Chiefs' Justin Houston: Strong 2018 despite missed time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston logged nine sacks and 37 tackles (28 solo) over 12 games during the 2018 season.

Houston hit a groove late in the season, notching five sacks and 19 (13 solo) of his 37 tackles over the final four weeks. He will be relied upon as a pass-rushing presence during the Chiefs' playoff run opposite Dee Ford and is scheduled to make $21.1 million next season. With only $7.1 million guaranteed, the Chiefs have the option to let the veteran walk or to attempt to restructure his contract, but it seems likely Houston will remain in Kansas City for at least one more season.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston had five tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's loss to the Chargers.

Houston has been heavily active with 11 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble over the last two games, and he played all but seven defensive snaps Thursday. Week 16 has a matchup with the run-heavy Seahawks on tap, while Houston enters it with 6.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception in 10 games.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Major strip-sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston recorded six tackles (four solo), 1.5 sacks and recovered his own forced fumble across 66 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Ravens.

Houston's strip-sack came in the final minute of regulation, giving the Chiefs any opportunity to win the game on the final play of the fourth quarter, which they ultimately failed to do. The veteran was giving the Ravens' offensive line trouble all day, contributing to a Dee Ford sack earlier in the contest. He'll look to bring the same presence against the Chargers on Thursday night.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Records strip-sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston had four tackles (all solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Monday's 54-51 loss to the Rams.

Houston jarred the ball loose from Rams quarterback Jared Goff in the fourth quarter, and teammate Allen Bailey then returned the fumble for a touchdown, though it still wasn't enough to stem the explosion of offenses. Houston has shown to still have playmaking abilities -- he has four sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception in seven games -- but his low tackle total of 16 makes him difficult to rely upon for IDP purposes.
