Shark Bites for Houston Texans | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Houston Texans Fantasy Football News 2020

The Texans chose DT Ross Blacklock with the 40th pick of the NFL Draft. Blacklock posted limited stats across 2 seasons at TCU, finishing with 9 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks in 2019. He missed 2018 with a torn Achilles' tendon. ESPN's Louis Riddick and Anthony McFarland believe that Blacklock brings pass-rushing upside beyond what he showed in college. He joins a D-line that just lost D.J. Reader in free agency.

Texans CBs Gareon Conley (hip) and Bradley Roby (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Broncos. So is OLB Brennan Scarlett (shoulder), who missed last Sunday's win over the Patriots. It's an upside matchup for Scarlett, who produced well in the 3 games before he sat out.

Texans OLB Brennan Scarlett (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Patriots.

Texans S Tashaun Gipson (back) is active for tonight's game against the Colts. CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) is out. Neither is much of an IDP factor.

The Texans have ruled S Justin Reid (concussion) out for Thursday night's game against the Colts. S Tashaun Gipson (back) and CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) are questionable. Gipson returned for last week's loss to Baltimore after missing the previous 2 contests. Roby has missed the past 4 games.

Texans S Justin Reid suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. The Thursday night matchup with Indianapolis makes it almost certain that Reid will miss at least a game. We'll see about Reid's status heading into Week 13. Jahleel Addae saw elevated playing time against Baltimore and would likely start in Reid's place against the Colts.

Texans DE J.J. Watt will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Raiders. Watt confirmed the season-ending injury via Twitter on Sunday night. Losing him can only hurt a Houston defense that had already proved disappointing for fantasy.

Houston starting CBs Johnathan Joseph (neck, hamstring) and Bradley Roby (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Both guys put in limited practices all week. Roby missed last week's game. Joseph played through a "questionable" tag after missing the previous game but left early with a new injury. We'll see about their status Sunday morning.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Colts. He missed last week but is back for your IDP lineups. Fellow starting CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) is inactive, however.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Texans expect CB Johnathan Joseph to play today against the Colts. That puts 1 of the season's top-scoring DBs back into play for IDP lineups. Joseph had been the league's most targeted CB in coverage before going down with his hamstring injury, according to Pro Football Focus. You'll find him in DB2 territory in our Week 7 IDP rankings.

Texans starting CBs Johnathan Joseph and Bradley Roby are questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts because of hamstring injuries. Each guy put in limited practices all week. We'll see about their statuses Sunday morning. Joseph is a solid IDP option when healthy. Roby hasn't been. The matchup will be positive for Houston passing-game pieces regardless of whether Joseph and/or Roby plays.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph missed Sunday's win over the Chiefs with a hamstring strain he suffered in practice. But the Houston Chronicle reports that he's optimistic about being ready for the Week 7 visit to Indianapolis. "That's the plan; that's the goal," Joseph said. We'll see about his practice participation this week.
