    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Eight targets in playoff loss

    Griffin was targeted eight times and had three catches for 29 yards in Saturday's 30-0 playoff loss to the Chiefs. Griffin became the Texans primary receiving tight end once he was activated mid-season off short-term injured reserve. During the regular season, Griffin had 20 catches (34 targets) and two touchdowns in nine games. Despite Griffin's eight targets in the playoff loss, the tight end position has never evolved into a big target in head coach Bill O'Brien's passing offense.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Three catches in Week 17 win

    Griffin (Achilles) caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in Houston's 30-6 win over Jacksonville in Week 17. Griffin finishes the season on an up note, having caught all six targets over the final three weeks of the regular season. In the game prior to the three-game finishing stretch, Griffin had caught one of six targets with a couple of high-profile drops in a loss to New England.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: One catch in Week 16

    Griffin caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Griffin looked like he could provide an out-of-nowhere mid-season bump when he scored touchdowns in Week 12 and 13, but his production has dropped over the past three weeks with just four catches on nine targets for 63 yards.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Two catches in Week 15 win

    Griffin caught both of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Colts. Last week, Griffin had his hands on a few targets that he couldn't haul in, but there was no repeat of that performance in Week 15. He's caught 15 of 26 targets in the six weeks since coming off short-term IR.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: One catch in Week 14

    Griffin had one catch on six targets for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to New England. A couple of those targets came on deep balls that Griffin had in his hands but could not complete the act of a catch. This could have been a bigger game for the tight end, who has averaged five targets per game since being activated off short-term injured reserve five weeks ago.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Scores for second straight week

    Griffin caught three of his five targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-21 loss to Buffalo. Griffin has found the end zone in each of the last two games and is averaging three catches for 36 yards in the four games since returning from short-term injured reserve. That doesn't sound like much, but he's developing a pretty good rapport with quarterback Brian Hoyer which can be useful in the red zone.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Increasing usage

    Griffin, who came off short-term injured reserve three games ago, says he's still feeling some pain in his knee, particularly when he cuts, the Houston Chronicle reports. Griffin will tolerate the pain going forward and has caught nine of his 13 targets since coming off the short-term injured reserve. Houston tight ends have been a non-factor all season until now, as Griffin has become a realistic option for quarterback Brian Hoyer. His nine catches in the last three weeks represent a third of the 27 receptions accumulated for all three of the team's tight ends.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Finds end zone versus Saints

    Griffin caught four passes on five targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Saints. The 25-year-old took advantage of a porous Saints defense on Sunday, besting output from the previous 10 games combined. Griffin could certainly step forward for a Texans team who has gotten next to nothing from the tight end position this season, but he is far from a reliable fantasy option at this stage. Houston will travel to take on the Bills in Week 13.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Two catches in Week 11 win

    Griffin caught both of his targets for six yards in Sunday's win over the Jets. Griffin was activated off short-term IR last week and was targeted six times in a win over the Bengals, which had been an encouraging sign for his future involvement in the offense. Alas, he was a bit player in Week 11, like the rest of the team's tight ends.

    Texans' Ryan Griffin: Makes impact in return

    Griffin caught three of six targets for 36 yards in Monday night's 10-6 win over the Bengals. He had two third-down catches to extend Houston's only touchdown drive of the game. Griffin had been on short-term IR since Week 2 and it was not known how involved he'd be in the game plan -- particularly given the Texans' aversion to targeting their tight ends this season. In two games played, Griffin is averaging five targets per game, well ahead of the pace for C.J. Fiedorowicz and Garrett Graham. Griffin should be considered Houston's top tight end target entering Week 11 against the Jets.
