The Green Bay Packers are one of the teams to inquire about the availability of Houston Texans WR Will Fuller, according to The Athletic's Aaron Reiss, who adds that no deal is imminent.
Huddle Up: Fuller has stepped into the WR1 role in Houston following the DeAndre Hopkins deal so it's debatable whether a move to Green Bay, where he'd be WR2 behind Davante Adams, would represent an increase in value. Either way, it's just rumor and innuendo at this stage.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson is a candidate for more playing time, according to Texans running backs coach Danny Barrett. 'Trying to get Duke more opportunities more than just third downs and get him on field more in first and second down situations,' Barrett said Tuesday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: We also heard this from the Texans coaching staff a couple week ago after Johnson received four touches in a Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he's only received five and six touches, respectively, in the two games since while continuing to play fewer than 30 percent of the offensive snaps. The Texans have their bye in Week 8, and you should wait to see Johnson get more work in an actual game before he can be rostered in most leagues.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught a touchdown for the fifth straight game, finishing with three catches on six targets for 35 yards in a 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Fuller's yardage totals have varied wildly, but he does have three 100-yard efforts. More importantly, his nose for the end zone gives him WR2 upside on a weekly basis.

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb caught eight of his 10 targets for 95 yards in a 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Cobb set a season high in receptions and targets, but his overall production has been inconsistent, at best. He doesn't need to be starting.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks caught seven of his nine targets for 60 yards in a 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Since a zero-catch effort against Minnesota, Cooks has logged at least seven catches and 60 yards in each of the last three games. He's established himself as a solid WR3.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed 14 times for 42 yards and caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in a 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Johnson continues to post modest rushing totals, but he did log a season-high in receptions. He remains a volume-based flex play, but his value would climb if he starts to see more of a role in the passing attack.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 29 of his 39 passes for 309 yards and two touchdowns and rushed seven times for 38 yards in a 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Houston continues to struggle as a team, but Watson has thrown for at least 300 yards in four straight games and tossed multiple touchdowns in five straight. The Texans may have one of the worst records in the NFL, but Watson remains a QB1.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson has gone 25 straight games without running for 100-plus yards.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been the lead back for the Texans, but a limited role in the passing game and lack of efficiency makes him more of a volume-based flex option.

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb registered three catches for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans on four targets.
Huddle Up: Cobb has at least two receptions in each of his six games, but his yardage total was a season low. At least he scored so fantasy owners weren't left empty handed. Will Fuller has scored in four straight, and Brandin Cooks has been strong in each of the past two with scores in each, so that's not great news for Cobb and his fantasy owners. He is only worth a roster spot in deeper PPR formats heading into Week 7 against his former club, the Green Bay Packers.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks racked up a game-high nine receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Cooks started slow with his new team, but now he has 17 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns in the past two games. He has re-emerged as a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells registered six grabs for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Fells stepped up with Jordan Akins out of the lineup, scoring for the second consecutive outing while totaling 57 or more yards in each game. He isn't a bad bye-week or injury replacement in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers. Fells could be useful even when Akins is able to return.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller racked up six receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Fuller now has at least four receptions, 54 yards and a touchdown in each of the past four outings. He has emerged as a legit low-end WR2 or flex fantasy play in most leagues of 12 or more teams while running hot. The Texans meet the Packers in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson ran four times for nine yards in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans and he added one catch for two yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Five targets and a total of 11 scrimmage yards isn't going to move the fantasy needle for anyone. As long as David Johnson remains healthy and productive, Duke's fantasy appeal is rather minimal. The Texans meet the Packers in Week 7.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed 19 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans and he added one catch for 12 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson's rushing yardage was his lowest since Week 3, but he also found the end zone for the first time in three games. He is still more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 28-of-37 passes for 335 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans and he ran for 26 yards.
Huddle Up: After a slow start Watson is starting to heat up, posting three or more touchdown passes in each of the past two, and multi-TD games in four in a row. He is also working on a streak of three consecutive 300-yard games. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Houston Texans WRs Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller are receiving trade interest leading up to the trade deadline, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Texans are off to a slow start to the season, so Cooks and Fuller could be available depending on the return. Both receivers have played well this season and should be starting options no matter where they play.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson 'might be the guy who shows up more in the receiving game and running game' in Week 6, according to interim head coach Romeo Crennel.
Huddle Up: Johnson was limited to four touches in Crennel's debut as the interim head coach, so just about anything would be an improvement for his fantasy prospects. David Johnson's best quality may be his ability to contribute in the passing game, but he doesn't bring much in the way of explosive plays anymore. That's where Duke Johnson could see a bit more of a role, but whether Crennel or his staff allows him to get enough touches to be a viable flex option is another question.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills finished with one catch for 14 yards on his only target in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Stills is left fighting for crumbs behind Brandin Cooks, Will Fuller and Randall Cobb, and his fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest of leagues at the moment. The Texans travel to meet the Titans in Week 6.

Houston Texans RB Randall Cobb managed six receptions for 47 yards on his six targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Cobb has at least two receptions in each of his games, but he has just one touchdown in five outings and he has 59 or fewer yards in four of his five contests. He remains more of a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells posted two grabs for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on his two targets.
Huddle Up: With Jordan Akins out due to an ankle injury and concussion the tight end targets were all for Fells. He was productive, and he could be a decent bye-week replacement in Week 6 at Tennessee if Akins remains on the shelf.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller ended up with four receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Fuller has scored in three consecutive games while posting at least four receptions and 54 yards in each outing. He is a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 6 in Tennessee.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks finished with eight grabs for a season-high 161 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Cooks went without a catch last week and he had just 10 grabs for 138 yards and no scores through his first four outings, so this was a huge surprise. Fantasy owners might scramble to add him this week, but beware of the inconsistent results so far this season. He'll try to keep it going in Week 6 in Tennessee.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed 17 times for a season-high 96 yards in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added two catches for seven yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson's rushing yardage total was a season bet, and it was just the second time he went over 100 total scrimmage yards. He remains a solid RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 in Tennessee.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 25-of-35 passes for 359 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he also ran for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: Watson got off to a slow start for his fantasy owners, but he has back-to-back 300-yard games and two or more touchdown strikes in each of his past three. He is back as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 6 at Tennessee.

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle, concussion) will not play in Week 5's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Akins had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. TE Darren Fells is expected to start in his place this afternoon and makes an adequate bye-week replacement in deeper fantasy leagues. When healthy, Akins should be viewed as a low-end TE1 option in most formats.

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 9, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cobb is coming off a disappointing Week 4 performance but has been targeted 15 times over the last three games. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues this week.

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle, concussion) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Akins has caught 14 of his 15 targets through four games and is a reliable low-end TE1. He's a top streaming option most weeks if available on the waiver wire.

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb finished with two catches and 36 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Cobb has at least two receptions in each outing this season, but just 213 yards and one score. He remains more of a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks was targeted three times in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, but he was held without a catch.
Huddle Up: Cooks had managed at least two receptions in his first three games, but overall he now has just 10 grabs for 138 yards with no scores. He is barely worth keeping as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams right now.
