Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Improving as pass catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiedorowicz has impressed Houston tight ends coach John Perry, who told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, "He's a little underrated as a pass-catcher just because maybe all the stats aren't there. One of the things I always point out he very rarely doesn't catch the ball. He's got a great catch radius. He's an effective guy that way."

While Fiedorowicz improved from four catches (seven targets) in his rookie season to catching 17 of his 24 targets in 2015, it's hard to envision him gaining a bigger receiving role going forward, particularly with the offseason makeover the Texans' offense underwent. Ryan Griffin, who was limited to nine games last season, is the leading threat as a receiver from the position. If Griffin's healthy, Fiedorowicz's targets will likely decrease in 2016.

Texans' Will Fuller: Signs with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller has agreed to terms with Houston on his rookie contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fuller becomes the final Texans draft pick to sign with the team. He's expected to be the starting wideout opposite DeAndre Hopkins and Houston's top deep threat.

Texans' Cecil Shorts: Takes pay cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shorts' base salary has been reduced to a non-guaranteed figure of $1.2 million for 2016, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Shorts' original deal called for $2.75 million non-guaranteed, but by re-working his contract with the Texans, he's presumably earned a degree of job security at the amended team-friendly terms. Shorts, who caught 42 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games last season, is thus slated to face competition for playing time opposite DeAndre Hopkins from the likes of fellow wideouts Jaelen Strong, Will Fuller and Braxton Miller. In any case, Shorts' experience figures to be an asset to the team's passing game, now helmed by QB Brock Osweiler, and it's plausible that the 28-year-old wideout will carve out some PPR utility this season if he's able to mesh well with his new signal-caller.
