The Houston Texans have ruled out standout rookie wide receiver Tank Dell for Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. 

With Dell out, Robert Woods and Nico Collins should see expanded roles in Week 6, as well as tight end Dalton Schultz.

Best Houston Texans prop bet if Tank Dell misses Week 6

Dalton Schultz anytime touchdown scorer

Dalton Schultz was a big signing for the Texans this offseason, and he may finally be coming along in this offense. 

Last week, the Texans tight end came alive for a season-high seven catches and 65 yards in Week 5. The Texans need to get Schultz going to have a more dynamic attack, and he’s seen a bigger role the past two weeks. 

With Dell out, there are more targets to go around in a high-powered passing offense. He’s worth a shot at these odds.
