RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

A sprained MCL in Week 1 cost Ryan the next seven games. He returned Week 10 but averaged fewer than four targets a game. Still, it was enough to lead the team's TE in catches. At 6-6, 254, it's perhaps concerning he garnered only three red-zone looks, just one inside the 10 (which he converted). Griffin is the pass-catching TE to C.J. Fiedorowicz's blocking role, but targets might be difficult to come by this season. Tight end has not figured prominently into coach Bill O'Brien's Houston offenses, and, this year, untested QB Brock Osweiler is at the helm. Then there's target-hog DeAndre Hopkins and first-round pick WR Will Fuller. Health, though, is the biggest factor. Griffin missed OTAs with an Achilles injury. He's expected to be healthy for camp, but he has enough working against him without an injury to worry about.

2015

Griffin is the second tight end on the depth chart behind Garrett Graham. He's had a slow start to training camp due to an undisclosed injury, so there hasn't been much to observe. When healthy, he's a reliable pass-catching tight end but his position was not targeted much in head coach Bill O'Brien's first season.

2014

With Owen Daniels' departure to Baltimore, Griffin moves up in Houston's tight-end pecking order. Though Garrett Graham is likely the most reliable receiving tight-end option for the Texans, Griffin proved that he was a capable pass catcher when both Daniels and Graham were sidelined at times last year. Houston drafted C.J. Fiedorowicz, widely considered the best blocking tight end in this year's draft, in the third round, but with new coach Bill O'Brien's penchant for two-TE sets, Griffin could still provide decent production, particularly in the red zone given his 6-6, 250 frame.

2013

Griffin, a sixth-round draft pick in 2013 out of Connecticut, is part of the solution to replace James Casey. The Texans currently have Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham heading the depth chart at the tight end, but they drafted Griffin, signed free agent Adam Schiltz and already have Phillip Supernaw on the roster. Griffin was a productive receiver at Connecticut and, at this point, is considered more of a receiving tight end than a blocking one. If he can develop his run-blocking technique, he'll have a chance to make the roster.
