Despite a three-game losing skid, the Texans' passing attack has been reinvigorated by Case Keenum. The former Houston Cougars QB has six TD passes in his last two games. With his rise, the trickle-down economy of fantasy football is worth monitoring for a guy like Hopkins. He saw 11 targets last week, catching six of them for 69 yards. While the rookie has been good (but not great) all year, this could be a time of the year where he really turns it on. Houston is playing from behind most weeks, which leads to a lot more passing. Hopkins now has 17 targets in his last two games -- his highest totals since Week 2, back when fantasy owners first jumped on waivers to grab him. If Keenum could find him for one TD, he'd make the leap into becoming a rosterable commodity.

Working under the assumption that Jermaine Gresham will remain out in Week 11, Eifert is a great free agent addition. Last week, Gresham was out and Eifert saw 10 targets (although he only caught three of them for 55 yards). The bottom line is he never had so many targets in previous weeks and all those looks give him opportunities to make plays. The rookie has a bright future even if his value is currently limited. This will be Eifert's second game against Cleveland and he should have learned a lot since then, which he can apply this time around. As long as Gresham sits, Eifert has fringe TE1 upside at a minimum.
