Brandin Cooks‘ return: The Texans’ disgruntled receiver returned to the team after going untraded and missing last week, but he didn’t see his usual snap.

  • The team stripped him of his captaincy status before the game.
  • Cooks also appeared on the injury report with a wrist condition that limited him in practice.
  • He caught four passes for 37 yards.
  • Philip Dorset and Chris Moore started at wide receiver for Houston last week. They fell to third and fourth on the depth chart, but both saw more playing time than usual as Cooks eliminated more frequently.
  • NicoCollins dropped out last week due to injury. He was Houston’s top wide receiver that game in terms of both offensive snaps and goals.
  • Chefs used to be a must in most fantasy leagues, but this is a situation that could get worse rather than better.
  • This makes Collins a forgo in the lower leagues as he could be Houston’s top wide receiver for the remainder of the season.

The Texans tight end space continues to evolve: The Texans tested a complicated four-man tight-end rotation in recent weeks, but went back to a three-man unit this game Brevin Jordan serves as healthy inactive.

  • Jordan Akins was the primary receiving tight end, but OJ Howard also saw plenty of playing time in receiving situations. Teagan Quitorian served primarily as a blocker.
  • Akins caught three passes for 72 yards, making it likely he remains the best to receive a tight end.
  • This is still a situation that should be avoided completely. Jordan was the player who seemed to stand the best chance of having some fantasy relevance this winter, but that looked less likely today.

Kenny GolladayReturn: Golladay saw his first offensive action since Week 4 but his return was overshadowed by a recent addition.

  • Golladay was hampered all week with a knee injury.
  • Isaiah Hodgins was added a week ago by waivers from the invoices.
  • David SillsThe former starter was inactive. His playing time was declining as the season progressed.
  • Mark Johnson also crashed on the depth map. He had been a starter for the past few weeks.
  • Golladay, Hodgins et al Darius Slayton rotated as an outside wide receiver in the first half, and Wan’Dale Robinson occupied the slot in sets of three receivers.
  • Golladay was benched at half-time while Hodgins and Slayton saw all the work in the second half.
  • Hodgins is worth a layoff in very deep leagues as he has progressed from being a bottom-of-the-list player to a potential starter over the rest of the season.

Lawrence Cage complicates Giant’s receiver room: Cager became the Giants’ key tight end after making his team debut in Week 8 before their departure.

  • He made most of the snaps in two-tight end sets, as well as 11 personals, but served primarily as a blocker.
  • Cager played more offensive snaps in that game than in his first two NFL seasons combined.
  • Tanner Hudson remained the team’s third-last tight end.
  • Daniel Bellinger is hopeful he’ll be able to play again this season after undergoing surgery for his eye injury, but that makes it even more unlikely that Bellinger will be fantasy relevant when he returns.

table notes

Snaps include plays recalled due to penalties, including offensive holds or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have had those plays removed.

Goals may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clearly discarded pass, where the NFL can give the goal to the next receiver while those dates don’t.

Carrys are only on draft plays. Quarterback scrambles do not count towards the total number of carries in the game.
