Player Outlook
Brown flashed his Fantasy upside in Weeks 9 and 10 when the Texans were dealing with injuries to both Nico Collins and Tank Dell. In that two-game span, Brown racked up 14 receptions, 325 receiving yards, and a TD with a WR2 and WR7 weekly finish, respectively. Unfortunately for Brown, the addition of Stefon Diggs will send him to a reserve role. He is not worth rostering in Fantasy leagues until he has a clearer path to playing time.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Should be ready for camp

    Brown (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp next month, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Brown is still recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum he suffered in the Texans' playoff win over the Browns back in January. However, the veteran wideout seems to be on track in his rehab and should be healed well in advance of Week 1. Following the Texans' addition of Stefon Diggs to go with Nico Collins and Tank Dell, Brown will be in the mix for fourth wideout duties in Houston after re-signing on a one-year deal over the offseason.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Ruled out of Saturday's game

    Brown (shoulder) won't return to Saturday's wild-card game versus the Browns. Brown was targeted once on a deep ball from quarterback C.J. Stroud on the Texans' first drive of the contest that he broke up to avoid an interception. In the process, Brown sustained a shoulder injury that won't allow any more game action Saturday. Stroud thus will turn to Nico Collins, Robert Woods, John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson at wide receiver for the rest of the team's playoff opener.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Still not practicing

    Brown (back) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports. Brown, who was inactive for the Texans' playoff-clinching Week 18 win over the Colts, didn't practice Tuesday either, though Alexander noted that the receiver is improving as Saturday's wild-card round game against the Browns approaches. He now has one more chance to practice this week, but the wideout appears destined to head into the weekend with an injury designation.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Absent from Tuesday's practice

    Brown (back) isn't participating in Tuesday's practice, DJ Bien-Aime of ESPN.com reports. Brown and fellow wideout Robert Woods (hip) were both absent from the Texans' first practice of the week after the two were sidelined for this past Saturday's 23-19 win over the Colts. Both receivers will have two more opportunities to mix into drills ahead of Saturday's wild-card game against the Browns. While Brown and Woods were sidelined in Week 18, John Metchie (one catch for five yards on two targets) and Xavier Hutchison (one catch for six yards on four targets) settled into top-three roles at receiver, but neither came through with a useful fantasy line.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Listed as DNP on practice estimate

    Brown (back) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report. After missing Weeks 11 and 12 due to a knee injury, Brown continued to be listed on Texans practice reports for the next five weeks but still suited up on each occasion. He made an early departure from this past Sunday's win against the Titans with a new concern however, leaving his status cloudy ahead of the team's must-win regular-season finale Saturday at Indianapolis.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Won't return Sunday

    Brown (hip) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Titans. Brown missed games in Weeks 11 and 12 with a knee sprain and had appeared on Texans injury reports over the last few weeks with the same issue, but it's a different health concern that forced him out early in Sunday's contest. He'll finish the game with one catch for eight yards on two targets. Following Brown's early exit, the Texans are left with Nico Collins, Robert Woods, Xavier Hutchinson and John Metchie as their available receivers.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Exits Sunday's game

    Brown exited Sunday's game against the Titans with a hip injury. Before leaving the contest, Brown caught one of his two targets for eight yards. In his absence, Robert Woods, Xavier Hutchinson and John Metchie are available to handle added WR snaps behind Nico Collins.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Limited in practice

    Brown (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday. Dealing with the same injury for more than a month now, Brown has played in four straight games since missing Weeks 11 and 12. His fantasy value for Week 17 against the Titans partially hinges on the health of quarterback C.J. Stroud (concussion), who was a limited practice participant Wednesday after missing the past two games.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Seven targets in loss

    Brown caught three of seven targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 36-22 loss to Cleveland in Week 16. Brown had the second-most targets and yards on a day when Houston's offense missed its starting quarterback, C.J. Stroud (concussion). Between Stroud's absence and injuries at wideout, the passing attack has suffered, although the Texans welcomed back Nico Collins from a calf injury Sunday. Houston will not have Tank Dell (lower leg) for the rest of the season, which leaves Collins and Brown as the top two followed closely by Robert Woods.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Good to go versus Browns

    Brown (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns after participating fully in Friday's practice. Brown opened the week with a pair of limited practices, but he's good to go for Sunday's game. After missing two weeks with a knee injury, Brown was held without a catch in his first two games back before getting back on track with eight catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in last week's win over the Titans. That performance came with Case Keenum under center, and Keenum's expected to start at quarterback once again Sunday with C.J. Stroud (concussion) still sidelined.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Nico Collins (calf) again missed practice Wednesday, so it looks like Brown could once again be the No. 1 receiver for the Texans in Week 16 against Cleveland. He just had eight catches for 82 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets against the Titans with Collins out, and Brown has done well when Collins has missed time. In three games where Collins was hurt (Week 9 against Tampa Bay, Week 10 at Cincinnati and Week 15), Brown has scored at least 22.2 PPR points in each outing. It stinks that C.J. Stroud (concussion) is likely out again in Week 16, but Brown connected well with Case Keenum in Week 15 and should do well against the Browns as well. He's worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Logs limited practice

