Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray went 14-for-21 for 137 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24. He also rushed for nine yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Murray had a good bounce back game after struggling last week. He likely will struggle at times as a rookie but still has a chance to be a No. 1 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will play at least the first half of the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Murray struggled in the last preseason game but will be the starting quarterback for the team this season. Murray probably should be considered low-end No. 1 quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed three of his eight passes for 12 yards and rushed once for four yards in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15. He was also sacked twice.
Huddle Up: After generating plenty of buzz in his preseason opener, Murray was humbled in his second start. His QB1 upside isn't going away, but this performance is a good reminder for fantasy owners that there are going to be bumps in the road with any rookie quarterback.

The Houston Texans selected Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong in Round 3 (No. 70 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1. The Texans moved up from the No. 82 pick, trading with the New York Jets. The Jets also receive WR DeVier Posey, a fifth-round pick (No. 152 overall) and a seventh-round pick (No. 229 overall).
Huddle Up: The Texans got the complement to DeAndre Hopkins in the 6-2, 220-pound Strong, who fell to the third round after being projected by many as a possible first-rounder. Should step in immediately as Houston's No. 2 WR.

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong met with the Houston Texans last week, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Texans have added free-agent WRs Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington this offseason, but Strong would be an intriguing option to add opposite DeAndre Hopkins with the 16th pick in the draft. Stay tuned: Only four more days until Round 1.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will 'get the bulk of the playing time' in Week 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Jonathan Grimes, Alfred Blue and Ronnie Brown will be mixed in for certain situations. It'll be Foster's first game action -- regulation or exhibition -- since his season-ending back injury in 2013.
Huddle Up: Hey, you spent that high draft pick on Foster, so you're rolling him out there Sunday and seeing what develops in the Texans' new-look offense.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is expected to start at tight end in the team's season opener Sunday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Starter Garrett Graham has been kept out of practice by a back injury the past 2 days, and his prognosis for Sunday isn't looking good. That would leave the starting assignment to the third-round pick Fiedorowicz, who caught 5 passes for 32 yards during the preseason.
