Texans | Tom Savage to start first preseason game

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 13:25:09 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will be under center for the first snap of Houston's first preseason game. Head coach Bill O'Brien doesn't know yet how long Savage or any of the quarterbacks will play.

Fantasy Tip: Savage appears to have the edge in the quarterback battle with Deshaun Watson. It's a battle that could be fought up until the last preseason game, though. Either way, both guys should only be drafted as backup fantasy quarterbacks.

Texans | Tom Savage 'terrific' in camp so far

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 10:11:53 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is clearly atop the depth chart and has been "terrific" through the first two weeks of training camp, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has never lacked for talent - he was considered one of the more gifted quarterbacks in the 2014 draft - but he has always been short on opportunity and durability. Along with Friday's endorsement from DeAndre Hopkins, it appears he has a great shot to enter the season as the Texans' starter. First-round rookie Deshaun Watson is waiting in the wings and proving to be a quick study, but Houston wants to ease him into the lineup. Savage is presumably giving the Texans the chance to do that.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins endorses Tom Savage

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 20:00:13 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins believes QB Tom Savage should open the year as the starter. "If anybody should be a judge of quarterbacks, I've played with the most quarterbacks in NFL history throughout my first four years," Hopkins said. "So I put the stamp on Savage, and I think that's all that needs to be said about that."

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback situation in Houston still isn't ideal, but Hopkins is no worse than a WR2 this season.

Texans | Tom Savage receives stamp of approval

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 12:01:15 -0700

Houston Texans QB DeAndre Hopkins appears to be in favor of QB Tom Savage opening the season as the quarterback. "If anybody should be a judge of quarterbacks, I've played with the most quarterbacks in NFL history throughout my first four years. So I put the stamp on Savage, and I think that's all that needs to be said about that," Hopkins said.

Fantasy Tip: Despite public perception, Savage has been the favorite to start Week 1 all along, if for no other reason than to bring along first-round pick Deshaun Watson slowly. With that said, Savage must start fast in order to keep his job for any length of time, although it certainly helps that Hopkins is willing to vouch for him. Still, Savage can be ignored in fantasy virtually everywhere outside of two-quarterback leagues.

Texans | Houston won't rotate QBs

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 18:26:32 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage and QB Deshaun Watson won't be used in a two-quarterback system, head coach Bill O'Brien said Saturday, July 29. "I'm not going to alternate quarterbacks in and out of there," O'Brien said. "I don't think that's good for the team."

Fantasy Tip: Savage is still the frontrunner to open the season as the starter, but Watson is the future and has the much higher ceiling for fantasy purposes. Make sure to stash Watson in all keeper formats.

Texans | Tom Savage in line to start?

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 18:41:48 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is ahead of QB Deshaun Watson in "how he functions with the offense" heading into training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Savage's experience could make him the starter in Week 1, but he really isn't worth your time in fantasy formats. On the other hand, Watson should be stashed in all keeper formats. He has long-term QB1 potential.

Texans | Tom Savage still in lead for QB job

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:24:07 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is still considered the leading candidate for the starting No. 1 quarterback but will have to earn the job during training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans selected Deshaun Watson in the draft, but Savage likely will begin the 2017 season as the starting quarterback. Savage threw for 461 yards in his three games this past season and has been working on his chemistry with the receivers during offseason workouts. Owners in all leagues should avoid Savage in all drafts.

Texans | Tom Savage taking advantage of reps

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 21:01:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said taking reps with the first-team offense has been a great opportunity to work on his timing and communication with WR DeAndre Hopkins and the other starters.

Fantasy Tip: Savage is just keeping the seat warm for Deshaun Watson, and even if he breaks camp as the starter, Savage is low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | Tom Savage hungry to remain starting QB

Mon, 08 May 2017 19:20:47 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said "it doesn't matter if a coach says you're the starter" and that he will go out there and "play like I have to play to keep this job." He added: "You have to perform. I know that, and that's the attitude I have."

Fantasy Tip: Savage has the exact mentality he should be having as a three-year veteran who has never held a full-time starting job in the NFL, but with his limited ceiling, he won't be a recommended option out of the gate for any fantasy leagues. The 27-year-old does have some fine weapons around him, though, so it might not be a bad idea to monitor him through the beginning of the upcoming campaign, just in case quarterback help is desired.

Texans | Deshaun Watson will have chance to start

Thu, 04 May 2017 18:32:35 -0700

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will have a chance to compete with QB Tom Savage for the starting quarterback job, general manager Rick Smith said Thursday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has to be considered the frontrunner to break camp as the starter, but if Watson were to win the job, he would be worth a flier as a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues. Watson has even more appeal in keeper formats, and he should be in the conversation to be the first quarterback selected in rookie drafts.
