Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell caught another touchdown in the team's 24-21 loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. The rookie wideout totaled his seventh score of the year midway through the second quarter on a seven-yard pass from quarterback C.J. Stroud. The touchdown marked the fourth straight game that Dell has crossed the goal line. For the contest, he totaled five catches for 50 yards and one touchdown. The young wideout continues to be a fantasy star, and he'll look to continue his impressive rookie season next week at home against the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell has been a fantasy star lately and will look to continue that in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Over the past three weeks, Dell has finished as the WR1, WR11, and WR3 in half-PPR formats in fantasy since Week 9. During that span, the rookie has 20 catches for 319 yards and four touchdowns. It appears Dell and C.J. Stroud have developed a great connection on the field, which has been on display all season. With the way the 24-year-old has played as of late, he is a must-start in fantasy. Dell also totaled 145 yards and a touchdown earlier in the season against the Jaguars.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell totaled a career-high 149 receiving yards in the team's 21-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. Dell continues to put together an excellent rookie season, and Sunday might have been the best performance of his short career. He caught a career-high eight passes for 149 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' victory. The wideout reeled in his sixth score of the year late in the second quarter on a spectacular grab to extend Houston's lead before the half. Dell will look to continue his strong play next week at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell has been a reliable fantasy starter in his first year, and that consistency should continue in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals. Dell has had to step up over the past two weeks due to the injuries of Nico Collins (calf) and Robert Woods (foot). But with both players active for Sunday, the rookie's fantasy value takes a slight hit. Still, he should provide enough value to be flex-worthy, especially with Noah Brown (knee) questionable to play. The matchup is also a great one for the young wideout in a game that is the highest over/under of the week (48.5).

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell continued to impress in the team's 30-27 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10. Dell caught six passes for 56 yards and one touchdown while seeing a career-high 14 targets in the contest. Rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud connected with the young wideout early in the second quarter on a six-yard score, marking his third touchdown over the past two games. With Nico Collins (calf) out, the rookie wideout was Stroud's favorite target on Sunday. If Collins misses again in Week 11, Dell would be a must-start at home against the Arizona Cardinals.
Nov 12, 2023 10:30 PM EST
Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell could see a lot more opportunities in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Dell is already coming off the best game of his career, where he caught six passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns. Now, quarterback C.J. Stroud could lean on the rookie even more this weekend with wide receiver Nico Collins (calf) already ruled out. In a game that is the second-highest over/under (47) of the week, the Texans will have to throw plenty to keep up with the Bengals high-powered offense. That is great news for Dell, who should see plenty of targets in Week 10. He's a strong WR2 this weekend.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell exploded for two touchdowns in the team's 39-37 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9. It's taken Dell some time to get going again following his Week 5 concussion. But the rookie put together his best performance of his young career on Sunday, catching six passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns. The 24-year-old wideout caught a 26-yard pass in the final seconds to get Houston within striking distance before quarterback C.J. Stroud connected with Dell for the game-winning score. He'll look to continue his strong rookie season next week on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Nov 5, 2023 10:45 PM EST
Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell returned from a concussion in Week 8 but failed to do much in the contest. In Week 9, Dell is a high-boom, high-bust play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since the rookie totaled a career-high 145 receiving yards in Week 3, he has followed it up with three rough performances. He has just seven catches for 89 yards combined in those games. However, facing a Buccaneers secondary that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points per game to wide receivers is good news for Dell. With four teams on bye in Week 9, the rookie is a flex option this weekend.

