Upgraded to full Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-14

Schultz (thigh) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Following a limited session Wednesday, Schultz appears ready to roll for Sunday's Week 2 date with the Colts. The veteran tight end played 81% of the offensive snaps last week against the Ravens but turned four targets into two catches for four yards. His playing time keeps him in the fantasy mix at a shallow position.

Opens week with limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-13

Schultz (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

After a disappointing Texans debut in which he picked up only four yards, Schultz's Week 2 availability could be in question. The fact that he at least practiced in some capacity is an encouraging sign, but the starting tight end's practice participation will be worth monitoring before the Texans take on the Colts on Sunday.

Leads TEs in snaps

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Schultz caught two of four targets for four yards in Sunday's 25-9 loss to Baltimore in Week 1.

Schultz had a quiet day, but he led Houston's tight ends in snaps by a wide margin. He was on the field for 62 offensive snaps, compared to 22 for Teagan Quitoriano and zero for Brevin Jordan, who played special teams only. Quarterback C.J. Stroud heavily favored wideouts in terms of targets, but Schultz is the top tight end on the team.

Two catches Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-20

Schultz caught two of three targets for 10 yards in Saturday's 28-3 preseason loss to the Dolphins.

Schultz appears to be over any issue with his ribs after playing in Houston's first two preseason contests. All three targets were from projected starting quarterback C.J. Stroud, including a fourth-down incompletion in the red zone. Stroud showed progress from his performance in Preseason Week 1, including his quick thinking under pressure on a six-yard completion to Schultz on Houston's lone scoring drive.

Makes exhibition appearance

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-19

Schultz (ribs) had two receptions on three targets for 10 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Miami.

Fantasy managers will be relieved to see Schultz get into an exhibition contest after dealing with a rib injury out of camp. The 27-year-old signed a one-year deal to move across the state and start for the Texans after four seasons with the Cowboys. With little competition for targets at tight end in Houston, Schultz could see his usage jump -- along with his fantasy value -- from his time in Dallas. Expect the receiving threat to be one of rookie C.J. Stroud's favorite targets this upcoming season.

Returns to practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-06

Schultz (ribs) was back on the practice field Friday, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Schultz missed time last week, but he's back to lead the tight end group.

Not practicing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-03

Schultz (ribs) isn't practicing Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Schultz has been out since Sunday when a rib injury forced him from practice early. Coach DeMeco Ryans didn't make any predictions for a return date but said Monday that he doesn't expect the absence to last long. With fellow tight ends Brevin Jordan (hamstring) and Teagan Quitoriano (undisclosed) also not practicing, the Texans are mostly left with blockers at the position, including veteran journeymen Eric Tomlinson and Nick Vannett.

Dealing with ribs issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-31

Schultz (ribs) exited Sunday's practice early, but coach DeMeco Ryans said Monday that the tight end will "be back out there soon."

Schultz was banged up after taking a shot to the side from fellow free-agent pickup Jimmie Ward in practice. It sounds like the tight end is day-to-day, and it's not a long-term concern. Schultz is expected to compete for the team lead in targets after coming over from the Cowboys in the offseason.
