Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the New England Patriots His four targets were double that of Houston's usual number-two receiver, Will Fuller, though it's hard to imagine that being a trend that continues. Stills should still be treated as a risky third receiver on an offense that normally relies heavily on their top two guys.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills caught three of his four targets 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 versus the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Spin: Stills' lone empty target was a bad drop, but his TD catch was a 35-yard dime from Deshaun Watson. The former Miami Dolphin wasn't able to do much during Will Fuller's multi-week absence, but there's no question he is a quality third receiver in a very good offense. With that said, he's too inconsistent for owners to trust with the fantasy playoffs beginning in most leagues in Week 14.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills shouldn't be considered when putting together your fantasy lineups in Week 13. Coming off a one-catch effort against the Colts, Stills is the third receiver on a team that funnels passes to their top two guys, and he has a horrible matchup against the NFL's best defense, the New England Patriots. Maybe if Will Fuller (hamstring) is a surprise inactive you start Stills in 14-team leagues, but otherwise you should be looking elsewhere.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills recorded just one catch for six yards during the Thursday night win over the Indianapolis Colts. Stills logged his worst performance of the year and was a victim from a production standpoint by the return of Will Fuller (hamstring), who missed the team's previous three games. He likely has a few more decent performances left in the tank between now and the end of the season, but his potential will continue to be relegated by Fuller's presence in the lineup moving ahead.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills caught one pass for six yards in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Spin: Stills had essentially served as the team's No. 2 receiver during Will Fuller's absence, but with Fuller back in action Thursday night Stills had a very small role. As long as Fuller is healthy, Stills isn't worth owning.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills had a good game when the Texans and Colts met earlier this year, catching four passes for 105 yards, but that only happened because a Will Fuller hamstring injury thrust Stills into a larger role. This week, Fuller is a game-time decision with that hamstring injury, which means playing Stills in fantasy should also be a game-time decision: if Fuller's out, Stills has value as an upside WR4 option, but if Fuller plays, Stills' role will be reduced too much to play him.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills caught four of his seven targets in Houston's Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, finishing with just 27 yards. The entire Texans offense was off in this game, so the low numbers aren't necessarily a reflection on Stills. Meanwhile, Stills having fantasy value moving forward will depend on the health of Will Fuller, as Fuller's return will push Stills back into a tertiary role in Houston's receiving corps. If Stills is the number-two guy when Houston faces the Colts on Thursday, he'll have some flex appeal in deeper leagues.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills registered four grabs for 27 on seven targets in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Spin: Stills will be looking to bounce back in Week 12 against the Colts on Thursday night. He had four grabs for a season-best 105 yards in Week 7 in Indianapolis in the first meeting. Treat Still as more of a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills should run more routes out of the slot this week, assuming Will Fuller is back in action Sunday at Baltimore. Fuller returned to practice on a limited basis, and while he's not been cleared to play yet, he seems on the right track. Stills has no more than six targets in a game this season, and if Fuller returns, there will be even fewer targets to go around. The saving grace for Stills is that this game has a very high projected point total, and Stills is always capable of making one big play to put up fantasy production. Start Stills as a WR3 with more upside if Fuller is ruled out.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills caught four passes for 52 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He was targeted four times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Stills has been targeted at least five times in three of the last five games and will continue to see an increased role while Will Fuller is sidelined. He will have a tough matchup in Week 11 and may only be a flex option in deeper leagues.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills had one impressive catch early on, but was mostly quiet in Houston's Week 9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, catching all four of his targets for 52 yards. Stills is taking a clear backseat to DeAndre Hopkins in Houston's receiving game, and with Will Fuller (hamstring) potentially returning after the bye week, it's hard to see Stills having a role that makes him a viable fantasy option.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills should remain Houston's number-two receiver with Will Fuller (hamstring) sidelined for Sunday's meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but Stills is far from a safe fantasy option. The Jaguars have a solid defensive unit, and Stills has been used inconsistently since joining the Texans. He led all position players in snaps in Week 8, for instance, but had just three catches for 22 yards. Stills has big play ability, but the Texans spread the ball around to a variety of options, making it tough to trust Stills. If you need the upside and don't value consistency, he's got some appeal as a flex play.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.
Fantasy Spin: Stills probably will see a few more targets in the passing game with Will Fuller sidelined and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring), CB Lonnie Johnson (concussion), OL Greg Mancz (concussion), TE Tashaun Gipson (back, rest) and CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Nov. 1, and have been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. OT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. OL Tytus Howard (knee) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday and is also listed as questionable. CB Gareon Conley (hamstring), WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb), LB Dylan Cole (knee), OT Roderick Johnson (neck), RB Taiwan Jones (hip), CB Johnathan Joseph (neck), S A.J. Moore (knee), QB Deshaun Watson (eye), LS Jonathan Weeks (ankle), DE Charles Omenihu (knee) and WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Fantasy Spin: Stills is coming off a disappointing Week 8 performance but has been targeted 10 times over the last two games. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game while Will Fuller is out and can be a flex option in some leagues.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills is averaging 19.5 yards per catch heading into a Week 8 matchup with the Oakland Raiders, and the Raiders are allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season.
Fantasy Spin: Stills is coming off a 105-yard effort in Week 7, and with Will Fuller out of the picture, he should once again be the mean deep threat for the passing attack. He's a high-upside flex play against Oakland.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (ankle, hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Stills will be joining the starting lineup because of the Will Fuller injury and should see a solid amount of targets. He is coming off a terrific Week 7 performance and can be at least a flex option in leagues.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring), OL Tytus Howard (knee) and OL Greg Mancz (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 8 versus the Oakland Raiders. S Tashaun Gipson (back, hamstring, wrist), OT Roderick Johnson (neck), CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring, neck) and CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable. CB Gareon Conley (rest) was limited Friday but has been removed from the injury report. LB Dylan Cole (hamstring, knee), RB Taiwan Jones (hip), LS Jonathan Weeks (ankle), S A.J. Moore (knee), S Justin Reid (shoulder) and WR Kenny Stills (ankle, hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills is expected to operate as Houston's second outside receiver with Will Fuller (hamstring) sidelined. Against a Raiders Defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, Stills makes for an intriguing flex option. Last week, Stills returned from his own hamstring injury, playing 94 percent of Houston's snaps and grabbing four of his five targets for 105 yards. Stills might not have quite the boom potential as Fuller when it comes to having the pure speed to outrun the defense, but he's still quick and capable of making big plays. There's downside, but the upside is enough to justify playing him in Week 8.
Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (ankle/hamstring) remained a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Fantasy Spin: Stills stands to be a significant part of the offense with WR Will Fuller expected to miss multiple games. He's a good flex play in all formats.
