Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee registered four grabs for 39 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Coutee has totaled 10 receptions for 129 yards across four outings and he is still searching for his first score of 2019. As long as DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller remain healthy Coutee is nothing more than a low-end WR5 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted five receptions for 44 yards and nine targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Fuller fell back to Earth after his giant 14-grab, 217-yard, three-touchdown outing last week against the Atlanta Falcons. This is more what to expect from Fuller, who remains a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. The Texans travel to meet the Colts in Week 7.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted nine receptions for 55 yards on 12 targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has five or more receptions in all six of his games this season, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game or touchdown since Week 1 in New Orleans. He should still be treated as a WR1 in fantasy leagues because of his past, but he needs to get going soon. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells registered six receptions for a team-high 69 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Fells entered the game with just nine grabs for 90 yards across his first five outings, although he did visit the end zone twice in Week 5. He is slowly emerging as a dependable fantasy option, at least in deeper leagues. The Texans travel to meet the Colts in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson rushed five times for 34 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added two grabs for 20 yards and a touchdown on four targets.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was his first as a member of the Texans through six games. He still needs a Carlos Hyde to suffer a long-term injury or his fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Texans travel to meet the Colts in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde rushed 26 times for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added a 14-yard reception on his only target.
Huddle Up: Hyde has scored rushing touchdowns in each of the past two, and it was his first 100-yard rushing performance since Sept. 17, 2017 when he was a member of the San Francisco 49ers. Treat him more as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 at Indianapolis.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 30-of-42 passes for 280 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he rushed 10 times for 42 yards and two touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Watson outdueled Patrick Mahomes in a battle of two of the brightest young quarterbacks in the NFL. The two picks were a surprise, as he entered the day with just one pick in the first five games, and none since Week 1. But it isn't a concern. Watson has five rushing scores through six games, too, an added bonus for his fantasy owners. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) will not play in Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Stills had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. Even when healthy, Stills is not much more than a matchup-dependent flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder, thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hyde will be the focal point in the running game this week and can be a flex option in standard leagues.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Stills is expected to be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. Players may want to consider other options for their lineups and keep Stills on the bench.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) will be a game-time decision in Week 6, head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: If you desperately need Stills as a flex/WR3 option, you'll need to check the Texans' pregame inactives list Sunday. If not, wait another week and plug in another option.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (not injury related) was listed on the injury report Thursday, Oct. 10, as taking another veteran's rest day.
Huddle Up: Hopkins was limited Wednesday, Oct. 9, but seems to be clear for action in Week 6. He remains a WR1 in what's likely to be a high-scoring affair against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder/thigh) remained a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Hyde gained just 60 yards on 21 carries last week, but he managed to score his second touchdown of the season. He has been a non-factor in the passing game, but he's been a reliable RB2/flex option in standard fantasy formats.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder, thigh) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Hyde has received at least 10 carries in every game this season and has scored two touchdowns in the last three games. He should receive a similar workload this week and can be a flex option in standard leagues.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Hopkins is coming off a solid Week 5 performance and has been targeted at least eight times in four of the first five games. He will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Texans and is a must-start option this week.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Stills' status for Week 6 is in question, so fantasy players need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He posted decent numbers before he got hurt but is part of a deeper receiving corps. Players may be able to find better options this week and could consider keeping Stills on the bench.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee hauled in three of his four targets for 72 yards in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Coutee's season got off to a slow start due to an ankle injury. He was able to take advantage of Kenny Stills' absence and deliver usable numbers for his fantasy owners, although one has to wonder if Stills doesn't end up making him a non-factor sooner than later. At the moment, he's little more than a high-upside bench stash.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells caught both of his targets for 20 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Fells is known more for his blocking, so the fact that he has scored three times in the last three weeks is a bit of an eye-opener. His second score - a 12-yard high-point grab over a defensive back with his back to the ball - was a thing of beauty. Even though Houston tight ends have scored five times in the last three games, there's just not enough volume going to one of them to make them a starting option in fantasy.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his eight targets for 88 yards in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Hopkins failed to score for a fourth straight contest, although he did end a three-game streak of finishing with 67 receiving yards or fewer. With that said, owners should not hesitate to try to buy low on Hopkins if possible; better days are ahead. With Will Fuller having a career day opposite him in Week 5, defenses will almost certainly start playing Hopkins straight up a bit more often moving forward. Keep firing him up as a no-brainer WR1 in a potential shootout in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller hauled in 14 of his 16 targets for a career-high 217 yards and three touchdowns in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: To put this performance into perspective, Fuller entered the day with 14 catches on 23 targets for 183 scoreless yards. He just missed out on an even bigger day, getting tackled one yard shy of the end zone twice. Owners who played the matchup and/or stuck with him through a long September were likely rewarded with a blowout fantasy win and now have a definite sell-high window. While he is unlikely to repeat this kind of effort, he could very well blow up again in Week 6 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Texans RB Carlos Hyde carried 21 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Hyde doesn't bring much to the table, but his volume makes him well worth considering in fantasy - especially in games Houston should win. Week 5 marked the second time in three victories that he had at least 20 carries. His game-script dependency makes him a low-floor option, but owners could do worse during the bye weeks than a back who finds his way into 15 touches on a regular basis. He's worth flex consideration in Week 6 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson finished 28-of-33 for 426 yards and five touchdowns in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons. He also added four carries for 47 yards.
Huddle Up: Watson did not take a sack and had it all going on versus the Falcons' porous pass defense. Will Fuller was the primary beneficiary, although the third-year quarterback was perhaps more on point in this game than at any other time during his two-plus year NFL career. Watson could challenge for overall QB1 status again in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (ankle, hamstring) appears unlikely to play in Week 5's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Stills was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. Fantasy owners should consider benching him this week even if the team decides to activate him because he is at less than 100 percent.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Hyde should receive most of the carries this week against the Atlanta Falcons and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Hopkins is still one of the best receivers in the NFL even though he is on a bit of a cold streak over the last few weeks. He should continue to be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Fuller has posted decent numbers during the first month of the season but as only one game of at least 65 yards. He could still be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.
