Game day update: The Texans will be without running back David Johnson, and while that means a big workload for Duke Johnson, it also could mean more work for the receivers. In PPR leagues, ESPN projects Will Fuller with 14.9 points, Brandin Cooks with 14.6 points, and Randall Cobb with 9.5 points.

The Texans passing attack has been firing on all cylinders lately, leaving room for multiple receivers to have success. Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller have both benefited from the potency of this passing attack led by Deshaun Watson and will look to build on their success as they take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. Do both of these receivers deserve starting spots in lineups this weekend? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Texans WRs Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks

Will Fuller is averaging 16.4 fantasy points per game this season and has become a favorite end zone target of Deshaun Watson, evidenced by his six game touchdown streak. The Browns have allowed the eighth most fantasy PPR points to opposing wideouts this season, making for a plus matchup for Fuller in Week 10. Even if his touchdown streak ends, Fuller will likely produce admirably for your fantasy team and belongs in lineups as a WR1.

Brandin Cooks has settled into the Texans offense nicely this season and is averaging 13.3 points per game. He receives a respectable 7.5 targets per game which provides him with ample opportunity for success. There should be plenty of targets, yards, and touchdowns to go around this weekend and Cooks can be added to lineups as a WR2.
