Brian Cushing says he's 100 percent


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/17/2014) Posting a picture of himself with his son from a beach, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said via Twitter that he's been cleared for football. Cushing missed the last nine games of last season with a knee injury. 

"Quick Trip to Pensacola with my lead blocker, better believe I'm 100% #beachday #cleared #fivesixback," he wrote. 


Texans cut Evan Frierson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/6/2014) The Texans plan to cut linebacker Evan Frierson, reports FOX Sports.

The report says Frierson, who spent 2013 on injured reserve, is being cut because the new coaching staff in Houston is "going in a different direction."


Brian Cushing still not close to full recovery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, who missed the last nine games of the 2013 season with a knee injury, estimated that he will need up to another two months of rehab before he recovers fully, the team website has reported.

Cushing registered 48 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks before sustaining the injury.


J.J. Watt earns first-team status on All-Pro team


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) First-teamer J.J. Watt is the lone Texans player on the All-Pro team released by the Associated Press.

Texans end disaster season with solid showing on D


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Texans' season mercifully came to an end in Week 17, with a 16-10 loss to the Titans.

Facing a backup quarterback, the Texans defense held its own for much of the game. The Titans were forced to kick three field goals in the game, and managed just 311 yards of total offense. The Texans' defense did a solid job, but also forced just one turnover and had only one sack, as they lacked in big plays.

The Texans had a disastrous season on both sides of the ball, despite the talent on hand. This DST unit was one of the lowest scoring in the league this season, and will be considered a low-end Fantasy option next season. 


Texans list baker's dozen as probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Thirteen Texans have been deemed probable for the last game of the year, including wide receiver Andre Johnson (wrist) and quarterback T.J. Yates (back).

The other offensive probables are tight end Ryan Griffin (knee), wideout DeAndre Hopkins (ankle), fullback Greg Jones (knee) and offensive linemen Wade Smith (knee) and Derek Newton (knee).

The defensive probables are linebackers Brooks Reed (thumb), Darryl Sharpton (knee) and Justin Tuggle (elbow), backs Josh Victorian (back) and D.J. Swearinger (foot) and end Antonio Smith (knee).


Four Texans threatened with inactive tag for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Texans have placed 17 on their Friday injury report as they prepare to play Sunday at Tennessee. But only four have been tagged as anything but probable. They are wide receiver DeVier Posey (ankle), who has been ruled out, and running back Dennis Johnson (hip), quarterback Case Keenum (thumb) and linebcker Joe Mays (knee).

Texans dealing with injuries to top players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) A toe injury will keep Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph from playing in the season finale at Tennessee. Running back Deji Karim (clavicle) will also be out while fellow back Dennis Johnson (hip) might miss the game as well.

Texans come up empty


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) The Texans sacked Peyton Manning once in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos. They failed to intercept a pass, didn't force a fumble, and gave up over 25 points for the fourth consecutive game. 

The Texans now have just four sacks over their last four games, and have forced one fumble in their last six. 

The Texans face the Titans in Week 17. When the teams first faced off, in Week 2, the Texans scored 12 Fantasy points, their second-highest total of the season. 


J.J. Watt to give it all he's got


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt is active for Week 16 against the Broncos even though he was bothered by a hand injury in practice leading up to the game. He was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Texans list many defenders among Sunday probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Texans boast a boatload of defensive players on their Friday injury report, but nearly all of them are probable for the Week 16 game against Denver.

The probables are defensive backs D.J. Swearinger (foot), Josh Victorian (back) and Johnathan Joseph (groin), linebackers Justin Tuggle (elbow) and Joe Mays (knee) and linemen Antonio Smith (knee) and J.J. Watt (hand).


Texans DST not a great start this week


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Even if you were unabashedly optimistic about the Texans -- they have a great pass defense and J.J. Watt can always cause some trouble -- their Week 16 matchup against the high-powered Broncos offense makes starting them a very risky move. 

The Broncos not only have a quarterback looking to shatter the NFL's single-season passing record, but they have a major chip on their shoulder after sputtering on Thursday night against the Chargers. The Texans, meanwhile, adept as they are at limiting passing yards, only have three sacks over their last three games, and have intercepted just six passes all season. They've also allowed 25 or more points in each of thier last three games, and in six of their last seven.

The Texans have a solid pass defense, but that hasn't translated to Fantasy success this season. They can be left on the waiver wire in most formats. 


Three Texans players undergo MRIs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Texans interim coach Wade Phillips said Monday defensive lineman Antonio Smith (knee sprain), wide receiver DeVier Posey (ankle sprain) and cornerback Johnathan Joseph (groin) all underwent MRIs

Texans defense no match for Colts


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/16/2013) Even with the Colts easing up with a 20-3 lead to begin the second half, the Texans DST offered little for Fantasy owners Week 15 at Indianapolis, giving up 25 points on 331 yards.

