Texans | Ryan Mallett slept in

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:52:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett missed practice Thursday, Aug. 27, because he overslept. Mallett was present for meetings later on, however. He will also be at practice Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett is currently the backup quarterback for the Texans, so he doesn't have any fantasy value right now.

Texans | Ryan Mallett not at practice

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:07:57 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (personal) was not at practice Thursday, Aug. 27, due to a personal issue, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Mallett is healthy, there's really nothing to worry about here. He'll remain the backup quarterback once the season begins and should be left on waivers in fantasy leagues.

Texans | Houston not ready to name starting QB

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:19:05 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett have been competing for the starting quarterback job, but head coach Bill O'Brien wants to see them play more before making a decision. "I need to see a little bit more and I want to give Ryan a chance to start a game, and put some more thought into it. Then make a decision at some point whether it's next week or the week after. At some point, we'll make a decision," O'Brien said.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer and Mallett should see solid playing time in the next two preseason games, which could help in the decision for O'Brien. Neither is a strong fantasy option, so the winner of the competition will probably be only a No. 2 quarterback.

Texans | HOU QB announcement still not set

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:58:42 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett still don't know who will start this season. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he doesn't know when a starter will be named. Hoyer started the Texans' first preseason game, but O'Brien said Mallett would start the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: This is a true quarterback battle. The decision may not be made until after the final preseason game. Hoyer may have an advantage considering he has more experience. Plus, he started the first preseason game. Neither should be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 07:57:09 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett will be the starting quarterback for the second preseason game against the Denver Broncos Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett is competing with Brian Hoyer for the starting job, so this will be an important start for Mallett. The winner of the starting job should not be seen as more than a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Texans | Two QBs listed as starter for Texans

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 15:37:51 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett are both listed as the starting quarterback on the Texans' depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is still expected to start when the season begins, but we'll see what unfolds during the preseason. Neither Hoyer nor Mallett deserve starter consideration in fantasy leagues, however.

Texans | No favorite for Houston QB job

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 09:23:18 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett remain in a close competition for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said he believes both quarterbacks could start for the team.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans likely will use the preseason to determine if Hoyer or Mallett wil start this season. Neither is a great quarterback, and they should not be seen as more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Texans | Houston has close QB competition

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 12:38:56 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer are competing for the starting quarterback job and there is no clear favorite for the job, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Hoyer appeared to be more comfortable than Mallett during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation since there is a chance the team could name a starter before the beginning of training camp. The winner of the competition will have some weapons to work with one offense but likely would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Texans | HOU may name QB before camp

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 10:28:12 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer are candidates for the starting quarterback job, and head coach Bill O'Brien indicated the team may name a starting quarterback before the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett and Hoyer have been competing during offseason workouts, and O'Brien could make his decision based on those practices. Neither quarterback has great fantasy value and would be No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks if they win the job.

Texans | No timetable for HOU's QB competition

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 11:07:22 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett are both seeing time with the first-team offense during organized team activities, but head coach Bill O'Brien said there is no timetable for naming a starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer and Mallett likely will continue to compete for the job during training camp and the preseason. Fantasy owners should consider the winner of the job as no more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Texans | Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett splitting reps

Thu, 28 May 2015 11:14:59 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer split first-team repetitions in offseason workouts Wednesday, May 27, with QB Ryan Mallett. "The tempo (stood out)," said Hoyer. "You can tell we put a lot of work in and guys were just prepared. There weren't a lot of mental mistakes. Guys came ready to go and it was exciting -- got after it a little bit."

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is currently listed as the de-facto starter on the Texans' depth chart, likely because Mallett is coming off a pectoral injury from last year. It's anyone's guess right now as to who will win the starting job in training camp. Hoyer has the experience edge, but Mallett has more upside. Neither quarterback will be anything more than a mediocre QB2 in fantasy, though.

Texans | Ryan Mallett ready to go

Thu, 14 May 2015 12:34:16 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) said he is feeling better each day and does not think he has any restrictions from the pectoral injury he suffered during the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett is expected to compete with Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Neither quarterback would be a great option in fantasy leagues next season and would only be No. 2 quarterbacks if they are selected in drafts.

Texans | Houston QBs to share reps

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:17:37 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett will split first-team repetitions once organized team activities (OTAs) begin later this month.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer may take longer to get used to a new offense, but he has more experience than Mallett. Whoever starts will be a backup fantasy quarterback and/or bye-week replacement at best.

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 07:07:17 -0700

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett agreed to a two-year deal with the Texans Monday, March 9.

Texans | Ryan Mallett recovering from surgery

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 13:43:09 -0800

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) is recovering from surgery on a torn pectoral muscle. Mallett said he's already thrown a football and that the recovery process is day-by-day.

Fantasy Tip: Again, there's still no guarantee that Mallett will even stay with the team. Even if he does stay in Houston, he'll need to win the starting quarterback job. And if is the starter, he'll still only be a low-end QB2 at best.

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 13:12:14 -0800

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett said he'd like stay with the Texans and hopes both parties can get a new contract worked out. Mallett is recovering from surgery on a torn muscle in his pectoral. Mallett said the recovery is a day-by-day process.

Fantasy Tip: If Mallett does stay and wins the starting quarterback job, he'll still be no more than a backup fantasy quarterback.

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett is likely to be re-signed by the team this offseason, in the opinion of HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty.

Texans | Houston keeping QB options open

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 09:38:45 -0800

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett and Case Keenum will all be evaluated by the coaching staff this offseason, but head coach Bill O'Brien said the team is keeping their options open at the position. "We'll make the right decision and it will probably be a competition," O'Brien said. "It will be something where guys come in and compete and have to win the job and that's the way it should be and that's what we're looking to do." Mallett will become a free agent in March.

Fantasy Tip: It's really anyone's guess as to what the Texans will do at the QB position to start the 2015 season. Mallett has the most upside, but it's unknown if Houston will try to bring him back this offseason. No matter what, whoever has the job at the end of training camp won't be anything more than a low-end backup quarterback.

Texans | Ryan Mallett to IR

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:19:34 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 26, and QB Thaddeus Lewis was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: You can obviously drop Mallett wherever you owned him. Ryan Fitzpatrick ($4,600) will start in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, and he's a very deep sleeper option for your starting quarterback in daily leagues.

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:34:02 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett has been informed by the team that they would like him to return in 2015, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: With Mallett out for the rest of this year, you can forget about him at FantasyScore. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to return to the starting job, and he could be a sleeper in Week 13 against the Houston Texans. However, the Texans could also go to Tom Savage.

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 10:05:47 -0800

Texans | Ryan Mallett should play

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:32:26 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (chest) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett won't cost you much at all at FantasyScore ($3,900), but the Bengals haven't been terrible against opposing quarterbacks this season. There isn't a whole lot of upside for the rookie gunslinger in Week 12.

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:59:17 -0800

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 15:15:56 -0800

Texans | Ryan Mallett could receive his chance

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 13:39:36 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett will see his chance as the starting quarterback if the team endures a long losing streak this season. Mallett has attempted just nine passes in four seasons in the league. The team has an investment in Mallett for their future, and they'd like to see how he fares in an extended audition versus real NFL competition.

Fantasy Tip: It's premature thinking to assume that Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the boot at some point. Mallett is a bit of an unknown, so relying on him for fantasy purposes if he becomes the starter is risky.
