The Texans signed WR Chris Conley to a 1-year deal. A plus athlete, Conley has yet to emerge as a consistent producer through 6 NFL seasons. His 47-775-5 line with the Jaguars in 2019 stands as his best. Conley will battle with Randall Cobb, Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen for targets behind Brandin Cooks in Houston.
Texans WR Randall Cobb (foot) admits there's a "strong chance" that he doesn't play again this season. He remains in a walking boot and is reportedly considering surgery. Look for Keke Coutee to operate as Houston's slot receiver the rest of the way.
Texans WRs Randall Cobb (toe) and Kenny Stills (quad) are out for Thursday's game against the Lions. That elevates WR Keke Coutee to #3 on the depth chart and makes him an intriguing DFS flier on the 3-game Thanksgiving slate. TE Jordan Akins could also see a volume boost.
Update: Cobb has been placed on IR, so he'll miss at least 2 more games beyond Thanksgiving.
Texans WR Randall Cobb suffered a toe injury "considered significant" in Sunday's win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's set to undergo additional testing but "is set to miss games," Rapoport adds. Houston also lost WR Kenny Stills to a leg injury yesterday. That left Keke Coutee as the #3 WR.
Texans WR Brandin Cooks (quad) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's opener against the Chiefs. He returned to a limited practice on Wednesday after missing Tuesday's workout. We'll get Cooks' game status by 7 pm ET tomorrow, but fantasy owners should try to keep him out of Week 1 lineups. Cooks' absence would boost the target projections for WRs Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills.
The Texans have traded the 57th pick in the NFL Draft to the Rams for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick in 2022. Cooks joins the trio of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb atop Houston's WR depth chart and should be the best bet to lead the group in targets. His departure from the Rams leaves room for WR Josh Reynolds to capture more playing time -- barring a significant WR addition in the upcoming draft. The Rams also cut Cooks' playing time in the 2nd half of last season, preferring to get more TEs on the field.
On the same day they traded away WR DeAndre Hopkins, the Texans also agreed to a 3-year deal with WR Randall Cobb. NFL Network's James Jones reports it's a $27 million pact, including $18.75 million guaranteed. That comes a year after Cobb managed only a 1-year, $5 million contract with the Cowboys. Cobb did rebound with Dallas last season. He averaged 15.1 yards per catch after 4 straight seasons of 10.5 or less, and Pro Football Focus graded him a solid 57th among all WRs, up from 115th in 2018. But Cobb also averaged just 3.7 receptions per game as the #3 wideout and hasn't reached 56 yards per game since 2014. Cobb joins Kenny Stills and Will Fuller in a Houston WR corps with no clear leader. But they do, at least, have a dynamic young QB. Cobb will turn 30 in August.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams. Prescott never left that game but attempted just 20 passes over the final 3-and-a-half quarters. HC Jason Garrett said Wednesday that an MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder but that Prescott is "not very functional at the moment." Garrett also stopped short of guaranteeing that Prescott will play against the Eagles this weekend, although ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Prescott is expected to play. We'll keep a close eye on the situation over the next few days -- but we just moved Prescott and his WRs down the Week 16 Rankings.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) is active for tonight’s game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be at 100%. Cooper made it through just 3 snaps before aggravating the quad injury last week. Tonight’s matchup is awesome, but Cooper comes with plenty of risk in fantasy lineups. WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) is also active.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (hip, back) are expected to play against the Eagles tonight. It's a surprising turnaround for Cooper, who seemed unlikely to play most of the week until returning to a limited practice on Friday. It's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% tonight, though, and we saw last week that he's at risk of aggravating the quad injury. Consider Cooper a risk/reward WR2 for Week 7. OTs Tyron Smith (ankle) and La'El Collins (knee) are also expected to play tonight, per Schefter, so QB Dak Prescott's stock is on the rise.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) returned to practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. Cooper told reporters after Friday’s workout that he expects to play. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If he ends up active, Cooper will be a risk/reward fantasy play in a plus matchup at less than 100%. He made it through just 3 snaps before aggravating that quad injury last week. WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) is also listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game.
Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (back) remained sidelined on Thursday. Both guys are looking extremely iffy for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Their absences would leave Michael Gallup, Devin Smith, Tavon Austin and Cedrick Wilson as Dallas' top 4 WRs.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) didn't practice on Wednesday. ESPN's Todd Archer reported earlier this week that Cooper's availability for Sunday night's game against the Eagles is "in serious question." WR Randall Cobb (back) also missed Wednesday's practice after sitting out last week's loss to the Jets.
Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence opens up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.
Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. After putting in a full workout on Wednesday, he didn’t practice at all on Thursday or Friday. Cobb is averaging 5.4 targets per game, so his absence would open up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.
Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery to trim his meniscus. There's no other structural damage to the knee, so it's a pretty basic procedure. WRs Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb should see target boosts with Gallup out. WR Devin Smith, who hauled in all 3 of his targets for 74 yards and a score in the Week 2 win over Washington, is the best bet to slide into Gallup's spot.
