Houston headed to Indy | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

ESPN's Adam Schefer reports that the Colts have agreed to a 2-year, $24 million deal with OLB Justin Houston. He joins a defense that couldn't get much going opposite Jabaal Sheard on the edge in 2018. Houston has missed 4+ games in 3 of the past 4 seasons and turned 30 in January. But he also racked up 18.5 sacks over the past 2 seasons and has averaged 0.85 sacks per contest since 2012, his 2nd year in the league. There's at least matchup-starter potential for Houston in pressure-friendly IDP leagues. His value could get a major boost, however, if the move nets Houston DE/DL eligibility

Recent Shark Bites

Colts DE Justin Houston (hip) and DL Denico Autry (ankle, knee) are active for today’s game against the Bengals. Each had an odd practice week. Houston sat out Wednesday and Friday, with a limited practice in between. Autry missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned to a full Friday workout. They face a Cincinnati offense that has allowed the league’s most sacks. That upside makes Houston and Autry worth the risk for IDP lineups … at their appropriate levels. Check our updated Week 6 DL rankings.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He missed practice Thursday and Friday with a calf injury and doesn't look like a good bet for IDP lineups this weekend. We'll update his status Sunday morning.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He suffered a calf injury in Thursday's practice that then kept him out Friday. We'll need to watch Houston's status Sunday morning. S Malik Hooker is also questionable. He returned last week after missing 3 games with a knee injury. Hooker opened this practice week on the field but then was limited Thursday and sat out Friday, again with a knee issue. He hasn't been much of an IDP option even when healthy, at least. His previous replacement, Khari Willis, looks ready to go if Hooker sits.

Colts DE Justin Houston is active for today's game against the Texans. He turned up questionable after a calf injury kept him out of practice Thursday and Friday. But there's too much upside against a Houston offense missing RT Tytus Howard to leave this guy on your IDP bench.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans with a calf injury. Houston missed the final 2 practices after beginning the week as a healthy participant. We've moved Houston down the DL rankings for the week and will update his status Sunday morning.
