Injuries and poor play are certainly mounting for the Houston Texans. But they play the Indianapolis Colts Thursday night and there just has to be points to be had by someone out there on the Texans, right?

That someone could be tight end Joel Dreessen, and he might be the only player on the Texans you can start besides stud running back Arian Foster.

Will the Colts Donald Brown Do Anything on Thursday Night?

Can the Indy running back get you ten points against the Texans?

What do you want out of Donald Brown to consider the Indianapolis Colts running back a decent flex play against the Houston Texans in Week 16?

If it’s 10 points, then Brown could get you right at that number — and you might have to wait the entire 60 minutes for it to happen. There are two problems in playing Brown Thursday night: 1.) The Texans having allowed the lead ball carrier to cross the goal line just twice since Week 4. 2.) Brown’s own teammate, Joseph Addai.

Continue to ride the hot Redskins rookie RB Roy Helu

He continues to get it done since coach Mike Shanahan made the correct call and decided to let the rookie be the main ball carrier in Washington. Now he gets a Giants defense that has been more than friendly over the past few weeks to not only running backs but wide receivers as well.

Good news for Helu owners, he can be both for you.

Helu has 73 carries for 334 yards and 13 receptions and 102 yards over the last three weeks. That’s an average of 24.3 carries for 111.3 yards to go with 4.3 catches for 34.0 yards and two TD in just the last three weeks.

This is not what you like to write about a player you helped project as a top-10 fantasy pick in Athlon Sports’ 2011 fantasy football magazine, but Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall can’t even be considered a Flex1 against the San Francisco 49ers Monday night.

Dez Bryant Will Be the Odd Man Out Against Bucs; Laurent Robinson a Strong Play

Who is the fantasy odd man out for the Dallas Cowboys when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Week 15 game Saturday night?

Odds are it is receiver Dez Bryant.

In the year of “Gotta Eat,” not everyone can be fed on this Cowboys team despite the deliciously appetizing meal the Bucs statistically seem ready to serve up.

Don't Expect Much From Maurice Jones Drew Against the Falcons

MJD will be the focus of Atlanta's defense. And that's not good for fantasy owners