Following his one-game absence, Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell returned from a concussion in the team's 15-13 loss against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8. The rookie caught three passes for 16 yards while also running three times for 15 yards. Dell was used in many ways on Sunday, but it didn't correlate to much success. With quarterback C.J. Stroud struggling through the air, the 24-year-old wideout finished with a modest line. Dell and the Texans offense will look to get back on track next week at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Oct 29, 2023 11:12 PM EST
Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) was able to get through a full practice session on Thursday. This marks the second straight day that Dell has been able to get in a full session. That is a great sign heading into the Week 8 matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Dell appears to be on track to return this week which would be the first time he has been on the field since Week 5. The 23-year-old should be a solid flex play, assuming he's available for this game.
Oct 26, 2023 9:11 PM EST
Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) was a full participant in the team's practice on Wednesday. The rookie wideout missed Week 6 as he dealt with the concussion he suffered in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons. But he appears on track to make his return this weekend following the Texans' bye. Dell has been one of Houston's most electrifying playmakers this season, totaling 19 catches for 324 yards and two touchdowns through five games. The 23-year-old will be a solid flex play in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.
Oct 26, 2023 12:35 AM EST
Houston Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans said that rookie wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) returned to practice on Monday. "It's big to have Tank back. He's a guy we can count on for a big play," Ryans said. Dell was unavailable for the team's Week 6 win over the New Orleans Saints, but he had the Week 7 bye to rest up and it appears he'll have a pretty good shot to return this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The 23-year-old will have three more days to practice from Wednesday through Friday as he looks to clear the league's concussion protocol. Dell has 19 receptions for 324 yards and two touchdowns and is an intriguing deep-league flex upside play when healthy. If Dell returns in Week 8, he should return to three-wide sets alongside Nico Collins and Robert Woods.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell (head) is officially inactive for Week 6 versus the New Orleans Saints. The rookie had been listed as questionable but was unable to clear concussion protocol in time for kickoff. Dell has appeared in five games this season, catching 19 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns.

Oct 15, 2023 8:30 AM EST
Houston Texans 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.
Oct 13, 2023 4:52 PM EST
Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. Dell is making progress from a head injury he suffered in the Week 5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but he's not expected to play this weekend against the New Orleans Saints. The Texans have their bye in Week 7, so Dell will have extra to heal up before a Week 8 matchup on the road in Carolina against the Panthers if he's inactive this weekend. Robert Woods (ribs) is also banged up and could be questionable to play in Week 6, so John Metchie III and Xavier Hutchinson could have bigger roles against New Orleans behind Nico Collins. Dell has 19 catches for 324 yards and two touchdowns on 28 targets in his first five NFL games. He has intriguing long-term upside with quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) is making progress in his recovery from a concussion. However, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston, he is not expected to play in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. The rookie second-rounder has been a surprise this season, racking up 324 yards and two touchdowns on 19 receptions through five weeks. He has at least 57 receiving yards in three of his five games but unfortunately suffered the injury in the Week 5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. If he's out for Week 6, Nico Collins and Robert Woods should see even more targets. Both Woods (40) and Collins (26) are among the top 27 pass-catchers in total targets this season. Collins has WR1 upside, while Woods could be a high-floor flex play in PPR formats.
Oct 11, 2023 2:28 PM EST
Houston Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans said on Monday that wide receiver Tank Dell (concussion) is officially in the league's concussion protocol, per Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle. Dell exited Week 5's 21-19 loss to the Atlanta Falcons during the second quarter with a concussion, posting three catches on four targets for 57 yards before his day ended. The third-round rookie is off to a quick start in Year 1, hauling in 19-of-28 passes for 324 yards (17.1 YPR) and two touchdowns over five games. Dell has six days to pass protocol before Week 6's meeting with the New Orleans Saints, but fantasy managers should be exploring FLEX alternatives ahead of time. Nico Collins would solidify himself as quarterback C.J. Stroud's top target while veterans Dalton Schultz and Robert Woods help fill Dell's void if he isn't cleared.
Oct 10, 2023 12:17 AM EST
Houston Texans wide receiver Tank Dell (head) has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not return in Week 5 versus the Atlanta Falcons. He finishes the game with three catches for 57 yards. The injury costs Houston one of its top receivers and will result in Robert Woods and John Metchie III earning more reps behind Nico Collins. It's too early to tell whether Dell will be able to clear concussion protocol before next Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.
Oct 8, 2023 3:32 PM EST
Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Tank Dell will look to get back on track in a Week 5 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Dell was extremely quiet in the team's 30-6 blowout win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, catching just one pass for 16 yards. However, before Week 4, Dell was coming off back-to-back 20-plus point PPR fantasy performances. With the Texans' offense averaging 29 points per game over the past three weeks, Dell could be in for a bounce-back fantasy day. He's a solid flex option in 12-plus team leagues.
