Texans' Zach Cunningham: Nine tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham posted nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans.

Cunningham had 90 tackles as a rookie last year and he's on pace to best that mark in 2018. He's an every-down linebacker and will look to help shut down the Giants offense in Week 3 as the Texans try to secure their first win of the season.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Moves to cornerback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was shifted to cornerback for Week 2 and had six tackles in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Tennessee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jackson had a successful debut at safety last week, but with Kevin Johnson sidelined by a concussion, they moved Jackson back to his old position. Always known for his support in defending the run, Jackson is second on the team with 14 tackles over the first two weeks.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Leads tight ends in targets in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was targeted three times, but didn't catch any of them in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.

The Texans are using all three of their tight ends, so Thomas has to share playing time with Ryan Griffin and Jordan Akins. All three have received targets in each of the first two games, and at this point, there's no clear leader in terms of targets. Griffin leads with six followed by Thomas (five) and Akins (four).

Texans' Bruce Ellington: Reduced targets in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington caught all three targets for 45 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.

Ellington was targeted eight times Week 1, but as expected, he had a lower profile Week 2 with the return of Will Fuller from a hamstring injury. He was dropped to third on the depth chart and in the pecking order for targets. The Texans threw the ball 32 times with 20 of those directed at top wideouts DeAndre Hopkins (11 targets) and Fuller (nine).

Texans' Alfred Blue: Seven touches in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue carried seven times for 36 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.

Blue once again provided adequate relief for starter Lamar Miller, averaging 5.1 yards per carry after going for 7.2 per and scoring a touchdown last week. Unlike Week 1, he didn't get any red-zone carries, and the Texans never possessed the ball inside the five-yard line, where Blue could be used as the bigger back.
