  • Fiedorowicz caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals. In his second game back from an extended absence due to a concussion, Fiedorowicz experienced a drop in targets from six last week. That's partially due to the Texans making an effort to work the running game more against Arizona, a strategy that reduced targets across the board. And when they did throw, quarterback Tom Savage spread the targets around to seven different receivers. We expect a similar game plan that favors the rush Week 12 against the Ravens, who rank 26th against the run (120.8 yards per game).

  • Fiedorowicz caught two of six targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Rams. Making his first appearances since the opening week of the season, Fiedorowicz finished third on the team in targets behind DeAndre Hopkins (14) and Bruce Ellington (eight). The current level of quarterback play will make it tough to count on anyone besides Hopkins, but it isn't unrealistic to think that Fiedorowicz could re-establish himself as the second or third option in the passing game, just as he was for much of last season. He draws a Week 11 matchup against an Arizona defense that had been solid against tight ends until Seattle's Jimmy Graham caught a pair of touchdowns Thursday.

  • Texans' C.J. Fiedorowicz: Activated from IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fiedorowicz (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Texans swapped tight ends on IR, giving Fiedorowicz the all-clear to return while placing Ryan Griffin (concussion) on the list. Fiedorowicz has the most pedigree in the TE room, but he may not supersede Stephen Anderson in the pecking order off the bat. For the long run, though, Fiedorowicz is the best bet to click with starting quarterback Tom Savage.

  • Fiedorowicz (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Rams, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. While Fiedorowicz remains on injured reserve, the Texans have designated him as one of their two players to return from IR, with the report noting that the tight end's activation will likely come by Saturday. Fiedorowicz's pending return comes at a good time for the Texans, with fellow tight end Ryan Griffin in the NFL's concussion protocol and unlikely to be available for the Week 10 matchup.

  • Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said that Fiedorowicz (concussion) will be activated from injured reserve in advance of the team's Week 10 matchup with the Rams, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Fiedorowicz is no longer experiencing any lingering symptoms from the concussion he suffered in Week 1, which was his second since the beginning of training camp. The tight end was one of the better fantasy producers at the position last season with 559 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 54 receptions in 15 games, but his upside will be more limited with Tom Savage set to take over as the starting quarterback after Deshaun Watson (knee) suffered a season-ending injury in practice Thursday.
