Shark Bites

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 RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. He’s reportedly aiming for a Week 15 return. DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas will again serve as Houston’s top 2 WRs today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Keke Coutee expects to sit out today's game against the Colts to rest his injured hamstring. "Only a great workout pregame would change that," according to Rapoport. Coutee's absence would raise the target floor for Texans WR Demaryius Thomas.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. HC Bill O’Brien said Friday that Coutee is “trending upward” but suggested that he’ll be a game-time decision. We’ll get the rookie’s official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he’ll be a risky fantasy play if active.

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.

The Texans on Tuesday activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He had been on it since summer, while working back from last November's torn Achilles' tendon. It's hard to envision Foreman playing a big role in fantasy lineups over the final 3 weeks of most seasons, but he's at least worth an add as a handcuff to Lamar Miller. Houston would have little reason to bring Foreman back to the active roster at all unless it planned to give him a decent role.

Texans DE J.J. Watt (knee) is active for today’s game against the Browns, as expected. Keep him locked into IDP lineups.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Browns. DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas will dominate targets.

Texans WR Keke Coutee will be a game-time decision today against the Browns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Coutee put in limited practices all week after suffering his latest hamstring re-injury. Let the GTD status point to his risk level as you decide whether to use him.

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 WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Browns, HC Bill O’Brien said. Coutee has been battling this hamstring issue all season and was unable to make it through last week’s game. He’s impossible to trust in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Keke Coutee left Monday night's win over the Titans early with another hamstring injury. It's the same issue that already cost him games 2 other times this season. The Houston Chronicle reports that the latest recurrence isn't expected to cost Coutee any further time, though. For his part, the player said: "I'm feeling good. We'll have to see where we go from here." We'll watch Coutee's practice participation this week.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman still isn't ready to return from last year's Achilles injury. "Better, not all the way back yet," HC Bill O'Brien said of Foreman on Tuesday. "I think he feels good. We've got a little more time on that decision." With RB Lamar Miller rolling, Houston has no reason to rush Foreman back. You're better off stashing a handcuff like Malcolm Brown, Spencer Ware or Rod Smith than Foreman.

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 Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. HC Bill O’Brien labeled his rookie a game-time decision. We’ll get Coutee’s official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he’ll be a risky fantasy play if active.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited all week prior to sitting out Houston's last game, so this doesn't tell us much. We'll see if Coutee is able to get in a full workout on Thursday and/or Friday.

The Texans have activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He's 5 days from being a full year removed from that torn Achilles. Houston now has 21 days to either activate Foreman to the roster or stick him on IR. We'll keep an eye on him, but we'd guess Week 12 is the earliest he'd play. And it'd be at least another week before he'd possibly be a fantasy option. Foreman is only worth stashing in deep leagues.

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.
