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.

Fantasy Impact:

For the Texans, it looks like Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins all have a great shot to play on Monday night against the Steelers. It's a better matchup for Foster and the running game as the Steelers rank just 20th in allowing fantasy points to RBs, and as a result we have Foster third on our RB list for Week 7. While in the passing game, the Steelers are sixth in allowing fantasy points to WRs. Johnson is ranked 18th this week and Hopkins is 26th.

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Johnson is active. Johnson practice all week, and hasn’t done much all season, but he’s still a target hog and the Texans may fall behind early in this one. The Colts are a bad matchup for receivers, but the Texans may find themselves in garbage time. As for Foster, we’re expecting his usual workload. He may not reach 23 carries like in Week 5, but he was listed as probable, so the hamstring injury isn’t a big concern. Alfred Blue may see a few extra touches on a short week.
