Texans WR Robert Woods (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. That's worrisome with Houston coming off a bye. We'll see if Woods gets back on the field tomorrow. His absence vs. the Panthers this weekend would lock in Nico Collins, Tank Dell, and Noah Brown as the Texans' top three WRs.

Texans WR Robert Woods (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Saints. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so he should be ready for a full slate of snaps today. With WR Tank Dell out with his concussion, Woods is a viable WR4 in PPR leagues.

Texans WR Robert Woods (ribs) is expected to play vs. the Saints today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Woods quietly leads Houston with 40 targets through five games and could get a volume boost today with WR Tank Dell out. The injury adds some risk to his profile, but Woods is worth considering as a WR4 in PPR leagues.

Texans WR Robert Woods (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, which seemingly puts him on track to play. An active Woods would be in the WR4 discussion, getting a potential target boost with WR Tank Dell (concussion) out. WR Noah Brown (groin) is off the injury report and will play Sunday for the first time since Week 1.

Texans WR Robert Woods (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play vs. the Saints this weekend. We'll see how Woods is listed on the final injury report tomorrow. WR Tank Dell (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday and is a long shot to play this weekend.

Texans WR Tank Dell (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. The rookie is unlikely to play vs. the Saints this weekend. WR Robert Woods (ribs) was also out on Wednesday and is iffy for Sunday's game. Houston did get WR Noah Brown (groin) back to a full practice today. He'd join WRs John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson behind No. 1 Nico Collins if Dell and Woods are out.

Texans WR Robert Woods is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Falcons with a ribs injury. We'll update his status when we know more.

Texans rookie WR Nathaniel ‘Tank’ Dell had himself a day with a team-leading 5 catches on 7 targets for 145 yards in Week 3 vs. the Jaguars. Teammates Nico Collins and Robert Woods struggled in this contest, each recording 34 receiving yards apiece on a combined 5 catches. These results are certainly disappointing for fantasy managers. The good news, however, is that this Houston offense seems pretty darn good with QB C.J. Stroud at the helm. Despite leading the whole game, the Texans chucked the ball 30 times. That type of continued passing volume is fantastic to see for fantasy managers. This will be an exciting unit to watch next week vs. the Steelers.

Texans WR Nico Collins led the team in receiving with 7 catches, a monstrous 146 receiving yards, and a TD in Week 2 vs. the Colts. Rookie Nathaniel ‘Tank’ Dell saw the most targets (10) and racked up 7 catches for 72 yards and a TD in the contest. Robert Woods was heavily involved again, logging 6 catches for 74 yards. As long as Houston continues to play from behind on a weekly basis, there’ll be plenty of fantasy scoring opportunities for these pass-catchers. Week 3 vs. the Jaguars projects to be another game in which the Texans will have to throw a lot to keep up.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Colts today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Stroud was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday with a sore right shoulder. He's no better than a low-end QB2 in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but his availability is good news for Houston's offense.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (shoulder) was added to the injury report and limited in Friday's practice. He's listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Per insider Aaron Wilson, Stroud "didn't do much" on Friday to "rest sore right, throwing shoulder, but is expected to try to play against Colts." That doesn't sound great. Hopefully Stroud wasn't in your Week 2 fantasy plans. QB Davis Mills will start on Sunday if Stroud can't. The situation adds downside to Houston's pass-catchers.

Texans WRs Nico Collins and Robert Woods combined to draw nearly half of QB C.J. Stroud's 44 pass attempts in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Collins led the team with 11 looks, catching 6 passes for 80 yards. Woods drew 10 targets and caught 6 for 57 yards. No other Texan drew more than 4 looks. WR Tank Dell, WR Noah Brown, and RB Mike Boone tied for third with 4 apiece. Target shares in the 22%+ range would make Collins and Woods decent-to-good PPR options going forward. Each is a fine reserve option in leagues of 12+ teams.

ESPN's DJ Bien-Aime says in his final roster projection that WR Noah Brown has been running as a starter alongside Robert Woods and Nico Collins "throughout camp." He adds that "there's a chance midway through the season [Tank Dell] becomes a starter." As for second-year WR John Metchie, Bien-Aime calls him only one of the "remaining receivers." The article even mentions sixth-round rookie WR Xavier Hutchinson "sometimes" running with the starters. Metchie's comeback from leukemia is a great story no matter what. But he looks like a fantasy afterthought. Brown's name will be worth keeping in mind for DFS and the final rounds of best ball tournament drafts. But we're not expecting this offense to support multiple fantasy-starter pass catchers. Collins remains the top Texans WR in our fantasy football rankings. Woods has been a PPR value throughout draft season because he stays on the board until the very end (and often beyond). Dell is intriguing as a late-draft stash in deeper leagues.

