Texans | Jadeveon Clowney to be used as stand-up LB

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 14:23:44 -0700

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney will likely be used as a stand-up outside linebacker like former New England Patriots LB Willie McGinest was used, according to former Patriots LB Ted Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Being used in this fashion gives Clowney a few extra steps to maneuver around offensive linemen. This would give him an advantage compared to being down on the line where he could get jammed by more powerful blockers.

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel plans to be flexible with his defense and move guys around to create different looks for the opponent this year in his 3-4 defense.

Watt could line up in a three-point stance or he might stand up. LB Jadeveon Clowney can stand in the base defense and drop in passing situations.

Texans | Jadeveon Clowney selected first overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 17:16:07 -0700

The Houston Texans selected South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: They're not concerned with all the negatives. They'll squeeze him into this defense to try pairing him with J.J. Watt. Houston's fantasy defense is still backup material but, if all goes right, could be playable during the year. In IDPs, Clowney is a middle- to late-rounds pick with a lot of downside.
