How to handle Texans WR vs. Colts

Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton and Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph sure didn't think it was a meaningless game.

Both the Colts and Houston Texans are wrapping up seasons that have been marred by injuries to major players. Tom Savage started that game for the Texans, but he is also now injured, and it is likely that the Texans will start T.J. Yates at quarterback against the Colts in this game.

With that, we give you our PFF-exclusive takeaways from the contest for each team.

The 83rd NFL Draft will take place on April 26-28 at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, marking the first time in history that it will be held at an NFL stadium. He finished with just 114 passing yards and one touchdown. The Texans amassed a measly 227 yards, which won't win you many National Football League games. The Texans have made up for their lowly pass defense with a strong run defense that ranks 12th league wide, which is surprising with the players they have missed for the majority of the season in JJ Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Brian Cushing. If Miller wants to crack 1000 rushing yards on the season, he will need to get 149 yards against the Colts, which seems unlikely unless he is able to break out a couple big gains on the ground. The major injury for the Texans in this game is star wideout Deandre Hopkins, who will be missing his first game of the season. Texans' coach Bill O'Brien called him a game-time decision on Thursday.

Despite the injuries, Fuller had a career-high seven touchdown receptions this year to go along with 406 receiving yards in nine games prior to Week 17.

Despite playing in a depleted offense with myriad quarterback issues, Hopkins has still been one of the best players in fantasy football this season.
