April 15, 2024
The Lions re-signed Houston as an exclusive rights free agent Monday.
ANALYSIS
Houston is coming off a mostly lost 2023 campaign, as a fractured ankle suffered Week 2 kept him sidelined until Detroit's loss to the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. He impressed as a rookie back in 2022, racking up 8.0 sacks despite suiting up for just seven games, so it makes sense for the Lions to retain Houston and work to continue his development.

IDP Analysis: Week 17 Review
January 3, 2023
James Houston is tied for the league lead among rookies with 7.5 sacks and is a must-add dynasty player wherever he's still available.
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Houston had an up-and-down rookie campaign in 2022, when the sixth-round draft pick earned 134 defensive snaps as a pass-rushing specialist. Although most of Detroit's snaps at linebacker will go to Alex Anzalone and first-round pick Jack Campbell, Houston should still have plenty of chances to get to the quarterback as a rotational piece in 2023.
