Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Clowney began camp on the Texans' PUP list following microfracture surgery on his right knee in December. That procedure came with a nine-month recovery timetable, so Clowney's return to action Monday is right on schedule. Still, given his time out, the former No. 1 overall pick is expected to be eased into drills, with hopes of potentially being cleared to play in Week 1 of the regular season.
Head coach Bill O'Brien is optimistic that Clowney (knee) could play in Houston's season opener Sept. 13 against the Chiefs, the Texans' official site reports.

2014

It's crucial that IDP drafters double-check the positional designation their league gives to Clowney, as he might be listed as an LB rather than a DL, but if he secures DL eligibility he'll be a borderline DL1 consideration. The Texans didn't pick Clowney first overall to bring him along slowly, so he'll start opposite Whitney Mercilus at 3-4 OLB, moving to DE in nickel formations. Clowney is like the Calvin Johnson of defensive end prospects, and he'll have the opportunity to post big numbers immediately with offenses primarily concerned with J.J. Watt. Clowney has 4.5 speed at 6-5, 266 pounds and should contend for a Pro Bowl spot immediately. Bone spurs in his right foot are the only real concern to his productivity.
