C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans will have their full depth chart of wide receivers in Week 13 when they face the Denver Broncos. The team announced their inactives at 11:30 a.m. ET and both Tank Dell and Noah Brown are active for the game.

Both receivers were listed as questionable on Friday’s final injury report. Dell is dealing with a calf injury. He was a DNP at Wednesday’s practice and then was upgraded to limited on Thursday and Friday. Brown is dealing with a knee injury. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, but then was downgraded to DNP on Friday. While this is a new injury for Dell, Brown has missed the past two weeks due to this knee injury.

Houston faces a Denver pass defense that has been playing well lately. Denver ranks 28th in pass defense DVOA, but is giving up the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. During their current five-game winning streak, they’ve given up on touchdown to opposing wide receivers. Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs found the end zone in Week 7, but since then the only receiving touchdowns have been hauled in by tight ends.
