The Texans only dressed four wideouts, allowing them to activate 10 defensive backs. Return man Damaris Johnson got the nod over Posey, as did Keshawn Martin. Sep 9 - 8:39 AM

DeVier Posey caught four passes for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

All of Posey's grabs came in the second half from backup Case Keenum. The 2012 third-rounder is a poor bet to get on the fantasy radar this season as a backup receiver on a team that will run a lot of two-wide looks. Through three preseason games, Posey has six catches for 38 yards and one touchdown.

DeVier Posey is the leading candidate for the Texans' slot job.

Coming off a 2012 Achilles' tear, Posey had just 15 catches for 155 yards and no scores in 14 games last season. He'll improve this year, but won't get on the fantasy radar behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins on a team that wants to defend and run the ball to win. The third receiver job isn't expected to be a big one for new coach Bill O'Brien, who projects to run plenty of "12" formations.

Texans WR DeVier Posey suffered a high-ankle sprain in Houston's Week 15 loss to the Colts.

With only two weeks to go, it's likely a season-ending injury for the second-year pro. Posey was held without a catch before going down against Indy, and has just 15 grabs on the year. Posey is not a must-hold in Dynasty leagues, but he's not a must-drop, either.

DeVier Posey caught just one pass for five yards in Houston's Week 12 loss to the Jaguars.

Posey's fourth-quarter catch was his only target, while he ceded snaps to Keshawn Martin. Posey isn't on the WR5 radar for a team plumbing new weekly depths.

DeVier Posey caught three balls for 34 yards in the Texans' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

Posey has taken over as the Texans' third receiver behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Outside of Dynasty and 20-team leagues, the 2012 third-round pick out of Ohio State carries no fantasy appeal. Posey would need a Johnson or Hopkins injury to be worth consideration in standard settings.

DeVier Posey had three catches for 23 yards in Week 9 against the Colts.

He was targeted four times in the passing game. Posey has replaced Keshawn Martin as the No. 3 receiver, but doesn't have a defined role in the offense. He can continue to be ignored in fantasy leagues.

DeVier Posey caught a 42-yard pass in Houston's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

Posey's sixth catch of the season more than doubled his 2013 yardage total. There's no reason to believe his role will increase any time soon.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Friday WR DeVier Posey is at least "a few weeks away" from being a game-day contributor.

Coming off a late-season 2012 Achilles' tear, Posey was among the Texans' Week 1 inactives. He'll stay that way until he regains "confidence and what he's doing in physical shape." When Posey does return, he could overtake Keshawn Martin in three-receiver sets with Nuk Hopkins and Andre Johnson.

DeVier Posey (Achilles' tendon) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Posey should be on a snap count against the Chargers after making just one preseason appearance, but his lightning fast return (eight months) is complete. Fifth on the depth chart for now, Posey isn't a fantasy consideration.

DeVier Posey (Achilles') is expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale.

Posey is just eight months removed from his Achilles' rupture. He'll be eased in for about 12 plays as the Texans get a look at his progress. Posey will start off behind Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins, Keshawn Martin and Lestar Jean.

Texans activated WR DeVier Posey from the active/PUP list.

Posey suffered the Achilles' tear in January's playoffs. His comeback was highly impressive, and encouraging for fellow Achilles' patients like Michael Crabtree. Posey will battle for the rest of training camp for a 45-man game-day spot. His primary competition will be Keshawn Martin behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Just don't expect 2013 fantasy impact from Posey.

Coach Gary Kubiak said WR DeVier Posey (Achilles') is close to being activated from the PUP list.

It's a remarkably fast return for Posey, who blew out his heel during the playoffs. "I can almost dunk now," he said. "It's pretty amazing." A third-round pick last year, Posey had just six catches for 87 yards as a rookie.

Texans placed WR DeVier Posey (Achilles') on the active/PUP list.

Posey tore his Achilles' in the playoff loss to the Patriots, and he's just six months removed from surgery. The second-year wideout did some on-field running and agility work at minicamp practices last month, but he still has work to do before he finds his way onto the field for team drills.

Texans WR DeVier Posey (Achilles') has resumed on-field running and agility work.

Posey is rehabbing on the side field just five months after tearing his Achilles' in the Divisional Round. He's still a good bet to begin the year on the PUP list, but it's clear Posey will get on the field at some point in 2013.
