The Week 6 matchup between the Titans and the Texans should be a great one. As one team looks to shed the loser image with a franchise QB in Deshaun Watson and one looks to build on a great victory over the Bills. For the receivers of the Texans it could be a beneficial match up.

Fantasy Football analysis: Texans WRs Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks

Will Fuller caught a touchdown for the third consecutive game, finding the end zone on a reception in the fourth quarter last week. He was out gained by Brandin Cooks but still finished second on the team in targets and yards. That bodes well for fantasy managers. At 14.5 yards per reception, you have to feel good about his chances this week to continue that streak.

Brandin Cooks is in an emerging run as he comes out of slumber. He exploded last week with five receptions of over 20 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown reception to seal the victory. Leading in targets and yards, Cooks seemed a favorite for Watson. A real bad first four games could put you off, but that was with old Head Coach Bill O’Brien. In the lone game without him, Cooks shined and should again this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start both Fuller and Cooks. You could even stack both of them with QB Deshaun Watson in DFS.