Texans WR Robert Woods endured easily his worst NFL season in 2022. He tallied his fewest receptions per game (3.1) since he was a 2013 rookie. He posted career lows in yards per catch, yards per target, and yards per route. He earned his lowest Pro Football Focus receiving grade since 2015. But it's also worth remembering that Woods was coming off a November ACL tear. He signed a two-year deal with the Texans that includes $10 million guaranteed and a $7.6 million annual average. Woods has finished among the top 40 WRs in target share every year since he left Buffalo. That included top-30 rankings in all five Rams seasons (with highs inside the top 15). He'll compete for roles with an unproven WR corps that includes Nico Collins, John Metchie, and third-round rookie Tank Dell. Woods had already seen his average depth of target shorted in recent years (before the injury) while still running more than half his routes from outside. That could make him a nice complement to Collins, who tends to work deeper downfield. And Houston should get a QB upgrade, from Davis Mills to rookie C.J. Stroud. No one's expecting big things from Woods in 2023, but that's what makes him most interesting for best ball drafts. His ADP sits outside the top 80 among WRs, despite a path to leading Houston in targets. There's no risk -- but at least decent upside -- to mixing in some Woods late in drafts, especially in full-PPR formats. See how his spot in our 2023 fantasy football rankings compares with that ADP.

The Texans selected Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud with the second pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Stroud racked up huge numbers as a two-year starter at Ohio State: 8,123 yards (9.8 YPA), 85 TDs, and only 12 INTs. Playing alongside elite talents like Garret Wilson, Chris Olave, Marvin Harrison Jr., and Jaxon-Smith-Njigba certainly helped. Stroud still showed NFL ability, proving accurate in all areas of the field. But can he adjust to muddier pockets in the pros? And can he use his legs more often? Those answers will be vital in determining his dynasty fantasy value. For year one, though, Stroud’s unlikely to be more than a deep league spot starter. Houston’s currently rolling out Nico Collins, Robert Woods, and John Metchie at WR.

The Cowboys are getting WR Brandin Cooks from the Texans for a fifth-round pick in 2023 and a sixth-rounder in 2024, according to multiple reports. Dallas likely views Cooks as the new No. 2 WR, ahead of Michael Gallup. We wouldn't bet on him beating CeeDee Lamb in target share. Cooks is coming off a disappointing 2022 that saw his receptions per game, yards per game and catch rate fall significantly vs. his previous two Houston campaigns. He managed just a WR40 finish in PPR points per game. But we're not betting that the 29-year-old (until Sept. 25) is over the hill just yet. If the team change doesn't boost Cooks' ADP too much vs. his current low-WR4 position, he's a solid-to-good option for your best ball drafts. Cooks' arrival also helps QB Dak Prescott, who sits low in QB1 territory in best ball ADP. As for the Houston WR corps: Try not to get too excited about anyone. The Texans signed Robert Woods to a two-year deal this offseason. Nico Collins has averaged just 2.9 receptions per game through two NFL seasons. And 2022 second-round pick John Metchie is expected to debut after missing his rookie year for leukemia treatment. The whole group should at least get a new QB next month via the NFL Draft.

The Texans have signed WR Robert Woods to a two-year deal. The pact includes $10 million guaranteed and could be worth as much as $17 million, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. This signing ahead of NFL free agency opening signals that Houston either wants Woods to replace WR Brandon Cooks once he’s traded or that it prefers Woods to Nico Collins as the No. 2 receiver. Woods has been going near the end of best ball drafts, so signing anywhere helps his outlook. We’ll see what the Texans do at QB and whether they make any other WR moves before determine the veteran’s ultimate value

The Titans released WR Robert Woods, The Score's Jordan Schultz reports. It's no surprise considering Woods was set to count $14.6 million against the 2023 salary cap. 30 years old and coming off a torn ACL, Woods didn't appear to have much juice left this past season, averaging a career-low 9.9 yards per catch. He ranked 59th among 84 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades. We'll see where Woods lands, but don't expect to find him high in the 2023 fantasy football rankings.
