Date: Team: Pos:

Alfred Blue (hamstring) was limited at Friday's practice.

Blue is Houston's No. 2 back with D'Onta Foreman out for the year. He'll have a change-of-pace role behind Lamar Miller if active for Monday night.
Nov 24 - 5:10 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) is not expected to play in Week 12 against Baltimore.

Fuller hasn't been cleared to practice after sitting out last week. He'll miss at least one more game and isn't a lock to return in Week 13. Bruce Ellington will continue to start opposite DeAndre Hopkins.
Nov 24 - 3:20 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) was limited at Friday's practice.

There's no concern for his Week 12 status. With Will Fuller sidelined, Hopkins should continue to see heavy targets for Monday night's matchup with Baltimore.
Nov 24 - 3:14 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Coach Bill O'Brien calls Fuller "touch and go," as it's obviously a painful injury to play through. The Texans are not practicing on Thursday. Consider Fuller doubtful for Sunday against Baltimore.
Nov 22 - 2:06 PM

Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense.

ESPN's Field Yates considers the Redskins a possible landing spot for Andre Ellington.

The Redskins have a screen-heavy offense that runs through the short pass game and are in need of a Chris Thompson replacement. Ellington could complement Samaje Perine and add depth with Byron Marshall the only other healthy back. Washington is a scheme fit for Ellington, but he could draw interest from multiple teams.
Nov 20 - 5:09 PM

Cardinals released RB Andre Ellington.

Ellington's role had been fading behind Adrian Peterson, and he was a healthy scratch last week. The Cardinals saw more upside in Bronson Hill, who was promoted from the practice squad. Playing for the veteran minimum, Ellington should resurface as a pass-down back.
Nov 20 - 4:36 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he is "unsure" if Will Fuller (ribs) will be back this week.

Fuller sat out Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals because of cracked ribs, an injury which can require several weeks to heal. Bruce Ellington will get another start if Fuller cannot return.
Nov 20 - 12:43 PM

C.J. Fiedorowicz hauled in both of his targets for 18 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Fiedorowicz now has just four catches for 28 yards total since returning from injured reserve. Until he proves a bigger part of the offense, he can be left on the waiver wire.
Nov 19 - 5:21 PM

Lamar Miller rushed 22 times for 61 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Miller struggled a bit early, but he had a great run to set up the offense at the five on the last play of the first quarter, and he converted the touchdown with a seven-yard catch a couple plays later. It was his third receiving touchdown of the season, a new career high. Miller ended up ceding work to D'Onta Foreman in the second half, but the rookie suffered what looked like a torn Achilles' and is likely out for the season. That should leave Miller as the clear lead back the rest of the way, and he will be a volume-based RB2 next week against the Ravens.
Nov 19 - 5:20 PM

Bruce Ellington hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 63 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Ellington did not do much of anything until late in the second quarter, but he came up with three catches including a 25-yarder to put Houston in position for a field goal before the half, and he made another big catch to convert a third down in the fourth quarter. It was not a huge day, but fantasy players who took a shot on Ellington will take the PPR points. Even if Will Fuller (ribs) is out again next week, Ellington is unlikely to have as much success against the Ravens.
Nov 19 - 5:14 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports D'Onta Foreman suffered a torn Achilles' Week 11 against the Cardinals.

Foreman will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but it looks like the rookie's season is over. It is a tough break for a player who suffered the injury on an explosive 34-yard touchdown, a play which gave him his best day as a pro. With Foreman out, Lamar Miller's role should be secure the rest of the way.
Nov 19 - 5:02 PM

DeAndre Hopkins hauled in 4-of-9 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Locked in a battle with Patrick Peterson all game, Hopkins was just inches away from several catches including what would have been a touchdown just before halftime. He made up for it after the break, making a contested grab for a third-down conversion, going for 34 yards on a crossing route, and getting open against Peterson for a 28-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half. That was the end of his production, but fantasy owners will take it in the tough matchup. Hopkins has another tough draw with the Ravens next week, but he will remain in the WR1 conversation.
Nov 19 - 4:57 PM

Tom Savage completed 22-of-32 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Savage started the game well, completing his first six passes for 50 yards and a nice touchdown pass on the move to Lamar Miller. The bad Savage came out after that, however, as he was strip-sacked to help set up Arizona's first score and threw an interception a couple drives later, although the pick was not really his fault. Savage got back on the right track by hitting DeAndre Hopkins for a 28-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half, and he made a great play to escape pressure and find Stephen Anderson for a 22-yard gain which set up a go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth. The Texans never relinquished the lead after that. Savage was not great on Sunday, but he did enough to keep his job another week.
Nov 19 - 4:16 PM

D'Onta Foreman exited Week 11 against the Cardinals with a left ankle injury.

After doing next to nothing in the first half, Foreman came to life during a long drive at the end of the third quarter, gaining 43 yards on nine touches and finishing things off with a three-yard score. He did even better on his next touch, getting the corner and out-running the defense for a 34-yard touchdown, but he stepped awkwardly on his way into the end zone and had to be carted off the field with a left ankle injury. Perhaps the injury is not a serious as it looked, but it is a terrible blow for a rookie on his way to his best game as a pro. Foreman was on crutches in the locker room after the game.
