Houston Texans WR Nico Collins said he hopes to finish with at least 1,500 receiving yards this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Collins posted a career-high 1,297 yards this past season and will continue to be a big part of the passing game even though the team added Stefon Diggs during the offseason. He may not be able to reach his goal in 2024 but likely will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins reportedly agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $72.75 million - including $52 million guaranteed - on Tuesday, May 28. The deal could max out at $75 million through incentives.
Huddle Up: It is unclear what effect Stefon Diggs' arrival will have on Collins' production this season, but this extension guarantees he will tied to the hip of C.J. Stroud through the end of the latter's rookie contract. Collins figures to be the primary option in the red zone for what should be one of the best offenses in the league in 2024, so fantasy managers should probably expect him to be a solid WR2 option.

Houston Texans RB Dameon Pierce will be part of a "one-two punch" with RB Joe Mixon, according to head coach DeMeco Ryans. "What I have seen from Dameon this offseason is a guy who has put in the work," Ryans said. "I see Dameon having a very clear head space as we are out working, and I think that will allow him to have a really productive year this year. He has everything it takes to be a really good running back for us, and I think him and Joe as a one-two punch would be very beneficial for us all."
Huddle Up: Pierce has yet to live up to that second-round draft status, largely because of injuries, and he has a proven, consistent back ahead of him. He'll see his chances, and while he has been pretty healthy in his career, Mixon is aging in terms of the position. Pierce will be a must-handcuff to Mixon and an RB4 on his own.

Houston Texans RBs Joe Mixon and Dameon Pierce are both expected to receive plenty of offensive snaps in 2024, according to head coach DeMeco Ryans, although Mixon is likely to be the starter and receive the majority of the carries.
Huddle Up: Mixon should be viewed as an RB2 or flex option in most fantasy leagues, while Pierce appears to be nothing more than a handcuff option at this point.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (leg) participated in the voluntary workout Tuesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Dell appears to be making good progress and should be fine for training camp. He was posting terrific numbers last season before his season-ending injury and likely will be a big part of the offense again this upcoming season. He likely will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (leg) is going through a speedy recovery from the gunshot wound that went through his leg, according to sources Saturday, May 18.
Huddle Up: Dell seems to be making strong progress and should continue to be viewed as a fringe WR2 with weekly upside in the Texans offense.

Houston Texans RB Dameon Pierce will be "a big part of what we're doing (in 2024)," according to general manager Nick Caserio during his appearance on Sports Radio 610 on Thursday, May 2. "The big thing right now is to be in good condition - which he is. Watching him move on the field, he looks pretty good. Everybody's looking forward to the opportunity in front of them; you can't worry about what's happened in the past. He's got as good an attitude as anyone on the team. We're glad DP is here. He's going to be a big part of what we're doing. He's working his (butt) off so far, which is great to see," Caserio said.
Huddle Up: To say the least, Pierce had a forgettable second season after being one of the few good things about the team's offense in 2022. Pierce will likely begin training camp as the primary backup to Joe Mixon, who is expected to handle the bulk of the work in the backfield, although he will have to hold off sixth-round draft choice Jawhar Jordan for the privilege. Given Mixon's expected bell-cow role, Pierce should be viewed as nothing more than a handcuff option in fantasy this summer.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (undisclosed) is "doing great" in his recovery from a gunshot wound he suffered last week, according to general manager Nick Caserio.
Huddle Up: Great news for Dell, who is also in the last stages of recovering from a fibula injury he suffered as a rookie last season. Dell was treated and released from the hospital shortly after last week's incident, and Caserio noted the receiver has "been in and out of the building" since then. The Texans have the luxury of time in terms of getting their second-year receiver right for the season, although he will likely fall into the WR3 range for fantasy purposes given the arrival of Stefon Diggs.

Ohio State TE Cade Stover was selected by the Houston Texans with the 123rd overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Stover likely will be the No. 2 tight end behind Dalton Schultz for the next few years. He may see a few targets each game but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues this upcoming season.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (leg) looks "great" and should be able to participate fully in training camp this summer, according to QB C.J. Stroud, who organized a throwing session with Dell and a few other teammates in Los Angeles recently. There even appears to be a strong possibility he will be ready for the start of offseason activities on May 20.
Huddle Up: It sounds like it will be all-systems-go for one of last year's biggest rookie surprises, although there will be more competition for targets this season with Stefon Diggs in town. While there is a strong possibility that Diggs leads the group in most receiving categories, there is also a good chance Nico Collins and Dell will also contribute enough to be - at worst - solid WR3 options in fantasy most weeks.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Stefon Diggs can become a free agent at the end of the 2024 season after the Texans agreed to remove the final three years of his contract. Additionally, Houston took the $3.5 million guaranteed to Diggs in 2025 and moved it into this season, bumping up his guaranteed money for 2024 to $22.52 million.
Huddle Up: This is a bold yet strategic move by the Texans, who should get a motivated (and possibly happy) Diggs at the very least. While it would be painful to lose Diggs AND the second-round pick it took to acquire him, the tradeoff is that Diggs will have every reason to be on his best behavior. Don't be surprised if Diggs proves that rumors of his demise were greatly exaggerated, although it may be difficult for him to extend his 100-catch season streak to five with Nico Collins and Tank Dell also pushing for targets.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs was acquired by the Houston Texans Wednesday, April 3, in exchange for undisclosed draft pick compensation.
Huddle Up: No, this is no post-April Fool's joke. The electrifying rookie C.J. Stroud just got a WR1 to go with an already solid supporting cast. It's hard to envision he sees 160 targets again with Nico Collins and Tank Dell also hungry. Diggs was the WR9 last year, but he really fell off in the second half. There's no reason he can't remain around that area, but don't overdraft the 30-year-old amidst all the hype.

