Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Fuller probably will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players should check the inactive list for his official status. He has played well at times this season, but players should be able to find better options and can avoid Fuller.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) said Thursday, Dec. 12, 'I'm feeling good,' ahead of the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Dec. 15.
Huddle Up: Fuller will be a risky play, but his upside is well known. He can be used as a flex option if active.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was on the practice field Thursday, Dec. 12, for the portion open for media observation.
Huddle Up: Fuller, who missed the Week 14 loss to the Broncos, has played in only two games since Week 7 and is trying to make it back for Sunday's AFC South showdown against the Tennessee Titans. Fuller was limited Wednesday, and we'll have to see if that participation level increases Thursday and/or Friday. Stay tuned ...

Houston Texans LB Zach Cunningham finished with 17 tackles, including 12 solo stops, in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Cunningham has recorded at least 11 tackles in three of his last four games, finishing with at least a dozen solo stops twice in that stretch. He's currently in the top 10 in tackles for the year and should remain a solid IDP option.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee caught five of his eight targets for 68 yards and lost a fumble in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.
Huddle Up: It was a season high in receptions and targets for Coutee, but the fumble could prove costly for a player who has already seen sporadic playing time. He has shown potential in the past, but one decent performance is not enough to go start trusting Coutee.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14. He also ran once for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: It was a season high in receiving yards for Hopkins, and he has yet to finish with fewer than five catches or 40 receiving yards in a game this year. He has also caught five touchdowns in the last five games. He's one of the steadiest WR1 options.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 28 of his 50 passes for 292 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and rushed six times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Despite the turnovers, Watson finished with a strong line for fantasy owners thanks to a couple of rushing scores. His ability to create big plays with his arm and his legs gives Watson top-five upside every time out.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Denver Broncos, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Fuller was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. When healthy, he makes a decent flex option but fantasy owners should keep him stashed on their benches this week and proceed with safer alternatives.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to see if Fuller will be able to play. He has played well when he has been healthy and can be at least a flex option if he plays.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 5
Huddle Up: Fuller caught just one of two targets for eight yards last week against the New England Patriots. He has a better matchup this week against the Denver Broncos and should be used as a WR3 so long as he's able to suit up.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Fuller was held to only eight yards in the Week 13 game but posted 140 yards in the previous game, so he is not been a reliable fantasy option in 2019. He has been targeted at least six times in six of his nine games this season and should still be at least a flex option in leagues.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells caught two of his three targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Fells had a nice little run for about five weeks in October and early November, but this outing marked the first time in four games in which he had more than one reception. Houston has three tight ends it likes, which is going to make it difficult to trust any of them over a sustained period of time in fantasy. Owners should expect Fells to remain a touchdown-or-bust fantasy property in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills caught three of his four targets 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Stills' lone empty target was a bad drop, but his TD catch was a 35-yard dime from Deshaun Watson. The former Miami Dolphin wasn't able to do much during Will Fuller's multi-week absence, but there's no question he is a quality third receiver in a very good offense. With that said, he's too inconsistent for owners to trust with the fantasy playoffs beginning in most leagues in Week 14.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five of his eight targets for 64 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots. He also got credit for a 6-yard TD pass on a trick play.
Huddle Up: While Hopkins had to deal with shadow coverage from Stephon Gilmore, the Patriots also seemed to play more zone than they usually do, enabling the talented receiver to get a few more clean opportunities than wideouts usually get in Gilmore's coverage. Hopkins "threw" for his score on what looked like a bit of a modified speed option play. With at least five catches in every game this year, Hopkins will remain a WR1 option again in Week 14 even in a difficult matchup versus the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde carried 10 times for 17 yards and caught his only target for five yards in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: There's not really much to say that hasn't already been said about Hyde, who typically needs to score a touchdown in order to be worth starting in fantasy because he is a non-factor in the passing game. Hyde has made more than one catch in a game only once all season and has been held to 67 total yards or fewer in three straight. He'll be a dicey flex option in Week 14 versus the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson carried nine times for 36 yards and hauled in five of his six targets for 54 more yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Deshaun Watson mentioned earlier in the week he wanted to get Johnson more involved in the passing game and, sure enough, it happened. It's unfortunate the Texans have underutilized him for the better part of the season and opted to pound the ball with Carlos Hyde instead, but Johnson is capable of production like this when he is a regular part of the offense. He should make for a decent flex option in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson finished 18-of-25 for 234 yards and three touchdowns in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots. He also added a 6-yard receiving score on a trick play.
Huddle Up: Watson spread the wealth around in this one as no receiver topped 64 yards. With that said, it might have been one of the best games of his career, consistently taking what he could get underneath against zone coverage and taking smart chances while beating man coverage. Watson has another tough matchup in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, but he's a good bet for top-five production again if he can play at the same level he did against the Patriots.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Fuller is coming off one of his best games of the season last week but will be facing a tougher opponent this week. He can be considered a flex option in leagues but is not a must-start option.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Fuller is coming off a huge performance in his return to the lineup in Week 12, but he's started this week with two straight limited practice sessions. He'll need to be in lineups so long as he's active, as the Texans will likely need to throw often late against the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Fuller returned to the lineup in Week 12 and caught seven of 11 targets for 140 yards. He'll face a much tougher matchup this week against the New England Patriots but can still be used as a WR3 or flex option.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills caught one pass for six yards in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Stills had essentially served as the team's No. 2 receiver during Will Fuller's absence, but with Fuller back in action Thursday night Stills had a very small role. As long as Fuller is healthy, Stills isn't worth owning.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) caught seven passes for 140 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Returning after a month-long absence, Fuller didn't miss a beat, averaging 20 yards per reception and really opening up the offense. He gave fantasy owners (and Texans fans) a scare when he tapped his hammy after a long catch, but he returned, finished the game and appears to have come out none the worse for wear. Heading into the stretch run Fuller rates as a solid WR3 with weekly WR2 upside.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Hopkins had TD grabs of 30 and 35 yards, giving him his first multi-score game since Week 1 against the Saints. Hopkins clearly benefited from the return of Will Fuller, who offers a much more dynamic threat opposite him than either Kenny Stills or Keke Coutee. Nuk will probably draw Stephon Gilmore next Sunday night, but he remains a must start.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson carried the ball five times for 22 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21. He also had one reception for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Six touches represents the second-lowest mark of the season for Johnson, whose usage has been rather modest most weeks. He's done a solid job with limited opportunities, but without more of them he's not someone to rely on over the final weeks, even as a flex.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde had 16 carries for 67 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: It was another workmanlike effort from Hyde, who the Texans seem determined not to feature despite him averaging nearly five yards per carry on the year. A nonfactor as a receiver, Hyde is best suited as an RB3 down the stretch, particularly in PPR formats.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (ankle) completed 19 of 30 passes for 298 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during the team's Week 12 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He added 10 yards on three carries.
Huddle Up: It was nice bounce back performance for Watson, who struggled badly against the Ravens his last time out. The Clemson product was able to work the ball downfield with DeAndre Hopkins and a returning Will Fuller, and he made plays at the end to keep Indy from getting the ball back. He'll get a little extra rest before a prime time showdown with New England. Despite the tough matchup, Watson remains a QB1.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 12's game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Fuller hasn't taken the field since leaving early in the Week 7 game against the Colts. He'll be a risky start if active, but fantasy managers are well aware of his upside.
