Shark Bites

Despite the return of disgruntled veteran WR Brandin Cooks, 2nd-year WR Nico Collins led the team in targets (10) and catches (5) in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Collins also played more snaps (50-41) than Cooks and ran more routes (33-26). Collins took his 5 receptions for 49 yards, ranking 3rd behind TE Jordan Akins (3-72) and WR Chris Moore (3-70). Collins did claim the team's only TD reception. Moore tied Cooks for 2nd on the team in pass routes, with Akins and WR Phillip Dorsett just 5 routes behind. Cooks will need to pick back up in that area to comfortably reside in fantasy WR3 territory going forward. To be fair, he did catch a 19-yard TD in the 4th quarter Sunday that was nullified by a holding penalty. A Week 11 matchup with the Commanders presents upside for the Houston passing game.

Recent Shark Bites

The Texans have placed WR Nico Collins on IR for his foot injury, ending his season. That should continue the elevated role for WR Chris Moore, though he's questionable for Saturday's game against the Titans with a foot injury that limited his practice all week. WR Brandin Cooks (calf) is also questionable, despite putting in full practices Wednesday and Thursday.

Texans WR Nico Collins (foot) has been ruled out for Week 16's contest vs. the Titans. His teammates, Brandin Cooks (calf) and Chris Moore (elbow), are officially listed as questionable. Cooks managed to practice in full on Wednesday and Thursday while Moore was limited all week. Both Cooks and Moore carry flex-worthy appeal should they be able to suit up. The Titans' defense is the friendliest matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed. That doesn't make the Texans' offense good all of a sudden but it does help.

Texans WR Nico Collins (foot) did not practice for the 2nd day in a row on Wednesday. Fellow wideout Chris Moore (foot) logged his 2nd straight limited practice as well. In better news, Brandin Cooks (calf) upgraded to full participation at practice. With Week 16's game vs. the Titans falling on Saturday, Thursday's practice report will be very telling about Collins' and Moore's availability. Check back tomorrow as this news evolves.

The Texans have a slew of injuries in their WR room ahead of Saturday's game vs. the Titans. Nico Collins (foot) did not practice on Tuesday, and both Brandin Cooks (calf) and Chris Moore (foot) logged limited participation. Today's reports will shed some light on their collective situations. It is difficult to project the fantasy viability of the Texans at this time, so stay tuned. We'll keep you updated.

Texans WRs Nico Collins (foot) and Brandin Cooks (calf) have been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. Cooks actually got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday; Collins was sidelined all week. Chris Moore, Phillip Dorsett and Amari Rodgers will again operate as Houston's top 3 WRs this weekend.
