Texans lose key piece in receiving corps #Texans dynamic rookie wide receiver Tank Dell lost for season to broken fibula: He will be missed, most definitely (Aaron Wilson on X) FF Today's Take: Dell got injured while blocking on a Dameon Pierce touchdown run. He'll finish the season with a 47-709-7 line and is expected to be ready for camp in 2024. With Dell out, Nico Collins saw 12 targets against the Broncos yesterday and we should see more volume for Robert Woods and Noah Brown down the stretch.
RB Devin Singletary's stranglehold on the Texans' backfield has seemingly slipped away. Singletary logged 8 carries for 36 rushing yards with 1 catch for 4 yards as a receiver in Week 13 vs. the Broncos. The veteran appeared on only 45.6% of the team's offensive snaps on Sunday. By contrast, he'd seen the field on 75+% of Houston's offensive snaps in four straight games dating back to Week 8. It was teammate RB Dameon Pierce who led the way in the contest, finishing the day with 15 carries for 41 rushing yards and a TD. It appears the second-year back has resumed his leading duties after missing three games due to an ankle injury. With Pierce back to a more prominent role, it'll be challenging to trust either him or Singletary as much more than flex options in Week 14. Fortunately, they'll be facing off against a Jets defense that's allowed at least 130 rushing yards to opposing offenses in nine of 12 games in 2023.
Texans RB Devin Singletary remained the backfield leader in fantasy scoring in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. But it came from his lead in receiving work. Singletary ranked second on the team in receptions (6) and receiving yards (54) and third in targets (7) in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. He split the rushing work near-evenly with Dameon Pierce in the latter's return from injury. Pierce carried five times to Singletary's six and drew 1 target. (He caught it for 4 yards.) The receiving lead makes Singletary the play over his backfield mate. But the split makes Sinlgetary unattractive as a fantasy option.
Pierce (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Texans RB Dameon Pierce (ankle) is active for today s game vs. the Jaguars. He was a full-go in practice all week, so we re not expecting the ankle to be much of an issue. OC Bobby Slowik said this week that Pierce and RB Devin Singletary will go back to sharing the workload, although we re expecting Singletary to lead the way coming off two strong outings.
