O'Brien: QB Brock Osweiler has 'command of the offense'

ESPN - [Full Article]

After three preseason games, Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said the thing that stands out about quarterback Brock Osweiler is the way he commands the offense.

Not that it came easy.

The story has been told about how hard Osweiler worked this offseason to learn the Texans' offense. O'Brien and offensive coordinator George Godsey's scheme is complex, and several players have said it took them more than a year to truly "get it."

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said Osweiler spent a lot of time learning the offense quickly and that it seems to be paying off. There doesn't seem to be a ton of fantasy hype around Osweiler with lots of higher-ranked options, but Osweiler has a stud WR in DeAndre Hopkins as well as some other up-and-comers. The Texans will likely stick to a run-first game plan, but the run game should also open things up, especially for play action. Osweiler at least should have some streaming value this season and is ranked 26th on our QB list.
