NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Lamar Miller's ankle injury isn't serious.

Miller was sidelined the entire second half of Saturday's win, but it sounds like he's avoided a high-ankle sprain. There's a chance he plays next week without missing any time. With Miller at less than 100 percent, the Texans may look to activate D'Onta Foreman in Week 16.

Ryan Griffin somehow totaled -1 yards against the Jets in Week 15.

Griffin's sudden outburst (5/80) in Week 14 was clearly just a one-week case of DeAndre Hopkins being bracketed against Indy's double-coverage scheme. He's not a streaming option against the Eagles.
Dec 15 - 9:24 PM

Alfred Blue rushed nine times for six whole yards in the Texans' Week 15 comeback win over the Jets.

Lamar Miller (3/8) exited in the second quarter and didn't return. Even so, Blue faceplanted for a whopping six yards in mop-up duty. It's the end of the line for Blue as the Texans will inevitably be forced to activate D'Onta Foreman in the very near future. Blue would only be usable if Miller is ruled out and Foreman stays scratched against the Eagles next week.
Dec 15 - 9:21 PM

Demaryius Thomas hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 59 yards in the Texans' Week 15 win over the Jets.

A majority of his yardage came on the team's game-winning fourth-quarter drive as Thomas brought down a fireball next to the sticks then spun upfield and took off for 20 yards. Although he continues to be flex-viable sans Keke Coutee (hamstring, out), Thomas has the potential to post a complete dud on any given week. If Coutee is back in Week 16, downgrade Thomas.

Lamar Miller (ankle) didn't return in Week 15 against the Jets.

Oddly enough, the running back was on the sideline for the entire second half but didn't see a single carry after initially exiting. Alfred Blue did nothing to ensure reps beyond this week, rushing nine times for six yards. Although Miller's status is currently unclear, it's possible the Texans finally activate D'Onta Foreman in Week 16 just to add another dimension to their offense.
Dec 15 - 8:42 PM

Deshaun Watson completed 22-of-28 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 15 comeback win over the Jets.

Watson's line is even more impressive when you account for the six sacks he took on constant pressure throughout the day, inevitably making him the first quarterback to get sacked 50 times this season. Even so, he tacked on 26 yards with his legs prior to engineering his fifth fourth-quarter/overtime game-winning drive this season. Without Keke Coutee (hamstring), both of Watson's touchdown throws went directly to (who else?) DeAndre Hopkins. In spite of low volume, Watson will be a top-five play against Philadelphia's swiss-cheese secondary in Week 16.
Dec 15 - 8:04 PM

DeAndre Hopkins hauled in 10-of-11 targets for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 15 victory over the Jets.

Hopkins continued soaring as Houston's primary receiving threat, creating separation from Darryl Roberts (who appeared lost on the play) for his first score of the afternoon. His second came on a dazzling catch that only he often makes seem rudimentary as Hopkins stretched to his far back shoulder for a 14-yard touchdown against Morris Claiborne's blanket coverage. In four games without Will Fuller (torn ACL, IR) and Keke Coutee (hamstring) since Week 9, Hopkins has seen target totals of 12, 12, 10, and 11. He finds himself in another eruption spot against the Eagles' Lincoln Logs-secondary in Week 16.
Dec 15 - 7:44 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) is questionable to return for Week 15 against the Jets.

Miller had his ankle rolled up on following a first quarter carry. He had three carries for eight yards before leaving.
Dec 15 - 5:14 PM

D'Onta Foreman is inactive for Week 15 against the Jets.

Foreman is still getting back to playing shape after missing over a year with a torn Achilles. The rest of Houston's inactives are WR Keke Coutee, WR Vyncint Smith, CB Deante Burton, OT Roderick Johnson, DE Carlos Watkins, and DE Joel Heath.
Dec 15 - 3:09 PM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) won't play in Week 15 against the Jets.

Coutee was downgraded mid-week and won't travel with the team. DeAndre Hopkins has played three games without Will Fuller (torn ACL, IR) and Coutee since Week 9, amassing an exquisite team-high 37% target share in those contests. Hopkins is the only matchup-proof option worth playing in Houston's low-volume passing game.
Dec 14 - 11:26 AM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) is questionable for Week 15 against the Jets.

What else is new? Coutee was a limited participant at all three practices this week. We're expecting him to suit up Saturday in East Rutherford, though he won't be an enticing fantasy option.
Dec 13 - 3:00 PM

Texans designated CB Kayvon Webster (quad, IR) to return.

It opens a three-week practice window for Webster to be added to the active roster. Webster will give the Texans some secondary depth when he returns.
Dec 12 - 6:30 PM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

The rookie slot man is aiming to return Saturday against the Jets after sitting out the last two games with a nagging hamstring injury. Houston could sure use a healthy body in the receiving corps. The Texans were so thin at that position last week that backup quarterback Joe Webb actually saw 32 snaps at wide receiver.
Dec 12 - 5:38 PM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said that Coutee is "trending toward being able to play" and Tuesday's practice status confirms his statement. With DeAndre Hopkins and to a lesser degree Demaryius Thomas hogging most of the team's targets, Coutee shouldn't be counted on in Saturday's road contest against the Jets.
Dec 11 - 6:37 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Keke Coutee (hamstring) is "trending toward being able to play."

Coutee has been sidelined since aggravating his hamstring injury against the Titans. Even if he is active, he is too big an injury risk and does not have a certain enough target share to trust in fantasy lineups this weekend.
