Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is intent on winning the starting job, especially in the wake of the news that team owner Bob McNair has reportedly made it very clear to general manager Rick Smith and head coach Bill O'Brien that the Texans replace Brian Hoyer.
Fantasy Tip: There seems to be some thought that Savage will compete with a first- or second-round rookie for the starting job in training camp. The loser of that competition would then fall behind Hoyer, who the Texans seem to like in a backup role. Even in O'Brien's quarterback-friendly system, Savage or the yet-to-be-named rookie would likely be little more than a low-end QB2 at best in 2016.

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer is unlikely to begin next season as the starter. Team owner Bob McNair has all but publicly demanded general manager Rick Smith and head coach Bill O'Brien replace the journeyman.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer melted down in the Texans' playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, which was probably the final straw for McNair. Houston has been linked to almost every potential free-agent quarterback - such as Robert Griffin III - to most of the top signal-callers available in the draft that could be on the board at pick No. 22, such as Memphis' Paxton Lynch or Michigan State's Connor Cook. Either way, fantasy owners should expect Hoyer to holding a clipboard for most of 2016.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith will work with each other for a third straight year in 2016, according to owner Bob McNair. "I see no reason they (Smith and O'Brien) can't (work together). They've been working together. They're bright, and they're independent and they express their opinions," McNair said.

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith said the team will switch from grass to artificial turf at NRG Stadium the rest of the season.
Fantasy Tip: DeAndre Hopkins could benefit in the long run as receivers' speed is more consistent on turf than in grass that could break away under them. Hopkins ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) is still a good option on FantasyScore at Carolina this week.
