Kenny Stills Fantasy Football News 2019

11:12am EST 12/8/19

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Broncos. That leaves Kenny Stills as Houston’s #2 WR. He’s averaged 5.3 targets, 3.8 catches and 51.5 yards in the 4 games Fuller has missed all or most of this season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Will Fuller isn't expected to play today against the Broncos. Fuller is nursing a recurring hamstring injury that rendered him questionable for the game. If he sits, WR Kenny Stills would likely see more playing time and spend more of it on the outside. That grows his upside for a matchup that should find Denver's clear top corner, Chris Harris, shadowing DeAndre Hopkins all day. The Broncos' other outside CB, Isaac Yiadom, grades out as easily the poorest of the team's top 3 in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. He was limited in practice all week, so he should have a good chance to return for Thursday night’s game against the Colts. Kenny Stills will again serve as Houston’s #2 WR today.

The Texans have downgraded WR Will Fuller (hamstring) to out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. That helps Kenny Stills’ outlook a bit, but he hasn’t seen huge volume without Fuller and still faces a tough matchup for WR scoring

Texans WR Will Fuller has a "rather significant hamstring pull" and is expected to miss "several weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Houston has a Week 10 bye, so plan on Week 11 being the earliest we'll see Fuller back. His absence leaves Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee as the Texans' #2 and #3 WRs. With Fuller exiting early in yesterday's loss to the Colts, Stills played 94% of the offensive snaps and Coutee 69%. Stills is the preferred fantasy play while Fuller is out, but Coutee could also provide WR3 value.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Colts after missing the previous 2 weeks. It’s a boost to QB Deshaun Watson’s outlook, but Stills would be a desperation Week 7 fantasy play. His return also figures to cut into WR Keke Coutee’s playing time.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday, so he's seemingly on track to return for this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd take WR Keke Coutee out of fantasy lineup consideration.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That again leaves Keke Coutee as Houston’s clear #3 WR — although it’s worth noting that he played only 44% of the offensive snaps with Stills out last week.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is not expected to play today against the Chiefs, according to ESPN's Diana Russini. Stills is officially questionable after putting in limited practices for the 2nd straight week. Stills' absence would seem to help WR Keke Coutee, but the slot man actually played less (44%) with Stills out last Sunday than he did the week before (57%), when Stills left early. Coutee's a low-end fantasy option at best.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs, according to HC Bill O'Brien. Stills was in the same boat last week before ending up inactive. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but Stills shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans. His absence would make WR Keke Coutee a viable flier -- just note that he played only 44% of Houston's offensive snaps last week.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. That makes WR Keke Coutee an intriguing fantasy flier.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR "is viewed as unlikely to play" today against the Falcons. Stills put in limited practices all week on a bad ankle and hamstring. His absence would deliver some sleeper upside to WR Keke Coutee, especially as a cheap DFS option.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring, ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week. We'll get Stills' official status by noon ET on Sunday, but we'd avoid him in fantasy lineups at less than 100%. Stills' absence would turn WR Keke Coutee into an intriguing fantasy flier.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring, ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. We're frankly surprised he did anything at all after pulling up lame with a hamstring injury last week. Stills at least has a shot to play against the Falcons on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Texans WR Kenny Stills suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Panthers and is officially questionable to return. Stills' absence leaves Keke Coutee as Houston's #3 WR.

The Dolphins are trading WR Kenny Stills and LT Laremy Tunsil to the Texans for a "huge package of picks including a first-rounder," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tunsil's arrival obviously helps Texans QB Deshaun Watson, though we liked the Houston passer even with a weak O-line. Stills' arrival is interesting. He obviously joins a much better offense. But does his acquisition point to the team being worried about Keke Coutee's sprained ankle? Or is Stills just a strong 4th wideout? We'll see about that. Back in Miami, meanwhile, the path just got a little clearer for standout rookie WR Preston Williams. He's interesting as an end-of-draft stash and should clearly be owned in all dynasty leagues.

Update: NFL Network reports that Miami is getting a pair of 1st-round picks and a 2nd-rounder.

The Dolphins have signed WR Allen Hurns to a 1-year deal worth up to $3 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Recently cut by the Cowboys, Hurns is reportedly recovered from the dislocated ankle and broken leg he suffered during last year's playoffs. The 27-year-old has totaled just 1,256 yards over the past 3 seasons after that huge 1,031-yard, 10-TD 2015 campaign. Hurns should at least slide in as Miami's #4 WR and could push Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson for snaps. It'll be a situation to keep an eye on over the next month.

The Dolphins have released WR Danny Amendola. The 33-year-old caught 59 balls for 575 yards and 1 TD in his lone season in Miami. Amendola is still a reliable depth guy, but his days as a fantasy asset are over. With WR DeVante Parker also expected to be let go, the Fins are down to Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant atop the depth chart. We'll see what they add over the next few months.
