Kevin Walter is listed as probable, and is expected to play in Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and the Buffalo Bills, according to the Texans' official site. Walter was limited in practice Thursday due to an illness. Whatever the illness was, it didn't last much more than 24 hours. He was back in practice Friday as a full participant.
Walter had his best game of the year just before the Texans' Week 8 bye, catching four passes for 74 yards and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens. On the year, he has 19 catches for 279 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: Walter will be on the field when Matt Schaub and the Texans' offense take on a Bills secondary that has given up 14 touchdowns with just six interceptions on the season. Though he is just third on the team with 30 targets this season, he could be more productive than usual against a bad defense.
Still, Walter isn't worth starting as anything more than a possible Flex option in standard leagues. You may find yourself desperate due to the bye week or injuries, in which case Walter is a perfectly viable option. Otherwise, he is probably better left on the bench.
