Texans' Lamar Miller: Bottled up in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller carried nine times for 32 yards and caught two of four targets for one additional yard during Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Jaguars.

Miller managed just 3.6 yards per carry against a stout Jaguars front and was a virtual non factor in the passing game. He recorded his fewest number of touches and scrimmage yards on the season, in part due to the lopsided nature of the contest. Miller's weekly ceiling for production is seemingly shrinking as the offense continues to sputter, making him a risky play next week against the Steelers in a game the Texans are expected to trail.

Texans' T.J. Yates: Stifled by Jaguars defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates completed 12 of 31 pass attempts for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Jaguars.

Yates struggled to get going against the ferocious Jacksonville defense and had just 31 yards to his name at the half. He connected a couple of times with DeAndre Hopkins as the latter capped off an 81-yard drive with a touchdown in the third quarter, but that represented all of the scoring the visitors would do on the day. Yates fared much better in his season debut against a lesser 49ers defense, but his performance against a quality opponent this week doesn't bode well for next Monday's game against the Steelers.

Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Finds end zone in tough matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hopkins caught four of 13 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Jaguars.

Hopkins was shaking off a toe injury and faced a difficult matchup, which explains his inefficiency on the day. He still managed to produce a respectable performance, however, thanks to a drive in the third quarter on which he hauled in a 40-yard pass before finding the end zone from 25 yards out. This outing goes to show that Hopkins' talent is immense enough to overcome both a difficult matchup and substandard quarterback play, making him a top-notch fantasy piece once again next Monday against the Steelers.

Texans' Nick Martin: Ankle injury potentially serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin sustained what may have been a severe ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said that it looked like a "pretty serious injury", and more specifics should come forth as the week begins to unfold. Martin was carted to the locker room, and with only two weeks left in the season and the Texans already eliminated from the playoffs, his 2017 season could be over.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen won't return to Sunday's game against the Jags with a concussion, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

In Allen's absence, Chad Slade will likely slot in at right guard.