    Brown (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday. In this past Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Titans, Brown logged 66 of 77 snaps on offense and finished with eight catches for 82 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. After missing games in Weeks 11 and 12 due to a knee injury, Brown has continued to make regular appearances on Houston injury reports, but the team hasn't offered any indication that he's dealing with a setback. Brown's listed limitations Wednesday were most likely maintenance-related, and the expectation remains that he'll be good to go for this Sunday's matchup with Cleveland.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Cleared to play Sunday

    Brown (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans. After sitting out Weeks 11 and 12 due to the knee issue, Brown returned to action for the Texans' last two contests, but he failed to record any receptions on seven targets in games against the Broncos and Jets despite playing ample snaps in both contests. Brown remained a limited participant in practice throughout Week 15 prep before taking a questionable tag into the weekend, but the Texans never had much concern about his availability for game day. With top wideout Nico Collins (calf) inactive Sunday, the Texans will likely be counting on Brown for more production coming off his pair of catchless outings. Case Keenum, who is starting at quarterback this week with C.J. Stroud (concussion) sidelined, will be relying on Brown, Robert Woods, Xavier Hutchinson and John Metchie as his top options at receiver.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Questionable for Week 15

    Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Brown played through the same injury the past two weeks, though he finished both games without any receptions (on seven total targets). Looking further back, he topped 150 yards in consecutive games Weeks 9 and 10, then missed Weeks 11 and 12 because of the knee issue. He should get plenty of snaps if he's healthy enough to play this Sunday -- especially if Nico Collins (calf) is inactive after three straight missed practices -- though it won't be surprising if Brown continues to struggle with efficiency while playing through his injury and likely catching passes from backup QB Davis Mills. C.J. Stroud (concussion) missed practice throughout the week, and unlike Collins he wasn't given a questionable designation, with the Texans instead listing their rookie QB as doubtful ahead of a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Still limited Thursday

    Brown (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice. Brown missed Weeks 11 and 12 with the knee injury but has played the last two games and will be needed even more going forward with Tank Dell (ankle) done for the season and Nico Collins now battling a calf injury that has a chance to sideline him for Week 15. Brown, however, may also be without C.J. Stroud (concussion) this week against the Titans.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Logs limited practice

    Brown (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Brown logged 37 of 56 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Jets, but he failed to haul in any of his five targets in the contest. The wideout put up excellent numbers in Weeks 9 (6-153-1 receiving line) and 10 (7-172-0 line), but his recent output (two straight zero-catch efforts) following his return from a two-game absence makes him a volatile fantasy option this weekend against Tennessee.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Blanked by Jets as QB goes down

    Brown (knee) failed to catch any of his five targets in Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Jets. Houston's entire passing game was stifled by the stout Jets secondary, as C.J. Stroud (concussion) threw for only 91 yards before exiting in the fourth quarter. Brown has gone two games without a catch since returning from a two-game absence due to a knee injury. Nico Collins (calf) exited the game, and if Collins joins Tank Dell (lower leg) on the sidelines in Week 15 against the Titans, Brown could become the de facto No. 1 option among Houston's wide receivers, ahead of Robert Woods, John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson. That distinction would be much more appealing if Stroud clears concussion protocol, as the entire Houston passing game would likely take a hit if backup Davis Mills starts under center.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Active versus Jets

    Brown (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets. Brown -- who approached the contest listed as questionable -- was limited at Wednesday's practice, then logged a full session Thursday before closing out the week with a 'DNP' on Friday. With his Week 14 availability confirmed, Brown will have a chance to assume a key role in a Houston WR corps that also includes Nico Collins and Robert Woods and will be without Tank Dell (leg) for the rest of the season. In his return to action in Week 13 following a two-game absence due to a knee issue, Brown logged 55 of a possible 68 snaps on offense against the Broncos but was held without a catch on two targets. A bounce-back versus New York is plausible though barring any in-game setbacks or limitations, considering the numbers that Brown put up in Weeks 9 (6/153/1) and 10 (7/172/0).

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Limited in practice, no setbacks

    Brown (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. Brown returned from a two-game absence Sunday and ended up playing nearly every snap in a win over the Broncos after Tank Dell suffered a season-ending leg injury in the first quarter. Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports that Brown made it through the game without any setbacks to his injured knee and should thus remain a starter for the Texans moving forward, including during this Sunday's game at the Jets. Brown had back-to-back games with more than 150 receiving yards in early November, but in the win over Denver, he was held without a catch on two targets.

  • Texans' Noah Brown: Quiet in return

    Brown failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 22-17 win over Denver in Week 13. Brown returned from a two-week absence due to a knee injury and played 55 snaps (81 percent), tied with Nico Collins for most at wideout. Prior to the injury, Brown played a crucial role in wins over Tampa Bay and Cincinnati, catching 13 of 14 targets for 325 yards and a touchdown. The Texans will need a return to that form after Tank Dell suffered a season-ending leg injury Sunday. Brown is not a direct replacement for Dell's field-stretching ability, but he's expected to get more balls thrown his way as a result of the injury. Robert Woods and John Metchie could also get increased looks.
