  Texans | Nico Collins could miss a month    Mon Sep 20, 03:41 PM

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined three to four weeks with the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Collins is a big-bodied rookie who we like in dynasty formats. Without Collins, the Texans turn to Danny Amendola and Chris Conley in three-receiver sets. Brandin Cooks is the only Texans skill position player Fantasy GMs should trust.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 41 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns and he had one catch for minus-1 yard on two targets.

Footballguys view: Ingram is going to lead this backfield in touches if he stays healthy, but without Tyrod Taylor, there's not going to be room for him to run. He's just an end of the bench emergency play at best and not worth carrying in short bench leagues.
