3 Texans are currently in the top 40 in fantasy football average draft position

Fantasy football drafts are heating up with training camp on the horizon, and the Houston Texans offense should be well represented after adding in some firey newcomers. 

Houston’s offensive reached new heights between the duo of Bobby Slowik and quarterback C.J. Stroud, raking top-10 in total yards and passing in 2023.  With the additions of Stefon Diggs and Joe Mixon to elevate the passing attack, fantasy gurus are expecting big things from Stround and Co. in 2024.

Football Guys.com has been a  fantasy football Rolodex of information in the community for years. The website tracks multiple fantasy websites and the average draft position (ADP) for each player and position, creating a composite consensus overall ADP.

Entering the final week before training camp begins, three Texans are in the top 40 overall.

Topping the list is fourth-year receiver Nico Collins, who ranks as high as No. 16 by drafter. After totaling 1,200 yards for the first time in his career, the Texans elected to extend the former Michigan standout on a new three-year, $72.75 million deal.

Collins is currently 20th in fantasy ADP and the 11th overall wide receiver on the rankings.

Diggs, whom the Texans acquired from Buffalo in exchange for a future second-round pick, was next up at No. 28. Despite a drop-off during the final seven games, the 30-year-old comes in as WR16. Even if he’s no longer the All-Pro type of player he once was, Diggs has been good for at least 1,000 yards over the past six seasons between his time with the Vikings and Bills. 

 

Tank Dell might be the steal of drafts after a breakout rookie season. Before suffering a season-ending leg injury in December, Dell was on pace to finish with over 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was staying pace with Rams rookie Puka Nacua and remained the favorite target of Stroud from Weeks 3-12.

Entering the year, Dell is 65th in fantasy ADP and WR27 overall. 

The trio of receivers might all be off the board by the end of Round 3, so adjust your draft schedule when trying to land Diggs, Dell, Collins or any other Texans’ star.
