Texans | Need to develop more reliable secondary WR

The Houston Texans want to have more reliable targets outside of WR Andre Johnson in the receiving game. Last season, WR Lestar Jean hauled in 50 percent of his targets for catches, while WR DeVier Posey (Achilles') racked up catches on 43 percent of his targets. WR Keshawn Martin managed to catch just 36 percent of his targets.

Fantasy Tip: Someone will need to step up and replace Kevin Walter, who has since moved on to the Tennessee Titans. He was good for a catch rate of 60 percent of his targets. Jean appears to be the most likely candidate to succeed, as he can be a downfield threat and he had a high catch ratio. Martin also showed glimpses of brilliance, but is still rather raw. Posey is making his way back from a torn Achilles' suffered in January, and his timetable remains uncertain. Right now, only Jean and Martin are worth late-round fliers on Draft Day.
