Texans allow 30 points again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:55 pm ET) After allowing 33 points Week 6 against Indianapolis, the Texans allowed 30 Week 7 at Pittsburgh. But while their struggles were to be expected against a Colts offense that ranks No. 1 in the NFL, at least in terms of yardage, the same can't be said for their matchup against the Steelers, who scored 10 points against the Browns in Week 6 and 17 against the Jaguars in Week 5.

Because turnovers kept putting the Steelers in good field position, the Texans allowed 328 yards, only 12 away from their season low. They recorded three sacks, equaling a season high met twice previously, but their only takeaway was a fumble recovery in the first quarter.

The Texans haven't had a favorable schedule of late, but their DST has mostly held its own. Again, the 30 points given up in this one was as much the fault of the offense. With an appealing matchup Week 8 at Tennessee, the Texans DST is an advisable play in Fantasy.


Texans' Brandon Brooks sheds 12 pounds due to stomach illness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Texans right guard Brandon Brooks, who didn't play Week 6 against the Colts, spent nearly two days in the hospital because of a stomach illness. Brooks, who was discharged from the hospital Friday morning, was back at the team facility Monday, per the team's official website.

He told reporters that he lost 12 pounds while in the emergency room, but is "good to go" moving forward.


Texans' J.J. Watt continues to terrorize Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Texans defensive end J.J. Watt continued to terrorize offenses Week 6. 

Watt found a way to make a huge impact during the game. He had seven tackles, including three that went for a loss. He also defensed three passes, and was credited with four quarterback hits. His biggest play came on a fumble recovery. Watt shot through the Texans offensive line to recover the fumble, then picked up it and rumbled 45 yards for the score. It was Watt's third touchdown of the season. 

Watt will take on the Steelers Week 7. 


Texans defense forces three turnovers in overtime loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Texans defense adopted a bend-don't-break strategy in Week 5 against the Cowboys and it nearly worked out, however they fell 20-17 in overtime.

Though they were tagged for 456 yards of total offense, the Texans allowed just two touchdowns in the game. They forced three turnovers -- two on fumbles -- and added one sack in the loss.

The Texans have enjoyed an easy early schedule, and are holding their first five opponents to 17.4 points per game. They face their toughest test yet in Week 6, however, with the Colts on the way. 


Report: Target date for Jadeveon Clowney's return is Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Darryl Morris spotted wearing a brace on left leg


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Texans cornerback Darryl Morris, who came down with the game-ending interception late in the fourth quarter to clinch a 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4, was spotted wearing a brace on his left leg on Monday, per the Houston Chronicle. When asked if he'll play against the Cowboys in Week 5, Morris referred all injury questions to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Morris has registered 14 tackles on the year (12 solo), along with four defended passes and one interception.


J.J. Watt scores again as Texans DST dominates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Texans bounced back from their worst performance of the season with a big game on the defensive side of the ball Sunday, in a 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4.

The Texans held the Bills to just 316 yards of total offense, and came up with a multitude of big plays. Though EJ Manuel was only sacked twice, the Texans came up with two interceptions, including one that was returned 80 yards by J.J. Watt early in the third quarter.

The Texans have allowed just 16.8 points per game through four weeks, and have held three of four opponents under 20 points so far. They might have a hard time repeating the feat in Week 5, with the Cowboys on the schedule.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Texans did force a fumble down inside the 5-yard line as the Giants were driving for a score in the first half. They also got a sack from J.J. Watt, while linebacker Brian Cushing finished with a team-high 17 tackles (eight solo). Safety Kendrick Lewis had a team-high 11 solo tackles and finished with 12 total tackles and one forced fumble.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Texans had another field day in Week 2 against the Raiders, forcing four turnovers in a 30-14 victory.

Kareem Jackson and Brooks Reed each came down with interceptions. Johnathan Joseph and D.J. Swearinger each recovered a fumble. Houston limited Oakland to 364 yards of total offense, 263 of which came from the aerial attack.

Texans give up yards Week 1, but hold Redskins to one TD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Texans defense had a bend-but-don't-break mentality during a 17-6 win Week 1 against the Redskins. While Washington put up 372 yards, including 131 rushing yards, Houston allowed just one touchdown -- a 1-yard run by Darrel Young in the second quarter.

The Texans also forced two fumbles and had three sacks. And it wasn't just all the defense Sunday. The special teams unit also got involved.

Defensive lineman J.J. Watt blocked an extra point, and Alfred Blue blocked a punt in the second quarter, which he picked up and ran in for a 5-yard touchdown.

Though, it was not all good news for the Texans defense. They lost rookie Jadeveon Clowney to a knee injury and it appears he's going to be out for a while. NFL.com reports Clowney is slated to miss 4-6 weeks due to a torn meniscus.

The Texans are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.

Texans DST a good Fantasy option Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The Texans will play their first regular-season game under rookie head coach Bill O'Brien in a Week 1 showdown against Washington. The Texans are coming off a 2-14 season, and their defense ranked 24th in scoring (26.8 points allowed per game) and seventh in total defense (317.6 yards allowed per game) last year.

The Redskins also play their first game under a rookie head coach Sunday, as Jay Gruden is now roaming the sidelines for Washington. The former Bengals offensive coordinator will look to improve a Redskins offense that averaged 20.9 points per game (23rd) in 2013.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin did not look impressive during the preseason, but the Washington offense is still loaded with playmakers like DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Alfred Morris and Jordan Reed. Though, the Texans offensive line will certainly have its hands full trying to slow down pass rushers J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.

DSTs averaged 13.7 Fantasy points per week against the Redskins last year. The Texans DST should be considered a viable starting Fantasy option Week 1.
