NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Houston Texans.
The Texans lost a ton of firepower at wide receiver when they traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals as part of a deal that brought in David Johnson. They attempted to make up for losing their superstar by trading for Brandin Cooks and signing Randall Cobb in free agency. Whether that will be enough to help Deshaun Watson compete in the AFC South remains to be seen.
High fantasy/betting impact
* WR Kenny Stills placed on the active/non-football illness list. — August 8 —Activated August 16
Stills has passed his physical and is on track to become a contributor to the Texans’ passing attack.
Low fantasy/betting impact
* Signed LB Daren Bates and LS Anthony Kukwa — August 23
* CB Gareon Conley activated from PUP list — Source — August 10
Conley is likely to start this fall, but considering Houston declined his fifth year option, expectations are not too high.
ILB Dylan Cole — July 31
