Texans TE Ryan Griffin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with an illness. We'll look for more details on what's ailing him. Griffin's absence leaves Houston with rookie TEs Jordan Thomas and Jordan Akins. Neither is a fantasy option.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He sat out Thursday's practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Hopkins has a tough draw against the Jaguars this weekend, but remains a top 10 WR in our rankings. He scored in both games vs. Jacksonville last year.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) did not practice on Thursday. He's been limited in almost every practice this season, but this is his first "DNP." We'll get another update on Hopkins' status tomorrow.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that he doesn't expect RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) to be activated from the PUP list this week. "I don't think he's quite ready," O'Brien said. The coach said 10 days ago that Foreman was on track to return in "a few weeks," so we're still expecting to see him sooner than later. He remains worth stashing on benches in most fantasy leagues.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He remains locked in as a strong QB1.

The Texans expect QB Deshaun Watson to start today against the Bills, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Watson turned up questionable on the final injury report with a chest issue, but he should be good to go for fantasy football lineups.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He figures to form a committee backfield with Alfred Blue against the Bills on Sunday, making both guys just RB3 or flex options.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. He’s fully expected to play, and we’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) put in a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll return for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller figures to form a committee with Alfred Blue, making both guys just RB3/Flex plays.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all early in the week puts him on track to start Sunday's game against the Bills.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson is dealing with a chest injury, according to insider Aaron Wilson. Watson took some big shots in Sunday night's OT win over the Cowboys. But he never left that one and is considered "day-to-day" now. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but Watson should be fine for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that RB Lamar Miller (chest) is expected back for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller was active as an emergency option only last night and didn't end up playing. He might return to a committee backfield with Alfred Blue -- and will also need to contend with D'Onta Foreman's eventual return.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) is "not likely to play" against the Cowboys tonight, despite being active, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It sounds like Miller is dressed as an emergency option only. He should not be in fantasy lineups. Alfred Blue will carry the load in Houston's backfield, making him a volume-based fantasy play.

6:10pm EDT 10/7/18

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against the Cowboys. The rookie was limited in practice all week, so consider him a risky fantasy play here — albeit with the upside we saw last Sunday.

6:10pm EDT 10/7/18

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against the Cowboys. There’s some risk of an aggravation, but Fuller is worth getting into fantasy lineups if you’ve been waiting on him.

6:10pm EDT 10/7/18

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) is active for tonight’s game against the Cowboys. It’s a surprise after reports this morning had him likely to sit. At less than 100%, Miller’s floor is lower than usual tonight.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Texans expect to have WRs Will Fuller and Keke Coutee in the lineup Sunday night against the Cowboys. He added, however, that each player will need to test his bothersome hamstring in pregame. Fuller and Coutee carry "questionable" tags and clearly some risk into the game. If you plan to wait on either guy, try to have an insurance option available from Dallas, New Orleans or Washington.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Texans are "pessimistic" about RB Lamar Miller's chances of playing Sunday night against the Cowboys. He's officially questionable with a chest injury. Alfred Blue would start if Miller's out.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. We've heard nothing to suggest that Coutee is in danger of missing this one, but it's worth noting that he missed the first 3 games of the season with a hamstring issue. For what it's worth, Coutee was limited in practice all last week but wasn't listed on the final injury report. We'll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week but has seemed optimistic about his availability. The late kickoff complicates the situation for fantasy owners, though. We'll look for an update on Fuller Sunday morning.
