Deshaun Watson To Make First Divisional Game Start

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will look to rebound this week after he recorded his first two-interception outing since Week 11 of the 2018 year against Kansas City in Week 6. Despite the picks, Watson completed a season-high 30 passes en route to tossing for 280 yards. The Colts Defense that he squares off with this week has been right in the center of the pack as it pertains to yielding yards through the air on average, but is simultaneously coming off having stifled Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, in addition to having had their bye week. Indianapolis kept Watson under wraps during the postseason last year, forcing 20 incompletions and holding him to 235 yards passing in their most recent meeting. Houstons signal caller remains a must-play in all traditional formats, but his high DFS price tag might be worth backing away from in Week 7.

Johnathan Joseph Expected To Return In Week 7

Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7 against the Colts, but he's expected to return and will likely be tasked with slowing down wide receiver T.Y. Hilton. Cornerback Bradley Roby (hamstring) is questionable but is not expected to play. Safety Tashaun Gipson (hip) is questionable but is expected to play. It's good news that the Texans will have both Joseph and Gipson in their secondary, but Houston's defense/special teams is a low-upside fantasy streamer during bye weeks.

DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Kenny Stills Practice In Full

Houston Texans wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins (ribs), Will Fuller (calf, oblique) and Kenny Stills (hamstring) all practiced in full on Thursday. All three receivers should be in uniform for Week 7's divisional tilt against the Colts. Stills missed the last game and should return to split slot duties with Keke Coutee, limiting both player's fantasy upside as a WR4/5 in deeper leagues. Hopkins has been quiet this year but could blow up at any moment and is a must-start. Fuller boomed in Week 5 and busted last week. He typically has high-end WR2 upside on a week-to-week basis.

Kenny Stills Practicing In Full

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills (hamstring) was practicing in full on Wednesday. Stills should be able to return to action in Week 7 against the Colts if he can avoid setbacks this week. However, he and Keke Coutee could split snaps out of the slot, largely making them both low-upside WR5 options in fantasy. Indianapolis has also been solid at limiting opposing wideouts this year. Coutee would be hurt the most if Stills returns to the fold this weekend.

DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller Limited Wednesday

Houston Texans wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) and Will Fuller (calf, oblique) were both listed as limited participants in practice on Wednesday. Hopkins has been uncharacteristically quiet since his two-touchdown Week 1 and he has just two double-digit target games. However, he can go off at any moment and is a must-start, high-end WR1 each and every week. Fuller had a huge Week 5 but missed several opportunities to score in Week 6. His big-play ability gives him weekly WR2 upside, but he's a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity. Both players should be fine to suit up this weekend in Indy.
