Shark Bites

Texans HC Demeco Ryan expects WR Tank Dell (leg) to be ready for the offseason program. Dell fractured a fibula in early December, but the injury shouldn't be an issue for his 2024 fantasy value. He, of course, was excellent before going down, finishing 12th among WRs in PPR points per game as a rookie. Dell returns to the same offense (OC Bobby Slowik) with the same QB (C.J. Stroud) this year. See where Dell sits in our early 2024 fantasy football WR rankings.

Texans WR Tank Dell expects to be able to participate in the team's offseason program, according to insider Aaron Wilson. Dell's rookie season ended with a fractured fibula in early December, but the injury shouldn't be an issue for his 2024 fantasy value. Dell was brilliant before that injury, ranking 12th among WRs in PPR points per game. His 2.22 yards per route run ranked 16th among 80 qualifying WRs and third among 14 qualifying rookie WRs. Dell sits 20th in our initial PPR WR Rankings.

Texans WR Tank Dell underwent surgery on his fractured fibula on Monday and will miss the rest of the season, HC Demeco Ryans said. Ryans added that Dell should be ready for the start of the offseason program, so this injury shouldn't impact his 2024 fantasy outlook. Dell averaged 8.4 targets, 5.1 catches, 77.3 yards, and 0.9 TDs in eight games with a snap rate north of 50%. His 2.24 yards per route run ranks 15th among 69 WRs with 40+ targets -- and third among 12 rookie WRs with 40+ targets. Tied to QB C.J. Stroud, Dell looks like a WR2 target in 2024 fantasy drafts and a top-25 dynasty WR.

Texans WR Tank Dell has been diagnosed with a fractured fibula and will be placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dell will miss at least four games and is likely done for the regular season. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for his return. Dell's injury is a hit to QB C.J. Stroud's fantasy value but leaves behind a lot of opportunity for Houston's other pass catchers. Nico Collins will be the clear No. 1 the rest of the way, with WRs Noah Brown, Robert Woods, and John Metchie behind him. We'll have more on those guys in this week's waiver wire article.

Texans WR Tank Dell's left ankle got rolled up on in the first quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He had to be carted back to the locker room. It's safe to assume his day is over. Let's hope the rookie is able to play again this season.

Texans WR Tank Dell (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Broncos. He got in two limited practices to close the week and never seemed in danger of missing this one. Dell is fine to keep in fantasy lineups.
