Texans WR Brandin Cooks is officially inactive for tonight's game vs. the Eagles. Try to avoid Houston's passing game if you can help it. But if you're playing 1-game DFS contests, the Texans' WRs tonight are Phillip Dorsett, Chris Moore, Tyron Johnson and Jalen Camp. Woof.

Texans RB Dameon Pierce managed only 35 yards on his 15 carries in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He did score the team's lone TD, though, on a 3-yard reception in the 4th quarter. He totaled 3 catches for 16 yards among 5 targets, which tied for 2nd on the team. Only WR Brandin Cooks drew more (6), catching 4 balls for 73 yards. WR Phillip Dorsett tied Pierce's target count.

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.

Texans WR John Metchie has been diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. "I am currently receiving great medical care, am in good spirits and I expect to make a recovery at a later point in time," Metchie said in a statement. "As a result of this diagnosis, I will likely not be playing football this season. My main focus will be on my health and recovery." We'll keep tabs on Metchie and wish him the best in his recovery. The 2nd-round rookie projected as Houston's slot receiver once recovered from his torn ACL. The Texans are now left with WRs Chris Conley, Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore behind Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins. TE Brevin Jordan might also benefit from Metchie's absence.

The Seahawks placed WR D'Wayne Eskridge (concussion) on IR. He'll miss tonight's game vs. the Rams and at least 2 weeks beyond that. Seattle promoted WR Phillip Dorsett from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Dorsett is active for tonight's game.

The Jaguars signed WR Phillip Dorsett. The 29th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft has yet to top 33 catches or 528 yards in a season. He missed almost all of the 2020 campaign with a right foot injury that required surgery. Now 28, Dorsett's best-case scenario in Jacksonville is providing a few splash plays. He remains off the fantasy radar.

The Seahawks have released WR Paul Richardson, less than a week after re-signing him. That timeline makes it surprising. But since bringing Richardson back, Seattle has also re-signed WR Josh Gordon and re-worked WR David Moore's contract. So it's not ultimately a shock to see Richardson left out. Phillip Dorsett also remains in the WR3 picture. And, of course, we're talking about 1 of the league's most run-leaning offenses. So none of these wideouts is likely to make a significant fantasy impact.

The Seahawks have signed WR Paul Richardson. He spent his first 4 NFL seasons from 2014 to 2017 in Seattle, posting a career-best 44-703-6 line in that final year. Richardson figures to duke it out with Phillip Dorsett for the #3 WR job. He'd need an injury to Tyler Lockett or D.K. Metcalf to have a shot at real fantasy value.

The Seahawks have signed WR Phillip Dorsett to a 1-year deal. A 1st-round pick back 2015, Dorsett has yet to top 33 catches or 528 yards in a season. He's coming off a 29-396-5 line with the Patriots last year. Dorsett will battle for #3 WR duties in Seattle and is unlikely to emerge as a 2020 fantasy asset barring injury to Tyler Lockett or D.K. Metcalf.

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are active for tonight’s game against the Texans. Dorsett should be a full-go after clearing the protocol on Wednesday. Sanu comes with a bit more risk, although he did put in 3 limited practices this week.

Patriots WRs Phillip Dorsett (concussion) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are expected to play against the Texans tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Dorsett news was expected after he cleared the protocol Wednesday, but Sanu is surprising after we heard last week that he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Consider both guys risk/reward WR3s in tonight's plus matchup. Rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers are no longer fantasy options.

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Texans. Both guys were limited in practice all week. Sanu is reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, so consider him no better than 50/50 for this one. Dorsett said Wednesday that he cleared the concussion protocol, but the fact that he remained limited all week is slightly concerning. We’ll look for updates on both guys Sunday morning.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett has cleared the concussion protocol. Barring a setback, he'll return for Sunday night's game against the Texans. Dorsett figures to slide back into the starting lineup and will carry some fantasy upside vs. Houston's 20th-ranked WR defense.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he’ll be limited today. WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are inactive, leaving rookies N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as New England’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.
