C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.
Brock Osweiler targeted Fiedorowicz in the end zone late in the first quarter, but the pass was a bit too high and bounced off his fingertips. Fiedorowicz atoned with a second-quarter score on a backfield-misdirection play that froze the Patriots’ linebackers and sprung him wide open. Fiedorowicz dropped an easy third-quarter pass underneath, hearing the footsteps of Patriots LB Elandon Roberts. 25 years old, Fiedorowicz emerged as a valued possession target in the Texans' 2016 offense. He will stay on the late-round tight end radar in 2017 fantasy drafts. Jan 15 - 12:03 AM

Date:

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 2-of-4 targets for 35 yards in the Texans' Wild Card win over the Raiders.

He did all of his work early in this one, with the Texans only completing two passes after halftime as they nursed a multi-score lead. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin have both become involved in an offense that likes to throw to its tight ends. Fiedorowicz will be worth DFS consideration next week.
Jan 7 - 8:52 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 2-of-7 targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 17 loss to the Titans.

Fiedorowicz's touchdown was delivered by BFF Brock Osweiler. With Tom Savage battling a concussion, Osweiler could be under center in the Wild Card round, keeping Fiedorowicz on the DFS radar.
Jan 1 - 5:57 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 4-of-7 targets for 42 yards in Week 16 against the Bengals.

Fiedorowicz managed a solid game outside of a wide open second-quarter drop. He looked fully healthy after missing last week with a concussion. Fiedorowicz should see 7-10 targets in Week 17 against Tennessee.

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Fiedorowicz will be back for Week 16. The Bengals have hemorrhaged fantasy points to tight ends all season, but with the Texans changing quarterbacks and Ryan Griffin in the mix, Fiedorowicz will be a mid-range TE2.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 04:23:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday.

Fiedorowicz missed Week 15, but is on track to return against the Bengals. Fiedorowicz was averaging eight targets per game over his previous three outings. He's still a back-end TE1 with Tom Savage under center.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 01:59:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Jaguars.

It means Ryan Griffin should take over as the Texans' lead tight end with UDFA Stephen Anderson mixing in behind him. The Jaguars have played excellent coverage against tight ends all year. Still, Griffin is worth a look as a volume-driven punt play in a passing game that has come to revolve around its tight ends.

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Brock Osweiler's favorite target is now looking unlikely to suit up against the Jaguars. If Fiedorowicz indeed sits, Ryan Griffin will be a plug-and-play TE2.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 01:29:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Fiedorowicz suffered the head injury in the Week 14 win over the Colts. He's likely in the league's protocol. Fiedorowicz has been one of the more reliable tight ends over the past two months. Ryan Griffin would start if he can't go.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 01:29:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz left Week 14 against the Colts with a possible concussion.

He was taken to the locker room late in the fourth quarter. Fiedorowicz had three catches for 32 yards before exiting. His status should be updated early next week.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 04:16:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 6-of-9 targets for 44 yards Week 13 against the Packers.

Fiedorowicz easily led the team with five catches at the break after catching three quick passes in the two-minute drill. He was only able to haul in one of his four opportunities after halftime, but he still led the team both in receptions and targets, although he did lose a touchdown and some targets to Ryan Griffin. The only pass catcher Osweiler can find semi-consistently, Fiedorowicz is going to be a big part of the offense the rest of the way. He will be a sure-fire TE1 next week against the Colts.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 05:04:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The only pass catcher Brock Osweiler can complete throws to will be fine for Week 13.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 07:30:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

He's been nursing a shoulder injury in recent weeks but isn't in danger of missing Sunday's game against Green Bay. Fiedorowicz has drawn at least seven targets in five of his last seven games. That's enough volume to put him in the TE1 discussion, albeit on the back end of it.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 04:14:00 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught 4-of-6 targets for 42 yards Week 12 against the Chargers.

It was a disappointing line which was actually inflated by two fourth-quarter catches, but Fiedorowicz does not deserve much of the blame. His first missed chance was an off-target bullet by Brock Osweiler with Fiedorowicz just a couple feet from the line of scrimmage, and the quarterback managed to overthrow his big tight end by at least 10 feet on a second-half interception. A big part of the passing game, Fiedorowicz should bounce back next week against the Packers.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 05:40:00 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday that C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) will play in Week 12 against the Chargers.

Emerging as Brock Osweiler's most trusted possession receiver, Fiedorowicz's consistent usage gives him reliable if low-end TE1 value week to week.
