This isn't really a shock as the team indicated it was a possibility. Yates will take over the rest of the way at QB. Savage is a free agent and may not be back next year. We had a report today that Deshaun Watson's ACL rehab is going well and is clearly slated to be the starter, so the Texans may be in the market for a backup heading into 2018.
HOU QB T.J. Yates - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Indianapolis Colts
After briefly leaving last Monday’s game against the Steelers due to a head injury, T.J. Yates returned to action and threw a TD toss to DeAndre Hopkins. In the blowout loss, he was just 7-of-16 for 83 yards and was sacked 6 times. While he’s tossed for 4 touchdowns during the past three weeks, Yates has not eclipsed 200 yards during that stretch. There is no reason to start at Indianapolis this week, especially without Hopkins to throw to.
