Texans WRs Nico Collins (foot) and Brandin Cooks (calf) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. That leaves Phillip Dorsett, Chris Moore and Amari Rodgers as Houston's top 3 WRs. They're only worth considering as cheap DFS tournament fliers.

Insider Aaron Wilson reports that Texans WRs Nico Collins (foot) and Brandin Cooks (calf) are expected to miss Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. That'd leave Phillip Dorsett, Chris Moore and Amari Rodgers as Houston's top 3 WRs. The TEs and RBs figure to pick up extra targets -- but your best bet is avoiding this entire offense this week. Houston is currently sporting a 13-point implied total.

Texans WR Nico Collins (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details on his status. We'll see if Collins is able to get on the field tomorrow, ahead of Sunday's meeting with the Cowboys.

Texans QB Davis Mills will start Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys, insider Aaron Wilson reports. QB Kyle Allen was a disaster the past 2 weeks, averaging 5.3 yards per pass attempt with 2 TDs vs. 4 INTs. Mills wasn't very good over the first 10 games of the season, but we'd consider him a slight upgrade for the offense.

Texans WR Nico Collins managed just 3 catches for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to the Browns, despite leading the team with 10 targets. That marked a 25.6% share of Houston's total pass attempts and beat his nearest teammate by 4 targets. Collins did, at least, snag the team's only TD: a 6-yard catch with just less than 2 minutes remaining in the game. We'll see about WR Brandin Cooks' availability for a Week 14 visit to Dallas.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (calf) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. He evidently injured his calf on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. We'll see if he misses time beyond Week 13. His absence on Sunday leaves Nico Collins as Houston's #1 WR, with Chris Moore and Phillip Dorsett the #2 and #3.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Texans QB Kyle Allen will start Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. HC Lovie Smith declined to name a starter at Wednesday's press conference, but QB Davis Mills is evidently getting yanked. Mills has been 1 of the worst QBs in the league this season, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt with 11 TDs vs. 11 INTs. He ranks 21st among 31 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' passing grades. Allen doesn't project as a tangible upgrade, though. He owns a career 63% completion rate, 6.9 yards-per-attempt average and 24-to-17 TD:INT ratio. Hopefully you can avoid Houston's passing game in fantasy lineups this week. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins would be shaky WR3 plays.

Despite the return of disgruntled veteran WR Brandin Cooks, 2nd-year WR Nico Collins led the team in targets (10) and catches (5) in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Collins also played more snaps (50-41) than Cooks and ran more routes (33-26). Collins took his 5 receptions for 49 yards, ranking 3rd behind TE Jordan Akins (3-72) and WR Chris Moore (3-70). Collins did claim the team's only TD reception. Moore tied Cooks for 2nd on the team in pass routes, with Akins and WR Phillip Dorsett just 5 routes behind. Cooks will need to pick back up in that area to comfortably reside in fantasy WR3 territory going forward. To be fair, he did catch a 19-yard TD in the 4th quarter Sunday that was nullified by a holding penalty. A Week 11 matchup with the Commanders presents upside for the Houston passing game.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. Underwhelming even before the wrist injury and trade drama, Cooks is no better than a WR3 in Week 10 fantasy lineups. WR Nico Collins (groin) is also active for Houston and should step back in as the #2 WR.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Between this wrist injury, his recent trade request and Houston’s lackluster passing game, Cooks is a shaky Week 10 fantasy play. WR Nico Collins (groin) is also listed as questionable after 3 limited practices.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. WR Nico Collins (groin) remained limited on Thursday.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) did not practice on Wednesday. He's expected to play vs. the Giants this weekend -- if his health allows it. Cooks played through this wrist injury in Week 8. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow. WR Nico Collins (groin) got in a limited practice on Wednesday.

The Texans list WR Brandin Cooks as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. There is no injury challenging Cooks' availability. He has simply been away from the team for personal reasons this week, while Houston elected not to accept any trade offers for the veteran. It's not clear how the 2 sides will proceed. The Texans clearly want him to continue playing. Cooks has indicated he'd be happier elsewhere ... but also signed an extension before the season. We'll see about his status ahead of the Thursday night game. Houston also ruled WR Nico Collins (groin) out. So the passing game would be in real trouble (even more than usual) without Cooks.

The Texans have downgraded WR Nico Collins (groin) to out for Sunday's game against the Titans. It's not a surprise. Collins missed practice all week, and HC Lovie Smith spoke about the injury as though a return was not imminent. We'll see whether Collins can make it back for the Week 9 meeting with Philadelphia. That's a Thursday night game, though, which won't help. WR Brandin Cooks gains target upside while Collins is out.

The Texans list WR Nico Collins (groin) as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. He didn’t practice all week, though, and is not expected to play. That’ll leave Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore as Houston’s #2 and #3 WRs – and should mean more targets for WR Brandin Cooks.
