Duke Johnson Has A Shot To Play In Week 2

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson (ankle) practiced on a limited basis on Thursday for the second straight day. Johnson was listed as week-to-week after suffering an ankle injury last Thursday in the season opener, but it looks as though he's made some quick progress. However, even if the 27-year-old winds up playing against a nasty Ravens Defense this week, he'll be a desperation flex play in PPR leagues. Buddy Howell is set to be the primary backup to David Johnson if Duke Johnson has to sit this one out.

Randall Cobb A Risky Play In Week 2

Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb is a risky option in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. Cobb played 78 percent of Houston's snaps in Week 1 against the Chiefs, but was targeted just three times, catching two of them for 23 yards. It was a quiet first game for Cobb in his new uniform. Expected to serve as a safe underneath option for quarterback Deshaun Watson, it was instead Will Fuller V who was the primary target at basically every level. Cobb should see his role increase as the season goes along, but the Ravens vicious passing defense is going to make Week 2 tough sledding for this entire Texans offense. Consider Cobb a low-floor flex option in deep leagues. You're probably rostering a better option.

Will Fuller V Is Houston's Only Viable Fantasy Receiver

Through one week, there's only one wide receiver on the Houston Texans who should be started in the majority of fantasy leagues: Will Fuller V. And while he has an incredibly tough Week 2 matchup with a Ravens team that's going to have a good shot at holding the Texans under 200 passing yards, Fuller's high target share makes him a flex option at worse for this matchup. He had bust potential against this defense, but his speed and ability to work as a deep threat makes him worth the risk due to his boom potential.

David Johnson Faces Tough Week 2 Matchup

Houston Texans running back David Johnson had a strong debut for his new team in Week 1, with 11 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown plus three catches for 32 yards. But while Johnson is set to have a major role in Week 2 with Duke Johnson Jr. (ankle) sidelined, he still has a really tough defense barreling down on him: the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens shut down Cleveland in Week 1 and while Johnson's going to have a high ceiling because of Houston's lack of other options at the position, he's also going to have a pretty low floor because the Ravens have the personnel to slow him down. Consider him a volatile RB2 option.

Deshaun Watson May Struggle Against Ravens

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson faces a tough Week 2 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Watson -- who had one of his worst games of 2019 against this team, when he had just 169 passing yards -- is still a must-start option in season-long formats because of his tremendous upside, but he has a pretty low floor this week. The Ravens proved in Week 1 that their 2020 defense was just as scary as their 2019 defense, holding Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield to 189 yards and picking him off. This is a week where you likely don't want to put Deshaun Watson in a DFS lineup.
