  Texans | Brandin Cooks could be out a while?    Mon Dec 5, 02:19 PM

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks (calf) did not play in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns due to Injury, and head coach Lovie Smith told reporters that the team doesn't know how long Cooks will be sidelined because of the injury.

Footballguys view: Cooks was frustrated with his usage earlier this year, and he wanted to be traded but to no avail. Now, he's injured with this calf injury and has an unknown window for his return. Nico Collins is the no.1 receiver for the Texans while Cooks is out of action like he was in Week 13.

Houston Texans RB Dameon Pierce rushed 18 times for 73 yards in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns while posted three receptions for 22 yards on his three targets.

Footballguys view: Pierce at least was worth an RB2/Flex play even though his team was behind big in the second half. The Texans at least showed some signs of life, but Pierce is still a very risky play against Dallas next week.

  Texans | Kyle Allen struggles in another start    Sun Dec 4, 06:11 PM

Houston Texans QB Kyle Allen completed 20-of-39 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, while he ran twice for just one yard. Allen also fumbled twice, losing one of them.

Footballguys view: Allen was markedly worse than Davis Mills, and you have to wonder if we will see Mills again vs. Dallas next week. As long as Allen is out there, you'll want to start the defense facing him.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks (calf) suffered a calf injury during the week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Nico Collins and Jordan Akins have a better chance of hitting as desperation play with the Texans target tree narrowed. Cooks isn't an essential hold right now.

Houston Texans QB Kyle Allen will start in Week 12, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: Davis Mills proved this season that he can't be a franchise quarterback. Expect the Texans to continue losing games so they can secure the best draft pick possible. Then, expect that draft pick to be a quarterback. With a 1-8-1 record, the Texans currently sit atop the draft chart with the no.1 overall pick.
