Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been impressed with wide receiver Keke Coutee and says he is "playing a lot faster." "You never know what hes going to do with the ball in his hands," Watson said. In his rookie season, the 22-year-old Coutee was dogged by a nagging hamstring injury and caught only 28 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in six regular season games. He should easily be able to top those numbers if he can stay healthy in his sophomore campaign, and Coutee will be in high demand in fantasy drafts in a potent offense under Watson.
Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is away from the team during organized team activities. "I have no idea when he's going to be here. It's up to him," head coach Bill O'Brien said. Clowney is hoping for a long-term extension, but the two sides aren't close to an agreement and Clowney's extensive injury history complicates matters. The 26-year-old has played in just one full season in his five years in the NFL. He had 47 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries in 15 games last season. Clowney is a risk/reward IDP pick because of his penchant for missing time with injuries. He's managed to miss only one game the last two years and has recorded 18.5 sacks in that time.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is seeing "good progress" from running back D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) after his "significant" Achilles injury. Foreman's work away from the team has helped him have a "good spring." The 23-year-old was trying to make a comeback last year but was only able to play in one game and had seven rushing attempts for negative-one yard. A healthy Foreman in 2019 will put pressure on Lamar Miller in the backfield. He'd be a worthy handcuff for any owner who selects Miller and could wind up seeing more touches eventually.
Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin's roster spot is in jeopardy after he was arrested for breaking a hotel window late on Friday night. He was charged with vandalism and public intoxication. The 29-year-old also underwent sports hernia surgery this offseason and will compete with Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins, third-round pick Kahale Warring and Darren Fells. Griffin caught 24 passes for just 305 yards and no touchdowns in 2018 and shouldn't be on the fantasy radar at all.
Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin was arrested in Nashville on Friday night after punching out a front window of Hotel Indigo. Griffin was arrested on charges of vandalism and public intoxication. He was released from jail early Saturday morning. The 29-year-old caught just 24 passes for 305 yards and no touchdowns in 14 games for Houston last year, and he'll now have to fight off Jordan Thomas and rookie Kahale Warring, who the team drafted in the third round on Friday evening. Griffin won't be much more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy drafts.
