Fantasy analysis: Houston is switching to a 3-4 alignment under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, and they needed help on the outside to rush the passer.
Reed should battle for a starting job right away and could make an immediate impact in the sacks column. He doesn't have a lot of fantasy value as an individual because he won't be asked to make many tackles, but his addition should help the Texans' team defense for fantasy leagues. They are slowly becoming a sneaky No. 2 unit with upside.
