Texans | Houston not committing to Brock Osweiler

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:04:34 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler received a slight but expected vote of non-confidence Monday, Jan. 16, as head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters it is too early to know if Osweiler will be the starting quarterback at season because the team has a lot of evaluating to do.

Fantasy Tip: The odds are overwhelming Houston adds a quarterback via the draft or free agency who can give Osweiler and/or Tom Savage a run for their money. With most if not all of the league's top-ranked defense likely to return in 2017, the pressure will be on the Texans' brass to improve the offense to the point to where they can make a Super Bowl run. A first-round quarterback selection cannot be ruled out, nor can the possibility Osweiler becomes the league's most highly paid backup.

Texans | Brock Osweiler regrets lost opportunities

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 19:14:52 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he is disappointed he was unable to capitalize on the opportunities that presented themselves in the AFC Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Despite signing a big deal to join the Texans, Osweiler is no lock to start in 2017 after a terrible season. Even if he does start, he doesn't need to be drafted.

Texans | Brock Osweiler melts down in second half

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:24:41 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler played turnover-free ball in the first half before throwing three interceptions in the second half in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots. He finished 23-of-40 for 198 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Thus ends a wildly inconsistent and mostly disappointing season for Osweiler, who found C.J. Fiedorowicz from 10 yards out for his only score. Despite being only one season into a four-year, $72 million deal, the Texans will need to seriously consider adding another signal-caller in the offseason after spending most of 2016 calling plays out of fear their top quarterback would lose games for them. Osweiler will be far off the fantasy radar in most leagues in 2017.

Texans | Brock Osweiler to start again

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 17:27:12 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 14 of his 25 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown and ran six times for 15 yards and a score in a 27-14 win over the Oakland Raiders Saturday, Jan. 7, and head coach Bill O'Brien said Osweiler will start in the divisional round.

Fantasy Tip: Compared to his usual numbers, this was a strong outing from Osweiler. A much tougher matchup likely awaits him next week, and he will be a reach for fantasy owners, even has a low-priced DFS play.

Texans | Brock Osweiler downplays argument

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 21:09:54 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler didn't elaborate on an argument he had at halftime with head coach Bill O'Brien during Week 17, and O'Brien chalked the situation up to the intensity of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is back in the starting lineup after a brief benching, and with Tom Savage ruled out for the playoff game, the Texans have no other choice but to live and die with Osweiler. He has been awful this year, but with limited options available and a friendly matchup against the Raiders, he could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS games.

Texans | Brock Osweiler regains starting job

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 10:40:45 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler was named the starter for the team's AFC Wild-Card game against the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: This news likely confirms the playoffs will kick off with Osweiler and rookie Connor Cook under center. Riveting. Tom Savage is still in the league's concussion protocol and didn't exactly perform well enough in his brief time as the starter to give the Texans a reason to wait for him to return. Osweiler did manage to get DeAndre Hopkins involved last week, but it is going to be difficult to trust any Texan offensive players outside of Lamar Miller and perhaps C.J. Fiedorowicz this weekend.

Texans | Brock Osweiler expected to start

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 15:38:35 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is expected to start against the Oakland Raiders in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs due to QB Tom Savage (concussion) dealing with a concussion in Week 17, in the opinion of John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Head coach Bill O'Brien will make an official decision on the starting quarterback Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has one of the better matchups of the week against the Oakland Raiders, but he has been consistently horrible throughout his first season with the Texans. Continue to avoid Osweiler.

Texans | Tom Savage has concussion

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 12:21:51 -0800

Updating previous items, Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) was determined to have a concussion at halftime of the Sunday, Jan. 1, game against the Tennessee Titans. QB Brock Osweiler is in the game.

Fantasy Tip: This could be worth monitoring in the coming days. Obviously Savage's health comes first, so the team may have to go with Osweiler in postseason play if Savage isn't cleared in concussion protocol. If you take part in playoff leagues, this will be a big factor. Otherwise, if your season is over, there could be a battle at QB heading into 2017.
