Texans RB Dameon Pierce (ankle) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. It's tough to imagine Pierce being reinstalled as lead back considering how awesome RB Devin Singletary has been the past two weeks. But Pierce will certainly cut into Singletary's workload. See where both guys sit in the Week 12 RB Rankings.

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.

The league has suspended Broncos S Kareem Jackson four games after a spearing hit he made on Vikings QB Joshua Dobbs on Sunday night. That, of course, follows a suspension earlier this season for three illegal hits in separate games. Jackson got his previous suspension reduced to two games on appeal and has appealed this one as well. It would seem another punishment for the same crime should knock Jackson out for longer. We'll see what happens, though. Jackson didn't get flagged for the hit during the game, which may or may not affect this ruling. Any time Jackson misses should elevate P.J. Locke to the starting role. Locke missed Sunday night's game with an ankle injury that knocked him out of Week 10 early. Delarrin Turner-Yell would seem to be the next guy up if Locke remains out for Week 12.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs caught just four balls for 27 scoreless yards in the Week 11 win over the Jets. And it came on a day when QB Josh Allen racked up 275 yards and three TDs passing. A talented Jets secondary clearly made it a point to take Diggs away. New York entered this one ranked first in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs, so Diggs was not the first elite WR to struggle against this defense. It was Diggs' second straight disappointing outing, following a 3-34-0 line against CB Patrick Surtain and the Broncos in Week 10. There's no reason to worry about Diggs going forward, though. In fact, Allen and the passing game looking so good against a tough Jets defense today is encouraging for Diggs' fantasy value the rest of the way. Week 12 brings a prime bounce-back spot against the Eagles' 31st-ranked WR defense.

Texans WR Tank Dell (8-149-1) had the big game in the Week 11 win over the Cardinals. WR Nico Collins was fine, catching seven balls for 65 scoreless yards. But he actually out-targeted Dell 11 to 10. Collins' 11 targets led the team and were a big 30% of QB C.J. Stroud's total. More big games are coming for Collins with a big role in a red-hot passing game. Consider making a trade offer for him this week. His remaining schedule includes two tough draws vs. the Jets and Browns but three positive matchups against the Jaguars and Titans twice.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud tossed three INTs vs. the Cardinals on Sunday. The first and third were bad decisions and misthrown balls; the second probably should have been caught by WR Robert Woods. But Stroud still led the Texans to a win. And he still delivered lots of fantasy points, racking up 336 yards with TDs to TE Dalton Schultz and WR Tank Dell. Stroud completed a sterling 73% of his passes and averaged 9.1 yards per attempt. He's on a ridiculously productive run, averaging 387 yards and 2.7 TDs over his last three games. It's worth noting that all three of those games have come against defenses ranked in the bottom half of the league in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. Stroud gets two more slightly positive matchups the next two weeks vs. the Jaguars and Broncos that will keep him safely inside QB1 territory. The rookie will face tough tests in Week 14 vs. the Jets and Week 16 vs. the Browns. It'd be wise to at least line up potential alternatives for those two weeks -- although Stroud is playing so well that he won't be a must-bench in those matchups.

Texans Edge Will Anderson Jr. (knee) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. Use him as planned for IDP lineups.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Cardinals today. Schefter adds that, "the Texans want to work him out pregame before making any decisions." We'll get Houston's inactives around 11:30 am ET, but Brown should be on fantasy benches for now.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and should play a full-time role this weekend vs. the Cardinals’ 19th-ranked WR defense.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He didn’t practice all week, though, and insider Aaron Wilson said Friday that Brown won’t play this weekend. He should be on fantasy benches. Brown’s absence will keep Robert Woods in the No. 3 WR role, behind Tank Dell and Nico Collins.

Texans RB Dameon Pierce (ankle) is out for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, potentially setting him up for a Week 12 return. RB Devin Singletary should again be in a workhorse role on Sunday after racking up 30 carries and two targets on an 81% snap rate last week. He’s a rock-solid RB2 vs. Arizona’s 29th-ranked RB defense.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's now seemingly in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if Brown gets on the practice field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He said afterward that he "felt great" and will play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. Collins ranks 15th among WRs in PPR points per game and will belong back in fantasy lineups if he's active on Sunday.

Texans RB Dameon Pierce (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. At this point, he seems unlikely to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. That'd mean another big workload for RB Devin Singletary, who carried a whopping 30 times last week.

Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He seemed to make it out of last weekend's game fine, so this might be more of a rest day for a guy with 13 catches over the last two games. Check back tomorrow for another update on Brown.

Texans WR Noah Brown followed his 6-153-1 Week 9 line with a 172-yard effort in the win over the Bengals. Brown ranked second on the Texans with eight targets (20.5% share) and led the team with seven catches. We still need to see what this WR corps looks like with a healthy Robert Woods and Nico Collins, but it’s tough to imagine Brown disappearing. He's easily out-played Woods, who finished Week 10 with one catch for 15 yards. Brown remains available in 65% of Sleeper leagues. He deserves to be rostered in at least all leagues of 12+ teams at this point. next up is Arizona's 21st-ranked WR defense.

Texans WR Robert Woods (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He was a full participant in Friday's practice, so the foot shouldn’t be a major issue. Woods’ return is good timing with WR Nico Collins out with his calf injury. Woods will join Tank Dell and Noah Brown as Houston’s top three WRs. See where they all sit in the Week 10 WR Rankings.

The Texans have activated CB Derek Stingley Jr. from IR. He has been out since Week 2 with a hamstring injury but appears ready to play today against the Bengals. It's tough to know how close to full playing time he'll get in his first game back from such a long layoff. He also hasn't had much chance to show us if he'll be an impactful IDP option. The 2022 first-round pick has appeared in just 11 NFL games to date. His return can only help the Houston defense. But we'll be watching to see whether he's worth individual fantasy attention.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (back) is not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice -- and then was limited again on Saturday. But he's evidently in no danger of missing Monday night's game vs. the Broncos. Diggs should stay locked into fantasy lineups.
