Houston Texans QB Tom Savage has been named the team's backup quarterback by head coach Bill O'Brien.
Fantasy Tip: Savage was competing with Brandon Weeden for the job and has apparently emerged as the victor in this position battle. This probably won't have much of a fantasy impact, if any, though it's worth noting that current starter Brock Osweiler dealt with injury last season.

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.

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will likely be the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart in 2016 if QB Brian Hoyer is traded.
Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:42:29 -0800
Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is intent on winning the starting job, especially in the wake of the news that team owner Bob McNair has reportedly made it very clear to general manager Rick Smith and head coach Bill O'Brien that the Texans replace Brian Hoyer.
Fantasy Tip: There seems to be some thought that Savage will compete with a first- or second-round rookie for the starting job in training camp. The loser of that competition would then fall behind Hoyer, who the Texans seem to like in a backup role. Even in O'Brien's quarterback-friendly system, Savage or the yet-to-be-named rookie would likely be little more than a low-end QB2 at best in 2016.
