Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Amendola has missed the last several games but appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 7 game. He will see a handful of targets if he plays but can be avoided in most leagues.

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Collins recently returned to the lineup but may be a game-time decision after being added to the injury report during the week. He should be more involved in the passing game as the season goes on but can be avoided in fantasy leagues at this point.

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if Collins is in any danger of missing the Week 7 game. He returned from the Reserve/Injured list last week and posted 44 yards on four catches. He should have a solid role in the passing game if healthy and could be a flex option against certain opponents.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Cooks has been targeted at least 11 times in three of the last five games and has posted at least 75 yards in four games this season. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is considered day-to-day but it is not known when he will be activated from the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Taylor could start practicing in the near future and should regain the starting job when healthy. He should be avoided in standard leagues but can be an option in two-quarterback leagues when he returns.

Houston Texans WR Chris Conley posted just one grab for 10 yards on two targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Conley had a solid 84 yards and a touchdown last week against New England, but this is exactly the type of line which makes him only worth a look in the very, very deepest of fantasy leagues. The Texans travel to meet the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

Houston Texans WR Chris Moore registered four receptions for 14 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Moore had a breakout performance last week, but he did next to nothing in this one. He remains nothing more than a WR6 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if you're absolutely desperate for receiver help. The Texans travel to meet the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks posted nine grabs for 89 yards on 13 targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Cook tied a season high with nine receptions, and he has five or more grabs in five of his six outings. While he hasn't found the end zone since Week 2, he remains a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues heading into Week 7 in Arizona.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed twice for seven yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added one grab for 14 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson had just three total touches, while Mark Ingram had 20 and Phillip Lindsay registered nine touches. It seems like forever since Johnson used to be a first-round fantasy pick when he was in Arizona. Now, he barely deserves a roster spot. The Texans travel to meet his former team, the Arizona Cardinals, in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB Phillip Lindsay rushed seven times for 39 yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding two receptions for 15 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Lindsay did pretty well, averaging 5.6 yards per rushing attempt, but he saw nine total touches to 20 for Mark Ingram. As long as that touch distribution in the backfield continues, Lindsay is only worth a roster spot in deeper fantasy leagues. The Texans travel to meet the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 18 times for 73 yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding two grabs for eight yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Ingram did pretty well on the ground despite the fact the Texans were routed. He still had some decent stat totals for a running back on the wrong side of a lopsided game. Still, he is nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 at Arizona.

Houston Texans QB Davis Mills completed 29-of-43 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Mills was unable to carry over the momentum from last week's 300-yard, three-touchdown performance last week against New England. He is only worth using as a desperation low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 in Arizona.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) has been declared inactive for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Nico Collins is back in the lineup and should fill Amendola's role in the passing game. He will see a handful of targets, but fantasy players likely have better options available.

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins (shoulder) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Collins will be limited this week against the Indianapolis Colts. Fantasy players may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their fantasy teams.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Amendola may be a game-time decision, so fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. He will see a handful of targets if he is active but can be avoided in most leagues.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Amendola has missed the last few games because of the injury but has a chance to play in Week 6. He posted decent numbers before the injury, but fantasy players likely have better options to use and can keep Amendola on the bench.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Ingram has received at least 14 carries in three of the have games this season but has been held to 41 yards or less in each of the last four games. He likely will receive a majority of the carries against the Indianapolis Colts but can be avoided in most leagues.

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is the starter when he returns to full health, according to head coach David Culley.
Huddle Up: Taylor is a very iffy matchup play in pristine situations or a so-so QB2 in two-QB leagues.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Amendola was a limited participant during practice last week but was ruled out, so there is no guarantee that he will play in Week 6. He posted solid numbers before the injury, but fantasy players in most leagues will be able to find better options.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) has a chance to be available for the Week 6 game, according to head coach David Culley.
Huddle Up: Culley said Amendola was close to playing in the last game, so he should be able to play if he does not suffer a setback. He will see a handful of targets each game when he returns but probably can be avoided most weeks.

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) appears unlikely to return from the Reserve/Injured list this week, according to head coach David Culley.
Huddle Up: Taylor was sharp in the season opener and looking good in Week 2 before suffering the injury that has sidelined him the last three games. Rookie Davis Mills surprisingly shredded the New England Patriots defense in Week 5 but did nothing of note in his first two career starts. Taylor's mobility typically makes him a decent QB2 option, but neither he nor Mills will be starting fantasy options in the next three weeks with games against the Indianapolis Colts, Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks posted three receptions for 23 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Cooks was well behind Chris Moore (5-109-1) and Chris Conley (3-84-1) in the pecking and production order in this one. The veteran had managed at least five receptions in each of his first four games. He remains useful as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Houston Texans WR Chris Conley posted three receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: It wasn't all great, as Conley also lost a fumble in this game. We've seen glimpses of brilliance from Conley before, but there is a reason he is a journeyman. Despite the decent stat line, he has minimal fantasy appeal heading into Week 6 at Indianapolis.

Houston Texans WR Chris Moore registered five receptions for a career-high 109 yards and a touchdown on his five targets in Week 5 against the New England Patriots in his team debut.
Huddle Up: Moore's previous career best was 48 yards on Dec. 10, 2017 as a member of the Baltimore Ravens. After this tremendous showing, Moore is likely to be up again in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he is only worth taking a flier on in the deepest of fantasy leagues if you're desperate at receiver, especially with bye weeks starting.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed twice for five yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots, and he added five grabs for 46 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson is the third-down back, and he is best used in deeper PPR formats only. His value in standard play is only as a RB5 in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Houston Texans RB Phillip Lindsay rushed five times for 19 yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Lindsay averaged 3.8 yards per attempt, which was best among the trio of Houston tailbacks, but that's not saying much. As long as he is second fiddle to Mark Ingram, Lindsay's fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 16 times for 41 yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Ingram led the backfield with 16 touches, to five (all carries) for Phillip Lindsay and seven (two carries) for David Johnson. He remains nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option, however, as averaging 2.6 yards per carry with no scores isn't going to cut the mustard. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) has been declared inactive for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Brandin Cooks likely will receive a majority of the targets in the passing game and should be the only Texans pass catcher that can be a starting fantasy option.

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Amendola was a limited participant during all three days of practice this week and has a good chance to play in the Week 5 game. He was playing well before the injury but will be working with a new quarterback this week. Fantasy players likely will be able to find a better option for their lineups.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Wednesday's DNP was likely a rest day for the veteran. Cooks is one of only a handful or so of players across the league that has at least five catches in every game this season. He somehow found a way to have a decent day for his fantasy managers in Week 4 despite the fact Houston passed for only 87 yards. With Cooks seeing well over 30 percent of the target share in this offense, he needs to remain in lineups. Consider him a WR3 with WR2 upside in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.
