James a true game-time decision

It sounds like Chargers S Derwin James will carry plenty of risk as an IDP option today even if he's active against the Texans. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that James is a game-time decision. "While he has progressed as well as hoped, the true test will be in the workout," Rapoport says. James played through his hamstring injury last Thursday night against the Chiefs but made it through just 39% of the defensive snaps before leaving. He then managed just 1 limited practice Friday. James remains in starter territory in our Week 16 IDP rankings, but we have moved him down a few spots. Consider, too, the possibility of the Chargers jumping out to a big lead on Houston and then pulling James early to rest his hamstring.
