Fantasy Tip: All three of these guys have really good matchups against one of the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year in the New Orleans Saints. Polk and Washington aren't too reliable, though, but Hoyer could be a nice sleeper play on FantasyScore in Week 12 as the Saints have allowed a league-high 28 touchdown passes to quarterbacks this year.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The Saints rank 31st in the NFL against the pass, allowing 293.1 yards per game while giving up 28 touchdowns, worst in the NFL. They have also given up 13 pass plays of 20 or more yards with a league-high 13 pass plays of 40 or more yards.
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) will get his quarterback back under center, too, as Brian Hoyer returns from concussion. Look for a huge stat line for Hopkins and his FantasyScore owners.

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is set to return in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints, and he will face the NFL's 31st-ranked pass defense. The Saints allowed 293.1 yards per game, and an NFL-high 28 passing touchdown. The Saints are also worst in the league allowed 44 pass plays of 20 or more yards, and 13 pass plays of 40 or more yards.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is not a top-notch FantasyScore option normally, but he is a must-start since he is facing the leaky Saints pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Hoyer ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0%) will be good to go in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. The whole Texans' offense has a great matchup versus New Orleans, but Washington may be the odd one out as he has played inconsistently this year. Hoyer is worth a start, though.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer and the Texans have a tremendous matchup against the New Orleans Saints next week. He's not a top-tier starter, but he could still put up big numbers on Sunday.

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates led the team to a second straight win in Week 11, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, Nov. 22, that when QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is healthy Yates will head back to the bench. "Hoyer is our starter," O'Brien said. "When he comes back, when he's healthy, he'll come back in there and we've spoken to T.J. about that."
Fantasy Tip: Yates faces a very favorable matchup in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints, should Hoyer has a setback or not be able to go.

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will remain the starting quarterback when he is healthy, head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, Nov. 22. Hoyer's concussion symptoms have subsided and he is expected to start in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. "Hoyer is our starter," O'Brien said. "When he comes back, when he's healthy, he'll come back in there and we've spoken to T.J. about that."
Fantasy Tip: T.J. Yates has led the team to consecutive wins while subbing for the injured Hoyer. Whichever quarterback starts in Week 12 faces a very favorable matchup against a Saints pass defense which has been very poor this season.

Fantasy Tip: Blue has been dominating the touches since Arian Foster was lost for the year, but he hasn't averaged more than 2.8 yards per carry in his last three games. That being said, he could be worth a look at FantasyScore in Week 12 against a porous New Orleans Saints defense.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts had been used strictly as a receiver coming into the game, but if the Texans are committed to using him in different ways, it could boost his value going forward.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 16:57:29 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had gone three straight games without reaching 100 yards, but he has found the end zone in three straight. He has already surpassed 1,000 yards for the year, and he remains of the top options at his position at FantasyScore.
