Robert Woods Expected to Miss Week 8
8 months ago

Robert Woods has missed the first two team practices of the week with a foot injury, and is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Panthers.

Tank Dell truthers rejoice. Woods missing the first two practices this week after a bye last week is a strong indication that he’ll miss week 8.

 

Surprisingly, Woods is leading the Texans in targets, even though Dell and Nico Collins have been far more productive. Dell missed week 6 with a concussion and had a bye to further recover last week. He’s back to full participation in practice and is almost certain to return to a fantasy relevant role in week 8.

 

For Fantasy Managers, Collins should be locked into lineups as a high-end WR2. Dell is a very viable flex in week 8 against a Carolina Panthers Defense that is 29th in the NFL in QB pressures generated. Texans QB CJ Stroud has shown the ability to excel in a clean pocket and will be targeting Collins and Dell often this Sunday.

Noah Brown Placed on IR
10 months ago

Texans Wide Receiver Noah Brown is set to miss at least the next four games on Injured Reserve.

Rookie C.J. Stroud seems to have found his favorite targets in Nico Collins and Robert Woods, who combined for 21 targets in week one. That said, we have a bit more clarity now on who will arise as the WR3 for the Texans. With Brown set to miss at least the next 4 games, you can expect Tank Dell and John Metchie to battle it out for Brown’s role, which led him to play 68% of snaps in week one.

Metchie is working his way back from missing last year battling Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, and missing week 1 of 2023 with a hamstring injury. Metchie returned to practice this week and there’s hope he’ll be playing his first NFL game this weekend.

Rookie Tank Dell played his first NFL game last week and was relatively quiet with 3 catches for 34 yards while playing just under 50% of the snaps. That number is expected to increase with this latest news on Noah Brown. While there is plenty of reason to be hopeful for the long-term outlook of both Metchie and Dell, you can expect them to both have a fairly even split working as the WR3 if they’re both active this Sunday. It’s not quite time to put either in your lineup yet.
