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.
Texans WR Tank Dell has been diagnosed with a fractured fibula and will be placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dell will miss at least four games and is likely done for the regular season. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for his return. Dell's injury is a hit to QB C.J. Stroud's fantasy value but leaves behind a lot of opportunity for Houston's other pass catchers. Nico Collins will be the clear No. 1 the rest of the way, with WRs Noah Brown, Robert Woods, and John Metchie behind him. We'll have more on those guys in this week's waiver wire article.
Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is active for today s game vs. the Broncos. It ll be his first action since Week 10 and the first time Houston has Brown, Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods available at the same time since Week 1. We re betting on Brown out-snapping and out-producing Woods as the No. 3 WR. But we d rather wait on getting Brown back in fantasy lineups.
Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) is expected to play vs. the Broncos today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday, so we're a bit surprised he's playing. This will be the first time since Week 1 that Brown, Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods are all available. Brown actually led the Texans with a 75% route rate in that one, although it's safe to say that won't be the case today. We'd try not to use Brown in Week 13 fantasy lineups with the playing-time uncertainty in his first game off a multi-week knee injury.
Texans WR Noah Brown (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his first since going down in Week 10. We'll see if Brown is able to make it back for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He'd be tough to trust in Week 13 fantasy lineups, though, assuming Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods all play.
