2019 Fantasy Outlook
Higdon, an undrafted rookie free agent, had his roster chances improve after preseason Week 3 when Lamar Miller suffered a season-ending knee injury. Duke Johnson moves to the top of the depth chart. Among the group of backs competing to back up Johnson, Higdon had the most carries during preseason games, but the Texans added a more proven back (Carlos Hyde) and Higdon was released following the final preseason game.

September 3, 2019
Higdon was signed to the Houston's practice squad.
ANALYSIS
Higdon was the Texans' top ball carrier in terms of attempts during the preseason, but Lamar Miller's injury created a need to add more proven backs to the mix. Hence, the Texans will ride Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde as their top two backs with Buddy Howell and Taiwan Jones filling out the depth chart.
