Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Held out of first OTA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiedorowicz did not participate in Tuesday's OTA due to an undisclosed issue, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The nature of Fiedorowicz's current issue in unclear, but it's unlikely that he's dealing with any sort of severe injury at this point in the offseason. He figures to once again lead the tight end corps in Houston upon his return, but Ryan Griffin may see additional reps while Fiedorowicz watches from the sideline in the short term.

Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Scores touchdown in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fiedorowicz caught three of five targets for 36 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown, in Houston's 34-16 loss to New England in their divisional-round playoff game Saturday.

Fiedorowicz capped off the finest season of his three-year career with his fifth touchdown catch. Pigeonholed as a blocking tight end the first two years of his NFL career, Fiedorowicz busted out with 89 targets, 54 receptions, 559 yards and four touchdowns over 15 regular-season games. His elevation as a target was borne out of necessity, as quarterback Brock Osweiler's rapport with his wideouts was fleeting. Osweiler still has one guaranteed year left on his contract and is the presumed starter next year. If the timing problems with wideouts DeAndre Hopkins or Will Fuller persist, Fiedorowicz has now proven he can handle a larger role.

Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Two catches in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fiedorowicz caught two of four targets for 35 yards in Houston's 27-14 win over Oakland in Saturday's AFC wild-card round playoff game.

As has been the case all season, Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler was comfortable targeting the tight ends and did so early in the game. Seven of his first 10 passing attempts were directed toward Fiedorowicz or Ryan Griffin (four targets, three catches). Once he got into a rhythm and gained some confidence, the quarterback started looking downfield more to DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. In the end, the Texans ended running the ball much more than throwing, something we expect them to try in next week's divisional round at New England or Kansas City.

Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Snaps TD drought in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiedorowicz caught two of seven targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in Houston's 24-17 loss to Tennessee in Week 17.

The touchdown was the first in seven games for Fiedorowicz, who finished the 2016 regular season with a career-high four scores. His breakthrough year wasn't only limited to touchdowns -- he had career highs in targets (89), receptions (54) and yards (559). Labelled as a blocking tight end his first two seasons with the Texans, Fiedorowicz became a bigger part of the passing attack early in the season when quarterback Brock Osweiler failed to develop consistency outside the numbers to his wideouts. Obviously, Texans head coach Bill O'Brien would like to have seen better chemistry between his quarterback and wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller, but he unearthed a viable receiving threat at the tight end position. If the Texans can figure out their downfield attack, Fiedorowicz will have more room to work in the short-to-medium level in 2017.

Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Returns to action in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fiedorowicz caught four of seven targets for 42 yards in Houston's 12-10 win over Cincinnati in Week 16 on Saturday.

Fiedorowicz returned to action after missing one game due to a concussion and led the Texans in targets, so he wasn't truly impacted by the quarterback switch from Brock Osweiler to Tom Savage. He's certainly proved to be a reliable tight end target, but Fiedorowicz hasn't scored a touchdown in six games, as he's been hamstrung by inferior quarterback play regardless of who's been under center.
