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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: It was previously believed that Polk ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) would be active versus the Jets. Alfred Blue ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Jonathan Grimes ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will split time in the Houston backfield this afternoon, although neither player is a recommended FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) had just four carries for 14 yards in Week 10's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and isn't a great FantasyScore choice. Alfred Blue ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Jonathan Grimes ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to see the bulk of the carries for Houston but neither of them is a viable fantasy option either, especially against a Jets team that has allowed the fewest rushing yards in the league.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets defense has been beat in recent weeks, but Yates ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should still not inspire any confidence in daily gamers in his first start of the year. Stay away.

Fantasy Tip: Now that it's official that T.J. Yates is starting under center for Houston against a very capable defense, neither Washington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) nor Novak are very attractive to fantasy owners this weekend.
