Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) underwent sports hernia surgery, according to sources Saturday, Jan. 25. He's expected to make a full recovery.
Huddle Up: Fuller was limited to 11 games in 2019. He managed to catch 49 of 71 targets for 670 yards and three touchdowns, but he's now four years into his career and has yet to play more than 14 games. He'll again be a risky but high-upside WR3 in 2020 drafts.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (rib) suffered a broken rib during the Divisional Round playoff game but continued to play in the game.
Huddle Up: Hopkins could miss some offseason workouts but will be fine for the 2020 season. He is one of the top receivers in the NFL and will be an early round pick in fantasy drafts.

Houston Texans RB Carlos Hyde's one-year contract is set to expire at the end of the league year, and he has made it clear he wants to remain with the team on a more long-term basis. The team reportedly has interest in a deal as well, according to a source. 'Yes, I definitely want to be back here. I don't want to go to another team and start all over again. I felt like Houston was home. I think I handled my part. I've just got to let things play out in the offseason and see what happens,' Hyde told the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: Head coach Bill O'Brien has long been enamored with Hyde, who performed well at Ohio State when O'Brien coached at Penn State. The problem is that despite reaching 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career with Houston this season, Hyde doesn't bring much to the table as a receiver and is almost entirely game-script dependent as a result. The Texans would do well to search for an upgrade in the offseason rather than commit to a multi-year deal with a one-trick back set to turn 30 early next season.

Houston Astros QB Deshaun Watson completed 31-of-52 passes for 388 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 51-31 AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, as the team blew a 24-0 lead. RB Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 44 yards, while Watson also added 37 yards and a score. WR DeAndre Hopkins ended up with nine grabs for 118 yards on a game-high 14 targets. WR Will Fuller was a nice secondary option with 89 yards on five catches, while WR Kenny Stills posted three receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. TE Darren Fells also had three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. RB Duke Johnson also chipped in with 11 rushing yards and five grabs for 23 yards. CB Lonnie Johnson also had a blocked kick return for touchdown in the first quarter while totaling four solo tackles.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) underwent X-rays on his ribs during halftime of the Divisional Round playoff game and did not miss any playing time.
Huddle Up: Hopkins will have time to recover this offseason if he does have an injury and probably will be ready for training camp. He remains one of the top receivers in the NFL and likely will be taken in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) is officially active for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Stills has been targeted 14 times over the last two games but may lose some touches with Will Fuller back in the lineup. Stills can be a possible flex option but can also be benched if better options are available.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is officially active for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Fuller is back in the lineup after missing two games because of his injury. He likely will receive a handful of targets in the passing game and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells (hip) is expected to play in the Divisional Round game against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: Fells was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging a limited practice session Friday, Jan. 10. He is not a recommended option for fantasy playoff games because he will be splitting time at the position this afternoon with Jordan Thomas.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) will be active for his team's Divisional Round game Sunday, Jan. 12, against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to league sources Saturday, Jan. 11.
Huddle Up: Fuller hasn't played since being forced from the Week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A top big-play threat, he's likely to see plenty of work with the Texans expected to trail for much of the game against the Chiefs.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 10, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Stills appears to have a good chance to play in the game despite the injury but may lose some targets to Will Fuller. He could be a flex option in fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is expected to have his status for the AFC wild-card game Sunday, Jan. 12, determined by a game-time decision, head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday.
Huddle Up: Last week's GTD didn't go in Fuller's favor as he missed his second straight game, but we'll need to check in again Sunday afternoon to see if he can give it a go against the Chiefs.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Stills caught four of five targets for 46 yards against the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card Round. The expected return of WR Will Fuller this week would bump Stills to the No. 3 role, making him a risky start in all fantasy formats.

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins (hamstring) remained a limited participant at practice Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Akins wasn't able to play in the Wild Card Round against the Buffalo Bills. Back-to-back practices, albeit in a limited fashion, to start the week seemingly bode well for his status for the game Sunday, Jan. 12. He'll be worth a shot against the Kansas City Chiefs as a sneaky play.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Stills was able to play in the Wild Card game despite the injury and finished with 46 yards. He would see a handful of targets if he plays but may only be a possible flex option.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Fuller has missed some time because of his injury, but there is optimism about his availability for the playoff game. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next few days because Fuller could be at least a flex option if he plays.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is expected to be ready for the Divisional Round game versus the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 12, barring a setback.
Huddle Up: Fuller was inactive for the team's Wild Card contest against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Jan. 4, but had been able to participate on a limited basis in all three of their practice sessions leading up to the game. He should be viewed as a risky fantasy option due to his inability to remain healthy.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins could see more work out of the slot Saturday, Jan. 4, in the wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills. Hopkins lined up in the slot 30 percent of the time this season, but he could be utilized more there Saturday with Bills CB Tre'Davious White only covering the slot receiver on only 3.8 percent of snaps this season.
Huddle Up: This will be the showcase matchup in the game as Hopkins looks to extend his streak of least five catches to 20 straight games. Hopkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 63 yards and a TD in last year's regular-season meeting with the Bills.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) will not play in the Wild Card game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Jan. 4, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Despite participating in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week on a limited basis, Fuller will need at least one additional week to fully recover from his groin injury. Kenny Stills will likely start in place of Fuller and Keke Coutee has a good chance of being active for the game but neither player is a recommended fantasy option due to the difficult matchup against the Buffalo secondary.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson faces the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 4, and the Bills allowed the fewest yards per rush (2.8) to opposing quarterbacks this season.
Huddle Up: Watson is certainly capable of beating opponents with his arm, but his running ability is a big reason why he has become of the premier fantasy quarterbacks. Facing a stingy Buffalo defense, owners may want to opt for a different quarterback in playoff contests this weekend.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Jan. 2, and was removed from the injury report for the game Saturday, Jan. 4, against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Stills has been up-and-down all season, topping 100 yards just once and being held below 10 yards on two occasions. Still, he finished the season with four touchdowns and does offer upside as a sneaky flex play. Just beware of his low floor.

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Akins emerged as a dependable option for QB Deshaun Watson in the regular season. He's matchup dependent, but he could see a fair amount of work in the game Saturday, Jan. 4, against the Buffalo Bills with Texans WRs Will Fuller and Kenny Stills also battling injuries.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Fuller, who has battled injuries for much of the season, is unlikely to be at full health even if he's able to take the field Saturday, Jan. 4, against the Buffalo Bills. He'll be a fringe flex option in a difficult matchup.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) will be a game-time decision Saturday, Jan. 4, for the team's wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills, head coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Fuller missed five full games this season and parts of others, and it's going to be awfully tough to put much fantasy trust in him even if he does play given his history of multiple soft-tissue issues.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Stills was held out of the regular season finale but should have a decent chance to play in the Wild Card playoff game. He should see a handful of targets if he plays but probably will not be more than a flex option.
