WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

Tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz has retired from the NFL after four years.

Unfortunately, Fiedorowicz has dealt with concussion issues, which forced his retirement. Fiedorowicz was a third-round selection (65th overall) by the Texans and was their starter for much of his career, starting 42 of 51 games he played. For his career, Fiedorowicz caught 89 passes for 881 yards and six touchdowns, and he also had a postseason touchdown. It's sad to see Fiedorowicz deal with concussion issues and have to retire like this, but we wish him full health and success for whatever he does next.

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) has been placed on Injured Reserve.

This is something you don't want to see, as this is now the second time just this season that Fiedorowicz has been placed on IR because of concussions. His season ends with 14 receptions for 127 yards in five games. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old tight end might need to strongly consider retirement because of these multiple concussions.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz is being evaluated for a concussion.

This is just very unfortunate, as Fiedorowicz has battled concussions over the past couple of years and was even on Injured Reserve this season because of concussions. He had two receptions for 16 yards against the Titans before leaving, and it's probably safe to say he won't be returning to the game.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz catches four passes in Week 12.

Fiedorowicz gained 37 yards on his four receptions (seven targets) in the Monday night loss. He did also have a drop on a pass over the middle in the game. Fiedorowicz isn't a highly-reccomended option in Week 13 versus the Titans.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz catches both targets versus Arizona.

Fiedorowicz gained 18 yards on his two receptions in Week 11. He's someone to keep an eye on, but Fiedorowicz shouldn't be in fantasy lineups until he puts up some better numbers in a game.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz returns after missing seven games.

Fiedorowicz was on Injured Reserve because of a concussion, but he was back for Week 10 and immediately received six targets from Tom Savage. The fourth-year tight end had only two receptions for ten yards, though. He could become a streaming option down the stretch, but Fiedorowicz should probably be out of fantasy lineups against the Cardinals in Week 11.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

The Texans activated TE C.J. Fiedorowicz from IR.

Fiedorowicz was placed on IR because of a concussion, but he's one of the Texans' designated to return players and will be back on the field this year. As a corresponding move, tight end Ryan Griffin was now placed on IR for his concussion issues. Fiedorowicz should be ready to go this Sunday versus the Rams, and he could develop into a very good streaming option down the stretch.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

The Texans placed C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) on IR.

Fiedorowicz suffered the concussion on Sunday against the Jaguars. He already suffered one during training camp, and you have to feel for fourth-year tight end. The Texans could bring him back after eight weeks if they designate him as one of their two return players, but Fiedorowicz long-term health is the most important thing at this point. Backup tight end Ryan Griffin also has a concussion and is unlikely to play on Thursday night, so the Texans are pretty shallow at that position right now.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz was ruled out during the opening game against Jacksonville.

Fiedorowicz had four reception for 46 yards before leaving. He'll now only have a few days to get cleared before Thursday's Week 2 game against the Bengals.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

Texans give C.J. Fiedorowicz three-year contract extension.

This is the third extension Houston has given so far today, and it's a great one for Fiedorowicz—reportedly $22 million over three years, with $10.1 million guaranteed. The third-round pick in the 2014 draft blew away his career highs when he had 54 receptions for 559 yards and four touchdowns last season. Fiedorowicz was a solid fantasy option at times last season, and he should have some startable weeks in 2017.

C.J. Fiedorowicz catches three passes for 35 yards in Divisional Round.

Fiedorowicz had a huge bump in production as a receiver this season, and he will look to build on that heading into next season. He will be an option at the end of fantasy drafts in 2017.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz catches two passes for 35 yards against the Raiders.

Fiedorowicz should get another handful of targets next weekend in the Divisional Round.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz catches touchdown in Week 17.

He had two catches for 12 yards and finishes his regular season with 54 receptions for 559 yards and four touchdowns, more than doubling his career catch total coming into the season.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz gets team-high seven targets in Week 16.

After missing last week with a concussion, Fiedorowicz returned to catch four passes for 42 yards versus the Bengals. Fiedorowicz will be a backend TE1 in Week 17.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) out for Week 15.

The Texans will be without their starting tight end against the Jaguars. Ryan Griffin should get an increased workload with Fiedorowicz out and isn't a bad option at tight end.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught three passes for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Fiedorowicz saw a team-high seven targets as the Texans used a run-heavy approach. Houston should do the same the rest of the season, but Fiedorowicz hurts less than the wideouts do. He's still a low-end TE1.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz leads Texans in targets in Week 13.

Fiedorowicz caught six of nine targets for 44 yards. He remains a back-end TE1 with a pretty good floor for the TE position.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught four of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's loss to San Diego.

Fiedorowicz has shown a stable floor that keeps him in the back-end TE1 discussion; he will be just that in Week 13 versus Green Bay.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz leads Texans in receiving on Monday night.

Fiedorowicz caught six passes for 82 yards. As Jon Gruden said during the game, Fiedorowicz has turned into a nice receiving threat after starting the year as a blocking tight end. After being held scoreless for fantasy purposes in the first three weeks of the season, the Texans tight end in averaing over 7.5 fantasy points per game since then. He will be a back-end TE1 for Week 12.

C.J. Fiedorowicz | Retired TE

C.J. Fiedorowicz has three catches for 26 yards against the Jaguars.

Not a bad stat line considering Brock Owseiler had only 99 yards passing. Fiedorowicz has become a decent option at tight end, and is worth keeping in your lineup in a good matchup against Oakland next week if you are hurting at tight end.
