Bengals RB Joe Mixon ran for 87 yards and a TD on 16 carries (5.4 per rush) in Sunday's win over the 49ers. He added 23 yards on 3 receptions. It marked a season-high in yards per carry for Mixon and just the second time he has reached the end zone this season. The offense racked up a season-high 400 yards despite facing a defense that entered the day ranked sixth in DVOA. With Joe Burrow further removed from his calf injury and WR Tee Higgins off the injury report, this is likely the healthiest Cincinnati's offense has been in 2023. If the Bengals can continue like this, Mixon won't need to be overly efficient to deliver worthwhile fantasy scoring the rest of the way.

Sunday saw a bit of a dud from the Texans’ passing game. WR Noah Brown hauled 3 of 5 targets for a team-high 57 receiving yards in Week 8’s loss vs. the Panthers. His teammate Nico Collins led Houston pass-catchers with 4 catches but only converted those opportunities into 30 receiving yards. Nary a Texans’ receiver exceeded double-digit PPR points in the contest. We’ll hope to see better efforts in Week 9 vs. the Buccaneers.

The Texans’ backfield remained a split committee in Week 8 vs. the Panthers. RB Dameon Pierce saw 12 carries with a team-leading 46 rushing yards on Sunday, while teammate Devin Singletary received 10 carries and went 2/2 on his targets for a combined 43 total yards. We’ll have more to dissect once the snap counts from this game become available. For now, it seems managers who took a speculative flier on Singletary off the waiver wire have stumbled into a deep-league flex/bye week filler. It’s reasonable to anticipate Pierce and Singletary will see a 50/50 share again in Week 9 vs. the Buccaneers.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud completed 16 of 24 passes for 140 passing yards with 0 TDs or INTs in Week 8’s loss vs. the Panthers. Fortunately for fantasy managers, the rookie salvaged his day somewhat by recording 13 rushing yards and a TD in the contest. Still, this wasn’t a stellar performance for the Texans’ offense as a whole. Sunday marked Stroud’s second game in a row with under 200 passing yards. Hopefully, he’ll have better luck next week vs. the Buccaneers.

Texans WR Robert Woods is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his foot injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Woods is out for today's game vs. the Panthers, and it sounds like he'll also miss Week 9. His absence can't be bad news for WRs Nico Collins and Tank Dell.

Texans WR Robert Woods (foot) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. WR Tank Dell (concussion) is off the final injury report and will play. The rookie is a WR3 with upside against a burnable Carolina secondary.

Texans WR Robert Woods (foot) is not expected to play vs. the Panthers on Sunday, per insider Aaron Wilson. Hopefully you weren't hoping to use Woods in Week 8 fantasy lineups. The big impact here in on WR Tank Dell, who we were worried might not play a full slate of snaps alongside Woods and WR Noah Brown. Now that Woods is out, Nico Collins, Dell, and Brown should be locked in as Houston's top three WRs.

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 Tank Dell (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers.

The league has suspended Broncos S Kareem Jackson for four games because of his love for committing dirty hits. His latest infraction was a "forceful blow to the head/neck area" of Packers TE Luke Musgrave. He previously took similar shots at Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers and Commanders TE Logan Thomas. NFL Network reports that Jackson is appealing the suspension. Expect a quick resolution to that appeal, and we'll see if there's any adjustment to the suspension's length. P.J. Locke filled in after Jackson got ejected from the win over Green Bay. he figures to start while Jackson's out.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs hauled just 6 of 12 targets for 58 receiving yards and a TD in Week 7’s surprising loss vs. the Patriots. A star player like Diggs catching only half of his passes isn’t super ideal, but fantasy managers can’t be too upset considering he found paydirt in the contest. Buffalo’s leading pass-catcher on Sunday was rookie TE Dalton Kincaid. The first-year player finally broke out, roping in all 8 of his targets for a team-leading 75 receiving yards. He and fellow TE Dawson Knox played on a similar number of offensive snaps (43 and 45, respectively) though Kincaid out-targeted his counterpart by a margin of 5. We’ll be interested to see if this is trend continues on Thursday night’s Week 8 game vs. the Buccaneers.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs delivered a star performance in Week 6, logging 10 catches on 16 targets for 100 receiving yards vs. the Giants. Beyond him, no other Bills’ pass-catcher exceeded 3 catches or 25 receiving yards in the contest. Sunday night saw an uncharacteristically lousy performance from Buffalo, though their collective efforts were enough to pull out the victory. Next week’s divisional showdown vs. the struggling Patriots should present solid grounds for more Bills besides Diggs to deliver fantasy production.

Texans WR Nico Collins hauled 4 of 6 targets for a team-high 80 receiving yards in Week 6’s win vs. the Saints. TE Dalton Schultz also had a good game, posting 4 catches for 61 yards and a TD on Sunday. After a slow start to the season, Schultz has now recorded at least 40 receiving yards and 1 TD in three consecutive games. We won’t see the Texans again until Week 8 vs. the Panthers. Hopefully, by then, fantasy managers will have rookie WR Nathaniel ‘Tank’ Dell (concussion) back in the fold.

For the fourth time this season, Texans RB Dameon Pierce failed to exceed 40 rushing yards. The second-year back tallied 13 carries for 34 yards in Week 6 vs. the Saints and saw no involvement as a pass-catcher. His teammate Devin Singletary logged a team-high 58 rushing yards and added 1 catch on 2 targets on Sunday. The Texans are set to go on their bye week next weekend, but Pierce shouldn’t be thought of as much more than a flex option until further notice.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud completed 13 of 27 pass attempts for 199 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Week 6’s win vs. the Saints. Though the rookie posted his lowest passing yardage total this season, his 14.2 fantasy points ranked 10th among QBs entering Sunday night. Stroud has proven to be a reliable fantasy option in 2023 and is set to go on bye in Week 7. His next game comes in Week 8 vs. the Panthers.

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 Tank Dell (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Saints. The rookie gets a Week 7 bye and should be cleared to return for Week 8.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Texans WR Tank Dell (concussion) is not expected to play vs. the Saints today. He's listed as questionable but only returned to a limited practice on Friday, leaving him as a long shot to clear the protocol before kickoff. Dell gets a Week 7 bye and should be back for Week 8.

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.
