New York Giants vs. Houston Texans

*Rostered in 8.0% of Yahoo! leagues and 5.5% of ESPN leagues

The New York Giants’ boast upper-third rates in quarterback pressure (21.6%) and passing yards allowed per game (206.9). New York’s 1.4 touchdowns allowed per game are tied for the top four in the NFL and their defenders pack a well-aimed punch, having tied with the Seattle Seahawks for a league-high 0.11 forced fumbles per drive rate.

Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills has flubbed his way to a bottom-12 interception rate (2.5%) while also dropping a helpful 0.5 fumbles per game. His offensive line does him no favors, allowing a bottom-three 24.5% quarterback pressure rate.

Houston’s uninspiring offense is averaging just 16.6 points per game, the fourth fewest in the NFL.
