|Add Ryan Griffin’s name to the list of uninspiring Houston tight ends of recent years. Griffin’s progress has been slowed by an Achilles injury but he is supposedly healthy for training camp. He has yet to break the 20-reception mark or play in ten or more games since joining the league in 2013. Adding less optimism for fantasy owners is the team’s decision to continue to work C.J. Fiedorwicz into the rotation. Undrafted free agent rookie Stephen Anderson has impressed the coaching staff while working as the “move” tight end and may find his way onto to the roster as well. There isn’t much to like about a potential committee approach on a team that barely uses the position on offense. This is a situation to avoid; even when sifting through TE2 options.

Texans UDFA boasts 4.58 speed, 38-inch vertical

|During the NFL draft, TE Stephen Anderson got passed over despite a series of impressive workouts and a productive collegiate career. Anderson capitalized on the absence of veteran TE C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin to take on a heavy workload during offseason practices. Although undersized at 6-2, 230 pounds, the former wide receiver has 4.58 speed in the 40-yard dash and a 38-inch vertical leap.
"He's come out and really put in a great effort every day. He's picked up things very quickly and, on top of that, he's got great athleticism. He's got good hands," Texans TE coach John Perry said. (Houston Chronicle)|
FFToday's Take: The Texans finished second-to-last in fantasy points at the tight end position in 2015, so they'll gladly welcome a player with Anderson's athleticism. The UDFA still has some work to do to secure a roster spot and rookie tight ends are notorious for not producing as rookies, so redraft owners can probably sit tight. Dynasty owners should take note, however, as Anderson checks a lot of boxes in regards to becoming a worthwhile fantasy tight end down the road.
