Texans QB Tom Savage 'getting the majority of the reps' as QB1

Monday, June 5, 2017, 8:13pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Tom Savage, entering his fourth season in Houston, is getting the majority of the reps with the Texans’ first-team offense and he said that the change is helping him “a lot” to build chemistry with the team’s receiving corps. While Savage did start two games late last season, it can be difficult to build a rapport with the players who will be catching his passes in the midst of a playoff race.

Fantasy Impact:

Unless Savage lights it up, first round pick Deshaun Watson figures to get a chance to start in 2017, though it looks like Savage will open the season as the QB1.

Browns get a second round pick and Brock Osweiler from the Texans

PFT - [Full Article]

How big a mistake did the Texans make when they signed Brock Osweiler last year? So big that they’re giving up a second-round draft pick to get out from under his contract.

Osweiler is being shipped to Cleveland, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The compensation? The Texans have to give the Browns a 2018 second-round draft pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick. The Browns ship a 2017 fourth-round pick to Houston.

That’s right, the Texans are trading Osweiler away and giving up better draft picks than they’re getting back, just to get the Browns to take Osweiler’s contract off their hands.

Fantasy Impact:

Essentially, the Browns are taking on Osweiler's contract to get a second round pick from the Texans. Rumor has it, they may cut him after the trade. Meanwhile, the Texans clear enough cap space to make a run at Tony Romo.

Texans promote Mike Vrabel to DC, retain Romeo Crennel

Albert Breer - [Full Article]

Per sources, the Texans are promoting LBs coach Mike Vrabel to defensive coordinator. Romeo Crennel expected to stay, likely as ass't HC.

Fantasy Impact:

In the last two seasons, Houston's defense has ranked in the top 11 in both yards and points allowed, and last year it gave up the fewest yards in the league, and that was without J.J. Watt in the fold. Both coaches have been promoted and it's not entirely clear who will be running the defense, though Vrabel's job title indicates that he's in charge.

The Texans and Godsey have mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bill O'Brien has been calling the plays most of the year. The Texans were 29th in points scored and in yards gained, yet still managed to win the AFC South.
