Texans WR Andre Johnson must undergo the league’s five-step concussion protocol before his status for Sunday's game at Indianapolis can be determined.

“That’s exactly where it stands though,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “He has to pass the concussion test to be able to be cleared. I would say that’s definitely a day-to-day thing.”

Fantasy Impact:

If Johnson can't start, O'Brien said wide receiver DeVier Posey is a candidate to play. Posey has been inactive for each game this season. Johnson left early in the second quarter after suffering a helmet-to-helmet hit by Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith. The All-Pro receiver headed for the locker room after being examined on the field by team’s medical staff.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson has suffered two concussions in less than two years. He received a concussion Week 2 against Tennessee last season. We'll continue to update his status leading up to Week 15.

Texans name Ryan Mallett starting quarterback

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 12:41pm

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Ryan Mallett is the Texans’ starting quarterback.

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Bucs Beat: Team wants to get the ball to WR Mike Evans 'more often'

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 10:05pm

Buccaneers.com - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

Evans' per game numbers are very similar to Andre Johnson, who is fantasy football's #28 receiver. Evans has been outproducing Vincent Jackson, who is having a disappointing season.
