Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Makes two big plays in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman rushed eight times for 25 yards and caught two of three targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 36-33 loss to New England.

Foreman made a pair of big plays in the passing game, with each of his receptions going for over 30 yards. The rookie third-rounder out of Texas is being used as a change-of-pace option behind Lamar Miller in the backfield, but could start getting a bigger share of the workload if Miller doesn't start to improve on his quiet start to the season.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Fails to impress in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller rushed 14 times for 56 yards and caught his lone target for seven more in Sunday's 36-33 loss to the Patriots.

Miller saw a limited workload with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson putting the majority of the offensive workload on his shoulders with 301 passing yards and 41 more on the ground. The 26-year-old running back's season has gotten off to a forgettable start, as he's averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and is yet to get into the end zone through three games.

Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Seven catches in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hopkins caught seven of eight targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 36-33 loss at New England.

Hopkins led Houston in targets, catches and receiving yards for the third consecutive week to open the season. He's developing a nice rapport with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and is by far the most dangerous weapon in this passing game after being targeted a whopping 37 times through three weeks. Look for him to step up next week against a subpar Titans secondary.

Texans' Deshaun Watson: Tops 300 yards in losing cause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson completed 22 of 33 passes for 301 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while adding eight rushes for 41 yards in Sunday's 36-33 loss at New England.

Watson came tantalizingly close to being the first rookie quarterback to beat Bill Belichick at Foxborough, but poor time management cost him on the final drive after a New England touchdown put Houston down three with 23 seconds to play. He threaded the needle in between two defenders to give his team a 10-7 first-quarter lead with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Bruce Ellington, but set up a New England score with a costly interception on his next drive. Despite ultimately coming up short, Watson bounced back beautifully with a strong second half to top 300 passing yards for the first time while adding a 12-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Griffin. The 12th overall pick out of Clemson has injected life into Houston's offense while cementing himself as the starter under center.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

With Blue inactive, expect D'Onta Foreman to serve as Lamar Miller's top backup/complement once again in Week 3, with Tyler Ervin also in the Texans' backfield mix as a change-of-pace option.
