Brandon Stokley is probable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Stokley (shoulder) practiced all week and is probable for the game against the Texans.

Analysis: Stokley has been one of Peyton Manning's favorite targets in zone coverages and he'll hold some fantasy value when the Broncos have a favorable matchup. This week, however, the Broncos don't figure to have much luck against the Texans. Stokley serves as nothing more than a desperate play in 16-team PPR leagues and he won't offer much upside. In the unlikely event 36-year-old receivers misses the game, Jacob Tamme could become a high-end TE2 for fantasy owners that are in a bind.