The Texans had one sack (Brooks Reed) and one interception (Johnathan Joseph). They've now given up at least 25 points in six of their last seven games, recording just one sack in each of their last three.

Needless to say, you'll probably want to sit the Texans DST for Week 16 against the Broncos.


Brooks Reed getting sacks instead of J.J. Watt


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/16/2013) The Texans recorded one sack Week 15 at Indianapolis, but it wasn't defensive lineman J.J. Watt who contributed it. In fact, he's now gone three games without one despite his 9 1/2 on the year. Linebacker Brooks Reed was the one who took down Andrew Luck in the third quarter, giving him a sack in back-to-back games. He has only three all year.

Watt finished with five tackles, one solo. Reed had three, all solo.


Darryl Sharpton has big tackle performance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/16/2013) Texans linebacker Darryl Sharpton, who recorded only two tackles last week at Jacksonville, equaled a season high with 10, including two solo, Week 15 at Indianapolis. He also forced a fumble.

Sharpton is averaging 7.3 tackles in seven games since taking over as a starter.


Joe Mays piles up the tackles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/16/2013) Texans linebacker Joe Mays, whose season high in tackles coming into the game was only seven, recorded a team-high 13, including five solo, Week 15 at Indianapolis. He's now averaging 4.9 in 13 games.

Johnathan Joseph at his best in Week 15


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/16/2013) Texans defensive back Johnathan Joseph had arguably his best game of the season Week 15 at Indianapolis. Not only did he record his third interception, picking off Andrew Luck in the first quarter, but he also had a season-high nine tackles, all solo.

Joseph is averaging just 3.4 tackles in 14 games this season.


Six from Texans secondary probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Six defensive backs pepper the injury list submitted Friday by the Texans, but all are listed as probable for Sunday against Indianapolis.

They are cornerbacks Kareem Jackson (ribs), Johnathan Joseph (groin), Brice McCain (groin) and Josh Victorian (back). The safeties are Shiloh Keo (illness) and D.J. Swearinger (foot).

Linebackers Jeff Tarpinian (groin) and Darryl Sharpton (wrist) are also probable.


No reason to turn to Texans DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) As a disastrous season winds down, the Texans DST doesn't get any sort of respite Week 15 at Indianapolis. The Colts don't have an explosive offense, ranking in the middle of the pack with an average of 24.1 points per game, but they're a fundamentally sound football team that rarely makes mistakes, tying with Kansas City and Dallas for the fewest giveaways.

As a result, the Colts have allowed the ninth-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs this season. In standard CBSSports.com leagues, the Bengals DST actually scored zero against them in a winning effort last week.

The Texans DST has scored double-digit Fantasy points only twice since Week 4, so outside of the most favorable matchups, which this one clearly isn't, you wouldn't want to use it in Fantasy. Of the three CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analysts, only Jamey Eisenberg even bothers to rank it for Week 15.


Texans defense can't stop surging Jaguars


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) The Texans DST unit put up a disappointing performance against the lowly Jaguars in Week 14 Thursday, in a 27-20 loss.

The Texans limited the Jaguars to just 281 yards of total offense, but were unable to keep them out of the end zone when they got close. The Jaguars scored three touchdowns in the game, by taking advantage of short fields thanks to turnovers and penalties by the Texans. The Texans pass rush managed to bring Chad Henne down just once, and failed to force a turnover in the loss.

The Texans DST unit had much more success against the Jaguars two weeks ago, so this was certainly a disappointing outcome for Fantasy owners. Things won't get any easier in Week 15, with the Texans set to face the Colts. 


Kareem Jackson leads the way


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Texans  defensive back Kareem Jackson didn't have a huge game in Week 14 against the Jaguars, but he did lead the team in tackles in a 27-20 loss. Jackson racked up six stops -- five solo -- in the 27-20 loss. 

D.J. Swearing does little to lead the way


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger led the team in tackles in Week 14 against the Jaguars, though he finished the game with just six -- five solo -- in the 27-20 loss.

J.J. Watt falls silent in Thursday night loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt didn't have much of an impact on Week 14, as the Texans fell to the Jaguars, 27-20. Watt racked up just three tackles, with one pass defense and no sacks.

Watt has not been able to maintain his torrid pace from last season, but still has 9 1/2 sacks and 64 tackles through 13 games. 


Brooks Reed gets to the quarterback


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Texans linebacker Brooks Reed picked up just his second sack of the season Thursday, in a 27-20 loss to the Jaguars Thursday. Reed picked up the second, the team's only one of the game, while adding just three tackles.
