Texans WR Tank Dell (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Saints. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous two days. Dell is still a long shot to be cleared by Sunday, but we’ll keep you updated on his status.

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 TE Dalton Schultz led the team with 10 targets, seven catches, and 65 yards in the Week 5 loss to the Falcons. He also scored the team's only TD, breaking loose from 18 yards out with under two minutes left in the fourth quarter. It was easily the best game of the season for Schultz, who had totaled just 10 catches on 17 targets through the first four games. Houston lost WRs Tank Dell (concussion) and Robert Woods (ribs) in Atlanta, though. If those guys miss more time, Schultz will have an opportunity to soak up more targets. The bad news is that he gets a tough Week 6 matchup vs. a Saints defense that entered this week ranked fifth in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon recorded 25 carries for 81 rushing yards in Week 5’s win vs. the Cardinals. The veteran also added 4 catches on as many targets for 13 receiving yards in the contest. Through five games, Mixon holds an obscenely high 87% opportunity share of the Bengals’ RB touches. It’s insane how much involvement he sees on a weekly basis. He’ll be right back to his typical workhorse role again in Week 6 vs. the Seahawks.

Texans RB Dameon Pierce totaled 82 scoreless yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. More importantly, he dominated backfield work. Pierce handled all 20 RB carries and got one of two RB targets. He now has just 12 targets through five games. But Pierce is up to 84 carries, including 44 over the last two weeks. RB Devin Singletary has just seven carries over the last two games. Houston's offense struggled for most of the game in Atlanta, but this remains an ascending unit that just got starting OTs Laremy Tunsil and Tytus Howard back. With Pierce looking like a borderline workhorse, he's a nice trade target heading into Week 6.

Texans WR Tank Dell has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Falcons with a concussion. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week. The vast majority of concussed players have not been cleared for the following week this season. The Texans have a Week 7 bye.

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.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs posted a team-leading 121 receiving yards with 8 catches on 11 targets and 1 TD in Week 5 vs. the Jaguars. Teammate Gabriel Davis also posted a 100-yard game to go along with 6 catches and a TD in the contest. Though neither player produced much in the box score, it’s worth mentioning that TE Dawson Knox out-targeted rookie Dalton Kincaid 6 to 2 on Sunday. The pair is now tied with 19 targets apiece this year, but the split in work makes it difficult to trust either moving forward. We’ll get another look at the Bills in Week 6 vs. the Giants.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud completed 16 of 30 passes for 306 yards and 2 TDs in a Week 4 win over Pittsburgh. Despite continuing to play without multiple O-linemen, Stroud delivered several dimes while going without a turnover. Two of his scores went to Nico Collins, with the other going to Dalton Schultz. Stroud has now hit 280+ yards in three straight. The rookie enters a neutral matchup at Atlanta in Week 5.

Texans RB Dameon Pierce gained 81 yards on 24 attempts in Week 4. Houston gained an early lead on Pittsburgh and never looked back, which helped Pierce see his biggest workload since Week 9 of 2022. He encountered bad luck when a five-yard TD was overturned by penalty, but this outing was still encouraging. Backup RB Devin Singletary mixed in for only 7 carries, while C.J. Stroud continued to impress. Pierce should remain busy for a Week 5 date at Atlanta.

Texans WR Nico Collins had his way with the Pittsburgh secondary in Week 4, tallying 7-168-2. Collins scored once at the goal line; once from deep on a play that showed his length and post-catch ability. On the day, his 30% target share easily led the team. The third-year pro now has 22 catches, 428 yards, and 3 TDs through four games. He'll be in the WR2/3 mix for Sunday's matchup at Atlanta.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs tallied 3 TDs in a Week 4 win over Miami. Diggs' highlights included one scramble drill score; another on a downfield ball that turned up some horrible tackle attempts by Miami DBs. The veteran has now hit 6+ catches in four straight. Next up is a home matchup with Jacksonville.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon totaled 14 carries for 67 yards in Week 4’s loss vs. the Titans. He also had one catch for 9 yards in the game. Given the challenging nature of the matchup, we weren’t expecting much from Mixon this week. He’ll have a much softer opponent in Week 5 as the team prepares to face the Cardinals.

The Texans expect to get S Jalen Pitre (bruised lung) back at practice this week, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston. Pitre has missed the past two games after suffering his injury in Week 1. We'll track his status leading up to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon compiled 65 rushing yards and 1 TD on 19 carries in Week 3’s win vs. the Rams. He also caught 1 of 2 targets for 5 yards as a receiver. Mixon once again utterly dominated the backfield workshare. Backup Trayveon Williams only saw 3 touch opportunities to Mixon’s 21. We expect another bell-cow workload for the veteran again in Week 4 vs. the Titans.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs went off for 8 catches and 111 yards against Washington. His 37.5% target share easily led the team, while Diggs is now averaging 8-93 through three games. It looked like the veteran picked up a left hand/wrist injury at one point, but he returned quickly and appeared 100%. Diggs should continue rolling in Week 4 (home vs. Miami).

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 RB Dameon Pierce found paydirt in Week 3 vs. the Jaguars with 14 carries for 31 yards and 1 rushing TD. The second-year back ceded a concerning amount of work to teammate Devin Singletary (9 carries, 41 yards), however. The big thing Pierce had going for him entering the contest was his 61.5% workshare of the Texans' RB touch opportunities. The narrowing of that split between himself and Singletary should raise an eyebrow ahead of their next matchup vs. the Steelers in Week 4.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud tallied 20 completions on 30 attempts for 280 and 2 TDs in Week 3’s surprise victory over the Jaguars. The rookie signal-caller is starting to heat up, and it seems fairly evident that the Houston offense is committed to throwing the ball. This is a team that held a lead throughout the entire contest and still recorded 30 pass attempts. At this rate of volume, Stroud may be sneaking his way up the list for streaming considerations in 1QB leagues. We’ll see what this bunch can accomplish next week in a tough test against the Steelers.
