The Houston Texans are gearing up to take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 16. The Texans are playing for pride at this point, but can also play spoiler if they can take down the division-leading Titans. Houston’s offense has been dealing with injuries to their pass-catchers all season, and that appears to be continuing this week. Nico Collins is dealing with a shoulder injury and has yet to practice.

Fantasy football advice
Collins has only played in 10 games this season. He has 37 receptions on 66 targets for 481 yards and two touchdowns. He is a solid complement to starting wideout Brandin Cooks and has played well in his second career season. Unfortunately, the inconsistent usage and the rotating door at quarterback don’t give much upside to Collins. He should remain on your bench even if he is active for Week 16.
