Texans | Brock Osweiler talks chemistry with WRs

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:40:26 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is encouraged by the chemistry he is developing with his receivers following the second preseason game. "I think the receivers are understanding when I want to get the ball out versus man versus maybe a zone coverage. Obviously, I'm learning the body language of each wide receiver when he's going to come out of his break, how he likes his football, where he likes his football. Every single day we're getting better."

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is a low-end quarterback option who should be left to the waiver wire outside of SuperFlex and two-QB leagues. There is some potential in the revamped Houston attack, but fantasy owners should wait to see the offense clicking before relying on Osweiler as anything more than a desperation start.

Texans | Brock Osweiler decent in victory

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:22:18 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 12 of his 19 pass attempts for 124 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler looked a lot more comfortable in this game than his debut. He is going to be just fine as long as DeAndre Hopkins stays healthy, Will Fuller continues to progress and either Jaelen Strong or Braxton Miller can emerge as another viable target. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most standard fantasy formats with some room to move up.

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 | Brock Osweiler comfortable

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 20:47:06 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he felt comfortable calling the plays and making adjustments at the line of scrimmage during practice Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is a bit of an unknown heading into his first season as a full-time starter, and he shouldn't be counted on as more than a mid-range QB2.

Texans | Brock Osweiler a work in progress

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 17:06:08 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he still has a "long way to go" to learn head coach Bill O'Brien's system, but O'Brien said Osweiler has lived up to expectations thus far.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler shouldn't be viewed as more than a mid-range fantasy backup in his first year as a full-time starter.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins, Osweiler progressing

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:41:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler and WR DeAndre Hopkins have progressed in their chemistry, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who said both players are working extremely hard.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has proven that he can succeed no matter who is throwing the football. He's still by far their best receiving option and worth a look in the mid-WR1 group. Osweiler, on the other hand, should not be drafted as a starting fantasy quarterback in his first season with the Texans.

Texans | Brock Osweiler learning new offense

Wed, 11 May 2016 20:14:34 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said Wednesday, May 11, that it has been fun learning a new offense and trying to get comfortable in his new surroundings. "It's fun," Osweiler said. "It's hard to judge that progress because we haven't hit the practice field and gone against a defense, but it's like you speak Spanish your whole life and then all of a sudden one day, they tell you to go learn French and do it in front of 70,000 people."

Fantasy Tip: Having a deep threat and talented receiver like Nuke Hopkins will certainly make things easier, and if Lamar Miller can fill the shoes of the departed Arian Foster, that would be huge, too. Osweiler will have a lot of pressure to perform, and we have really only seen glimpses of brilliance from him. He could be the next Tom Brady, or he could be the next Matt Cassel. It's hard to say at this point.

Texans | Brock Osweiler looking good

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 12:03:36 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is looking good during the team's offseason workouts, according to a source. WR DeAndre Hopkins has been off the charts, too.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler had some success in his first seven NFL starts with the Denver Broncos last year, but he was inconsistent overall. He has the potential to become a low-end QB1 in the right matchups in 2016, but he's safer taken as a backup QB. Hopkins proved he is an elite WR1 and will now have one of the more talented quarterbacks he's ever had throwing to him in Houston.

Texans | Brock Osweiler praised by coach

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 21:01:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler received praise from head coach Bill O'Brien Sunday, March 20. "We studied all of the snaps he had," O'Brien said. "He is tough. He is an accurate passer. I like his leadership. Of all the people who have coached him, everybody spoke highly of him. We are really happy with our decision to sign him."

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien's endorsement isn't surprising, but despite all the praise, Osweiler is best suited as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Texans | More on Brock Osweiler deal

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 09:57:21 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler's deal includes a $12 million Super Bowl bonus and $20 million more in guaranteed base salary, including a $5 million roster bonus this month. He'll have $37 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler joins a Houston club that has beefed up their offense considerably, but with just seven career starts under his belt, it's safe to say that Osweiler is a bit of an unknown. He has some nice weapons around him, but he'll be safer as a midrange fantasy backup to start in Houston.
