Date: Team: Pos:

The Texans D/ST will be playing without defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) in Week 13.

Clowney was ruled out on Saturday due to nagging wrist and elbow issues and did not make the trip to Green Bay with the Texans. Losing Clowney, who has three sacks and 12 tackles for losses in 2016, is a significant hit to the Houston defense preparing to face QB Aaron Rodgers. The Texans D/ST is not an advisable fantasy start on the road at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
Dec 3 - 6:02 PM

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) was downgraded to out for Week 13 against the Packers.

Clowney was originally listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis all week, but it looks like he did not even travel with the team to Green Bay. Already without J.J. Watt, losing Clowney is a big blow to the Texans defense, especially with Aaron Rodgers on the other side.
Dec 3 - 1:39 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Miller has been dealing with lots of minor nicks and bruises, but will be fine for Sunday's game against the Packers. Still seeing tons of volume, Miller is on the RB1/2 borderline.
Dec 1 - 7:30 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.
Dec 1 - 7:30 PM

Alfred Blue (calf) returned to practice on Thursday.

He was "limited." Blue sat out the past two games with a calf injury. Coach Bill O'Brien expects him to return against the Packers. If he does, Blue will only be a handcuff for workhorse Lamar Miller.
Dec 1 - 3:07 PM

Alfred Blue (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Blue has been sidelined the past two weeks with a calf injury, and he does not look on track to return this week. Akeem Hunt will continue to back up Lamar Miller.
Dec 1 - 11:50 AM

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.
Nov 30 - 4:14 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Miller appeared to tweak his ankle late in Sunday's loss to San Diego but his presence at practice suggests he'll be good to for Week 13. The Packers have been one of the better run defenses in the league this year but Miller should see enough work to warrant RB1 consideration on Sunday.
Nov 30 - 4:10 PM

Brock Osweiler has completed just 26 percent of his passes thrown 15 or more yards downfield.

That is the lowest completion rate among qualified quarterback according to ESPN Stats & Information. Osweiler also leads the league with eight interceptions downfield including three in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Struggling with his decision making and unable to consistently put the ball on target, Osweiler is holding the offense hostage. If he struggles again this week against the Packers, coach Bill O'Brien will have to seriously consider giving Tom Savage a chance.

Will Fuller will return punts Week 13 against the Packers.

With Tyler Ervin (rib) sidelined, Fuller took over as the primary punt returner against the Chargers. The role both suggests he is finally fully healthy and gives him a boost in return yardage leagues. Fuller did not drop four passes for 60 yards against San Diego, and he is a decent upside play in a great matchup with the Packers this week.
Nov 29 - 10:19 AM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday he expects Lamar Miller to be "fine" after Miller limped off the field with an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Miller has battled an ankle injury since before the Texans' bye week. He appeared to potentially aggravate it late in Sunday's game, but it sounds like he'll be ready to go for Week 13 against the Packers. Nevertheless, early-career concerns about Miller's ability to handle heavy workloads have continued into his first season as a true bellcow back. Although Miller has not missed any games, he has frequently battled nicks and bruises and he isn't hitting many big plays. Miller's decision to add weight in the offseason was not the answer.
Nov 28 - 3:54 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he will not bench Brock Osweiler.

"No," O'Brien flatly said when asked about starting backup Tom Savage. "We're going to come in here tomorrow, we're going to correct mistakes, and move on to Green Bay." Osweiler threw three interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Chargers and continues to hold the offense back with his inability to consistently make the correct decision and put the ball on target. The Texans are still a half-game up in the division, but they are in real danger of falling out of the playoff picture. If Brock struggles again next week against the Packers, O'Brien could be forced to make a change.

Nov 27 - 6:45 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.
Nov 27 - 5:40 PM

Braxton Miller caught 1-of-3 targets for 12 yards and rushed once for one yard Week 12 against the Chargers.

With Will Fuller looking healthy, Miller settled back in as a tertiary option in the passing game. He did get a carry while lined up as a running back from the nine-yard line, but he was stuffed. Miller does not have fantasy value outside of Dynasty leagues.
Nov 27 - 5:35 PM

Will Fuller did not drop 4-of-6 targets for 60 yards Week 12 against the Chargers.

Finally looking healthy, Fuller had something of a bounce-back game, recording more than 25 yards for the first time since Week 4. His biggest play was a 33-yard bomb down the right sideline in the second, and he did not drop another good gain down the left sideline later in the quarter. Fuller theoretically has a good matchup next week against the Packers, but he is tough to trust as anything more than a dart-throw WR4 with Brock Osweiler under center.
