Texans | Tom Savage impressing in training camp

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 07:18:01 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage has had an impressive first week of training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. "He's really worked hard to change his body, become stronger, become quicker, quicker release," O'Brien said. "He has a much better knowledge of our offense. It takes a while for that position. The only thing Tom needs is an opportunity. Tom is a good football player and he's put a lot of time in to get to where he is right now." Savage is competing with QBs Brandon Weeden and T.J. Yates to serve as the backup to QB Brock Osweiler.

Texans | T.J. Yates placed on IR

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:47:15 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 21, after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: If Brian Hoyer is healthy, he'll be the starting quarterback this weekend; if he's not, then Brandon Weeden would probably be the leading candidate to start. Hoyer would be worth considering, but Weeden should be avoided. Stay tuned.

Texans | T.J. Yates has torn ACL

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 10:49:33 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) has been diagnosed with torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer and Brandon Weeden will be candidates to start for the final two weeks of the regular season, so owners should keep an eye out on the situation to see which player starts. Both quarterbacks have played well at times this season but they are not great fantasy options.

Texans | T.J. Yates out for the season

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 12:54:28 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the team's Week 15 game and will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer and Brandon Weeden are options to start in Week 16 depending on how Hoyer recovers from his concussion. Neither are strong option for fantasy owners and should be passed over in most leagues.

Texans | T.J. Yates, Cecil Shorts out

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 11:44:36 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) and WR Cecil Shorts (groin) have been ruled out for the rest of the game in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: With Yates and Shorts out, Brandon Weeden and DeAndre Hopkins could become the new hookup for the Texans. Nate Washington and Ryan Griffin may also see more targets. Brian Hoyer may return next week, though, so stay tuned to Houston's quarterback situation.

Texans | T.J. Yates injures knee

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 11:24:44 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) went to the locker room with a knee injury in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a serious injury for Yates, but nothing is official yet. With Yates out, Brandon Weeden takes over as the Texans' starting quarterback. This is an avoidable situation as long as Brian Hoyer isn't starting.

Texans | Brian Hoyer ruled out

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 10:41:43 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts. QB T.J. Yates will start the game.

Fantasy Tip: Yates ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been adequate in guiding the Texans to several wins this year, but his fantasy ceiling is limited. You should downgrade all of Houston's receivers as a result, but DeAndre Hopkins remains a must-start in traditional leagues. Indy is a great matchup for quarterbacks this year, but Yates is still a dart throw in daily formats.

Texans | Brian Hoyer doubtful for Week 15

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 13:24:00 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion, neck, wrist) is doubtful to play in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts after he suffered his second concussion of the season in Week 14, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Hoyer was sacked five times against the New England Patriots. He suffered memory loss when he had a concussion against the Cincinnati Bengals Nov. 16. QB T.J. Yates is being prepared to start against the Colts.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts are one of the best fantasy matchups for quarterbacks, and although Yates will be dirt cheap on FantasyScore, he's still too risky to trust. Houston's receiving game will take a hit with Yates in there, although DeAndre Hopkins is still a must-start in traditional leagues.

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates is preparing to start Sunday, Dec. 20, with QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) sidelined with a concussion, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Yates would face off against the Indianapolis Colts, but he doesn't have much upside in fantasy.
