Fantasy Football Champs:
Texans receiver Andre Johnson fully participated in practice Wednesday and is 100 percent to start the year.Fantasy Spin:Johnson had a minor groin injury early in camp and he also had the wind knocked out of him in the third preseason game. Johnson's top-five upside makes him a worthwhile risk in spite of his injury history.

During this, our 1st week of the NFL regular season. The Houston Texans host the Miami Dolphins and rookie QB Ryan Tannehill to start the year. During the 2011 campaign the Texans made the playoffs for the 1st time, won a playoff game for the 1st time, and tallied and franchise record 44 sacks along with setting many other defensive records last year. Now they look to not only build...
When the Houston Texans travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins Sunday, they’ll be squaring off with a team in transition. The Dolphins have a new head coach in Joe Philbin who has done his best thus far to mold the Dolphins into his team. It’s included trading WR Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears, trading CB Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts, and signing then cutting...
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was held out of practice today as a precaution after suffering what is being called a minor knee injury.

At the start of every NFL season, experts, talking heads, and fans alike all make predictions about division winners, MVPs, and eventual Super Bowl champs. Each year, there are always one or two teams that become trendy picks, everybody’s new favorite team or sleeper team that most believe have serious Super Bowl aspirations. As the predictions continue to pour in ahead of tomorrow’s...
I knew the Texans were going to be competitive in the AFC South in 2011, but their being the dominate team was a surprise. Even with RBs Arian Foster and Ben Tate battling injury in different parts of the season and NFL Star WR Andre Johnson dealing with health issues yet again last season, the Texans were able to rely on defense for once to take advantage of a “Peyton Manning...

It’s safe to say that no one expected much of the Houston Texans going into the 2011 season. All they did was shatter expectations, flip a floundering defense into one of the NFL’s best, and make the divisional playoff round with their third string quarterback. That series of...
Texans running back Arian Foster left practice early Thursday with a sore knee, according to the Houston Chronicle.Fantasy Spin:Foster's injury is not believed to be serious. Houston coach Gary Kubiak sent Foster to the locker room as a precaution and he thinks he'll be able to play Sunday.
With a healthy Matt Schaub and powerhouse defense, the Texans think the Super Bowl is within their grasp. The division title shouldn't be any problem, with only Tennessee looking like a playoff challenger as Jacksonville and Indianapolis rebuild.
Miami Dolphins (0-0) at Houston Texans (0-0)

If you’ve been following all of my picks, you’d know I love betting against rookie quarterbacks week 1. They tend to, predictably, struggle in their first NFL action. Since 1994, rookie quarterbacks have completed 55% of their passes, averaged 6 yards YPA, and thrown twice as many picks as touchdowns during...

Chris Berman (ESPN, 12) - Raised eyebrows despite all the injuries.

This is the Texans year, people keep saying. And yes, it does have that feel to it. But how many of them are breaking down the season game by game?
Well, I am. Right here.
Sept. 9: Miami Dolphins
The best thing about Hard Knocks was watching Dolphins coach Joe Philbin talk to his players. He spends most of his time trying to come up with ways of saying things without really saying...
