Texans' Duke Ejiofor: Shows off early Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ejifor (shoulder) had two special-teams tackles and one more on defense in Saturday's preseason win over San Francisco.

Ejiofor had a big hit on the game's first play, registering a tackle on the kickoff, then followed up two plays later with a tackle for a five-yard loss. His effort Saturday coupled with his three quarterback hits in last week's game against the Chiefs puts him in line for playing time should injuries hit Houston's elite outside linebackers Jadeveon Clowney or Whitney Mercilus.

Texans' Justin Reid: Leading tackler Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid had a team-high six tackles in Saturday's preseason win over San Francisco.

Reid had a resurgent game in the second preseason game, exhibiting sound tackling technique after being too aggressive the previous week against the Chiefs.

Texans' Braxton Miller: Has game-high eight targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller caught three passes for 40 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the 49ers.

Miller's had an encouraging preseason, both in training camp and the first preseason game, but the view on him is less sanguine following Saturday's effort. He led the team with eight targets, but caught less than half and had a drop early.

Texans' Bruce Ellington: Shows connection with Watson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington caught four of six targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

With DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller both held out, Ellington and Braxton Miller were the starting wide receivers for Deshaun Watson, who led the team to a touchdown on his only drive. Ellington accounted for four of the five completions on the series, while Miller didn't catch any passes until the third quarter. Putting two and two together, Ellington probably has the No. 3 wideout job locked up, though his injury history means it won't be surprising if Miller and Keke Coutee (hamstring) eventually get an opportunity.

Texans' Ryan Griffin: Pair of catches on opening drive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin secured two of four targets for 29 yards in the Texans' 16-13 preseason win over the 49ers on Saturday.

Griffin started and logged both of his receptions on the Texans' successful opening drive. The 28-year-old connected with DeShaun Watson for an impressive 22-yard grab that brought the ball down to the 49ers' six-yard line, and he came just a yard short of a touchdown two plays later with another grab that set up a Bruce Ellington one-yard score. With the retirement of C.J. Fiedorowicz, Griffin has a clear path to No. 1 tight end duties to open the season, which could lead to numbers the caliber of the 50-442-2 line he put up in 2016 if he can steer clear of the injury bug.
