Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer split first-team repetitions in offseason workouts Wednesday, May 27, with QB Ryan Mallett. "The tempo (stood out)," said Hoyer. "You can tell we put a lot of work in and guys were just prepared. There weren't a lot of mental mistakes. Guys came ready to go and it was exciting -- got after it a little bit."
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is currently listed as the de-facto starter on the Texans' depth chart, likely because Mallett is coming off a pectoral injury from last year. It's anyone's guess right now as to who will win the starting job in training camp. Hoyer has the experience edge, but Mallett has more upside. Neither quarterback will be anything more than a mediocre QB2 in fantasy, though.

Updating an ongoing story, Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is doing well in his recovery from microfracture surgery. Clowney has been working hard at rehabbing the knee, according to Texans head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett is expected to compete with Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Neither quarterback would be a great option in fantasy leagues next season and would only be No. 2 quarterbacks if they are selected in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer may take longer to get used to a new offense, but he has more experience than Mallett. Whoever starts will be a backup fantasy quarterback and/or bye-week replacement at best.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans have high hopes for Strong, who fell into the third round in this year's NFL draft. He lacks big-play speed, but there are targets to be won in the Texans' passing game. Reporting out of shape isn't the best sign for a player whose fantasy value is on the fringe in standard drafts.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was called on the best receivers in the league by head coach Bill O'Brien, and the Texans were willing to part ways with WR Andre Johnson in part because the coaching staff believes Hopkins is ready to be the No. 1 option in the passing game.
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a career year in 2014 despite a revolving door at the quarterback position, and as the unquestioned top target in 2015, he should at least be a solid WR2.

Fantasy Tip: Strong will have a chance to contribute right away. As of now, he's a WR5 flyer to take near the end of drafts. That could elevate through training camp and the preseason.
