Texans WR Tank Dell expects to be able to participate in the team's offseason program, according to insider Aaron Wilson. Dell's rookie season ended with a fractured fibula in early December, but the injury shouldn't be an issue for his 2024 fantasy value. Dell was brilliant before that injury, ranking 12th among WRs in PPR points per game. His 2.22 yards per route run ranked 16th among 80 qualifying WRs and third among 14 qualifying rookie WRs. Dell sits 20th in our initial PPR WR Rankings.

Bobby Slowik is getting a "significant raise" to remain the Texans' OC, according to insider Albert Breer. Slowik drew significant HC interest after leading Houston to top-13 finishes in both total yards and points this past year. His return is good news for QB C.J. Stroud and the Texans offense, although we'd like to see Slowik lean further toward the pass in 2024. Last year's Texans ranked 16th in neutral pass rate and 19th in Pass Rate Over Expected.

Texans WR Tank Dell underwent surgery on his fractured fibula on Monday and will miss the rest of the season, HC Demeco Ryans said. Ryans added that Dell should be ready for the start of the offseason program, so this injury shouldn't impact his 2024 fantasy outlook. Dell averaged 8.4 targets, 5.1 catches, 77.3 yards, and 0.9 TDs in eight games with a snap rate north of 50%. His 2.24 yards per route run ranks 15th among 69 WRs with 40+ targets -- and third among 12 rookie WRs with 40+ targets. Tied to QB C.J. Stroud, Dell looks like a WR2 target in 2024 fantasy drafts and a top-25 dynasty WR.

Texans WR Nico Collins ended Sunday with a 9-191-1 receiving line, reaching new career highs in receptions and receiving yards in Week 13 vs. the Broncos. This is the third time in 2023 that Collins has eclipsed the 100-yard mark and found the end zone in the same game. It’ll be vital for Houston’s offense that he maintains this success in the aftermath of rookie WR Tank Dell leaving the contest in the first quarter with a broken fibula. Fantasy managers were already starting Collins in lineups, but those seeking a Dell replacement should look no further than Noah Brown. While he didn’t record a catch on either of his 2 targets, Brown paced Collins with 100% route participation and snap rate in Week 13, clearly serving as the Texans' WR2. Plus, he’d recorded back-to-back 100+-yard efforts that yielded top-6 PPR finishes between Week 9-10 prior to being sidelined by a knee injury. Keep an eye out for Brown on the waiver wire.

Texans WR Tank Dell has been diagnosed with a fractured fibula and will be placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dell will miss at least four games and is likely done for the regular season. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for his return. Dell's injury is a hit to QB C.J. Stroud's fantasy value but leaves behind a lot of opportunity for Houston's other pass catchers. Nico Collins will be the clear No. 1 the rest of the way, with WRs Noah Brown, Robert Woods, and John Metchie behind him. We'll have more on those guys in this week's waiver wire article.

Texans WR Tank Dell's left ankle got rolled up on in the first quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He had to be carted back to the locker room. It's safe to assume his day is over. Let's hope the rookie is able to play again this season.

Texans WR Tank Dell (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Broncos. He got in two limited practices to close the week and never seemed in danger of missing this one. Dell is fine to keep in fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is expected to play vs. the Broncos today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday, so we're a bit surprised he's playing. This will be the first time since Week 1 that Brown, Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods are all available. Brown actually led the Texans with a 75% route rate in that one, although it's safe to say that won't be the case today. We'd try not to use Brown in Week 13 fantasy lineups with the playing-time uncertainty in his first game off a multi-week knee injury.

Insider Jordan Schultz confirms that WR Tank Dell (calf) is expected to play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. The rookie is listed as questionable, but HC Demeco Ryans said early in the week that Dell would likely be available for this one. We're expecting him to play his usual role, meaning that Dell should be in fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Tank Dell (calf) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Broncos. He got in two limited practices to close the week and said Friday that he’ll play on Sunday. Dell can stay penciled into fantasy lineups. We’ll get Houston’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Texans WR Tank Dell (calf) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. The rookie is fully expected to play vs. the Broncos this weekend, but check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Texans WR Tank Dell missed Wednesday's practice with a calf injury. He had imaging done on the calf after last week's loss to the Jaguars, per insider Aaron Wilson, but the injury is considered "relatively minor," and Dell is expected to play vs. the Broncos this weekend. We'll keep an eye on the rookie over the next few days, but he can stay penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Tank Dell posted a 5-50-1 receiving line in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. That trailed WR Nico Collins (7-104-1) and marked the second straight game in which he drew fewer targets than Collins. But Dell had another target negated by penalty, and it came on a key play. Dell caught a 62-yard pass that would have been the team's longest play by 28 yards, but an illegal-shift penalty negated the play. That wiped out a target that would have tied Dell with Collins for the team lead and eliminated a catch that would have given him the slight edge over Collins. Dell remains a strong target bet and should be in most fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him returning for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. That'd again leave Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods as Houston's top three WRs.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. That leaves Robert Woods in the No. 3 WR spot, behind Tank Dell and Nico Collins. Woods has been inefficient all season and is no better than a WR4 today.

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.
