Ian Rapoport, Twitter - [Full Article]

Sources: Texans are poised to make a quarterback change. They are preparing to play with QB Ryan Mallett as their starter vs. the Panthers.

Related Players: Brian Hoyer

Fantasy Impact: 

Brian Hoyer completed 4/8 passes to DeAndre Hopkins for 39 yards and a touchdown. Mallett completed 5/5 passes to Hopkins for 59 yards and a touchdown. He also found Hopkins for a two-point conversion and the receiver drew a 15-yard pass interference penalty on another Mallett attempt. It's a small sample size, but it doesn't appear that there will be any "drop off" from Hoyer to Mallett as far as Hopkins is concerned.
