Demaryius Thomas was held catch-less in Week 11 against Washington.

He drew one target and has not so much as caught a pass since the first quarter of Week 9 against Denver. Keke Coutee returned from his hamstring injury for nine targets in Sunday's win. As a complementary receiver on a run-first team, Thomas will be difficult to trust as a fantasy starter going forward.

Keke Coutee caught 5-of-9 targets for 77 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Coutee showed no ill effects from his months-long hamstring injury and severely out-targeted Demaryius Thomas, 9 to 1. Coutee is likely to remain up and down as a complementary receiver on a run-first team, but at least we can say he is healthy again. He'll be a high-risk WR3/flex in Week 12 against Tennessee.
Nov 18 - 6:00 PM

Lamar Miller rushed 20 times for 86 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over Washington.

He out-touched Alfred Blue 23 to 8 after Blue and Miller shared carries in Week 9, prior to Houston's Week 10 bye. When healthy, it's clear Miller is coach Bill O'Brien's preferred backfield option. Ahead of a difficult Week 12 matchup versus Tennessee's stout run defense, Miller will remain a volume-based RB2.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

The Texans completed only 16 passes as a team and Deshaun Watson threw for just 208 yards, so Hopkins' fantasy owners were lucky to come away with this productive a stat line. Hopkins was shadowed by Josh Norman for most of the game. He will get a softer Week 12 matchup on Monday Night Football against Titans perimeter CBs Adoree Jackson and Malcolm Butler.
Nov 18 - 5:40 PM

Deshaun Watson completed 16-of-24 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Houston's Week 11 win over Washington.

The Texans won their seventh straight game despite a rough day for Watson, who managed seven yards on three rushing attempts and failed to engineer a sustained passing game. Houston plays its next game on Monday Night Football against the Titans, who got shredded by Andrew Luck on Sunday but have otherwise played stout pass defense this year. On lowered volume with the Texans leaning on their defense for wins, Watson will be a mid-range to low-end QB1 play.
Nov 18 - 5:37 PM

Keke Coutee is active for Week 11 against the Redskins.

The Texans' wideout corps is fully intact with Demaryius Thomas having one game and the Week 10 bye under his belt and Coutee back in the slot. The Texans' Week 11 inactives are CB Aaron Colvin, WR Vyncint Smith, DLs Joel Heath and Carlos Watkins, LBs Duke Ejiofor and Zach Cunningham, and CB Deante Burton.
Nov 18 - 11:41 AM

Texans CB Jonathan Joseph (knee, ankle) is expected to play in Week 11 against Washington.

Joseph is ready to return coming off Houston's bye. He ended up missing only one game. Joseph has been one of the best corners in the league this year, grading in the top-15 of PFF's coverage ratings.
Nov 18 - 8:36 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Keke Coutee (hamstring) is expected to play Week 11 against the Redskins.

This was the likeliest outcome considering Coutee traveled with the team to Washington. With the Texans barely throwing and Demaryius Thomas in the picture, Coutee is not an exciting fantasy option.
Nov 17 - 11:48 PM

Keke Coutee (questionable, hamstring) traveled with the team to Washington.

It confirms he's a game-time decision. We're expecting Coutee to play coming off Houston's bye, but he's a Week 11 fade at less than 100 percent.
Nov 17 - 2:10 PM

Texans ILB Zach Cunningham (knee) is out for Week 11 against the Redskins.

Cunningham won't travel with the team to Washington. Look for the Redskins to exploit the middle of the field as Cunningham has been one of the Texans' best coverage linebackers this season.
Nov 17 - 12:02 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said Keke Coutee (questionable, hamstring) will be a game-time decision Week 11 against the Redskins.

BOB said Coutee "has a chance" to be out there Sunday. For now, we'd estimate Coutee has a better than even shot to return, sliding in between DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas. Coutee is a WR4/5 play.
Nov 16 - 11:34 AM

Speaking Wednesday, Texans coach Bill O'Brien did not guarantee that D'Onta Foreman (Achilles', PUP) would return this season.

"Can he carry the ball more than two times in a row without having to go get a drink of water," O'Brien asked rhetorically. "What type of shape is he in? ... He had a good year last year. That was a long time ago, so let's just ... see where he's at." We do expect Foreman to be activated before his three-week window is up, but at best, he will be returning to a committee. He's unlikely to be of much help in fantasy leagues.
Nov 15 - 4:48 PM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Coutee's hamstring has been a problem all year, though he's tentatively expected to return coming off last week's bye. He won't be an appealing fantasy option against the Redskins.
Nov 15 - 4:35 PM

Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Coutee was also limited before being held out of Week 9. He expects to return coming of Houston's bye, but his status can't be taken for granted. Even if he plays, Coutee is likely going to be behind Demaryius Thomas for targets.
Nov 14 - 4:36 PM

Texans activated RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) from the PUP list.

It opens a 21-day window for Foreman's return to the active roster. Foreman is a full year removed from his torn Achilles but coach Bill O'Brien suggested his conditioning is an issue. The Texans will get him some practice reps, but it's going to be a stretch for Foreman to play Sunday. Foreman will regain his role as the No. 2 back over Alfed Blue whenever he's cleared.
