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.

Broncos | Mike Glennon a trade target for Denver?

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:48:17 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is being mentioned as a possible trade target for the Denver Broncos after they lost free-agent QB Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans on Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler's departure means the Broncos will be linked with just about every available free-agent quarterback or any signal-caller who has supposedly been on the trade block recently. Glennon would be a serviceable fallback option if the Broncos chose to go in that direction, but Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III are better fits in head coach Gary Kubiak's offense. Regardless of which one winds up in Denver, none of them figure to be anything more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | Brock Osweiler contract details

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:38:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Houston Texans are giving QB Brock Osweiler a four-year deal worth $72 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is still a work in progress after seven starts for the Denver Broncos last year, but he has promise with a very strong arm. He joins a Texans team that also just brought Lamar Miller on board for the backfield. DeAndre Hopkins is one of the best young wideouts in the game. All the weapons are in place for Osweiler to succeed, but you'll want to be patient and take him as your fantasy backup in 2016.

Texans | Brock Osweiler agrees with Houston

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:16:15 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler has agreed in principle to a deal with the Houston Texans Wednesday, March 9, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is official yet, but it looks like Osweiler decided to move his talents elsewhere. The Texans are also on the verge of signing Lamar Miller, so Houston's offense is about to see a significant boost. Osweiler will have one of the best young receivers in the game now in DeAndre Hopkins, too. Consider the Arizona State product a fantasy backup target with upside for a lot more.

Texans | Houston making run for Brock Osweiler

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:55:33 -0800

The Houston Texans are making a good run for Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler. However, it's unlikely that he leaves the Broncos, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler made seven successful starts last year for the Broncos, and he showed, despite a lack of experience, that he can put up decent numbers in the NFL with a starting gig. He would have the weapons around him in Houston to be successful, but he's safer as your fantasy backup in 2016.

Broncos | Denver ramping up efforts for Osweiler

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:31:05 -0800

The Denver Broncos are ramping up their efforts to re-sign impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler Wednesday, March 9, and negotiations are ongoing. It's either the Broncos or Houston Texans for Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler was successful with Denver in a seven-week run as their starter last year with Peyton Manning hurt, and he is a good fit in Gary Kubiak's offense. He's still a bit raw, so he'll have his ups and downs, but he's clearly the most attractive remaining QB on the market. Wherever he lands, he'll be more of a fantasy backup.

Broncos | Colin Kaepernick could land in Denver

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 07:43:40 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick appears to be the Denver Broncos' backup plan if the Broncos are unable to re-sign QB Brock Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: Kaep's value would increase in Denver, but he'll be a QB2 option in fantasy regardless.
