  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Leads tight ends in loss

    Auclair caught two of two targets for 23 yards and led all Houston tight ends with 36 snaps in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Miami.

    That was a season-high snap count for Auclair, who stepped into the role normally filled by Pharaoh Brown (thigh). Of the team's three healthy tight ends, Auclair is the best blocker, which should keep him on the field and active while Brown is out. The targets/catches were his first since Week 5, however.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Surprises with TD

    Auclair caught his lone target for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Patriots.

    Auclair, who has played all five games this season because of his blocking ability, was a target for the first time in 2021. This was also his first career touchdown. Houston's quarterback situation isn't conducive to producing much fantasy value for receivers, so Auclair shouldn't be viewed as a worthy addition to any fantasy lineup, especially considering he is behind both Jordan Akins and Pharaoh Brown in terms of snaps and targets.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Joins active roster

    The Texans signed Auclair from their practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Auclair has been elevated for both games this season and provided value as a stout run-blocking tight end. With Tyrod Taylor and Nico Collins on IR, Auclair likely will have a spot on the active roster for the next few weeks.

  • Antony Auclair: Back to practice squad

    Auclair (eye) has reverted back to the Texans' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Auclair got knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Browns after suffering an eye injury. He played in just two offensive snaps without recording any stats before exiting.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Questionable to return Sunday

    Auclair (eye) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Browns.

    Auclair has been elevated from the practice squad before each of the first two games of the season. He hasn't recorded a catch in his limited action, as he has mostly been relegated to blocking duties. The severity of the injury is unknown.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Won't come back Sunday

    Auclair (eye) has been declared out of Sunday's game against the Browns, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Auclair's absence leaves the Texans' tight-end group thin. It's down to Pharaoh Brown and Jordan Akins for the rest of the contest.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Moved up again

    Auclair was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Auclair surprisingly was listed as the team's starting tight end Week 1 alongside Pharaoh Brown. No Houston tight end actually recorded a catch in that contest as the aforementioned duo was simply relegated to blocking duties. That might change with a difficult Week 2 matchup against the Browns on tap.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Starts Sunday

    Auclair started but was not targeted in Sunday's 37-21 win over Jacksonville.

    Auclair was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster a day prior to the regular-season opener and added to the starting lineup along with Pharaoh Brown. Both are considered good blocking tight ends, and the Texans plan to be a run-heavy team, so his presence makes sense. Jordan Akins and rookie Brevin Jordan (inactive, coach's decision) do not bring the same level of blocking acumen. It's very likely Auclair, who played played 33 snaps (42 percent), will not have a significant role if/when the Texans play from behind.

  • Antony Auclair: Reverts to practice squad

    Auclair reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Auclair was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's season opener and started for the Texans, but he didn't draw any targets in the win. He'll return to the practice squad following his disappointing performance against Jacksonville but could rejoin the active roster at some point this year.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Elevated from practice squad

    Auclair was elevated from the Texans' practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Jaguars, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

    Auclair will provide depth at tight end in Sunday's season opener. He recorded just one reception for 11 yards in 16 appearances across the last two seasons with the Buccaneers.

  • Antony Auclair: Dropped by Texans

    Auclair was released by Houston on Tuesday.

    Auclair entered a fairly wide open tight end race when he signed with the Texans during the off-season. However, it looks like he failed to make enough of an impression with the team during his time there. The 28-year-old is now set to look for a new landing spot.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Signing with Texans

    Auclair is signing a contract with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    It appears to be pretty much anyone's ballgame for the starting tight end job in Houston following the release of veteran starter Darren Fells this offseason. Auclair saw the majority of his reps on special teams last year in Tampa Bay and failed to catch his lone target on the season. Perhaps a change of scenery can jolt the fifth-year pro's career.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Another quiet season in '20

    Auclair failed to bring in his only target over eight games during the 2020 regular season, logging 70 snaps overall from scrimmage and another 83 on special teams.

    The fourth-year pro mostly toiled in anonymity again in 2020, arguably more so than in his first three seasons, when he at least got on the board with a minimum of one reception. Auclair's snap counts on both offense and special teams were both career lows, and when he was in uniform, it was for his solid run-blocking and special teams play. The depth chart simply got too steep for Auclair to navigate this past season, as Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate proved capable of handling pass-catching duties at tight end almost exclusively after O.J. Howard (Achilles) went down for the season in early October. Auclair played 2020 on a one-year contract, and given his familiarity with the organization and system, it's certainly possible he's back for a fifth year in 2021.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Sits down for Week 15

    Auclair (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta.

    Tanner Hudson gets the gameday nod over Auclair, providing depth at the tight end position behind Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate. Auclair garnered his second start of the season last Sunday in a win over Minnesota, fielding 14 offensive snaps. The 27-year-old has been a nonfactor in the passing game throughout 2020, as he remains without a catch on one target this season.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Boost in snap share without results

    Auclair logged a season-high 25 snaps from scrimmage but did not record any statistics in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    Auclair also played an additional 14 snaps on special teams, making it a busy afternoon for the fourth-year tight end. The 27-year-old's above-average run blocking is likely to continue to guarantee him active status, but he's highly unlikely to see any targets as long as Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate remain healthy in front of him.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Minimal role on offense

    Auclair logged four snaps on offense without a target in the Buccaneers' 38-3 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

    The blocking tight end was active for the second straight week as the No. 4 option at the position, but he unsurprisingly served exclusively as an extra blocker for the ground attack. Auclair's role when active should continue to closely mirror that of Sunday night's, presently making him a non-factor in all fantasy formats absent multiple injuries at the position.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Three snaps in return

    Auclair (calf), who was activated from injured reserve Saturday, played three snaps from scrimmage and another nine on special teams in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.

    The big tight end had an unsurprisingly small role on offense, as the Buccaneers kept four players at the position active. Auclair may usurp Tanner Hudson for the No. 3 tight end spot on some weeks moving forward, but that slotting isn't expected to equate to any meaningful fantasy production.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Back from IR

    The Buccaneers activated Auclair (calf) from injured reserve Saturday.

    Auclair has practiced for two weeks and will return to the lineup for Monday's game versus the Giants. The 27-year-old tight end didn't play an offensive snap in the only game he suited up this year, and he'll likely stick to special teams upon returning to the lineup since Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson all have secured roles.

  • Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Nearing return to action

    The Buccaneers designated Auclair (calf) for return Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

    Auclair has been out since Week 2 when he suffered the calf injury in a win over the Panthers. The team will need to officially activate him in order for Auclair to suit up, but this news confirms that the Laval product will return in the next three weeks. The Buccaneers could use the depth at tight end since O.J. Howard was ruled out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.