Houston Texans QB C.J. Stroud has a chance to make a big jump in his play next season since he will not have to learn a playbook this offseason and can working on improving his skills, according to head coach DeMeco Ryans.
Huddle Up: Stroud is coming off a terrific 2023 season and should be one of the better quarterbacks again next season. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (leg) is making good progress in his recovery and is on track to participate in offseason workouts, according to head coach DeMeco Ryans.
Huddle Up: Dell was having a terrific rookie season before the injury and should be a big part of the passing game in 2024. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.

Houston Texans WR Tank Dell (leg) continues to progress in his recovery from a broken fibula and is now running and cutting, he revealed in a video posted to social media on Sunday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Dell predicted he'd be ready for OTAs earlier this year and it appears he's on track to do just that. It's certainly fair to temper expectations to more a flex option, considering the serious injury he's coming back from. However, after ranking as WR14 overall last season before his injury, Dell could return WR2 value if he returns to form.

Houston Texans RB Joe Mixon signed a three-year contract extension with the Texans Thursday, March 14, worth $27 million, according to a source. The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: It looks like Mixon will be the starting back for the Texans for the foreseeable future. He should see most of the work at the position and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon will be traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft choice at the start of the new league year on Wednesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: The Texans are probably more than happy to give up a conditional seventh-round pick for one year of Mixon and his $6.1 million cap charge rather than try to bid for his services as a free agent, which would have been the case if he had been released. Mixon should be a good bet to handle 15 to 18 touches most weeks behind what should be a good offensive line in Houston - assuming better injury luck this season - which should allow the four-time 1,000-yard rusher to be a serviceable low-end fantasy RB1 for one more year.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon was acquired by the Houston Texans Tuesday, March 12, for an undisclosed package.
Huddle Up: Mixon turns 28 in July and is coming off a 257-1,034-9 line on the ground and a 52-376-3 line through the air. He finished the year as the RB6 in PPR leagues. He'll give the backfield stability and make the Texans even more dangerous if QB C.J. Stroud is for real and doesn't tank into a sophomore slump. Dameon Pierce will be behind Mixon, and Pierce's dynasty league owners are pretty unhappy right now. Mixon remains a midrange RB1. Pierce slips to a handcuff/RB4 type because he doesn't do a lot through the air.

Impending free-agent WR Noah Brown (Texans) agreed to terms with the Houston Texans Monday, March 11, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Brown was productive in the passing game when healthy this past season and probably will be the No. 3 receiver behind Nico Collins and Tank Dell in 2024. He should see a decent amount of targets in each game next season and could be a flex option against certain opponents.

Houston Texans impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth $36 million - including $23.5 million fully guaranteed - to remain with the team on Tuesday, March 5, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Schultz got off to a bit of a slow start in his first year in Houston, but he made up for lost time by scoring five touchdowns over a seven-week period. Although he doesn't usually offer much after the catch, this past year marked the fourth straight season in which he managed at least 57 catches, 577 receiving yards and four touchdowns. That is a relatively high floor at such a scarce position in fantasy football, which should make him an attractive low-end TE1 again in 2024.

Houston Texans impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz is a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach a contract agreement before the deadline Tuesday, March 5.
Huddle Up: Schultz was a reliable option in the passing game when healthy and appears to be on track to stay with the Texans for at least one more season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs posted a catch rate of 72% from Weeks 1-9 in 2023, but that mark fell to 59% from Week 10 onward.
Huddle Up: Diggs still managed an impressive 107 receptions, but he finished with his fewest receiving yards since joining the Bills, and he seemed unhappy with his role at times. There is a chance that he simply had a rough patch at the end of the year, but it could also be a sign that he is starting to decline a bit.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is unlikely to return to the team in 2024, according to Jay Morrison of Pro Football Network.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a staple of the Cincinnati backfield for the past seven seasons, but he had to restructure his contract to remain with the team in 2023, and it will likely take a similar move this offseason for the relationship to have any chance of continuing.

Houston Texans impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz said he would like to re-sign with the Texans this offseason and believes the two sides will be able to reach an agreement.
Huddle Up: Schultz posted 635 receiving yards and five touchdowns during the regular season and probably will receive interest from several teams if he hits the free-agent market. He will see a good amount of targets if he remains with the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game. The Bills did not hold a practice Friday, so his practice participation is an estimation.

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) was upgraded to a limited practice on Friday, Jan. 19.
Huddle Up: According to head coach Sean McDermott, Diggs suffered his foot injury in the Wild Card Game and it "cropped up a bit" later in the week, which led to Thursday's DNP. He will almost certainly be listed as questionable on the final injury report later Friday, but there does not seem to be much concern about his ability to play in the Divisional Round game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Diggs has not been very effective in fantasy for the better part of the last two months, so he should not be considered a hot commodity in DFS.
