Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and WR Nate Washington are atop the depth chart right now, head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday, Aug. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be the receiver fantasy owners target early on draft day, but there could be some value with Washington in the middle to late rounds if he can maintain a starting role. You could do worse for your WR4 or flex fantasy option in standard fantasy formats.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallet worked with the first-team offense Sunday, Aug. 2, after QB Brian Hoyer worked with the first-team Saturday, Aug. 1. "Whenever he (Bill O'Brien) feels like someone is ready to be named the starter that's what he'll do, and whatever way it goes, I have really a lot of trust and faith in him," Hoyer said. "Whatever he decides will be best for the team."
Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be a surprise to see both Hoyer and Mallet start games this year, but don't expect either quarterback to be more than a mid-range QB2.

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum picked up a vote of confidence from head coach Bill O'Brien, who called Keenum a "very viable" option at quarterback for 2015.
Fantasy Tip: O'Brien did not specify whether he meant Keenum had a future as backup or as a starter. Keep in mind the Texans have Ryan Mallett as well at quarterback, and Mallett worked well under Tom Brady in New England. Keenum's fantasy value depends entirely on whether he starts or holds a clipboard, so wait and see how this develops.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he won't reveal who the starting quarterback will be this week prior to Sunday's game.
Fantasy Tip: Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum are the likely candidates to start, but neither is worth investing in on FantasyScore unless you want to spend big at other positions.

Despite outside criticism of his frequent injuries, Houston Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney has the strong backing of head coach Bill O'Brien, who said Clowney has simply been unlucky with his knee problems. "This guy has worked extremely hard to recover from injuries," O'Brien said. "And I want to be real clear about this with him, as it relates to us here to the Houston Texans. We think very highly of him. We know he's going to be a really good player... He's had a sports hernia, he's had a concussion and now he's dealing with a knee injury. Those things are not easy in your rookie year."

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) has been ruled out of the team's first preseason game by head coach Bill O'Brien.
Fantasy Tip: The team continues to be cautious with Johnson. Sitting out his first preseason game should not affect his status on draft day.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) has been ruled out of the team's first preseason game by head coach Bill O'Brien

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick as the team's starting quarterback Tuesday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick should be considered a mid-range backup and a bye-week replacement at best. His value will take a hit if the Andre Johnson situation is not resolved.
