Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 23 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cooks was not able to duplicate his Week 2 performance and was held to under 25 yards for the second time in three games. He should have a more favorable matchup next week and could be a flex option in leagues.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught four passes for 54 yards and one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Fuller was coming off a disappointing Week 2 performance and played well against the Steelers this week. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets each week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option next week against the Minnesota Vikings.

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb caught four passes for 95 yards and one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cobb made the most of his targets and led the team in receiving this week. He has been targeted 10 times over the last two games and should have a solid role in the passing game next week. He can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed for 23 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. He also caught two passes for 23 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson has rushed for two touchdowns in the first three games of the season but has been held to under 35 yards in each of the last two games. He has received at least 13 touches in each game and should have a similar workload next week. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 19-for-27 for 264 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Watson has played three of the top teams in the AFC to start the season and threw four touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. He should have more success next week against the Minnesota Vikings and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Stills has posted only two catches and 16 yards over the first two games of the season. He probably will see a few targets this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers but can be avoided in most leagues.

Huddle Up: Cobbs is coming off a decent Week 2 game and has posted 82 yards in two games this season. He should see a handful of targets this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers but probably only a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Johnson played just 24 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 1 and sat out Week 2. He's purely a handcuff for David Johnson right now and the two aren't likely to both be viable fantasy options when paired together in the lineup.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Cooks caught five of eight targets for 95 yards in Week 2 and flashed some of his true potential with QB Deshaun Watson. He'll have a tough matchup this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers but will be a low-end WR2 if able to take the field.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks hauled in five of his eight targets for 95 yards in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Cooks' performance was one of the few bright spots for Houston in this one. His 38-yard catch in the second quarter helped set up the Texans' lone TD. Will Fuller dealt with an undisclosed injury throughout this contest, which explains a bit why Cooks played such a prominent role. Regardless of whether Fuller can play next week or not, Cooks figures to be a weak flex option in a brutal matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson ran for 34 yards on 11 carries and caught two of his four targets for 16 more yards in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Johnson handled 100 percent of the team's backfield touches. The bad news, well, you guessed it. With DeAndre Hopkins now in Arizona and Will Fuller spending much of this game on the sidelines, the Ravens had little else to worry about. Johnson has enough of a well-rounded game to be a serviceable RB2 most weeks, but this kind of performance could be the norm against the best defenses in the league. He's a risky RB2 at best in Week 3 against a nasty Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson finished 25-of-36 for 275 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. He also added 17 yards rushing on five attempts.
Huddle Up: Watson took four sacks and escaped a few others as he was constantly harassed by the swarming Baltimore defense. Making matters worse, Will Fuller was seen stretching on the Houston bench throughout the first half and failed to record a target. Watson's already being asked to do too much in an effort to make up for the team's trade of DeAndre Hopkins, and it could end up in him getting hurt in the near future. He'll be a risky low-end QB1 option in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers' vaunted defense.
