  Texans | Deshaun Watson not budging    Fri Sep 24, 11:07 AM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson remains committed to forcing his exit from Houston and doesn't care how long it takes, according to a source. 'If you're paying him $10 million to sit this year, ' the source said, 'you don't think he would take $30 million and sit next year?'

Footballguys view: Watson's legal issues should be resolved this offseason, which will move this situation forward and likely sharpen trade interest, but if for some reason it was still open-ended at this time next year, then we will end up right back where we are right now.

  Texans | Brandin Cooks delivers Thursday night    Fri Sep 24, 02:06 AM

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks caught nine passes for 112 yards against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, Sept. 23. He was targeted 11 times.

Footballguys view: Cooks continues to show how durable his value is through multiple quarterback changes. He was getting open frequently against the Panthers secondary and at this point has proven that he is worth playing as an everyweek WR3/Flex who has produced more like a WR2 so far this season.

  Texans | Jeff Driskel promoted    Wed Sep 22, 12:03 PM

Houston Texans QB Jeff Driskel was promoted from the practice squad Wednesday, Sept. 22, and he'll serve as the backup.

Footballguys view: Driskel is a seasoned veteran with some starting experience in the NFL. He hasn't been good as a starter but he's got scrambling ability so that would help if he sees the field. The Texans are going with rookie Davis Mills as their starter on Thursday against the Panthers.

  Texans | Anthony Miller likely to make debut    Tue Sep 21, 03:23 PM

Houston Texans WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is expected to play for the first time this season in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, according to Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle.

Footballguys view: Getting Miller back will help, even if it's just a little. The Texans will be down Nico Collins and Danny Amendola in Week 3 on Thursday night against the Panthers. We'll see how Miller gets worked into the mix behind Brandin Cooks.

  Texans | Davis Mills will start    Tue Sep 21, 12:07 PM

Houston Texans QB Davis Mills was confirmed the starter for Week 3, and the team will run the same offense in the passing game. The designed runs for QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will not be utilized.

Footballguys view: Mills was seen as a potential quarterback of the future when the Texans selected him in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. He didn't play much at Stanford due to injury and threw only 18 touchdowns in 14 game appearances (11 starts). Mills has size/athleticism as part of his game, and he throws with touch and anticipation - especially in the middle of the field. Poor footwork as a passer and a bad internal clock when judging the rush are his two biggest problems. With Brandin Cooks the only Texans skill position player you can trust, let's hope Mills keeps feeding the veteran receiver now that he's the starter.

  Texans | Danny Amendola likely out    Tue Sep 21, 11:59 AM

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Amendola was playing his part as the slot receiver in two games for the Texans but exited the Week 2 game against the Browns with this hamstring injury. It's a short week for the Texans as they play on Thursday night against the Panthers, so it's no surprise the veteran won't play in Week 3. Andre Roberts and Chris Conley will get more work with Amendola and Nico Collins (shoulder) out for the Texans.

  Texans | Nico Collins could miss a month    Mon Sep 20, 03:41 PM

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined three to four weeks with the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Collins is a big-bodied rookie who we like in dynasty formats. Without Collins, the Texans turn to Danny Amendola and Chris Conley in three-receiver sets. Brandin Cooks is the only Texans skill position player Fantasy GMs should trust.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson not an option    Mon Sep 20, 11:01 AM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will not play in Week 3, according to manager David Culley.

Footballguys view: Watson is unlikely to play for the Texans ever again. He's in limbo as the legal process continues and the Texans wait for the opportunity to trade him away.

  Texans | Brandin Cooks scores in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 06:08 PM

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks posted nine receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Cooks was able to score with Davis Mills in, but most of his production came with Tyrod Taylor. downgrade to Mills for Week 3 makes him a tough start against the resurgent Carolina defense.

  Texans | Mark Ingram doesn't do much in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 05:53 PM

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 41 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns and he had one catch for minus-1 yard on two targets.

Footballguys view: Ingram is going to lead this backfield in touches if he stays healthy, but without Tyrod Taylor, there's not going to be room for him to run. He's just an end of the bench emergency play at best and not worth carrying in short bench leagues.

  Texans | Tyrod Taylor set for MRI, out Week 3    Sun Sep 19, 05:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 20, on the injured hamstring he suffered in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. He has been ruled out for the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers, a Thursday game.

Footballguys view: That's early to be ruled out for next week. The Panthers defense is hot and now they'll get to face Davis Mills in his first NFL start.

TE Pharaoh Brown (ankle, shoulder) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. WR Andre Roberts (knee), DB Lonnie Johnson (thigh) and CB Desmond King (knee) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Brown is probably a game time decision, which could give Jordan Akins yet another opportunity to show why the Texans spent a third round pick on him in 2018.
