Player Outlook
Until Auclair finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Not expected to suit up Saturday

    Auclair (knee) is not anticipated to play during the Texans' preseason matchup against the Saints on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of reports. Auclair has been dealing with a right knee injury suffered during Houston's practice July 29. In the sixth-year tight end's absence, fellow backups Teagan Quitoriano, Mason Schreck and Seth Green should see increased usage versus New Orleans.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Departs from practice with injury

    Auclair (knee) left practice Friday with an ice bag on his right knee, Aaron Wilson of reports. The exact nature of the injury isn't clear at this time. Auclair will hope to return to the practice field as soon as possible, because after Houston added Teagan Quitoriano in the fifth round of this year's draft, his status heading into the regular season may depend on whether the Texans decide to keep four tight ends on their 53-man roster.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Re-signs with Houston

    The Texans re-signed Auclair on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Auclair will return to Houston for a second straight season. The veteran tight end appeared in 16 contests during the 2021 campaign, across which span he secured all five of his targets for 47 yards and one score.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Catches lone target Week 18

    Auclair caught his lone target for seven yards in Week 18's 28-25 loss to Tennessee. This was just Auclair's second catch since Week 9, and he finished the season with five catches on five targets for 47 yards and one score. He played all 16 games, sometimes starting, but the 28-year-old was used primarily as a blocker. He becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason but could return on a modest contract to serve a similar role in 2022.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Returns from reserve/COVID-19 list

    Auclair was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. The 28-year-old was forced to miss Week 17 after being placed on the COVID list Dec. 31. Auclair has had a limited offensive impact this season, making only four catches for 40 yards and a touchdown over 15 games.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Auclair was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus. Auclair is in jeopardy of missing his first game of the season, but it's still possible that he is available for the Texans' Week 17 matchup against San Francisco. Though he consistently receives snaps, Auclair has earned only four targets this season.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Untargeted in win

    Auclair was not targeted in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Jaguars. It was a typical game for Auclair, who played 31 percent of the offensive snaps, which is right at his season average of 31.5 percent. He also went untargeted for the 11th time in 14 games. There's little chance the Texans get him more involved as a receiver over the final few weeks, as they are focused on developing rookie Brevin Jordan.

  • Texans' Antony Auclair: Has red-zone target in loss

    Auclair caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 33-13 loss to Seattle. Auclair was targeted in the red zone, his second such target of the season, but Seattle's defense stopped him from reaching the end zone. He's caught four of four targets for 40 yards with one touchdown in 2021. If any of the players in the tight end mix have fantasy worth, it's rookie Brevin Jordan who caught his third touchdown of the season and was targeted seven times Sunday.

  • 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: 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.

  • 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: 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • 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: 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: 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 return to the lineup since Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson all have secured roles.
