  • Tank Dell Considered Questionable For Week 6

    Headshot for Nico Collins

    Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) was a limited participant during Friday's practice. That being said, Dell is considered as questionable for the Week 6 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. This is bad timing with fellow wideout Robert Woods (ribs) also considered as questionable for this game. The fact Dell hasn't cleared concussion protocol yet is not a good sign heading into Sunday. His absence would mean an increased workload for Nico Collins, John Metchie III, and Xavier Hutchinson for Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should check back later in the weekend for another update on Dell.

  • John Metchie III Expected To Play In Week 5

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (illness) is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Metchie had been listed as questionable but seemed likely to play after practicing in full on Friday. However, the young receiver is not on the fantasy radar as he remains behind Nico Collins, Tank Dell, and Robert Woods in the pecking order.

  • John Metchie III Is Questionable For Week 5

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie (illness) is being listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons. The 23-year-old missed Thursday's practice with an illness but was able to get in a full session on Friday and is questionable for Week 5. It sounds like Metchie III is on the road to recovery, barring any setbacks, and should be good to go for Week 5. He's not on the fantasy radar, though, as he's way down the Texans' wide receiver target pecking order behind Nico Collins, Tank Dell, and Robert Woods. He's caught 4-of-5 targets for 52 scoreless yards through three games so far this season.

  • John Metchie III Absent With Illness Thursday

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (illness) didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness. The late setback puts Metchie's Week 5 status against the Atlanta Falcons in question. The 23-year-old missed the season opener with a hamstring injury and has fallen way behind on the depth chart to Nico Collins and Tank Dell. We'll see if Metchie feels better on Friday, as he'll likely need to pick up at least a limited session to instill confidence regarding his availability on Sunday. Veteran Robert Woods' Week 5 fantasy outlook would slightly brighten as a WR4, considering he drew 10 targets in Houston's Week 1 loss that Metchie missed. The second-round rookie has four catches (five targets) for 52 yards in 2023.

  • John Metchie III Set To Make NFL Debut Sunday

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (hamstring) was upgraded to a full practice participant on Friday and was removed from the Week 2 injury report as a result. After missing all of his rookie season due to leukemia and a torn ACL, Metchie's story of perseverance will see him active for the first game of his NFL career this weekend as the team takes on the visiting Indianapolis Colts. The 23-year-old is finally recovered from a hamstring injury he had been dealing with since early in the offseason. Metchie isn't guaranteed to be active or even play at all on Sunday, but it's nice to see that he has managed to put himself in position to see the first offensive snaps of his career. If active, he and rookie Tank Dell will compete for playing time behind Nico Collins and Robert Woods.

  • John Metchie III Limited Again Thursday

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (hamstring) was limited at practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Metchie has had a tough go of it since being drafted last year. He missed all of his rookie campaign in 2022 after being diagnosed with leukemia and recovering from a torn ACL. He dealt with a nagging hamstring injury all offseason and didn't play in the Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, either. The 23-year-old is hoping to make his NFL debut in Week 2 this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, but even if he's active, fantasy managers won't be able to trust him for any production. When he is on the field, he'll be competing for playing time with rookie Tank Dell and Xavier Hutchinson behind Robert Woods and Nico Collins.

  • John Metchie III Returns To Practice

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (hamstring) returned to the practice field in a limited capacity on Wednesday. The Texans placed receiver Noah Brown (groin) on the short-term Injured Reserve on Wednesday, so over the next four games, Metchie and rookie Tank Dell will have an opportunity for bigger roles in the passing game behind starters Robert Woods and Nico Collins. The 23-year-old Metchie is just trying to be on the active gameday roster for his NFL debut after dealing with a nagging hamstring issue all offseason. Even if he's able to make his debut, Metchie cannot be trusted in starting fantasy lineups. The 23-year-old former second-round pick last year missed all of his rookie season after being diagnosed with leukemia.

  • John Metchie III Ruled Out For Week 1

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (hamstring) did not practice this week and has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game versus the Baltimore Ravens. It's been an emotionally frustrating start to Metchie's career after he tore his ACL and was diagnosed with Leukemia last season, stripping him of his rookie campaign. Now, his NFL debut is once again delayed as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Fantasy managers can leave Metchie on waivers.

  • John Metchie III Sits Out Of First Practice

    Headshot for John Metchie

    Houston Texans wide receiver John Metchie III (hamstring) was unable to take part in the team's first official practice of the 2023 regular season on Wednesday. Metchie just has had terrible luck with injuries early in his NFL career after missing all of his rookie campaign in 2022 due to a torn ACL and leukemia. The 23-year-old pass-catcher is now trying to fight back from a hamstring injury that has plagued him since May. It's highly unlikely that we'll see him active for the Week 1 regular season opener for Houston this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Fantasy managers can leave Metchie to the waiver wire in most leagues for now.
