Noah Brown, WR, Houston Texans

After missing the previous two games with a knee injury, Brown had a quiet return in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos (zero catches on two targets). But he did play 55 snaps (81 percent), and Tank Dell's season-ending fractured fibula opens the door for Brown to see the kind of target volume he did before being injured.

In Week 9, Brown had six catches for 153 yards and a touchdown. And he showed that wasn't just a one-off big game with seven catches for 172 yards in Week 10. The game before that, he topped 50 yards.

It's a mix of good (Tennessee Titans, Week 15 and 17) and tough (New York Jets, Week 14; Cleveland Browns, Week 16) for Brown over the next four weeks. In line to be significant part of a pass-happy Texans' offense with Dell out, he is worth adding this week as a WR3/flex option with upside.
