Coach Bill O’Brien named Mallett the starter Wednesday, after debating during recent days whether to make a change.
“This might be the thing that helps our team,” O’Brien said at NRG Stadium. “I might be wrong.”
O’Brien said Mallett will be given a full shot to hold the starting role.
From a receiving standpoint, the Texans were generating 1.00 fantasy points per pass attempt (1 point per 10 receiving yards plus six points per touchdown divided by the total number of pass attempts). The league average is 0.98, so Ryan Fitzpatrick was decidedly average in helping his receivers to produce receiving yardage and touchdowns. Mallett will have to play pretty well in order to maintain the fantasy value of DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson. Mallett has the Week 10 bye to prepare, and then faces a couple of difficult matchups (CLE & CIN) before the schedule gets easier.

Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. ohnson typically rests early in the week. He has a great matchup with a shaky Eagles secondary this week.
If there's one subject that has been met with nothing but positive commentary this week, following the Buccaneers' overtime loss to Minnesota, it's the ever-improving play of Mike Evans, the seventh overall pick in this year's draft. By the raw numbers, Evans has been consistent all season catching at least four passes in each game he's played and usually falling somewhere between 50 and 80 yards per week. But everyone from his quarterback to his coordinator to himself believes that Evans is riding an upward trajectory towards potential stardom.
After Evans caught four passes for 78 yards (and had one other big play erased by a holding penalty back at the line), Head Coach Lovie Smith said in his day-after-game press conference that the Bucs' offense needs to get the ball in Evans' hands more often.
