We still don't have any details on the issue that's cost him 2 games now. Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas will again handle TE duties for Houston, but neither is a fantasy option.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with an illness. We'll look for more details on what's ailing him. Griffin's absence leaves Houston with rookie TEs Jordan Thomas and Jordan Akins. Neither is a fantasy option.
