Texans QB Brock Osweiler, WR DeAndre Hopkins still have work to do

ESPN - [Full Article]

Though Brock Osweiler and DeAndre Hopkins were able to connect to seal the Texans' win, the two weren't able to do so for most of the game. Osweiler targeted Hopkins 13 times, but that was just the receiver's fifth catch of the day. The Jaguars were able to cover him well by having No. 3 overall pick cornerback Jalen Ramsey follow him all game.

“We’re not looking for connections, we’re looking for wins," HC Bill O'Brien said. "Whatever it takes to win the game, so if it involves 20 catches to Hopkins then great. I’m sure DeAndre will tell you the thing that he cares about the most is winning. So that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to win these games the way we think they need to be won.”

Fantasy Impact:

The two connected on a 10-yard pass that pretty much clinched a win for the Texans, but overall Osweiler strugged to connect with the WRs. Osweiler once again went to his three tight ends often. The trio -- C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson -- combined for seven catches for 40 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets. The longest play was a 13-yard catch by Fiedorowicz.
