Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

The Texans placed TE Ryan Griffin on Injured Reserve.

Griffin has unfortunately been dealing with concussions this season, and now he's out for the year. The 27-year-old tight end had 13 receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown in his six games this season. Concussions are obviously no joke, so hopefully Griffin starts feeling better soon and is 100% for next year.

Ryan Griffin is out with a concussion.

Griffin was questionable to return, but he presumably did not pass concussion protocol. He didn't have any reception before leaving. Griffin has dealt with concussion issues throughout the year, so this might be a length absence. Hopefully Griffin is OK.

Ryan Griffin gets two targets in Week 8.

He caught one pass for ten yards against the Seahawks. Griffin isn't a recommended fantasy option right now, as he has a low floor.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin caught three passes for 52 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Griffin was a recommended streaming option in a tremendous matchup, and he put in a solid effort for fantasy owners, especially with Houston playing ahead all game. He can go back to the waiver wire heading into a matchup with the Seahawks next Sunday.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday night's loss to Kansas City.

Griffin split time at tight end with Stephen Anderson, who led the team with 63 receiving yards. The pair get a tremendous matchup against the Browns next Sunday, and Griffin is probably the better fantasy option.

Ryan Griffin catches two passes in Week 4.

He was targeted five times, but only gained 13 yards on his two receptions. Griffin will have some good weeks, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin scores in Week 3 loss.

The Texans tight end played very well against the Pats after missing Week 2 with a concussion, grabbing five of six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown. The score came late in the game, as he made a nice catch on a beautiful back-shoulder throw from Deshaun Watson to the back of the end zone. Griffin and Watson look to have a nice connection based off this game, so Griffin is worth a look if you're struggling at tight end.

Ryan Griffin passed concussion protocol.

He missed last Thursday's game wit ha concussion, but Griffin was a full participant in today's practice and is ready to go for Sunday against New England, barring a setback. Griffin will be the top tight end option for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, but there are probably better fantasy options available.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) will not play in Week 2.

The Texans have four guys with concussions, and they've all been ruled out for tomorrow night's game against the Bengals. Fellow tight end Stephen Anderson is also out with a concussion, and starter C.J. Fiedorowicz is on IR with his concussion. The Texans have to call up Evan Baylis from the practice squad, and they'll probably sign (or trade for) someone for tomorrow night's game as well. This is less than ideal for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson's first start.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin re-signs with Texans for three years, according to John McClain.

Griffin came on strong towards the end of the season for Houston, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option next season behind C.J. Fiedorowicz.

Ryan Griffin gets involved early for Houston.

Griffin had three receptions for 29 yards, with them all coming early in the game. Brock Osweiler seemed comfortable throwing to his tight ends and will likely do the same next weekend.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin caught eight-of-eight targets in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Griffin took advantage of his opportunity with C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) out of the lineup and finished second on the team with 85 yards. If Fiedorowicz is back, Griffin will not be a fantasy option on Christmas Eve against the Bengals, but he would be a TE1 option if he gets another start.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin scores in Texans' L.

Griffin had four catches for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Packers. Griffin also lost a fumble. He's been very involved for a second string tight end, but is not a good fantasy option.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin caught four of five targets for 36 yards in Sunday's loss.

He is not a realistic fantasy option behind C.J. Fiedorowicz for targets in a bad Houston offense.

Ryan Griffin | Texans TE

Ryan Griffin secures one of the Texans' two touchdowns in win over Jaguars.

Griffin had three catches for seven yards and the touchdown. Griffin has 27 catches on the year and has been a contributor for Houston, but he's not a fantasy option at the moment.
