Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (neck) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He's dealing with a new neck injury but managed limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
Texans CB Kareem Jackson left Sunday's loss to the Eagles early with a knee injury and did not return despite lobbying coaches to let him back into the game, according to the Houston Chronicle. HC Bill O'Brien said Monday, though, that he thinks Jackson will be able to return for next Sunday's clash with Jacksonville. We'll keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hip) is active for today's game against the Eagles. Use him as normal in your IDP lineups.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. A hip injury limited his participation for Wednesday and Thursday before an illness kept Joseph out altogether Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning. The hip is a new issue, but Joseph played 71 of 75 snaps in last Saturday's win over the Jets.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (neck) is active for today's game against the Colts after arriving with a questionable tag. There's some durability risk, but he also carries big IDP upside this week.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after leaving last week early with a neck stinger. He put in limited practices all week and is reportedly expected to play. We'll need to check his status Sunday morning, though. Joseph carries nice upside in the matchup with Indy if he seems to be a full-go. There's bound to be some durability risk, though.
Texans DE J.J. Watt (knee) is active for today’s game against the Browns, as expected. Keep him locked into IDP lineups.
Texans DE J.J. Watt is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a knee issue that limited his practice all week. It doesn't sound like Watt's in danger of missing the game, but we'll check on his status Sunday morning.
Texans LB Zach Cunningham is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington as he tries to return from the knee injury that cost him Week 9. Cunningham put in limited practices all week. We'll check his availability Sunday morning.
Texans LB Zach Cunningham is reportedly nearing a return from the knee injury that cost him Week 9, though it's not yet clear when he'll be back. "I think he's trending toward being able to play," HC Bill O'Brien said Monday, according to USA Today. “Possibly against the Redskins, but I would say definitely the following week.” Houston visits Washington this Sunday. We'll keep an eye on Cunningham as a potential Week 11 IDP option. Fantasy owners should at least expect to have him available for Week 12.
Texans OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (groin) is active for today's game against the Broncos. He entered the day questionable but looks fine for normal IDP usage in a solid pass-rushing matchup.
Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He didn't appear on the Wednesday injury report but then was limited Thursday and Friday. Clowney says he's ready to play against the Broncos, though. We'll confirm his status Sunday.
The Texans expect ILB Zach Cunningham to miss "at least a few weeks" with the knee injury that knocked him out of their Week 8 win over the Dolphins, according to the Houston Chronicle. Replacing Cunningham will reportedly include moving Brennan Scarlett and Peter Kalambayi in from OLB, along with using reserve ILBs Josh Keyes and Brian Peters. That glut of names means IDP folks shouldn't expect any 1 player to come anywhere close to Cunningham's fantasy production. Fellow ILB starter Benardrick McKinney could see an uptick in tackles while Cunningham's out. He sits comfortably in LB1 territory in our Week 9 IDP rankings.
Texans OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (back) will not play today against the Titans, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That takes 1 of the best players off the Houston defense, but Tennessee's multitude of offensive injuries -- plus the Texans' remaining talent -- still leaves plenty of fantasy upside for Week 2. Houston remains 1 of the strongest team-defense options for the week.
Update: Clowney is officially inactive.
Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus has missed about 2 weeks or workouts with a hamstring injury, as well as the team's 1st 2 exhibition contests. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team doesn't expect Mercilus to appear in the final 2 games either but does expect him to return for the regular-season opener. Over 6 seasons, Mercilus has only topped 7.5 sacks once -- when he delivered 12 in 2015. If the defense stays healthy, Mercilus will find himself in a good situation for sack upside. We'll keep an eye on the hamstring.
Houston made its 1st pick of the 2018 NFL Draft by taking S Justin Reid in the 3rd round. Some draft analysts projected Reid as a potential 1st-rounder, but ESPN's Louis Riddick pointed out a propensity to give up big plays. We don't mind that as IDP owners, as long as he can put up numbers. Texans safeties haven't done much of that in a while, though, so don't get over-excited.
Texans lead CB Johnathan Joseph (shin) is active for today's game against the Colts after entering the day questionable. His presence doesn't significantly alter the fantasy outlook for anyone on either side of the matchup.
Texans LB Brian Cushing left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning, but he shouldn't be on IDP rosters anyway. Missing further time would either push rookie Zach Cunningham or rookie Dylan Cole into the starting lineup.
Texans DE J.J. Watt said after Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars that he “messed up my finger a little bit … just busted the bone through the skin; nothing bad.” That’s gross, but it doesn’t sound like it should affect his availability or performance going forward.
